WWW Roland Garros SF: Ferrer - Nadal?

This is your moment, David. Your time to shine.

Defeat this disgrace to the noble sport of tennis, take the title and retire, never to be seen again.

Re: WWW RG SF: Nadal vs. Ferrer

Where's the poll? Or is the only option Nadal in 3?

Football is one of the few areas of life where even if you're untutored, you can go to a ground and see George Best beat three men, and you can realise, 'I have seen genius.'

Not going to happen. David will do well to force a tiebreaker. Straight sets for Nadal.

WWW: RG '12 All-Armada SF: (6) David Ferrer (ESP) vs (2) Rafael Nadal (ESP)

15-4 H2H in favour of Nadal.

Ferrer has beaten Rafa in their last 2 slam meetings (USO 2007 and AO 2011).

Most recently they've played twice on clay this year. David should have won the opening set in both matches (and should have won in straight sets in Barcelona).

Can he trouble Nadal again here, or will it be a 7th RG final for the King of clay?

Juan Martin Del Potro

David Ferrer - Tommy Haas - Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Andy Roddick - Juan Carlos Ferrero - Mardy Fish

Re: WWW Roland Garros SF: Ferrer - Nadal?

Rafa in straights. His draw to the final seems Barcelona's draw...

8th day of July 2012: 7-time Wimbledon champion!

Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!

Re: WWW RG SF: Nadal vs. Ferrer

Another really hard match for Nadal. Really impressive how he made this far against such an oposition. And a SF against his friend Ferrer is just too much. Poor Nadal.

Re: WWW RG SF: Nadal vs. Ferrer

7-6(10) 6-2 6-1 to Rafito, Pics choking about seven set points.

Can dream of a miracle though.

Re: WWW RG SF: Nadal vs. Ferrer

Ferrer has no weapons against Nadal on this surface. This will be routine. Nadal will be well rested for whoever comes out of the other half of the draw.

Football is one of the few areas of life where even if you're untutored, you can go to a ground and see George Best beat three men, and you can realise, 'I have seen genius.'

Re: WWW RG SF: Nadal vs. Ferrer

Interesting fact: Ferrer has a positive HTH against Nadal in slams (2-1), with wins at the AO and USO. Clay will probably be a different story, but at least he has the confidence of knowing he's beaten Nadal in BO5 format before.
