Rome R2:  Ferrer def. Verdasco 6-3 7-6(3)
Too tough from David. Too consistent, too efficient and effectively offensively with his forehand, good serving after a poor start on serve. Nando's serve just isn't enough of a weapon in this match-up and allows David to get into too many points, and the long rallies obviously favor Ferrer. Nando played better in the second set, with more controlled aggression and tried flattening his backhand out more, with some decent success, but he was never looking like winning the second set and played poorly in the tiebreak.
All in all, a nice win for David, played a pretty sharply after falling behind early breaks to start both sets.
