Who will win: Battle of the overlooked in home countries- Ferrer vs. Ginepri

Who do you think will win?

I think Ginepri will get it because he seems to have lost his headcasiness for good and has been on a tear recently. I would actually love for Ferrer to win but I think that he is the more inconsistent of the two.

After watching David's match today, I'm going to go with him. In my opinion, Robbie had a lot of help today from Davy's unforced errors. David really played some solid tennis against Puerto today.

This sounds farfetched.
But I predict that in due time, Rob will go down as one of the best hardcourters of all time.

In other words: 7-5, 6-2 for Ginepri

Ferrer is playing a lot better here than in his past tournamnets for the past few months. Should be a close 3 setter. I hope ginepri pulls it out.

Time to see how Ginepri handles a hostile crowd.

Ferrer didn't have any help from Puerta's unforced errors?? Let's keep in mind, Robby won his match in two sets, and David won his in three...

Don't loose your $, think about it, Kolya's forehand was bad, really bad, everything in the net and Ginepri was serving bad, especially in first set... And Ginepri had a serve for a match and the he choked, IMO if the seccond set went to the TB Kolya would turn it arround, but that's only my oppinion. Also Ferrer is big ? for me, he lost against Beto few days ago and he costed me a lot's of $, now he beat's Puerta which beat Mirny. I don't get it, but IMO 5/10 on over games or NO BET...

Looks like he handled it pretty well. Taking out Nadal will be a lot more difficult.

Really? I don't think the Frog is one of his faves, but he doesn't like American players does he? I bet he'll hate Donald Young as well :p

I didn't see the match but I doubt they would be hostile to Ginepri. They would be supporting Ferrer obviously but it wouldn't be nasty toward Ginepri like a Davis Cup match. I am watching Stepanek v Nadal now and when Stepanek hits a winner he is getting pretty fairly applauded.

I believe this is Robby's best showing abroad - he only seemed to play well at home (like James Blake) until this autumn.

:sad: David.

I wonder how many of the Ginepri haters will give the guy credit for improving his game? Good work Robby.

I think the Madrid crowd has for the most part been quite awesome. They are rooting for their favorites but are also respectful of the other players and applauding good shots- regardless of who makes them.

This has been a banner couple of months for both Blake and Robby where they have crossed over some hurdles- including success in Europe.
