Re: Auckland Final: Pics Ferrer def.Olivier Rochus 6-3, 6-4

it's so sad watching Rochus play because it's so clear how great he would have been if taller...

I mean a 6 foot tall Oliver Rochus would be a great champion, it's really too bad. all the talent but the height holds him back.

Ferrer is looking in devastating form, even better than at last year's Auckland and also appears to be moving fantastically. I already was expecting him to go deep in Australia but maybe more eyes will be on him after his great form in winning Auckland for the third time!!

best of luck Oliver, and David: you can beat any player in the world!! show that at the Open in the next weeks!!!

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Rafael Nadal

Great week for David, I hope he can have great AO and give Novak some trouble

The choking didn't help either. Still would've been consistent top 20 (and have caused one of the biggest upsets ever and a few other pretty big ones) if he could close out a match

Ironically his height probably has something to do with it. It is just so much easier to serve out a match when you can hit big serves, which is not common when you're 5'4".
