Ad Henman !!

And he breaks

The match is closer than 5-1 so far but Tim has won all the big points and Ferrer is struggling with his passes and the quality of Henman's approaches. He's hit a lot of passes long on big points. Tim is really causing Ferrer problems by coming in on as many serves as possible.

Henman 5-1 Ferrer
There are no prizes for guessing Henman's tactics here. Ferrer sends a second serve down and Henman slices a backhand deep and advances to the net. It takes him to 30-15 up but, for some reason, he changes tact suddenly and Ferrer's deep forehand twice forces an error. Back to plan A then and Henman takes three consecutive points, twice with volleys at the net, and the Briton is well in control.

Henman 6-1 Ferrer
Ferrer is frustrated. You can tell that because at the start of the game, he turns to his coach in the crowd and shouts "I'm trying but there's nothing I can do." Just call me Poirot. Anyway, that's clearly music to Henman's ears as the Briton seals the set to love with a combination of chip-charge, forehand winner and sliced backhand pass. Ferrer, obviously, can do nothing to prevent the first set slipping away.

Ferrer serving:

15-0

30-0

30-15

40-15

40-30

Deuce: Tim taking advantage of two 2nd serves and chip-charging. Right now, Ferrer is really struggling when he misses the 1st serve.

Ad Ferrer

Game

6-1, 0-1
