Thirty matches played since the beginning of the 2011 season. Thirty matches won in that period of time. 30. Go get them, Nole.
David Ferrer was the 6th player to take a set off Novak in 2011 - joining Ivan Dodig (AO), Feliciano Lopez (Dubai), Tomas Berdych (Dubai), Roger Federer (IW) and Rafael Nadal (IW, Miami).
Ferrer played some really good tennis today, with beautiful points at the net, and overall impressive shot-making. The most fantastic point of the evening was this:
Nole played a great first set, but after being 2-0 up in the second set, he started making too many errors, and missing good opportunities. In the last set, after a few tough games, he raised his level once again, and kept it up until the end, winning 6-4 4-6 6-3.
