- - So Wawrinka has done all he can do, keeping his hopes alive of reaching the semi-finals with that win. But now he has to wait. It all comes down to whether Berdych can find a way past Nadal tonight.
- - WAWRINKA 6-7(3) 6-4 6-1 - GAME, SET & MATCH! Back-to-back double faults from Ferrer and then, two points later, a backhand volley into the net and Wawrinka has a match point... He only needs the one, thumping another backhand return down the line to secure the win.
- - WAWRINKA 6-7(3) 6-4 5-1 - Wawrinka makes a nervy start to the game as he drops the first point with a serve out wide that doesn't have enough to take it away from Ferrer. But the Swiss world number eight bounces back in impressive fashion, eventually sealing the game to 30 with a much better serve. Ferrer will have to serve to stay in the match next.
- - WAWRINKA 4-1 - BREAK! Wawrinka earns himself a break point to go a double break up in this and sure enough he does get himself the cushion. The Swiss player unleashes his favourite single-handed backhand return of serve down the line, Ferrer stumbling slightly as he looked to recover from the service motion. But there's no way he would have got there anyway. Wawrinka is the double break up.
- - WAWRINKA 6-7(3) 6-4 3-1 - Another booming serve from Wawrinka, an unreturnable serve, to seal a comfortable service hold once again. As long as he is only one break down though, Ferrer is still in this match.
- - WAWRINKA 6-7(3) 6-4 2-1 - Sensational effort from Ferrer to chase down a drop shot but he can't quite get there in time. Still, that is the only point he drops during the game and he is off the mark in this final set and just the one break down.
- - WAWRINKA 6-7(3) 6-4 2-0 - Wawrinka races another service game to consolidate the break. Ferrer's head is beginning to drop now, as much as it ever does with him, and Wawrinka is on his way to the win.
- - WAWRINKA 6-7(3) 6-4 1-0 - BREAK! A thumping forehand winner down the line followed by a double fault from Ferrer sees Wawrinka sneak ahead. Ferrer levels at 30-all but then puts a forehand well long and it's break point Wawrinka again. The Spaniard pulls across his body on a forehand approach shot, sending the ball wide to concede the break.
- - WAWRINKA 6-7(3) 6-4 - SET! A shout of "come on" from Wawrinka after taking the first two points with big serves. He's mindful of that first set slump, clearly. Ferrer chips his return back on the third though, racing up to the net to put away the easy follow-up volley before a forehand approach shot down the line draws a forehand into the net from Wawrinka. 30-30. A heavy body serve brings up set point for Wawrinka and sure enough he levels after a forehand error from Ferrer.
- - WAWRINKA 6-7(3) 5-4 - Ferrer races across the net and guides a forehand volley back across court on the angle for a winner before a forehand long from Wawrinka and a netted return helps Ferrer hold to put the pressure on the Swiss player. Wawrinka will serve for the set just as he did in the first set. Can he hold this time to take it?
- - WAWRINKA 6-7(3) 5-3 - Wawrinka holds on to his serve pretty comfortably again with a move up the court and a forehand winner. Ferrer will have to serve to stay in this second set now.
- - WAWRINKA 6-7(3) 4-3 - Ferrer slices a backhand drop shot attempt into the net but he was leading 40-15 and it is a simple move up to the net and a shoulder forehand volley down the line to seal his third game of the set.
- - WAWRINKA 6-7(3) 4-2 - Wawrinka holds from 30-all, bombing a 119mph unreturnable serve right down the T to move to two games away from levelling up this match.
- - WAWRINKA 6-7(3) 3-2 - Much better from Ferrer on serve as he holds for the loss of just the one point when Wawrinka pulls a forehand well wide across court.
- - WAWRINKA 6-7(3) 3-1 - Wawrinka races through a comfortable service hold to consolidate the break and get himself right back in this match. He was a break up in the first set though remember, 5-2 in fact, and still managed to let Ferrer back in.
- - WAWRINKA 6-7(3) 2-1 - BREAK! Ferrer is furious with himself as he puts a forehand long to hand Wawrinka a break point. The Spaniard is then left smashing his racquet on the ground when he nets a forehand on the very next point to concede the serve.
- - WAWRINKA 6-7(3) 1-1 - Wawrinka goes long with a forehand to gift Ferrer yet another break point. He levels at deuce with an ace out wide but he nets another forehand and Ferrer has another chance. But another ace from the Swiss player followed by an stunning one-handed backhand winner down the line and he has the hold.
- - WAWRINKA 6-7(3) 0-1 - Ferrer absolutely races through a love service hold to start this second set. He appears to have played himself into some energy, stunning considering this is his seventh straight week of tournament play.
- - WAWRINKA 6-7(3) - SET! Again it is phenomenal defence from Ferrer that keeps him in the point as he tracks outside the tramlines to run down a ball and puts a cross court forehand right on to the sidelines. Wawrinka puts his forehand response long down the line and Ferrer has the first set.
- - WAWRINKA 6-6 (3-6) - TIE-BREAK! Wawrinka, who has lost all three of his previous tie-breaks in London this week, sends an off-forehand wide across court to hand Ferrer three set points...
- - WAWRINKA 6-6 (2-4) - TIE-BREAK! A much better forehand from Wawrinka combined with a shocking smash miss from Ferrer, fired straight into the tramlines, allows the Swiss back into the tie-break at the change of ends, albeit still a mini-break down.
