I think Pics will prove to be a bit too much here, but I hope to see Rycka grab at least one set. Ferrer makes for just about the perfect indicator to see where a youngster is at.

Ferrer in 3. He has very good form, I don't think he will lose to Berankis. (If he isn't tired after Auckland title from last week, but I don't think.)

Yeah, I can agree with the logic on Nishikori.

This is likely to be a more physical battle as hot and sunny conditions are forecast, and you would probably have to side with Ferrer to come out on top in that. However, Berankis does have a nice array of shots so I could also see him catching Ferrer off-guard. Very interesting match-up.

Ferru in 3. Berankis win over Nalby was an "accident"...if you know what I mean.
No offense to Berankis but a fresh David would have trashed him in 3.
Ferru is not exhausted by a 4h48 match so he'll win easily I guess

Ferrer is a bit too experienced for Berankis.

He is in good form and has not faced a single breakpoint in his match against Russell.

It's Ricardas not Richard. Lithuanian names can't end in letter d, only -as, -ius, -is for men. Just throwing it out.
Predictions for the game my heart says Berankis win, but my mind says it's Ferrer 60% : Berankis 40% chances.

Exactly. That and the fact that both guys are diminutive fighters makes this the match I'm most looking forward to tomorrow.
Pics has definitely shown where Dolgopolov is at :tape:

Ferrer is in good form & can trouble nadull,however not beat him.
Almugro/fiasco/lopez are his spanish bitchboys that bend over for him,, ferrer doesn't bend over.
The lopsided h2h is due to clay where 9 of the 14 matches were played on clay.
The HC h2h is 3-2 nadull but one of those matches was a 1st set retirement, so in completed matches its 2-2 on HC.
He is a better option than this berankis fellow imo.

Ferrer should win easily, in 3.

Berankis is good, but he's not good enough to challenge a player as great as Ferrer.

He didn't change his name. Why would someone change his name, makes no sence atleast to me. If he have changed for some strange reason, i would know. I folow his carrer quite closelly, it's a small country Lithuania. Mayby he is using this name for the tour. I mean to not make life harder for officials, but officialy his name is still Ričardas.

Same reason that Dolgopolov is now calling himself "Alex Dolgopolov" instead of Oleksandr, it just makes it easier for the English-speaking media and commentators to say their names.

Only changed his name for the ATP. He's still called Ricardas on his passport and the rest.

Tomorrow it will be cloudless 30°C on court, typical Ferrer weather to proof his Fitness and fightin skills. He`ll not let go any point for free, no chance for Berankis. Maybe he`ll win a set, but no more.


Vamos David!:armed:

Whereas Berankis looks to you like someone who'll be mightily bothered by the heat and who lacks in fighting spirit?

If Berankis produces THAT shotmaking like he did against Nalby, The Nadull Follower will be outbitched in straights.

Dont say he doesn´t, but Ferrer will show him how its really done under these conditions. (Hope so ;))

People writing here say's that Ferrer is big fighter, but i can say that Ferrer will not have advantage here. Berankis is fighter that doesn't give up and he's very tough mentally. Still if i would bet money i say Ferrer will win, mainly because of his expierence, but hope for Berankis win.
This season looks like breakout season for Berankis and i expect good things from him next year, mayby in the later Grand slams this year.

...yeah, you say that now, and then Berankis beat Ferrer and loses to Nadal 2,2, and 1, and then you'll bitch about how easy Nadal's draw is.

I think your getting ahead to mutch, first let's see the match. I think Ricka has decent chances.
About the Hawaii i think Balzekas said that they will go if Berankis will loose in two first rounds, mayby it's to late for Hawaii now.
