That is correct, as far as the original version is concerned.
However, my question was refering to two things:
1) the fact that, during the match Ferrer was painting the lines. The entire match, starting from game 1 till the end.
2) even at the end of the match Nadal was able to play pretty spectacular points. Watch the point at 4-1 30-30 in the third. If you think, that such play is possible with the quoted injury, then you probably as well believe, that capricorns exist.
Mind you, Nadal was playing against a top 5 player, and not some mug.
