Ferrer flying under the radar...

I have watched a good chunk of the coverage of the Australian Open and read many responses on here, and I find it interesting that few talk about his chances of going deep here.

He has only dropped one set so far, although I suppose you could argue that his opponents have been ideal (Nieminen carrying an injury). Raonic up next could be tricky, but if we assume that he wins that then he is into the QF...to possibly face a sub-par Rafa. Considering his high-intensity game, I think it is possible that he could run Nadal into the ground, assuming that Cilic doesn't finish the job first.

Even if he plays Cilic in the QF he has a chance.

What are your views on his tournament so far, and his chances of going further?

Re: Ferrer flying under the radar...

He has a great chance to reach the semi-finals. Nadal is playing horribly and Ferrer is playing great.
I hope he beats Nadal and sets up a meeting with Murray. That would be a good match.

LET'S GO!!

Re: Ferrer flying under the radar...

I don´t think he has chance against Nadal. Yes Rafa isn´t playing his best but don´t forget he always step up to the next level of his game how the tournament is going- the same was at Wimbledon last yer. He was struggling with Petszchner or Haase 5 sets, and than in SF he beat 3:0 Murray and in final destroyed Berdych. So in QF against Ferrer he would play better and Ferrer like all Spaniards is affraid of Nadal- last time he beat him in 2007 WTF in Shanghai on hard, 2007 season was Ferrer best season and Rafa on hard in 2007 still wasn´t so good like today. In potential QF Nadal-Ferrer I will say 3:0 for Nadal without even tie-break. And match against Cilic we will see but Cilic would have more chances on best of 3- i just can´t imagine Cilic to take Nadal 3:0 or 3:1, and if they will go to 5th set- Rafa will be better, fitter, quicker... so Cilic must tike him in 4 sets and that seems to be almos impossible, but we will see what happened.

Yeah, Ferrer's going to be really tough for Rafito to get past.

Re: Ferrer flying under the radar...

He has no chance of getting to the Semis, Nadal will easily take care of him.

Re: Ferrer flying under the radar...

If by going deep you mean getting to the quarters then yes he has a fantastic chance of getting there. He isn't progressing beyond the quarters unless Cilic can pull the mother of all upsets by taking Nadal out next. Given the titanic struggle Cilic's just come through he hasn't a prayer against Nadal so that's a moot point. Ferrer last beat Nadal in 2007 and I think that is the way it will always stay.

Re: Ferrer flying under the radar...

I think he will be done when he faces a big wig. Sadly I think his chances are minimal of beating a top seed let alone beating 2.

Re: Ferrer flying under the radar...

The Master was too horrible for David. He can not beat Nadal unless the last has influenza.

Yes, he does.

Nadal is playing horrible, even more than usual.

You will see in the QFs.

Too bad we can't switch Ferrer with Murray in the draw.

QF: Murray
SF: Soderling

This would be a decent draw for Rafito.

He's flying so low under the radar he'll soon crash out of the tournament.
