He has amazing pick up volleys which requires good hand work. And i don't why people are taking too much of the Olympics match. Ferrer was horrible and was clearly gassed out. Even if you watch his doubles there was just nothing there anymore.
Thank you! Why don't you go and repeat that on the Ferrer/Nishikori WWW thread?
He was gassed out, and in the doubles, he was sometimes playing great, but you could see that it was mostly adrenaline and the fact that he was playing his heart out. I think he may have gone too far, he seemed a little shattered afterwards (their loss to the French pair was one of the most heartbreaking defeats I've ever seen...) But anyway, he was obviously tired at that point.
I also think he can do some really great volleying. He used that a lot in Valencia and in Bercy, mostly to very good effect.
