David Ferrer Interview - Australian Open Day 10

David Ferrer Interview - Australian Open Day 10

Andy Murray def David Ferrer 6-3 6-7(5) 6-2 6-3

Q. What are your thoughts on the match?
DAVID FERRER: It was a good match. It was a lot of rallies. It was tough.

In the third set, the first games, it was tough but it was close. He was better than me playing very aggressive with his backhand.

And in the fourth set when I broke him with 2-0 for 2-All, well, in the game 4-3 or 4-2 I didn't -- I lost a little bit the concentration. It was the key.

Rafa into ATP Finals semis

Rafa into ATP Finals semis

Rafael Nadal scored an enthralling 6-7 (2-7) 6-3 6-4 win over David Ferrer at the ATP World Tour Finals.

There was little riding on the outcome of Friday's encounter with Nadal guaranteed top spot in Group Ilie Nastase and Ferrer eliminated, but the two Spaniards are noted for their ferocious competiveness and put on an entertaining contest for an appreciative O2 Arena.

Ferrer's never-say-die attitude saw him rebound from 3-0 down in the first set, yet Nadal ultimately broke his compatriot's resolve with some scintillating tennis and he will now attempt to snap a three-match losing streak against world number one Djokovic in the semis.

Stan scores win in London

Stan scores win in London

Stan Wawrinka beat David Ferrer 7-5, 6-2 in round-robin action at The O2.

It was Ferrer who scored the first break of the match to go up 3-1. But with the Spaniard serving for the opening set at 5-3, an ill-timed double fault brought the match back on serve. Wawrinka grabbed another break at 5-all and went on to serve out the set.

The 30-year-old carried that momentum into the second set, service breaks in the first and fifth games leading him to victory, his career-best 54th of the season.

Andy Murray downs Ferrer at London ATP Tour Finals

Andy Murray downs Ferrer at London ATP Tour Finals

Andy Murray silenced the critics who claimed he was distracted by dreams of Davis Cup glory as the Scot opened his ATP Tour Finals campaign with a gritty 6-4, 6-4 win over David Ferrer on Monday.

Britain face Belgium in the final on clay in Ghent next week and Murray had initially suggested he might pull out of the Tour Finals to fine-tune his preparations for the Davis Cup.

After learning of potential sanctions from the ATP if he withdrew, Murray settled for spending most of last week practising his clay-court game across London at Queen's Club before arriving at the O2 on Friday.

It was hardly ideal preparation and inevitably Murray's commitment against Ferrer was under close scrutiny from cynics who doubted whether the world number two really wanted to risk injury with the Davis Cup just around the corner.

Nadal to face Djokovic in Monte Carlo semis

Nadal to face Djokovic in Monte Carlo semis

Rafael Nadal beat David Ferrer 6-4, 5-7, 6-2 to advance to the semifials in Monte Carlo where he will play Novak Djokovic.

Nadal leads their head-to-head 23-19 and defeated the Serb in the 2009 and 2012 finals in Monte-Carlo before Djokovic exacted revenge in the 2013 title match.

The Spaniard relinquished one of his breaks when leading 5-2 in the first set, but closed out the opener and looked to have control of the match when he went up an early double break 3-0 lead in the second set.

But Ferrer was going to make Nadal work for his victory. The Valencia native recouped one of the breaks in the fourth game, and then thwarted Nadal when he served for the match at 5-4, reeling off three straight games to stun the Mallorcan and level the match.

Five to follow at the French Open

Five to follow at the French Open

The clay-court season is now firmly up and running on the European circuit as attention and focus will naturally start to build towards the French Open at Roland Garros at the end of May.

Nine-time winner Rafael Nadal will be spearheading the charge to win the second Grand Slam of 2015, but there will be plenty of challengers determined to topple the undisputed King of Clay.

Betfair may have Nadal and Djokovic at 6/4 and 3/2 to win, respectively, when this article was created, but if they land in the same half of the draw, then there will be some value to be had in the other half.

Here, we take a look at five players, naturally including Nadal and Djokovic, who are going to be worth following at Roland Garros.


RAFAEL NADAL



With a mind-boggling 10th French Open title the target for Nadal, he remains the man to beat at Roland Garros, despite his various troubles since winning for a fifth successive year in 2014.
