Ferrero vs Safin: who will win?

I'm surprised nobody has made a thread yet for this interesting matchup. Are people anxious about it? Maybe it's one of those I don't want either one to lose-type thing for most of you.

Anyhoo, here's their head-to-head (Safin leads 4-3)

Looking forward to furiously clicking the "refresh" button on this one

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Ferrero vs Safin: who will win?

I really like Juan Carlos in three today... He has to pick up form against a top player at some point, right??

Re: Ferrero vs Safin: who will win?

I want Ferrero to win, but that will depend on how well they both will play (how obvious is that?).

Re: Ferrero vs Safin: who will win?

Either for me.. I love them both. This match is already delivering though. Like Fed-Gonzo both guys are hitting the ball very very crisply. Safin's 1st serves have been dodgy but both are hitting the lines on baseline rallies already. An early Safin break cancelled out immediately by a break back.

It surely cannot be long till Ferrero gets back to the very top. Some of it has got to be confidence. The loss to Ferrer in Miami a missed opportunity to get back on the road quicker but the way he's hitting at the moment is very impressive.

3 consecutive breaks of serves then and Ferrero leading 4-2.

Contrary to popular belief, I am not a Rafa hater. I am, however, a RAFATARD hater and therefore take endless delight in each Rafa loss as it allows me to sock it hard to his tards. Do try and understand the difference (TARDS)! Don't get me started on Choke-ovic though. Him I do despise. And his TARDS are the lowest of the low .

Re: Ferrero vs Safin: who will win?

I'm with JCF.

Should he win, I just hope it'll be the begining of something and not just another win followd by another loss.

BTW ,when for the last time did he win 3 matches in a row?

Re: Ferrero vs Safin: who will win?

out of form Ferrero in general maybe. he's not playing like he's out of form this afternoon. solid groundstrokes.. not giving anything cheaply to Safin.
