It's been a wild week in Romania as the tournament field has been turned upside down. Defending champion Jurgen Melzer, who was seeded fourth, was upset in the first round by Andreas Seppi. Of the tournament's eight seeded players, only one -- #6 Giles Simon -- has stayed alive to the final four. Gael Monfils became the first qualifier to reach the semis of the tournament since 2000. He started the event with a win over #2 seed Filippo Volandri.
