David Ferrer outlasts Tomas Berdych, sends Davis Cup Final into the deciding rubber
In their last match of the year, it was David Ferrer who out-performed Tomas Berdych in straight sets to send the Davis Cup Final between Spain and Czech Republic into a deciding rubber.

With the Davis Cup title on the line, it was World No.5 David Ferrer who silenced the crowd by defeating local boy Tomas Berdych in straight sets 6-2, 6-3, 7-5 in just under 2 and a half hours to give the visitors (Spain) one final chance to successfully defend their Davis Cup title.

Ferrer took the first set in 45 minutes after playing some fantastic tennis. He broke the very first Berdych service game and followed it with some really impressive service holds and then broke the Czech again in the eighth game to take a 1 set to 0 lead in the fourth rubber. Ferrer was at his counter attacking best as he troubled Berdych from the back, who failed to find answers to the questions asked by Ferrer.

Ferrer is dominant once more, this time in the second set. Berdych was unable to make any form of impact yet once more, and continued to play some erratic tennis. That set was a little shorter than the first one as it lasted only 40 minutes, with that solitary break of serve that was enough for the Spaniard, who kept holding his served to maintain a safe distance from Berdych and then finally serving it out successfully.

The third set was the most entertaining as it saw three breaks of serves. Ferrer lead 3-1 in the third set only to see Berdych come back strongly and break back and later taking a 5-4 lead. Ferrer then got the decisive break in the all-important eleventh game to finally serve out the match and send this match into the deciding rubber.
