In light of this year's latest USTA farce, are you rooting for Ferrer to win it all?

I think it would be justice served if Ferrer hung on to beat Nole and then took out Murray in the final. Would be great for the game as well.

Would stick it to the USTA and CBS too. Poetic justice. Win it all, Pics. Shock the fucking world, and make all those suits shit in their pants.

I like both Novak and David, but Nole will have many more chances to win this tournament. He's been to semis or better for the last 6 years; clearly he's comfortable here and likes the court/conditions.

David may not have this opportunity again. Vamos Ferru! :cheerleader:

That's all fine and dandy but Ferrer can't beat both Novak and Andy, if he wins tomorrow he'll be routined by Murray. Everything is going in Murray's way, if he doesn't win it on monday, he is incompetent mug, he'll never get better chance to win. Federer out, Nadal didn't play, Berdych disadvantaged by windy conditions, Novak with big schedule problems, tired for final. Ferrer tired aswell, never been in a final. Slam Dunk for Murray.

This thing is bigger than petty tardism and #1 stats. Fed has enough records. Djokovic has many years left to win slams. Murray the same. This may be Ferrer's last, best chance. I hope David regroups and comes out playing just as well tomorrow.

Um, yes there would definitely be justice served if Ferrer won. USTA clearly wants Nole-Murray final, Ferrer winning would be a nice middle finger to them.

Plus, I am about the same size as Ferrer, 5'9'', 160 pounds, and him winning would be great for all players under 6 foot tall, to give belief that, yes, it is possible in this era to win if you aren't 6'2''.

I totally get where JG and others are coming from. Its obvious USTA would have liked Federer/Murray vs Djokovic final, and would have been pretty pissed if it was a Berdych vs Ferrer enounter, and because they are so obvious it does make u a bit mad.

But obviously while murray is still in a tournamnet i will be behind him 100000%, If Ferrer were to win though I'd be toally gutted in a way but i'd be happy for him because he is such a pro he is so lovely and sweet shows soo much respect for everybody and fights for everything - nothing wrong with having a GS winner like Ferrer.

I was rooting for Ferrer as soon as the semis were set. He is 30 and this is probably going to be his last chance to win a slam.
He was fucking robbed today, and I think winning it all would shove this organization right up the USTA's ass.

Djokovic and Murray will have at least 6 more US Opens to split between them. This is Ferrer's chance.

However, given the fact that they now have to play tomorrow (even though the rain has already stopped :mad:) I think Murray will be fresh on Monday and take out whomever makes it through.

Poor david. He finally starts to make shit happen, and then the USTA puts an end to it. All for money.

They've been screwing up for some time now, but I think this year is really the kick in the ass that they needed. This is going to open everybody's eyes and expose the corrupt organization that has been taking place the last few years. Something needs to change.

Furthermore, I may be the first to admit that I don't really care that much about #1 anymore. I only wanted Roger to beat the record of most weeks at #1 and now he has it. He even got his swan song slam at Wimbledon. Everything Fed wins from this point on is just a bonus.

Yes I guess he can get more rest. But what scares me is that he hasn't been playing this well since the beginning of the tournament, so I'm afraid it won't be the same tomorrow!

Anyway, we'll see. I was expecting him to lose in 3 to be honest, and I was expecting the Djoker to wake up any minute... The problem with beginning so well is that it tends to raise the hopes suddenly!

I hope he takes at least that first set and then it will already be some kind of moral victory. Then if he can get more, it would be brilliant.

Why is it so hard for some to believe that Ferrer might actually have fans purely for his own sake? Being a Federer fan first and foremost I'm obviously disappointed he didn't make it this far, but I also like Djokovic and will be rooting for him in the final should he reach there. As for Murray, I'm still not a fan but he's grown in my estimation this year to the point that I wouldn't really mind him winning his first slam here...

Yet out of the remaining three guys, there's no question that I would be the most excited and genuinely pleased if Ferrer won this USO - and not just to stick it to the stupid organizers either :ras: So many people (including even supporters like me) not only underrate him but sometimes write him off when it comes to big matches, especially at slams. I would really love for him to show the world that he is more than 'just' a steady grinder or pusher by winning it all here; that he is, in fact, a worthy champion.

