What's this talk about Ferrer in a slam final?

She is a professional, supposed to be partial and shut up about her crushes when the players on court have absolutely nothing to do with Federer. She will go like this: "oh look, what an awesome one-handed backhand from Gasquet! But you know who is the one-handed BH king? Roger Federer "

It gets a bit annoying.

To be honest I would just be happy if we saw an upset of one or more of the top 3 now. Even if it was Federer. Tennis is too predictable these days.
uhm...Ferrer is not troubling Murray in a slam final....ever.

It's totally understandable to me. If I were her, I'd be like, "Look, the players are breathing. But guess who breathes better? Roger Federer. "

<--should've added this smiley in my previous post haha

To be fair, that doesn't even bother me that much. It sucks, but you'll hardly find any commentator in any language who won't felate Federer on air

What's most annoying is her voice and how she must scream for the most trivial points and spend a minute describing how fabulous it was.

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

She has a huge thing for Federer, and I don't mean just his tennis.



I think it's a problem for everyone. Sometimes when I am in my hometown, close to Spain, I watch tennis on spanish channels, and guess what, they can't stop talking about Ferrer either. And Rafa. But they are the worst, most biased sportsfans in the world. I still love them, though.
I actually sent 2 emails. They never answered the first. They answered the second though saying they would look at it.

I always thought the woman was a huge nadal tard, go figure. Maybe she's a fedal fan.

I knew you were joking. She can also go like this: "Novak Djokovic playing player X in Wimbledon. He won Wimbledon last year, although he has obviously never won it as many times as RF."

Yeah, she one of the unbiased ones.

Anywys, I am going to stop derailing this thread. First Ferrer, not this.

The only person beating Djokovic in this tournament is Chardy.

Because Ferrer didnt EVER BEAT FEDERER

Federer vs Ferrer is 14-0 for Federer. He is , to Federer his personal punching bag , he has worse score with Federer than Rodick and Davydenko ever did.

Only Djokovic and Murray can take out the trash here / beat Federer.

Djokovic took set 6-4 against Berdych.

“Does Djokovic resemble myself?” Agassi said. “No, he is even better. He defends really well, while I struggled more in that element of the game. Novak looks totally relaxed when defending, completely calm and the quality of his return is incredible. He is also extremely flexible in his game, which is facilitated by his ability to anticipate his rival’s moves. That is why I think he is a much more versatile player than I was and he is also much more athletic.”

Berdych in 4. Just so it's not so much a case of 'same shit, different year' when it comes to players in the final.

Hopefully Berdy can take a set. I doubt it though.
