Second-seeded David Ferrer was ousted from the Barcelona Open by a Russian opponent for the second straight year and defending champion Rafael Nadal labored to victory on Wednesday. Ferrer was unable to find his rhythm in losing 6-4, 6-2 to Teymuraz Gabashvili in his opening match while Nadal struggled past fellow Spanish player Albert Ramos 7-6 (2), 6-4. Nadal eventually overcame his 103rd-ranked opponent to reach the third round, rebounding from a surprise loss to Ferrer in the Monte Carlo Masters quarterfinals. ''After losing in the Monte Carlo I wanted to raise my game here,'' Nadal said.

Saying his right wrist is not as badly hurt as he feared, Novak Djokovic plans to be back on the tennis tour in two weeks - and at the French Open later next month. The right-handed Djokovic said in a statement Tuesday he's been ''assured'' by doctors that he will be ready for upcoming clay-court tournaments, starting with the Madrid Masters on May 5. ''Fortunately, the situation with the injury is better than it first seemed,'' said Djokovic, who is No. 2, behind Rafael Nadal, in the ATP rankings. He wore a thick white bandage on his wrist while losing 7-5, 6-2 to Roger Federer on Saturday in the semifinals at Monte Carlo.

Stanislas Wawrinka showed that his first Grand Slam title wasn't a fluke, upstaging his more illustrious countryman to add a maiden Masters trophy in Monte Carlo on Sunday. Wawrinka came from a set down to beat Roger Federer 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-2 in the Monte Carlo Masters final, another milestone in the late-blooming 29-year-old's career. Having beaten Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal en route to his Australian Open victory this year, Wawrinka showed again he can compete with the best by earning just his second career victory against Federer in the first all-Swiss ATP final in 14 years. That's what I am doing this year and I'm doing well.'' Djokovic, hampered by a sore right wrist, lost to Federer in the semifinals, while eight-time champion Nadal was beaten by David Ferrer in the quarters.
