Match of the day on the Centre Court at the Rothenbaum Club.
Plenty of entertaining exchanges between the two.
Ferrer erratic for large stretches of the match, led 3-0 in sets 1 and 2, pegged back both times.
In the end he stabilised enough to grind Monaco into the dirt and get his first win over the Argentinian in 4 attempts on clay.

Pathetic from both. Monaco was the favorite on form.

Ferrer had no form, he was out injured.
Maybe helped him though, meant he was fresh, even if not very match sharp. Monaco was pretty tired by the end.

I saw the match in the stadium and it really was so much fun to watch :) I wanted neither of these 2 to loose, but I am happy in the end for David, he really deserved the win!!!
I also hope he will at least reach the final now :worship:
