I think Ferru will win. Should be a little more interesting than the previous two, though... And in a way, that's good, because going from really easy matches to a match against Federer would be too much of a shock...

Ferrer was pushing so bad against Kavcic, he only hit 28 winners and only won 20 out of his 24 points at net.

True. Not only is he more talented and enjoyable to watch, he also at least actually displays some real passion on court. He's the opposite of Ferrer, who plays every match and grinds every point as if tennis were only a job, as if he was still working construction :zzz: It's just utterly boring watching this mug trying to imitate a wall on court, I wonder how he can have any fans (apart from Federer fans who love that he never fails to bring in the lube when he's facing Fed).

Let's not even think about that (Ferrer with a medal); if there's any justice, someone will stop him, ideally Kei tomorrow.

david ferrer is one of the nicest and hardest working players on the tour and in case you haven't noticed you are pretty much the only guy on this forum to show such distaste towards a player who deserves to be where he is right now
the same could be said for juan monaco who you took the liberty of insulting by opening the match thread for his loss to lopez

Ferrer isn't going anywhere. At the age of 30, he is having one of his best seasons ever. He is tied with Fed for the most titles on tour and has made at least the QF of every slam so far this year. Let the pressed haters continue to smack their gums. Pics is letting his tennis do the talking.

Ferrer is actually aggressive for a guy with no real weapons besides consistent groundstrokes. He's a classic defensive baseliner but he dictates the tempo when he can especially against mugs.

Plus he doesn't have the disgusting level of gamesmanship that most of the Spanish pushers have.

It's not exactly a joy to watch but in this era of athletic freaks who barely know who to play the game it's important to have a guy like Ferrer around to separate the real players from the pretenders.

Yep. He is quite aggressive against lower ranked players, where he can dictate terms. The top guns put him on the backfoot and this forces him to play defensive tennis.
I like ferrer for his never-say-die attitude and non-whining nature (unlike nadal, whose gamesmanship is getting worse as he is losing).
