    Points won directly behind the serve:
    19 % Nadal – 17 of 86
    14 % Murray – 14 of 98

    It was their first meeting in three years. When they had faced each other previously in Tokyo ’11 (final), Murray won 3-6 6-2 6-0;
    in Rome, Nadal snapped a 12-game losing streak to Murray (Nadal was *0:5 in the 1st set). It drizzled throughout the quarterfinal. In the 3rd set Murray led *4:2 & 5:4 – Nadal managed to win 12 out of the last 13 points.
    Murray for the second time at Foro Italico lost 6-1 3-6 5-7 – (Juan Monaco, 2R in 2009)

    Nadal never before spent more than 8 hours on courts in his first three matches of an ATP tournament:
    2 Simon 7-6 6-7 6-2 (3:18 hrs)
    3 Youzhny 6-7 6-2 6-1 (2:44 hrs)
    Q Murray 1-6 6-3 7-5 (2:40 hrs)
    Once before he’d won all his three openers in three-setters (Rotterdam ’09):
    1 Bolelli 4-6 6-2 7-5 (2:26 hrs)
    2 Dimitrov 7-5 3-6 6-2 (2:26 hrs)
    Q Tsonga 6-4 6-7 6-4 (2:40 hrs)

    * Nadal made 25 Forehand errors, not 23 as it is written in the picture
