Re: Will Ferrer win a slam this year?

I dont see why this is a joke thread? Ferrer is in the top 5 favorites to win AO or RG.

Although in the past 6 or 7 years only GOAT contenders ( bar a couple) have won slams in the past rank outsiders could win slams so i hardly think a guy who is top 5 is incapable---RG is a very realistic chance as he can beat Murray and Djokovic on clay and theres no gurantee he will face Fed or Nadal there even if he did old man fed and injured nadal may not be the dominant threats they once were .... just saying.

Go Andy!

So very very proud to be a fan of Mr Andy Murray Wimbledon Champion 2013

Unfortunately I don't see Quickfoot grabbing a slam, but I think 2013 will be a fruitful year for him

Re: Will Ferrer win a slam this year?

Dont know if he will win a slam or not, but i have a feeling the next time he faces Nadal in a slam, he will beat him.

Re: Will Ferrer win a slam this year?

Wimbledon-I see no chance. Then comes the hard court personally I still do not see him beating Djokovic,Federer or Murray and there are still players like Del Potro, Tsonga ect who although Ferrer has a better head to head record can bring up a surprise on the hard courts.
His best chance would be a the French . Should Nadal not show up ,that would be a boost,however I do not see him beating a healthy Nadal if they meet. If nadal falls outside the top 4 and ferrer takes his spot having a draw where novak,federer and nadal on all the other side of the draw (although for that to happen Murray will have to be in the top 2 at that time)-that would be huge bonus for Ferrer as I think he can defeat Murray.
But overall i think he would also struggle in FO against someone like Djokovic,probably a better chance against Federer but never beaten him before it could be tough.
But hey who would have expect Del Potro to Win the US Open.Would love to see Ferrer win one.With Nadal injured best chance would be at the FO. But I do not believe he will win one this year.Hope he proves me wrong

Anyone who had been following tennis closely at the time. Del Potro beat Nadl 3 times in 2009 and Federer twice, those USO wins didn't come out of the blue.

Ridiculous comparison.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

Re: Will Ferrer win a slam this year?

Ferrer will never win slam, who the hell voted for him? He is great player, top 5 longer time now, but his only possible victory at slams over top 4 is vs Murray at RG - how he prooved in 2012. But no way he is going to beat Nole or Roger at slams, Murray will crush him on HC slams and Wimby was close last year, but Murray is clearly superior on grass. Even without Nadal out he must win 2 matches vs top 3- if we consider he has his spot - own quarter. Better question would be - Ferrer in F of slam i say no, his only chance to play slam F would be RG - 4th seed and having Murray in SF - if Murray will be 2nd instead of Roger

Re: Will Ferrer win a slam this year?

haha with Nadal gone it seems Ferrer is the new bully victim.


Guy is on the wrong side of 30 and has never been in a slam final. In how many attempts? He has tried, tried and then tried again. If he couldn't even reach a final in the years 2000-2012 I don't see why he'd suddenly win a slam in 2013. If he had "knocked on the door" Murray-style it's another thing but he hasn't even been close.

Re: Will Ferrer win a slam this year?

If Ferrer had the connections that Murray has, he would have won the USO last year. The only reason his match vs. Djokovic was suspended while the Murray matches vs. Djokovic and Berdych were not is because the ATP wanted a Djokovic vs. Murray final and Murray as champion. He's probably a better wind player than Murray and would have easily defeated the choking Murray from the final.

Does this mean Ferrer is a future slam champion? Probably not, it's more accurate to say neither he nor Murray should be anywhere near a slam. But you can't say Murray is a future slam champion and say there's "no chance" for Ferrer with a straight face.

Re: Will Ferrer win a slam this year?

Ferrer top level is just too weak. But IF Nadal doesn't show up at RG, IF Ferrer plays the best tennis of his life and IF he has to play only one top 4, maybe he has a chance.
