All Action, All Day: Mardy Fish came back from a set down to defeat Canadian Frank Dancevic in the quarter-finals today, advancing to his first Newport semi-final. This marks Fish's fourth straight semi-final and his second on grass, after finishing runner-up in the final at the AEGON Championships prior to Wimbledon. In a dynamic quarter-final match that had fans on the edge of their seats today, qualifier Richard Bloomfield defeated fellow first-time ATP World Tour quarter-finalist Ryan Harrison 5-7, 7-6(3), 7-5. World No. 552 Bloomfield had won only one tour-level match (1-10 record) prior to his run at Newport and has lost just one set en route to the semi-finals. In doubles action, Australians Carsten Ball and Chris Guccione advanced to the doubles final with a 7-5, 7-6(3) win over Jonathan Erlich and Scott Lipsky. In the final they will play the winner of Marc Gicquel and Santiago Ventura and Santiago Gonzalez and Travis Rettenmaier.
