RAFAEL NADAL v DAVID FERRER

6-4, 6-3

 

Nadal ran up a 4-0 lead against Ferrer in the first set in just 20 minutes.
Only when he came to serve for a one-set lead did Nadal show any nerves but, having been broken at 5-2, he made no mistake when serving for it a second time at 5-4.
An early break of the Ferrer serve put Nadal in the driving seat in the second set and with the teenager's penetrating groundstrokes firing, Ferrer could do little to stop his compatriot's march into the final.
Nadal, instrumental in Spain's home Davis Cup triumph over the U.S. in Seville last December, will face Federer in the biggest ATP match of his career.
