Nicolas Almagro just didn't show up in the final at the Skitsar Swedish Open on Sunday, while his compatriot David Ferrer looked in fantastic form. He was hungry from the word go and was tenacious as ever as he overcame a slightly subdued Nicolas Almagro in straight sets with a scoreline of 6-2,6-2.
The first set started off on even terms, but quickly turned towards Ferrer's side. After holding serve in his first two service games quite comfortably too, Almagro slipped up and allowed Ferrer to break. Leading at 4-2 now, Ferrer put his foot on the gas and held serve to make the score 5-2. In the eighth game, Almagro now serving to stay in the set failed to do just that as Ferrer capitalized on some mistakes by Almagro. Ferrer had a high first serve percentage of 72 in the set, compared to just a 48 for Almagro. Ferrer won 29 out of the 50 points in the set.
The trend continued in the second set with Ferrer pushing hard, while Almagro was far from his best. He was broken early in the set as Ferrer took a 3-0 lead. Almagro then managed to hold serve in his next two service games and took the set to a 4-2 position. But Ferrer never budged, his serve was immaculate and he was never broken in the match, and won 47 out of the 77 points in the match.
