One match 5 years ago means anything?
Yes, it does, because Kei was a fecking teen, and Ferrer had already established himself as a top player, even (and perhaps particularly) on hards. Would you rather me cite their recent Olympic encounter?
To suggest that Ferrer's simply too good is fanaticism; it's ignorant of multiple things, not in the least bit the fact that his opponent has beat him in a hc major before.
Ferrer is a top player, no doubt, but you guys are ascribing him an aura that he hasn't yet earned.
