Re: Will Ferrer win a slam this year?
If Ferrer had the connections that Murray has, he would have won the USO last year. The only reason his match vs. Djokovic was suspended while the Murray matches vs. Djokovic and Berdych were not is because the ATP wanted a Djokovic vs. Murray final and Murray as champion. He's probably a better wind player than Murray and would have easily defeated the choking Murray from the final.
Does this mean Ferrer is a future slam champion? Probably not, it's more accurate to say neither he nor Murray should be anywhere near a slam. But you can't say Murray is a future slam champion and say there's "no chance" for Ferrer with a straight face.
