Båstad F : Ferrer def. Almagro 6-2 6-2

Almagro was fortunate to get to the final saving match point against Minar. DGT converting 1/12 break points, plus having some shoulder problems.

Ferrer didn't have to do that much today to make it 11-0 in the H2H. He was solid when he needed to be, but Almagro was struggling like he as all week and the shoulder was playing up again.

Yes, Lenders before bitching about Ferrer, he gets a whole 25 points for winning Båstad.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

The vulture played well today as usual and Almagro was just out of it.

The Penultimate Enemy to all Injustice


Federer was the pioneer of first-strike all-court tennis. This is the real tennis and the beautiful game. Never forget the beauty of what was tennis. Nadull and Fakervic don't win tennis matches. They simply outlast their opponent with endless grinding and stamina. That is ugly. Beautiful tennis is gone now. Never forget the good days of real tennis.

Ferrer getting a pair of skis, he can use that in Andorra.

Almagro apologised to the crowd, appreciated their support especially the doctors. Almagro to Ferrer during thank you speech: "You are a great player, you are a better person."

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Nico Hopefully he beats Ferru once though I doubt it after the 11th loss.
Congrats to Ferru.

Re: Båstad F : Ferrer def. Alamgro 6-2 6-2

You know what I find funny? I cannot even find a real reason to hate Ferrer with the kind of passion that Mug Lenders and Tyclown0712 carries.

It is not like Ferrer has overachieved (because I know that can spawn haters), so that's not it. Neither is the guy arrogant or even loud - he's one of the most silent and humble guys on the tour.

I do understand how you can dislike his game though (even if he is not nearly as defensive as these guys are saying). I myself am no fan of for example Simon's game. But the thing is, Gilles seems like a nice guy so I still bear no real hate for him. And I dislike Nadal but I still respect him. (I find Roddick a pain as well but in my defense his attitude is awful.)

Yet Ferrer has haters because he is a "vulture". Yes he likes playing small tournaments where he has a real shot to win, are you telling me you wouldn't if you were in his shoes? Get real already. It's not like he doesn't live up to his ranking in the slams either - QF, SF & QF is his results there this year.

And so, my conclusion:
The only reason why you would make this much noise against David Ferrer is spelled like this:

"attention whoring".

Incidentally MTF trolls' favorite pastime. Boring and infantile stuff.
