It seems David improved his first serve:
he has executed 8 aces (against 1 of Pella),

in R1 David made 11 aces..., it is good result for him :)

David Nalbandian edged two-time defending champion Nicolas Almagro 7-6(5), 3-6, 7-6(3) to book his
place in the semi-finals. Nalbandian withstood 28 aces from the second-seeded Spaniard to prevail
in two hours and 17 minutes. The former World No. 3 improved to 4-2 against Almagro in their
FedEx ATP Head2Head series.

Washington. Nalbandian has captured 11 trophies, with four coming on clay. He faces Simone
Bolelli next.

In the final, Nadal will face former World No. 3 David Nalbandian, who advanced to his
24th tour-level final as he defeated Italy’s Simone Bolelli 6-3, 7-5. After losing his
first two meetings with Nalbandian, Nadal has won their past four contests, winning
most recently in the BNP Paribas Open quarter-finals last year in Indian Wells.

Nalbandian hit 11 aces and countered losing serve three times by converting all five
of his break point chances to clinch victory against Bolelli in 85 minutes. The No.
80-ranked Bolelli, who upset third seed Juan Monaco in the second round, was contesting
his first ATP World Tour semi-final since 2008.

The 31-year-old Nalbandian has an 11-12 finals record and is through to the title match
of a clay-court event for the first time in five years, since finishing runner-up at the
Abierto Mexicano Telcel in Acapulco (l. to Almagro).

David (16.02.2013): "Tomorrow it will be a hard match...I have to be aware that to win I have to play well," he said.

Nadal doesn't believe he is the favourite."The conditions are much more favourable for David," said the Spaniard, who added he was pleased about being able to reach two consecutive ATP World Tour finals after eight months away from the sport he loves.
