Re: Will Ferrer win a slam this year?
I think he will. I mean, looking at his ominous form, who can stop him really? Kevin Anderson played the match of his life and still only took a measly five games, Tommy Robredo would be his toughest opponent in normal conditions but after three consecutive five setters it's dubious that he will offer any meaninful resistance.
After that, who is left? Roger Federer? Surely David's relentless consistency from the baseline will be enough to prevail in this one and break down the Swiss. Novak Djokovic? The only 5-set match they played on clay a sub-peak David Ferrer demolished a peakiest of peaks Djokovic in 3 easy sets, so I don't see any problems there. Rafael Nadal? Remember Australian Open 2011? If David is executing well, he calls the shots in this matchup and his form seems to suggest that it will be the case.
Last but not least he's a much better player than Juan Martin del Potro and the Argentine has a Slam to his name, so logic suggests David will be winning at least a few himself in the near future.
