There ends the lesson.

Hope Berankis took copious notes.

Ferrer was terrific. No change for Ricardas from the very start. 46-15 UE's , 1 ace for Berankis. That'll be a lesson indeed.

Ricardas started ok, but Ferrer was just too good for him. The talent is there and I'm sure he will grow as a player and be among the tops for a long time.

Shame about that heavy scorline, but very nice tournament Ricas! He have to feel proud of himself!

Ferrer is in very good shape, IMO. I can't miss that match versus Milos!

1st live opponent and he gets destroyed. So much for Berankis' hype.

Berankis never had a hope. Ferrer was absolutely terrifying vs Russell, this was basically a straight repeat.

I suggest we go back and read the WWW thread for this match again. Some good laughs.

Keep it up Richard though, I'm liking what I see, he's got a good future.

40 of his wins were outworldly spectacular. Each of them counts as two. Wish he lends Rafa his ROS just for this tournament :) That would make Rafa invincible LOL

A little bit too much of everything for Ricardas today. David solid as hell from the baseline, not much more to do for the Lithuanian :hug:
David :yeah: Raonic next :)

Pics is having a great year so far.

A lesson indeed for Berankis. But he'll probably learn from it.

Ouch :sad:

If Berankis returns like that against Ferrer, he'll beat him fairly easily. Absolutely murdering 2nd serves and a lot of 1st. Pics doesn't have a better serve.

Ouch indeed. A little different when you know your opponent is in it for real.

I thought Berankis would trouble Ferrer a bit more. But, it was obvious Ferrer would win, Berankis isn't prepared for the likes of him yet.

Normal win for Ferrer. Berankis win over Nalby was a fake since David couldn't defend his chances. Some people didn't seem to understand that and already saw Berankis winning AO...maybe Berankis is talented but he won't have a sick opponent in each round. A normal Nalby would have trashed in 3 sets.
Happy for Ferru who reaches 2nd week, he's a very nice guy and a tought competitor. Vamos David F

Ferrer is just too good for him. Berankis didn't play that bad, Ferrer is just on another level :shrug:

Oh here we go, now Nalbandian fan's starting the song "about Berankis being trashed if he would have been fit". Reality is Nalbandian was being trashed in three set's, until he thinked to call it a day. Ofcourse you can fantasy about how good Nalbandian could have been in your dream world.
As i said before Berankis is not top 10 material, but he is getting better every game. Reasons why he lost: his first serve was way below his normal and his "unforced errors" was over the top. I know that it's usually the opponents "fault", but he was doing a lot of them in very simple situations.
Ferrero looked really good, i think the main reason why Berankis lost was Ferrero was diving for every ball and was succesfull about every time and Berankis started getting annoyed by that.