- - WAWRINKA 6-6 (0-4) - TIE-BREAK! An absolutely sensational point from Ferrer, who has suddenly found a new lease of energy. The Spaniard tracks back for the lob, playing a tricky defensive lob back before a stunning backhand down the line and a cross court forehand draw the netted backhand from Wawrinka.
- - WAWRINKA 6-6 - Wawrinka immediately sets up three more break back points when Ferrer nets a forehand. And sure enough the Swiss player does break back straight away, forcing the breaker with a solid enough forehand down the centre of the T that Ferrer pulls wide on his forehand reply.
- - WAWRINKA 5-6 - BREAK! Wawrinka is furious with himself as his squanders a game point before then putting a forehand out after a nasty let cord. And it's break point Ferrer again. The Swiss player saves it with a big one-two combination of a first serve and a forehand drive down the middle of the court off the short return. A wild cross court forehand goes wide from Wawrinka to gift Ferrer a second break point. But the Spaniard doesn't get it until his fourth attempt, Wawrinka netting a forehand.
- - WAWRINKA 5-5 - A great challenge from Ferrer on what looked to be a winner down the line from Wawrinka. But the Spaniard is correct, gets the call overturned and has three game points. A forehand winner from Wawrinka followed by a forehand error from Ferrer and suddenly the Swiss is back in it. But a 117mph serve from Ferrer right onto the service line is returned poorly by Wawrinka and we're all square once again.
- - WAWRINKA 5-4 - BREAK! A nervy game from Wawrinka as Ferrer produces a sensational passing shot winner before a forehand error from the Swiss and a backhand into the top of the net. Ferrer has two break back points. A double fault from Wawrinka and the opportunity to close out the set on his serve is gone. We're back on serve in this opening set, albeit with Ferrer having to serve to stay in it for a second time after the change of ends.
- - WAWRINKA 5-3 - Another sweetly struck backhand drop shot comfortably outpaces the exhausted Ferrer before a booming forehand down the line sees Wawrinka level up at deuce in what had looked like a comfortable service game for the Spaniard. But a mis-hit backhand long from Wawrinka followed by a forehand into the net helps Ferrer hold on. The Swiss player will serve for this opening set though.
- - WAWRINKA 5-2 - Wawrinka really is starting to find his rhythm on the serve now as he booms down two massive first serves for the first two points of the game. He goes long with a forehand to gift Ferrer a point back but a sublime, sliced backhand drop shot brings up two game points, the Swiss taking advantage of the second with another bomb of a first serve down the T. Ferrer will have to serve to stay in the first set after the change of ends.
- - WAWRINKA 4-2 - BREAK! Ferrer, playing high percentage tennis, gets himself to 30-0 before suddenly a couple of errors combined with a forehand winner from Wawrinka earn the Swiss player a break point. Wawrinka goes for the running forehand down the centre of the court though and sends the ball long to squander it. A backhand up the line sets up break point number two and this time he does get it with an awesomely angled cross court backhand that Ferrer returns long.
- - WAWRINKA 3-2 - Another service hold for Wawrinka, this time to 15, as Ferrer goes for the change-of-direction forehand down the line only to put the ball in the middle of the net.
- - WAWRINKA 2-2 - The only dropped point from Ferrer during another hold is a forehand just long of the baseline. That was just the Spaniard's second unforced error so far this afternoon. Wawrinka, on the other hand, already has seven - the most recently being a backhand long to concede the game.
- - WAWRINKA 2-1 - Wawrinka looks to be cruising towards a service hold to 15 only to hit a wild forehand. But he quickly makes amends to hold at the second attempt with an ace out wide.
- - WAWRINKA 1-1 - A comfortable start for Ferrer, who is playing in his seventh straight week this week. The Spaniard holds for the loss of just the one point as Wawrinka fails to land three service returns.
- - WAWRINKA 1-0 - A great return of serve from Ferrer to set up the first point of the game in his favour. But Wawrinka doesn't panic and produces a kicking serve out wide to hold without too much drama, the Spaniard putting his return into the net.
14:27 - Here we go then, the players are just about ready. Wawrinka to start.
14:17 - Wawrinka wins the toss after Ferrer calls heads and the coin falls on tails. Wawrinka opts to serve first.
14:15 - Just a little delayed to the long-running doubles match before them, the players are finally making their way out on to court - Wawrinka first followed by Ferrer.
14:07 - Ferrer and Wawrinka have met each other on 11 previous occasions with the Spaniard leading the head-to-heads by a fairly comfortable seven wins to four. Two of Wawrinka's wins came back in 2006 but he did win their most recent clash - in Portugal earlier this year. Ferrer also has a win to his name this year - in Buenos Aires.
14:01 - Ferrer cannot qualify, having lost both of his clashes in straight sets. If Wawrinka wins, however, he will be in a good position to you through as you would expect Nadal to come past Berdych later on. To be on the safe side, though, Wawrinka could also do with winning in straight sets as if Berdych does win, he currently has more sets won (and less lost) that Wawrinka does, meaning he would go through instead. Confused yet??
13:58 - There is everything still to play for in Group A. Rafa Nadal is definitely through with two wins from two. And Ferrer looks on the brink of exit with two losses from two. But with Berdych due to face Nadal tonight, it could very well be that two players end up with two losses and a win to their name. Then it will come down to sets won and lost to decided who joins Nadal in the semi-finals.
13:56 - Hello and welcome to LIVE coverage of this final round Group A match between David Ferrer and Stanislas Wawrinka.
