David Taught Ferrero a Lesson at Indian Wells
“King” David taught Juan Carlos Ferrero a real lesson on practical and conclusive tennis, beating him 6-2 and 6-2 in the fourth round of the Indian Wells Masters Series. Nalbandian got even for his defeat by this rival during the last Australian Open, and besides broke into the top 8 players of the tournament. His dominance was overwhelming, with his serves as much as with his returns, to such an extent that Ferrero had only one chance of breaking all throughout the match. It was a great victory for the man from Cordoba, because of his performance, his outstanding level, time (only one hour, 13 minutes, which allows him to quickly recover his energy) and projection. His next opponent will depend on the results of the match between the Australian Lleyton Hewitt and the American Mardy Fish. He can beat either of the two if he keeps the level up that he showed against Ferrero, even if he has a negative record. He is 1-3 with the Australian; but he won the last match they played in 2005 in the Davis Cup. David lost to Fish, a great server, in the only match they ever played, but this was back in 2003.
