Have you seen the odds at vbetting thread? Ferrer is a heavy favorite! Do you also think Murray will lose and easily? I don't. Murray in 2 for me :rocker2:

It's amazing that these two haven't played since 2006! Head to head 1-1 with Ferrer winning on clay (Barcelona) and Murray on hard (Canada). Bad draw for both players but it's the pick of the third round matches in my opinion.

First set Murray, second set long set to Ferrer, third set easy to Ferrer.

I wouldn't call 4/5 (0.80) a "heavy" favourite. Ferrer is slight favourite and these odds are about right. I think Murray has a good chance but I'm not putting any vcash on it.

Ferrer will handle him in two sets. 7-5 6-3

If Murray plays his best it could get tight, but he won't since this is clay, so I expect Ferrer to handle Murray in to comfortable sets...maybe something like 6:3-6:4

Hard to say. It could go either way.
Surface is quite fast here, so Murray has some chances.

Agree completely. I think folks are underrating Murray right now, he's been flying under the radar recently and I wouldn't be surprised to see him finally make his mark here again.
Not putting any cash on this match though... tricky affair.

I agree. I picked Ferrer, but only based on form of late. The dry low humidity conditions today really favor murray. This promises to be a very interesting match.. (no vcash on this one either) toss up.

Ferrer in 3. He can outlast opponents from the baseline and has a very strong attacking game on clay, so will be too tough for Murray I think.

He hasn't been even on the radar...how is losing 1st match of last 2 tournaments flying under the radar?

But if Murray wants to win he has to do what he hates the most: Play aggressive tennis. Simple as that. If he plays his usual pusher bs game, he'll lose...badly. Add to this the fact that Ferrer is one of the best returners in the game, Murray won't be able to count on his serve getting him out of many tight situations. Aggressive tennis is his only option.

My prediction: Murray will start defensively, will get broken/lose a set...will try to play aggressive, start making unforced errors...revert back to defensive mode and lose. The End.

A 'way of expression' I guess. Look up 'understatement'. :)

Ferrer has been playing too much tennis of late. He will run of gas. I expect Murray's variety to get him a win and a confidence boost. May go to three sets with Murray taking it!

Chances of that happening are pretty slim...he's one of the fittest guys on tour. I get tired just watching him IN BETWEEN POINTS! He's ALWAYS running/walking fast (similar to Roddick in that respect).

Murray - Awful form currently, clay is his worst surface.
Ferrer - Very good form, clay is his best surface.

Everything points towards one result, but I always have listened to my heart more than my head. Murray in 2.

Man, I wish I put some money on my own prediction!
