It was relief all round for David Ferrer backers in the Australian Open quarter finals. The Spaniard beat fellow countryman Nicolas Almagro from two sets down 4-6, 4-6, 7-5, 7-6 (7-4), 6-2. He must now win world number one Novak Djokovic if he is keep his Australian Open dreams alive.
Any hopes that Djokovic may be tired after his marathon match against Stanislas Wawrinka were dashed as the Serb breezed past his quarter final clash against Tomas Berdych with no real problems.
Both players have had to dig deep at some stage in this tournament and although Djokovic will almost certainly be the one to prevail Ferrer is unlikely to go quietly, I could be tempted to suggest he may manage to snatch a set before he makes his way home.
