Ferrer playing well at the French Open
Spain’s Tommy Robredo today became the first player since 1927 to come back from two sets down in three consecutive Grand Slam matches.
The 31-year-old reached the quarter-finals of the French Open by beating fellow countryman Nicolas Almagro, ranked 23 places higher, 6-7, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4, 6-4.
