In the first of five exhibition matches planned for South America this month, Rafael Nadal played against compatriot David Ferrer at the Jockey Club in Lima, Peru. The exhibition was held on a clay court in front of an enthralled audience, and as promised, both players were out to not just put on a show, but also to play real tennis. Rafa won the match, 7-5, 6-4; however, that was the least important part of the match. The ordeal seemed like a ton of fun for the players and the spectators, and not nearly as tense as the final at Roland Garros, which was the last clay court match played between Rafa and David this year. Congratulations to both players!
