Nah that title belongs to Ferrer.

On topic, great tennis from Stan until he had to serve it out. He can give Nadal some trouble if he plays like today.

Ferrer is a finalist at Monte Carlo and Rome, winner of clay-court rubbers in the Davis Cup finals, I consider him as an elite player.

Clown. Ferrer has been in the top 10 for years and has had a great career.

Mark_Lenders seems to be viscous Ferru hater. Apart from that, he's an excellent poster.

19% second serve points won is pretty dismal.

I think it was US Open 2010 or maybe IW/Miami 2011. Definitely in the US.

When Stan has hit shit together, his clay court game is right there near the top.

Re: Monte Carlo R3: Wawrinka def. [8] Almagro 6-3 6-3

good match, not great but good

Wawrinka can play even better

on clay he's been one of the best players since 2008, the best after the top-4, Ferrer, Söderling, Del Potro, and Verdasco, together with Berdych maybe.

yes I like their match-up with Almagro, their match in Buenos-Aires was very pleasant.

In my opinion :

- Wawrinka is less error-prone, better movement and backhand

- Almagro is more powerful, has a better serve and forehand
