WWW ? Valencia R1 : Ferrer - Rochus

A matchup between two similiar players. But they have some differences of course.

Oli, despite his size, is a nice shotmaker with some nice-to-watch forehands.

Vulture, on the other hand, relies on his defense and stamina.

I would love to say that the better player will win the match but given that Oli's been in a bad form recently, Ferrer is likely to win in 3.

Do you even watch Rochus? I'd say backhand is probably his better side.

I could stand either result, but Ferru in 2

Should be lots of long rallies. Poison for serve-bot and ballbasher lovers.

Nice OP!

Ferrer to win for the loss of 5 games, max.

One thing's for sure: no matter who wins this, this promises to be a short match.

They aren't similar players. Rochus is an all-court player with lots of variety and speed. Ferrer is an offensive grinder.

David should be fresh and should win easily.

So therefore, Ferrer would be the better player... usually the better player wins. Not sure if that's how the rules work though. Anybody have a handbook or something that I can check for this?

Yes this is quite unbiased... I don't know where your buddy Tyson's been but its really only you and pusher for life.
But hey, FOX News thinks they're unbiased as well. Lots of crazy people out there.
Thank god none of you or them will ever have any government positions of power if you think this is unbiased.
However Mark, I realize that this is actually somehow your opinion as opposed to trolling given your sensible thinking during the Super Saturday Fiasco.
not so sure about pusher... he might need to rework his opinions a bit...
