Wimbys Round of 16: Federer VS Ferrero

This is what i have been waiting for...a match on grass between the two. Guess Rogi should win but can JC push him to the limits???

Q. As the older player, you don't feel like it's your role to go up to the younger players and talk to them first?

If Roger plays like he did today, JC will give him a lot more than he can handle

Re: Wimbys Round of 16: Federer VS Ferrero

It would have been nice if those of us in the US could have watched the Roger match but instead we got Maria...then Venus...now a Maria interview.

Hello ESPN....do you have a clue about what you are doing?????

Re: Wimbys Round of 16: Federer VS Ferrero

It should be a great match, indeed. I think Roger will win, raising his level and being consistent a bit more should be enough to do so, even if not in an easy way.


Roger Federer

Richard Gasquet, Marcos Baghdatis, Tomas Berdych, Evgeny Korolev, Stanislas Wawrinka, Fabrice Santoro, Paul-Henri Mathieu, etc

Re: Wimbys Round of 16: Federer VS Ferrero

Ferrero seems to be playing well- despite his unfair label as a claycourter he has had some decent results on grass making it to the 4th and 3rd rounds at Wimbledon in the last 2 years respectively. I haven't seen any match play as yet so I cannot comment further on his or Roger's form at this time but this is certainly a match I am looking forward to and curious to see how it will pan out and which player will use what tactics against the other.

Ferrero does have the ability to stand further inside the baseline and take some of the balls early and I think it is a tactic he will need to employ. If he serves consistently that will also be a key as he does have a very good serve which is underrated IMO. Roger will have to mix it up with his serve and use the slice to good effect and keep the ball low off the ground. If he can draw Ferrero into the net it will serve him in good stead as Ferrero's volleying skills are somewhat questionable especially if Roger hits dipping passing shots at his shoe strings. More factors will be how often Roger takes the net, the quality of his approach shots and how well Ferrero's passing shots will be.

Should be a great match to watch.

Did he play bad today? I don't think so I have no clue of how JC is playing right now, but from the scoreline, he should be in form. But JC has a totally different game from Kiefer. Kiefer's s/v was a big threat to Roger, and he did quite good today to push Roger. However agree Roger has to lift his game a bit against JC.

Re: Wimbys Round of 16: Federer VS Ferrero

If Roger plays like he did today (which was well, despite losing a set) he would cruise against Ferrero.