"We play in a grand slam, in such a big tournament like this one, and especially missing the roof, it's something which should be at least be thought about."

I agree with Berdych. I think we should move the US Open and bar US officials from all future events if possible

Murray is simply not my cup of tea but, whereas before I was almost mystified as to what his fans saw in him, now I can acknowledge most of his better qualities myself. His bad habits still grate on me (especially the moping) but he's clearly made an effort of late to overcome them - wish I could say the same for some of my other favourites...

So, I am hoping for Djoker to turn the match around on sunday and win in 3, maximum 4 sets (if he can't salvage the first set), which will leave him not too tired against Mandy who will hopefully lose some match rhythm with an extra day off.

agreed. I've said something along these lines a few days ago. Now that Fed has that record, I would actually be fine with him retiring.

Unlike most people I'm not a Ferrer-fan, really don't like his game. It would however be good for the sport if we were to have a new GS champion for a change.

So if I'd have to choose, it would be Murray, because if Sean Connery jumps the bandwagon, I have to follow :wavey:

This is Murray's to win. God brought a storm in so that Djokovic and Ferrer will have to play Sunday and Monday. Of those two, I think Ferrer could better withstand the physical demands of playing back to back matches. But even his energy reserves will be severely tested.

Boy would I want Ferrer to win a slam before Murray. I want David to win a slam period!

Allez
09-09-2012, 07:09 AM
No. A Ferrer win would be bad business. Murray needs to win this to take tennis to the next level. Beating Nole is for Ferrer what beating Federer is for birdshit. In any case there is no way in hell Nole is letting this get away from him. We can expect him to turn this around thanks to the USTA disgusting decision to halt Ferrer's momentum and let Nole off the hook. To be honest I think Nole would have figured out a way to win even if they had continued playing and probably would not have been in that situation to begin with if they'd played on Armstrong earlier. He probably was just pissed off and I expect him to be fully focused today and get the job done in no more than 4 sets.

I'm afraid Ferrer is not winning anything even if he somehow manages to def. Novak. however, I'm still confident that Novak will find a way to win even being 2 breaks down in the first set. that first set might be gone but Pics still needs to win 2 more sets. I'm not so sure that he can do it but suit yourself. Murray will be fresher for the final, if he doesn't win this he'll never win a GS.

all of this Super Saturday sh!t should go. Build the roof. It's simply not fair to players to play under these conditions. This is the 5th year in a row that the final will be played on Monday. not sure which Monday tho, maybe in November sometimes.

I am rooting for the Djoker because I would hate it if Mandy won USO (which he will if Ferrer wins). So, I am hoping for Djoker to turn the match around on sunday and win in 3, maximum 4 sets (if he can't salvage the first set), which will leave him not too tired against Mandy who will hopefully lose some match rhythm with an extra day off.
Why would Djokovic need any rest to beat a "talentless pusher" like Murray?

I don't get it. Why would a Ferrer victory punish the USTA?

rocketassist explains it well

That.

Would be one in the eye for the cash cow scum as well if an 'unfashionable' guy comes through it.

:cool:

Neither do I. Upsets are good for Tv drama.

Yeah, like I asked before, how would a Ferrer victory lose any money for the wta

Ferrer being in the final may lose viewers (in their eyes anyway, Djokovic being the much bigger star)

BTW this post should underline why CB$ shouldn't have any say in the matter. Greedy bastards.

The answer to both is it wouldn't. This is an idiotic thread that assumes play was stopped yesterday in an attempt to stop Pics from winning the match.

The USTA has embarrassed themselves with this tournament but it's not because they are trying to stop Pics from beating Djokovic. It is for a number of other reasons.

I thought we are all tennis lovers here, so why the hell would anyone want Ferrer to win (not counting Muzza's fans or Spaniards for obvious reasons) when it's clear who will show us a better tennis in the finals.

I just can't believe i just read this, did i actually see someone wrote "Ferrer saved tennis". Only way he could save tennis is to retire so we don't have to see any more of that annoying grinding. I mean it would all be OK if he was ATP no.40, but his 5th place is a big slap in a face for this sport.
