Choking aside, Ferrer had a lot of success at the end of that set because Nico was hitting the ball too much down the center of the court. As a result, Ferrer was able to find better angles off his crosscourt forehand, and unlike the better movers on tour, Almagro was unable to get back into position when he was pushed that far out of court. That pattern happened like four or five times at the end of the set.

And of course Nico gets and immediately cedes the break in the fourth.
