Ferrer will have time to go to south America and prepare for Buenos-Aires and Acapulco where he has many points to "defend".

don't know why he entered Rotterdam :shrug:

Ferrer can be really disappointing at times.

Champion number 1

Nice win for Niemenen as for Ferrer he will probably be mentally drained for a few weeks.

Do you know anyone what is that for surface? i can´t find it anywhere on internet, but it looks pretty fast, i hope all indorr tournaments would be faster than most outdoor HC- PAris-Bercy last year was fast, in 2009 it was horrible slow, Rotterdam loooks good, but Zagreb is slow- carpet is not anymore but those indoor hard events should be minimum medium to fast HC i think

That's what I'm thinkin. Maybe a Krajicek appearance fee?

Maybe he is getting one of his 500 tournaments out of the way.

It's Decoturf. Possibly quicker than last year though - they changed balls this year, but that doesn't explain it, so may have upped to a faster Decoturf variant.

Then again, sometimes tournaments change surfaces and don't tell anyone.

It looks really different than Decoturf, but maybe it is just in other color. I know that Decoturf is also in Shanghai and Beijing but not that it is also installed in indoor arena.

I had thought of that, but Ferrer doesn't have this kind of problems : he usually plays many of them, at least Acapulco, Monte-Carlo, Barcelona and Valencia, and even Hamburg and Beijing in recent years.

There are different Deco products: Beijing is the slowest, Shanghai middling. Those two also use kinda slow balls.

Indoor temporary ones: yeah, might vary, since it's only built for the event. There aren't any other indoor Decoturf courts to compare with.

Very impressive result for Jarkko, but not a surprising one. Pretty quick indoor surface, and also Jarkko has the type of game to give David trouble. This is probably best for David as now he can head to Buenos Aires earlier and get some training in on clay.

Ferrer won Valencia (indoors) at the end of last year.
