David Ferrer of Spain acknowledges applause after defeating Rafael Nadal of Spain during their quarterfinals match of the Monte Carlo Tennis Masters tournament in Monaco, Friday, April 18, 2014.
"Rafael is difficult to beat on a clay court, but not only on clay court, on all the surfaces," Ferrer said. "He's not a machine, no? Sometimes he can play not so good. Maybe today he doesn't play his best tennis, and I played very good."
