I can appreciate Ferrer's game and what he's done to maximise his talents. The consistency of his groundstrokes is to be applauded. I prefer Haas' variety but I don't care enough either way to be bitter about it, I just want the most (possibly) entertaining final.
Ferrer/Murray is like an even worse version of the Nole/Murray match up.
This isn't wrestling. It isn't predetermined. We can't always get the best match up possible. Sometimes we're treated, other times slightly underwhelmed. Tennis would be ponderous if we were constantly treated with great match-ups.
I disagree. Most supported Haas because it was kinda a fairytale. A 35-year old guy beating Nole and reaching Masters SF. That being said you have to admit that Ferrer's game is boring and predictable.
Oh, is that right? Haas has been an internet darling long before his recent run at Miami. Certain imbeciles love to indulge in their infatuation with him because he brings an "old-school" game of tennis to the table, which is refreshing to see in comparison to today's apparent "dullness". Haas has a sublime all-court style, but certain, selective groups of deluded fanboys tend to believe he is a Messiah of sorts, saving tennis from its current rut. I am not pointing out anybody on this forum, but do some browsing on the internet and you'll see for yourself.
Yes, his run was endearing to see, I'm not denying that, but Ferrer clinches a victory today and all you see is exaggerated pap such as "tennis is dead". Nonsense.
