The 28-year-old Wawrinka will face Rafael Nadal at the semifinal. Nadal was bothered by blisters on his left hand during his win over Grigor Dimitrov, the 22-year-old Bulgarian who took the first set off him in their quarterfinal and also had set points in the third, according to report.
Rafael Nadal had the hand heavily taped during the match, and admitted it affected his serve. He practiced on Thursday without all the tape, avoiding a lot of attention while the women’s semifinals were on.
