Valencia F: Ferrer def. Granollers 7-5 6-3

First was long and tight but Ferrer really wanted it. And he won it. Congrats to him. Welcome to the London!

First set was really good - some sublime volleys by Granollers too. Ferrer deservedly won though and I hope he can keep up this form in London.

Well, we had the #2 and 3 in Basel and gave us a stinker

And we had two of the much booed, insulted, underestimated, clay-court specialists "always bending to Nadal" Spaniards in Valencia who gave us a really nice match
Ferru's focus was top notch and some of Marcel volleys were just

Congrats, David and Marcel

Marcel played well and showed that he deserved credit for his semifinal win over Simon.

I only saw the first set, but it was really entertaining stuff. Great volleys by granny and equally awesome passing shots by pics. Congrats Ferrer

MUST GET HAWKEYE NEXT YEAR!

Superb tennis in the first set, really refreshing to see those contrasting styles. Very good execution from both sides too.

Second set a bit lower quality-wise as expected, but overall this match well exceeded expectations...

and yes, get Hawkeye for next year FFS.

Very tough task to win a tournament as a "lucky loser" Anyway it's weird we had LL finalists week after week.

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career

Congrats Ferru!!
He looked really happy to win the home tournament which he partly owns and to almost make London.
Granollers played well too. No surprise he tore down the draw this week.

Also it was soooooooooooooo nice to see Juan Carlos as the trophey presenter for Ferru. Pity he couldn't play his tournament this year. Really hope he will be 100% injury free next season!

JUAN CARLOS FERRERO FOREVER!!

Also supporting Rafael Nadal, Kei Nishikori, Lleyton Hewitt
David Ferrer, Andy Murray, Juan Martin Del Potro, Nikolay Davydenko, David Nalbandian
Goran Ivanisevic and Marat Safin
