Re: Will Ferrer win a slam this year?

This is far from impossible:

Gulbis df Nadal in rd 4
Wawrinka df Djokovic in QF
Berdych df Federer in QF
Almagro df Gulbis in QF
Almagro df Wawrinka in SF

Ferrer df Tsonga in QF
Ferrer df Berdych in SF
Ferrer df Almagro in F

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

Not gonna happen. Not this year. Not ever.

Too much of Ernests and Kei is good for my health.

He will win the same number of slams this year as Berdych/Tsonga/Delpo. aka, none.

Re: Will Ferrer win a slam this year?

Lol at the haters getting all worried

Ferrer could get a really good draw here and easily reach the final.

Re: Will Ferrer win a slam this year?

No way he is winning a slam ever.Sorry.
No way everyone capable of beating him gets early exit.
Too many superior ones.

Re: Will Ferrer win a slam this year?

I can't imagine the kind of meltdowns we would see on this place if Ferrer wins a slam. It would be very entertaining, no doubt.

Re: Will Ferrer win a slam this year?

Page 6 of this thread restored my faith on MTF. There's no way in hell this mug will ever win a Slam, or even reach a final. Ferrer must be the most overrated player in MTF, bar none.

He could play his very best tennis for seven matches in a row, with no dips, and he'd still not win a Slam. Even some random mindless basher like Golubev has a better chance.

Unless by 'good draw' you mean all its opponents will withdraw, then no Vulture won't be anywhere near the final.

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 (5): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013, Geneva 2015, Sydney 2016 and Buenos Aires 2016 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 3 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?

Where have you all been for the last 2 years?

You make it sound like Ferrer is some mug. He is not. This guy only loses to top 4 players at slams these days, it's a safe bet he'll be there well into the second week.

Re: Will Ferrer win a slam this year?

Ferrer hasn't even been within a set of a Grand Slam final.

In fact even clowns like Verdasco have been closer to a final than him.

This isn't changing either. So no.

Agreed. He essentially can't meet Djokovic or Nadal ever (in a slam), and he can't draw Federer on any surface but clay (now, that is; Federer would have easily beaten him on clay too in the past). He can beat Murray on clay, but his chances on the other surfaces against the Scot aren't great. And he can beat anyone else on the tour, especially on clay.

The draw for this Roland Garros is probably the best chance he'll ever get. He can't draw Djokovic until the semis at the earliest, and he can't draw Nadal until the final, so they'll be facing more quality opponents before they theoretically meet Ferrer. If Djokovic and Nadal go out relatively early (not unthinkable given their respective forms this year), his odds go up substantially.

And he will continue to lose to them. Hence, no final, let alone a slam.

He will get either Federer or Djokovic in his half. Judging by these two guys form this year on clay they are not guaranteed to make the semis. I'd say there are very good chances that Federer loses in the quarters or something. Djokovic would probably make the semi but clay is definitely Ferrers best chance of beating him. They have played 8 sets on the dirt with Ferrer winning 6 of them.

Problem is that most of those sets are ancient history, and the one that isn't was at a tournament that hasn't played like traditional clay in the past (Madrid).

Today, Djokovic is without a doubt the second best clay courter on the planet and possibly the best when in peak form. He'll destroy Ferrer if he meets him in Roland Garros.
