It's the fact that no matter how **** poor they are playing, they just find that inner beast and pull it out. Most any player in any game or sport can have a bad day, lose, and chalk it up to a bad day and work on their weakness.

Nadal and Ferrer, along with the other 3? It can be 5-0 40-0 they are down and they just gain another gear. Ferrer played like out and out trash in the first set and most of the second, and he comes alive out of nowhere.

That, simply, is why they are all at the top.
was going to get on a stream when i saw it was a set apiece, got sidetracked a bit...and it was over!
