Nadal though, Ferrer ousted in Rio
World No. 1 Rafael Nadal was taken to the limit by fellow Spaniard Pablo Andujar before winning an extended third-set tiebreaker to advance to the final of the Rio Open.
Andujar, ranked 40th in the world, battled Nadal tooth-and-nail for two hours and 46 minutes before the 13-time Grand Slam champion prevailed in a 2-6, 6-3, 7-6 (12-10) thriller.
Second-seeded David Ferrer wasn’t able to hold off an upset bid in the other semi, as Ukrainian Alexandr Dolgopolov easily handled the World No. 4 in a 6-4, 6-4 verdict that halted Ferrer’s eight-match winning streak.
