Almagro would have had a better chance. He was crushing the ball.

Obviously the HTH is heavily in Federer's favour, but Ferrer did trouble Roger last time they played in Madrid, so... Federer in 3.

Ferrer played great today but Fed has him figured out. Might go to 3 though.

If this was Micky Carlo-like ass slow clay I would give Ferrer a chance.
In this conditions it's going to be a routine victory for The Old Man.

Federer in 2 to set up a mouthwatering clash with Djokovic in the semis, where his run will come to an end.

Ferrer probably has the 2nd best record on clay this year. If Nando can beat Rafa I see no reason the 2nd best player on clay this year can't win over someone just coming back from extended leave. On any other surface I'd go with Roger but this being clay you have to go with the in form guy.

I just hope that David kept his composure and don't ask Roger for an autograph in the middle of the match.

Isn't Federer undefeated against Ferrer despite playing him 14 or 15 times?

Ferrer has a worst record against Roger than Roddick. 0-14. Think about that for a second. Then add in the fact that this is a fast court with really low bounces.

Does Ferrer has a chance? Wow, that's a hard one.

Yeah but did you see the gasquet match today? Federer is in dangerous form.

Ferrer also just played a 3+ hour epic.

I can't help but think that Federer might be set up for the fall here.

With that said, I can't see lightning striking twice in the same tournament. Federer in 2.

Of course anything can happen but why all the people think that if Verdasco was able to beat Nadal here, Ferrer also can beat Federer? Fast conditions are clearly advantage for Verdasco against Nadal and Federer against Ferrer. :shrug:

Despite the possibility of Fed getting to number 2, I really want Pics to win this. He really needs a win against Federer. If Verdasco can do the impossible than so can Ferrer.

The surface does give an advantage to Federer though, so he'll probably win. Hoping for Ferrer in 3.

This clown is 0-12 vs Fed, hes lost 25 of the 28 sets they've played, and he's also 0-4 on clay. If there were ever a lopsided matchup, its this one. All streaks eventually come to an end. Fed lost to Roddick this year, Nole lost to Nadal in a final, Verdasco actually beat Nadal, but this surface is probably one of the best surfaces Federer could hand pick for himself and this is probably Ferrer's least favorite clay. If this was in MC, I might give Ferru a chance to win 10 games in the match but on this surface I'd be surprised if he won 7 games. Fed easily.

I think Federer will be playing better and better throughout this tournament especially because of the Raonic match. I don't think Federer will be troubled. Although after seeing what happened to Nadal and his mistress Verdasco, the tennis gods could shock us again.

Ferrer may be a clay courter, but IMO he is better at faster surfaces anyways, which is evident by his strong hardcourt slam results.

A day after Nadal was upset by one of his pigeons, it would only be fitting if Ferrer put in a similar effort.

But I want to see Fed and Djoker play.

But Verdasco taught us an important lesson yesterday. No top player should be discarded.

Could be tight. I think and hope Fed gets it done in two, he has a genuine shot at the title, but Ferrer can push him on all surfaces, especially on clay

Ok but in the other thread you said you are openly anti-Fed and proud of it. :facepalm:

So does that mean people can be openly anti-Nole_fan and be proud of it? :D

Federer is not even my No. 1 player but you gotta admit his game-style is much more fluid and varied than baseline hugging ball-smashing Djokovic. Do you think that Novak plays prettier than Roger? Not to mention Novak's chest-thumping victory celebrations are so shamelessly unclassy it turns a lot of people off.

Yes of course I like Novak's game better than Federer. That's why I'm his fan and not ballerina's. :rolleyes:
Personally i can't care less about people being turned off by nole's celebrations. It's usually people who look as if they have a poker up their arse.

Can't see anything but Federer in 2.

He played one sloppy game at the end of the first set against Raonic, and saved another break point (which was a virtual match point) near the end of the 2nd set in that match. Other than that, he has been flawless. Also, faster conditions only favour Federer here.

On a normal clay court Ferrer could take a set.

On this I can't see him even getting close to taking a set.

You are allowed to like Novak's game more than Federer's. So why exactly do those who prefer Fed's calm on-court demeanor over Novak's "look as if they have a poker up their arse"? Ridiculous.

Ferrer has won a lot of matches on clay this year! Given Fed's rustiness he's got a great chance especially when you see the likes of Tipsy beating Nole and Nando beating Rafa.
