Too bad he didn't make it...
But still, on a positive note, a final on hard is already a big thing !
Besides... so far this year, he's always played against Ruben and lost to a Spaniard in final... Is he gonna reach the AO's final ??
What the players said :
"When I play against him, it's always tough. He is at a very good level and he is a very strong player
. In the first set he had more chances but in the second and third I played better," said Ferrer “I am very happy. It’s my first tournament on hard court. It’s unbelievable. I won over Tommy. He’s a Top 10 [player] and it’s important for me. Today, I played my best tennis of the week. Every point was at a good level.”
(Erm, I don't get why he's talking about a 3rd set...
Robredo believed there was nothing he could do about the way Ferrer was playing and how he ran down every ball in every rally.
“David was playing so good. I think playing with wind was better for him because he plays with two-hand backhand and me one, and he doesn’t miss much. He was just a little bit better today and he beat me
,” said Robredo.
