"Cool story"? Such superficially shallow internet slang/terminology.

Ferrer/Murray is like an even worse version of the Nole/Murray match up.
Murray/Simon is bad too!

it's always good to observe things from a perspective, right?

Maybe because he eliminated Haas, who seems to be an internet darling?
Ferrer was borderline cheating with his grunts right before Haas hits the ball.

And those were most intense during the major games like at 6-4 *2-3 and the first half of the third set.

Everyone knows he's unwatchable, but respects him for being a fighter. I was the same until this match, in which i suspect him in intentionally trying to send Haas off with this despicable grunting.

Now i have no reason to respect this ball machine.

And his "multiple" winners are just lay offs and aces, except for one good return winner.

I used to watch some of these. There is some very weird stuff going on in this fandom, though. I could never quite figure out how they ended up having each character from the anime sing their own version of Valentine's Kiss by Kokusho Sayuri.
Always liked the anime (actually first became a Kei fan when he tried to imitate the jumping backhands, it was hilarious stuff), but got into the mangas lately and they're far better and more realistic. The anime is awfully slow paced at times (not to mention they often rally inside the baseline ) and yes the fandom can be quite bizarre.

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

Therefore:

Tispsarevic > Haas.

Ferrer, well done again. You deserve your ranking.
Stop it.

From the most objective perspective possible, that's correct.

He's not unwatchable. How can somebody who evidently is a tennis fan call Ferrer's game "unwatchable"? Such ludicrous hyperbole. Yes, his game can be unappealing and plain at times, there's no denying that, but "unwatchable"? Ferrer may be a shallow ball grinder, but he is capable of giving us neat winners, diverting rallies and entertaining matches most of the time. Perhaps today's encounter with Haas wasn't the most primitive example. If you seriously believe Ferrer is as unwatchable as you so mindlessly claim, then I question how much you value the sport.

Ferrer's resiliency and attitude are respectable but he's really killing tennis with his style of play
