Rafael Nadal was once again merciless against one of his closest friends. He only gave Juan Monaco 2 games in the fourth round, so I guess he was slightly more generous on Friday when he allowed world No6 David Ferrer five games in their semi-final.
Ferrer, who had dropped eight games of less in each of his first four rounds in Paris. Ferrer, who took out Andy Murray quite routinely in four sets. That Ferrer fell 2-6, 2-6, 1-6 to Nadal, who is on the brink of winning an unprecedented seventh French Open crown.
The point above is just one of many that stood out today. One second he was on the ground hitting a shot like that, a few moments later, he was flying in the air hitting a backhand smash with his back to the net.
The title is his to take and anyone who thinks otherwise needs a reality check I believe. God bless him!
