MOKPO, South Korea (AP) — The investigation into South Korea's ferry disaster focused on the sharp turn it took just before it began listing and on the possibility that a quicker evacuation order by the captain could have saved lives, officials said Friday, as rescuers struggled to find some 270 people still missing and feared dead.
Monte Carlo (Monaco) (AFP) - David Ferrer defeated fellow Spaniard and world number one Rafael Nadal 7-6 (7/1), 6-4 in a hotly disputed quarter-final at the Monte Carlo Masters on Friday. Ferrer, 32, who reached a career-high world number three ranking last year, outlasted his rival and good friend in a marathon 75-minute first set to seize the advantage. He then broke Nadal's serve twice to lead 5-2 before a lapse in concentration allowed the Mallorcan left-hander to claw his way back into the set. However, on his second attempt to serve out for the match, Ferrer used a series of powerful baseline shots to keep Nadal pinned to the back of the court and closed out the victory on his first match point.
