Lol what? You make it sound as if he's hated for no reason, when this is known not to be the case. He won't be 'damned' if he stops killing tennis with his robotic game and distorting seedings in big events by vulturing to get an inflated ranking. Do you see any other players getting hate for this very same reason? No, and it's not a coincidence.

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

For all those booting Ferrer for having the cheek to win, Haas won the first set playing good attacking tennis. It was the German who lost composure and barely hit a first serve in set 2 and 3, so blame him for becoming error strewn. The Spaniard just did what he normally does. Not his fault that an unfocused Tommy Tantrum reappeared.

He didn't lose composure at all actually. Just general fatigue and a relentless Ferrer which caused the stark drop in play.

Haas losing was so not fair

We will have a very boring final now

Disgusting result though, Ferrer with another fluked masters run and perhaps title. He would've lost the moment he faced a decent player, yet none seem to come on his path. If he faces Gasquet that would be a fitting way to end this tournament.
IDK, Ferrer has some nice kills on his resume. I remember him manhandling djoker around at barclays in 2011 as if he was a club player. His matches are usually competitive against the other top players, and you usually have to beat him to get the win. That's why I respect him. Not everyone can be a superstar.

Great read in this 16 page topic so far. It's like the guy shot Santa Claus or some shit.

Wouldn't have minded if Haas won this one (love his game), but good to see Ferrer through

Game over. Forever.

Ferrer was awful up until 2-5*, spraying UE all over the place. After that he started dominating the match by upping his game. Haas' lack of first serves helped with that, of course.

Re: Miami SF - Ferrer hindrances Haas out 4-6 6-2 6-3

so many non-sports fans here. go back to the movie theatre, where you will get your scripted happy ending with things turning out as you think they "ought" to be.

Ferrer won. He won. Deal with it.

Great chance for Ferrer to get a Masters title, he certainly deserves one.

Semifinal of Miami was huge for Haas. It would be a joke if he got into the final.

I went to work as soon as Tommy got broken in the 2nd set. Seems like I didn't miss much. It was nice while it lasted, Haas

This is beyond of stupid. I used to stay away from idiotic "Ferrer's ranking is unfair" dispute but the guy speaks as if he has right

Really, really?!!!

Are you in a theater? In a concert? In an art gallery?

It's SPORT! Sport is fair per se! Who wins is better, period. Game style does not matter, result matters. You may like one team more than another, you can love Brazilians and hate Germans, but if Germany scores and Brazil doesn't, it means they win. Never heard people complaining that X runner won unfairly because he runs like a robot when runner Y runs much more aesthetically pleasing. Imagine something like that being said about boxing for example!

But tennis, of course, here anyone who never played the game can talk about who deserves to win more and why!

Yeh, the Ferrer forehand was erratic to say the least. It was combination of Ferrer stepping up and Haas going off the boil that lead to the end result. If Haas had played like he had previously in the tournament for the duration of the match then he would have won.

Its all well and good for people to say attacking tennis lost, and to an extent I agree, but for an offensive game to be effective it must be maintained throughout the match. I therefore cannot see how criticism of Ferrer is justified when Haas did not maintain his high standards from earlier in the week.

For those suggesting Haas was tired, that probably had more to do with the fact the German is pushing 35 and going deeper than usual. The first set did not appear to arduous.

But the gradient here is based on the actual tennis players.

In terms of unwatchability here is my top 3 -

1. Ferrer
2. Raonic
3. Anyone else has smth appealing, ever Troicki, even Isner, even Simon, etc.

So from the active tennis players i rate Ferrer unwatchable. And the weight of the term is just in the eyes of the beholder

You're a Pics fan? This really surprises me. Hopefully you can show some love to hooligan one day. You're a caring guy deep down.
