Ferrer is mentally broken! Yes, should be easily done now if Tim keeps focussing.

Ferrer decides now is the time to re-grip his racket. Henman decides now is the time to enter into a little more banter with the umpire. They really are getting along famously. Perhaps buoyed by his flourishing relationship with Bernardes, Henman produces some delightful shots - the best of which comes from a sliced drop-shot from the back of the court executed to perfection. And a fine pick-up volley helps him to hold to 30. Ferrer must now serve for the set.

Henman 6-1 2-5 Ferrer
Henman looks to be aggressive on Ferrer's serve again, attempting the chip-charge on a couple of occasions, but - unlike in the first set - the home favourite has found his range and he is nullifying the Briton's threat. Ferrer holds to 15 and even Henman's attempts to retrieve the ball for the ball-girl goes awry. When you're cold, you're cold it would seem.

Henman 6-1 2-4 Ferrer
What we need here is a trademark punch and "come on" from Britain's number two. We don't get one. Henman, helped by an excellent pick-up volley, takes a 30-0 lead, but Ferrer is bullying points increasingly and he bludgeons the Briton into submission in two rallies to draw level. Another double fault - symbolic of the fact that Henman is off his game at the moment - takes it to deuce, before Ferrer wastes a gift at break point when he finds the net off an easy backhand pass. That helps Henman and two first serves ensure he stays alive in this set.
