David Ferrer says that his triumph over Nicolas Almagro at the Australian Open was "a miracle".

Fourth seed David Ferrer has hailed his dramatic fightback against Nicolas Almagro at the Australian Open as "a miracle".

Ferrer offered some comfort to his defeated countryman, telling him that he has also suffered from nerves in closing out matches in the past.

"It was a miracle," said Ferrer in his courtside interview.

"Nicolas had a lot of chances to win the match and I tried to fight every point That is my game.

"I know that players get nervous on the big points because that happens to me to."

Ferrer will now play the winner of Novak Djokovic and Tomas Berdych.
