5th seed David Ferrer impressed many with his commanding three-set conquest of two-time champion, Andy Murray, in the third-round of the ATP Shanghai Masters in China on Wednesday. And the Spaniard could not refrain from the fact that he had to play his best game to get the better of his fancied counterpart! "I needed to play my best tennis today," ATPWorldTour.com quoted Ferrer as saying, who came back from a set down to pull off a comprehensive 2-6, 6-1, 6-2 win that not only helped him seal a quarterfinal berth, but also helped him to inch closer towards his the World Tour Finals in London.
"Of course it's my goal, and the goal of Andy (Murray). I think this match was very important for both players. Today was a good victory." Meanwhile, Murray was all praises for Ferrer. "He barely missed a ball for about a set and a half.
I couldn't find a way around him. He played just great tennis, especially the last set and a half. "[At] the beginning of the second set I still had a couple of opportunities there right at the beginning. But after that, I've got to give it to him, he played fantastically well and deserved to win."
