Ferrero into last four
Juan Carlos Ferrero
Juan Carlos Ferrero moved into the last four of the Australian Open with a straight-sets win over Hicham Arazi.

The Spaniard came through 6-1 7-6 7-6 in two hours and 36 minutes to set up a semi-final against Roger Federer or David Nalbandian.

Ferrero stormed through the opening set and served for the second at 5-4 before Arazi staged a fightback.

But the Moroccan wasted three set points before dropping successive tie-breaks and crashing out.

"I played really good when I started the match but I knew Arazi always plays good rallies," said Ferrero.

"I missed some easy volleys but then I won the second set in the tie-break. It was pretty tough.

He added: "I'm going to watch the Nalbandian-Federer match on television. I think they have lots of talent.

"Roger and Nalbandian always battle. Last year they played five sets. I think it's going to be a great match to watch."
