Nadal beats Ferrer in first Tennis Tournament of 2016

Rafael Nadal sealed his place in the final at the Mubadala World Tennis Championship with a 6-3, 6-7(4), 6-3 win over David Ferrer, after two hours and 23 minutes out of court.
Despite it being an exhibition tournament aimed at preparing for the ATP Tour, Nadal and Ferrer both brought their A game and left it all out on the court as if they were actually playing for a title.
Nadal, who, since the last Asian tour has been working on his footwork in order to improve how he strikes the ball, was on much better form than at the beginning of 2015 when he first lost to Andy Murray in Abu Dhabi and then Michael Berrer in Doha.
