had trouble converting break points during his 2-6, 7-6(6), 6-1 victory over

10 Things That Have Happened Since the Last Time Ferrer Defeated Nadal on Clay
The play happens so fast you have to watch the slo-mo to realize the difficulty. Federer, he of the Baryshnikov footwork, sprints the length of the baseline and has the presence of mind to whip the wrist through to get the racquet up and over the ball, sending it down the line for a brisk winner.
