FERRER 4-6 5-5 ALBOT. Another semi-nightmare for Ferrer. After squandering a 4-2 lead in the first set, the Spaniard held a break through the entire second set until it was time to serve the set out. Forehand errors and general passive play continue to be his downfall in these tight moments, and they’re costing him dearly.
FERRER 4-6 ALBOT. SET! From 4-2, Ferrer loses 4 games in a row to fall down a set against the not-so-known Albot. It may be the lack of matches, and it may be the clearly brutal elbow injury, but what is clear is that the typically strong Ferrer forehand is flying all over the place.
FERRER 4-2 ALBOT. David Ferrer may have been injured since Wimbledon and he may well be wearing a huge, thick elbow cast that covers over half his arm, but the famously combative Spaniard is also winning. Much of the typical consistency from the 7th seed, and he’s well on his way early on.
