Good lord, that first set was close. Ferrer played exceptionally shitty in the first set and second, and I was sleeping for the rest of the match.

Anyway love Hewitt but Ferrer was always going to outlast him in the end

Game over. Forever.

Ferrer specializes in beating players who are injured or inexperienced or are old and 'washed up' as you put it. It's negative tennis helps him beat players with the weaknesses i described and adds more to his status as king of the vultures. He is the ultimate scavenger really when you think about it. An old Hewitt who has faced many surgeries and now struggles in conditions that bring out his beaten body is Ferrer's favorite opponent.

Also Ferrer was leading 4-1 in the first set. He isn't the mental warhorse you all think he is.

Re: US Open R3 : Ferrer def. Hewitt 7-6 (9) 4-6 6-3 6-0

At Hewitt's age i doubt he was up for another one of Ferrer's classic fitness tests. That's what it is after all when playing Ferrer, a fitness test and not a tennis match. There is no chess like play involved or variety to bring opponents off rhythm its a grind fest with the winner decided who can last the longest running around and hitting the balls back with no ambition. Basically the brain has no place in Ferrer matches, its all in the legs. Tennis wasn't supposed to be played like this, its a gentleman's sport and not for the working man That's why this pisses me off it should be groomed for the working man where endurance treating and ball machines take preference over talent and tennis. Basically your stamina becomes more important than the tennis itself. Ferrer exemplifies that mindset, watching this match was hard because Hewitt should have exposed Ferrer's glaring tennis. Don't grind withe the guy, don't be afraid to mix things up and play tennis.

Hewitt's serve has also gone to the dogs - Ferrer was all over it and when that happens the pushing commences. It saddens me because back in the day Hewitt would never have let a guy like Ferrer beat him, the grunt and the pushing, Hewitt would never lose to that. Hewitt may be a fighter but he's now turned to complete tripe on the big points

Hewitt needs to get a life and just move on. The only real question is why cant he do that.

It took you 9 hours after the match was completed to compose this tired diatribe. The dog in your avatar could have come up with more a more convincing argument in that time. In case you haven't heard, tennis is a sport. Sports requires professional athletes to have supreme fitness in order to perform at the highest levels. By training hard to have the best fitness possible, it means that Ferrer is a professional who takes his job seriously.

Talent can only get athletes so far in any sport. It is the dedication & sacrifice that comes with extensive training, good nutrition, and smart lifestyle choices, in addition to talent, that allows athletes to reach the top levels of their field. The tour has plenty of players who are just as fit as Ferrer. Why has he reached number 5 in the world while the rest haven't? Could it be that he has some talent in addition to his remarkable fitness?

In my mind, a gentleman is someone who respects hard work and discipline in others rather than deriding it. So you speaking as to what constitutes a "gentleman's sport" is just laughable.

Also Ferrer was leading 4-1 in the first set. He isn't the mental warhorse you all think he is.
THAT MUST BE IT!!
So the term vulturing must be referring to how David flies into the draw ceremony and plucks out the easiest draw possible for himself before the officials can do anything! It's such a perfect plan! Now that must be why he's ranked #5. It's because he has direct control over his slam draws
And his specializing in beating old players. Obviously under his control as well. Somebody should do something about this monopoly that David has over all the draws in his tournaments.

And of course Hewitt is such a mental giant as well, is he not? He was leading 6-3 in the first set tiebreak before deciding that he felt bad for taking that 4-1 lead from Ferrer. Oh wait. I'm sorry, I believe the lead was only 3-1. David never had a two break lead in the first set and Hewitt served first so a 4-1 lead never happened. But yea, choking when you have a 6-3 lead in a tiebreak and another chance to serve it out at 8-7 is REAL mental toughness.

Tyson, maybe you should start the washed up players coalition since you've been here less than 3 months and you already seem like a washed up tennis fan and poster

It's amazing to think that these guys are roughly the same age, but have played their best tennis nearly a decade apart!

Hewitt's still got it, but Ferrer's got too much fire in him right now, despite his form. Give Lleuton a few more months, and he'll be really dangerous.

Love the fact that Ferrer gets giving crap despite winning. Incredible stuff.

He's a model pro that everyone else should aim to be like. Has done the absolute best that he can with the talents he had.
