I was there and it was awesome... It's true that Wawrinka did not really shine, except in the second set.
Also during that second set Ferru made a couple of very big mistakes, but then he got his game together for the third. Overall I had the impression that he was playing really quite well, better than he'd been playing before he took his little break.

Exactly. I was curious to see this stat, because it was really my impression that he had been incredibly good at the net yesterday. And from what I saw, it was already true during the whole week in Valencia. When he tries to play in doubles, you can also see that, although he's far from being a real doubles player, he's really able to volley very well when he has to.

For a few months now, I've been thinking that he should really come to the net more. It works very well for him. Yesterday I noticed that when he reverted to his usual baseliner's game (or at least the type of points that people see as "characteristic" of Ferrer) he was actually LESS successful. "Pushing" did not give him many points yesterday, more often than not he was the one who made the first mistake. Whenever he started playing with more variety and attacking more, it was much, much better.

One of the rare times Topspindoc says something that makes sense.

Educating MTF clowns one post at a time.
So many fanboys to troll, so little time.

Favourite tennis matches: 2011 US Open Final & 2012 Australian Open Final, starring Novak Djokovic & Rafael Nadal, showing us just how far science can take humanity.

The US Open Final was especially enjoyable, with 'Why are there white spots all over my body?' Djokovic and 'Why am I sweating boils?' Nadal embarked on a titanic battle, concluding with the inferior player, Nadal, entering a sort of delirious state of psychosis. This allowed him to, while showing very little fatigue, consume inhuman amounts of energy, before he literally ran his legs from underneath him. This is truly the stuff dreams are made of.
