Ferrer defeats Nadal Abu Dhabi SF 6-3 6-2

Nadal looks slow and tired while Ferrer was firing all night almost choking the first set .........

Re: Ferrer defeats Nadal Abu Dhabi SF 6-3 6-2

David is so focused in every tennis match he plays This is why I love the dude. Iron man

Epic tank from Rafa though. Nice gesture towards his compatriot. Its a win-win situation anyway. He avoids Djokovic, gets to play Federer rather (his only chance of playing himself into form in an exho really) and the organisers get the matchup they wanted anyway

I thought today was a smart match from Federer. Nadal outsmarted him though

Bravo, Ferru! too bad we won't see Novak beating Nadal again. God knows what the Nadal/Fed match will look like; neither looked sharp today.

Its Roger and its an exho!
I think if both go at it semi-seriously, Nadal will win. Rafa today was enough to beat Roger today

I hope both guys trat it as a practice match, not trying to blast the other guy off court. Nothing is on the line anyway afterall. I want a three setter

Re: Ferrer defeats Nadal Abu Dhabi SF 6-3 6-2

Looks like I am always right. Nadal wasn't injured at the end of last year and because of that he was rapped over and over again . Look now. The first healthy match against a decent opponent and he gets *****, humiliated and left on court crying. Enough said.

Happy 2012, guys!

Re: Ferrer defeats Nadal Abu Dhabi SF 6-3 6-2

even in Exho Ferrer doesnt know the meaning of not giving 100% lol

Rafa's passion for tennis is still diminished

Now where's that foxy lady from Shady Lane?

Re: Ferrer defeats Nadal Abu Dhabi SF 6-3 6-2

Can't believe you guys are thinking that was a tank from Nadal. Ferrer just played better than him, that's all. And it would be better tank in a GS, like WB or USO to avoid Djokovic than tank in an Exho, no?
