David Ferrer, the No. 4 seed from Spain, ended Tommy Robredo’s historic run at Roland Garros, beating his fellow countryman 6-2, 6-1, 6-1.
In the previous three rounds, Robredo came back each time from two sets to love down, winning in five sets, a feat which hadn’t been done since 1927.
The Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, the No. 6 seed, pulled off the upset, beating Roger Federer 7-5, 6-3, 6-3.
Tsonga and Ferrer will play on Friday to determine who will advance to the final.
