Can Ferrer squeeze out a win against Federer tomorrow?

A tall order for David. Can he do the impossible?

It's not impossible. He will get his chances but I expect Fed to win in straights nevertheless.

Re: Can Ferrer squeeze out a win against Federer tomorrow?

I wouldn't exactly call it 'impossible'... if Ferrer gives it his all, he might surely have a chance.
Much, if not all, will depend on the quality of Fed's first serve - if it's on, Ferrer will stand no choice, if it's not, he might be able to pull another Tsonga.

exactly. as obvious as it sounds, if fed plays well then ferrer has no chances but if he doesn't give his best (as seems to be the case in the past two years) then ferrer certainly has a strong chance to beat him. it feels rather weird how everyone seem to write down Federer's opponents in MS considering that the guy has only won 1 MS in the past two seasons.

Just don't think Ferrer has the weaponry to do any real damage. He will work his ass off, but it won't be enough.

I think his serve is too weak. He has the game to break Fed once or twice, but I don't expect him to hold serve to the extent that he can win this match.

Re: Can Ferrer squeeze out a win against Federer tomorrow?

He should retire after one game. Give same favor to Fed as to Nadal.

I'm all for Equal Opportunities when it comes to giving favours to Feds & Nads. Hope Ferrer remembers that.
