Nadal beaten in Dubai
By:
thinkSPAIN , Thursday, March 6, 2008

Rafael Nadal is out of the Dubai Championship after a 6-7, 2-6 quarter final defeat against Andy Roddick.

It is the fourth time already this season that the world number two has been beaten following earlier defeats against Youznhi in the final of the Madras Open, against Tsonga in the semi-finals of the Australian Open and against Seppi in the second round of the Rotterdam Tournament.

Following Federer's first round exit, a win in Dubai would have narrowed the gap at the top of the ATP rankings to just 125 points.

In the earlier all-Spanish tie, Toledo's Feliciano López beat David Ferrer 6-4, 6-3 and next faces Russia's Nikolay Davydenko, who came through against Scotland's Andy Murray.

There will be at least one Spaniard in the semi-final of the Dubai Championship with David Ferrer and Feliciano López set to face each other in the quarters.

Rafael Nadal is also through after a comfortable 6-4, 6-0 win against Russia's Mijail Ledvoskikh though Fernando Verdasco fell victim to Scotland's Andy Murray (3-6, 6-3, 6-7), who beat top seed Roger Federer in the first round.

Alicante's David Ferrer was made to struggle in his second round match with Belgium's Olivier Rochus, but eventually came through 3-6, 7-5, 6-1 though his Toledan semi-final opponent had fewer problems against Germany's Tommy Haas (6-2, 7-5).

Rafael Nadal had to come back from a set behind to reach the second round of the Dubai championship, eventually beating German 12th seed Philipp Kohlschreiber 3-6, 6-1, 6-4 earlier today in a match lasting two hours, 22 minutes.

But he fared better than top seed and world number one Roger Federer, who was beaten by Scotland's Jamie Murray yesterday.

And the result augurs well for Spain, who face Germany in the quarter finals of the Davis Cup in Bremen on the 11-13th April, after two previous victories this week for Spanish players against German opposition - in their respective first round matches yesterday, Fernando Verdasco and David Ferrer chalked up victories against German pair Rainer Schuetler and Tommy Haas.

Nadal, who went out in the second round of his last competition - the Rotterdam Open - two weeks ago, next faces Russian qualifier Mijail Ledvoskikh, who beat local favourite Mahoud Nader 6-1, 6-1 to book his passage.
