Juan Carlos Ferrero becomes only the third player...

To take a set outright (no TB'er involved) from Federer at Wimbledon since his reign began in 2003.

Fish--2003
Roddick-2004

Federer had played 57 consecutive sets without losing one outright. He had won at leat 6 games in every one of those sets. Ferrero served really well in the 2nd.

Vamos Mosquito.

I can't believe I'm watching the same player who dropped the first two sets against Hajek and was totally sucking it up. Now he's on Centre Court on the second Friday at Wimbledon, 1 set all vs. Fed?

Djokovic // Del Potro // Paire // Thiem // M. Zverev // Youzhny
Coric // Khachanov // Donaldson // A. Zverev // Bublik
Ferrero // Rafter

Federer isn't that far ahead of the field where he will never lose a set outright on grass. His record is still insanely good.

Juan Carlos v Roger



Just ONE set, please.

He's going to lose a set but I hope he gets it together. He seems pretty rusty.

I am starting to belive the grass is seriously fcked up this wimbledon. Ferrero is succesfully grinding on grass, it is absolutely insane to watch this.

Re: Juan Carlos Ferrero becomes only the third player...

JCF also the first player in a long time to get to break point on two different serve games of Fed's in the 1st set. I think Kiefer may have done that in 2005 but I'm not quite sure. Roddick is for sure the last player to do it in 2004 since he broke Roger twice in the 2nd set.

It's just an interesting stat. It's not like anyone's panicking.
I'm glad that Ferrero's putting up a fight and not going down in straights.

That second set brainfart now appears to have been Rogi's Wake-Up call...
