Madrid R3: Ferrer def. Almagro 7-6(5) 3-6 7-6 (8)

El Cabezon is now Ferrer's turkey. Ferrer is the Road Runner and Almagro is the Coyote.

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".

Madrid, 3rd round:Ferrer (5) d. Almagro 76 (5) 36 76 (8)

NO! 3 matchpoints for Almagro!
Can you believe it!

Very good match, best match of this good day of tennis.

First set: A lot of breaks but a good tiebreaker, although Almagro was up 5-3.
In the second set Almagro played great tennis, some wonderful aggressive shots (both on backhand and forehand.)
Third set was all about "holding serve".
Both played fantastic when the other player had breakpoint. Almagro had 6 breakpoints,
Ferrer played great on nearly all of them.
Ferrer had two and Almagro was very good to hold serve as well.

All in all, the momentum after the 2nd set was on Almagro's side, but he was just not able to break!

3rd set tiebreak: Good level of play.
One error from Ferrer to 3-1 for Almagro.
Ferrer with a brillant return winner to 3-4.
Almagro with a brillant backhand dtl to 5-3.
Another great return from Ferrer to 5-5.
Brillant passing shot from Almagro to 76.
Second match point. Now on his own serve.
But Ferrer plays aggressive for 7-7.
At 7-7, Almagro hits a 2nd serve on the line for a service winner to 8-7. Third match point.
Long rallie and a error from Almagro to 8-8.
Then good serve from Ferrer for 9-8. First matchpoint for Ferrer.
Winner for 10-8! Forehand winner.

13 aces from both. Very good.

David you monster. Clutch play. What a return at 3-5* in the breaker for example. Insane.

From what I saw of it, this was a VERY high quality match.

Almagro is also dying to beat Ferrer (0-9) but no 2nd breakthrough today!
Way to go, David!

Great match, fast clay is good for tennis.
