I think he served first, so I'm not sure he was up a break. It's 4-3 now, but a big tussle for control in that last game where Ferrero had at least a couple of bp.

Back on serve in the 2nd. Safin seems to be holding it together...Fererro is having a tough day at the office.

Ferrero is up a break in the second set, 5-3. Yay Marat threw a racquet already! :) Fun fun fun.

Ferrero wins the 2nd set 6-4. Safin is now down 15-30 on his own serve going into the 3rd set.

UPDATE: Ferrero breaks Safin's serve in the 3rd game of the 3rd set. I don't want to say it, but I think this match is over.

YES beating Safin should give Ferrero lots of confidence.. after all who else has been Safin this year but the whole ATP tour and an 18 yr old kid by name of Almagro that lost his 1st round here too..

That doesn't make a lot of sense, but from what I get out of it, Ferrero's confidence will be high - 2nd WIN over SAFIN this year!!!!

Safin is a lumphead as tennis-x.com called him once and they are right..

He is playing like a mediocre top 60 player since AO. They should make him play quallies the way Ferrero does, maybe then he will appreciate the game of tennis a little more.

I don't really consider Ferrero dominantly a power player or a defensive player. He is a very nice mix of both. He has the quickness of a great clay courter but also has a killer forehand.
