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.
Yeah, well, the Ferrer-tard in me thinks the same... I was really gutted to see how well he was playing in the wind, but everyone seemed to act as if they hadn't noticed and it was simply impossible for anyone to play.

But anyway, without going as far as conspiracy theories, I do believe that he is often treated in a shameful manner by the officials, and the reason may be either that he's not well-known enough, or that he is too kind to make a fuss. They know any of the top guys would throw a tantrum in one way or another if they did that, but Ferrer won't, so they can do what they want.

If he plays like Stan tonight, maybe. But realistically, no. Perhaps a final, but that's about it.

Re: Will Ferrer win a slam this year?

Djokovic doesn't get tired due to certain circumstances.

It would be great for David if Berdych beats him!

Re: Will Ferrer win a slam this year?

If Berdych wins or extends Djokovic to five, this is his best chance for a final ever



Matosevic, Hanescu, Lorenzi, Kukushkin, Chiudinelli, Gulbis, Bozoljac, Gabashvili, Hernych, Brown, Garcia-Lopez, Rosol, Zeballos, Istomin, Kohlschreiber, Tursunov, Robert, Gonzalez, Monaco, Thiem, Seppi

Re: Will Ferrer win a slam this year?

If there is one positive to come out of Murray's withdrawal it is the fact that it could really benefit Ferrer.

He avoids Nadal till the final. That is guaranteed. What needs to happen is for Djokovic to take Nadal out in the semi in a 6 hour epic, then Ferrer steps in to take the final.

Re: Will Ferrer win a slam this year?

Top half:

Dimitrov def. Djokovic
Gulbis def. Nadal

Bottom half:

Berdych/Tsonga def. Federer

Just to be sure.

Even if that was to happen, Djokovic would still beat Ferrer in the final. Or Federer would beat David in the semis before that.

Re: Will Ferrer win a slam this year?

Ferrer has no chance of making the final let alone winning it. Guy hasn't got the cojones when it really matters, even though his clay court game is pretty natural.
