And I don't think Ferrero was unjustified there... Sure, in hindsight, it's easy to defend Nadal. But at the time, his coach had decided to put in a youth over him, a clay court major champion and proven DC hero, in a DC final. To each their own, though.
Actually it was all about Blake trying to change the rules to suit him and since he was the vice president behind Ljubo as an elected player rep, that's not something that should be done.

Ferrero was unjustified there of course he was. You play within a team and the coach says someone is playing instead of you don't have a hissy fit. As for hindsight I said it was right then or do you need forensic.

Draw for the DC Final: Nadal Gets the Nod

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
