Rainer Schuettler will play in his first imbledon semifinal tomorrow. The German saved a match point in the fifth set and went on to defeat Arnaud Clement 6-3, 5-7, 7-6, 6-7, 8-6 in a quarterfinals match that
was tied at a set apiece yesterday evening when play was called
because of fading light.

Roger Federer against Marat Safin.
