Better, fitter and more talented player won, great for the sport. Should've been 6-1 6-1, though, but you can't have everything.

So much about Nishikori being a bad match up for David, 13 games won by the Fragile Boy in the last 5 sets played between the two.
Congrats David :worship:

Great result. Still a lot less than Brilliant from Ferrer, but it was a much better performance than in the previous round. Some flashes of the 2012 Ferrer forehand as well, great to see :bounce:

Pretty much ensures a semi here, Melzer shouldn't be a problem.

I keep hearing that Nshikori is meant to be some sort of marksman-like aggressor but every time I watch him, all he does is push the ball into play, and occasionally changes the direction of the rally.

Ferrer, is just three or four levels above Nishikori in pretty much all areas of the game. They have the same strengths and weaknesses, but Ferrer is just better. Nothing to see here.

Yeah cause Nole vs Kei would have drawn huge crowds and would certainly have been a breathtaking match :rolleyes:


I've just come home and couldn't watch. Was Ferru any better? I'm more interested in seeing whether he can play properly again, than in seeing him beat Nishikori if Nishikori played badly.

We have something to hold on to, although that most probably won't matter against Djokovic in the SF.

He improved as the match went on, better than some of the stuff he's played in 2013 but still a long way from 2011-12 form.

Pretty dull match, Ferrer doing his usual thing and Kei moving poorly and didn't get much power in his FH.

Pretty much. Very flat performance from Kei here, kind of disappointing. Still, looking at his results/performances this year overall so far compared to years past, he seems to have got better at beating lower ranked players with some ease, but worse at showing up against top 10 players. He at least lived up to his seeding in every event bar IW (where he missed his seeding by one match), but his performances vs top 10 players have been meh. In 2011 and 2012, he built his ranking through some odd good runs that involved beating the likes of Tsonga, Berdych, Ferrer, even Djokovic, and then lost early at a ton of events... I suppose this is a better way to get a slightly better ranking, but hopefully he can combine the two soon. He has a month off before his next event now, hope he uses it well to get in better shape and tackle whatever physical issues are making play with tapes on his knee and ankle since Australia.

As for Ferrer, well glad your boy is around to put an end to this nonsense again.

I wonder if Lenders would do a 180º switch on his Kei worshiping ala Sapeod with Delpo if results don't start getting better :lol:

Of course, I make a point of not supporting anyone without a Slam title when they reach the age of 25, so Kei has less than two years to deliver :rolleyes:

I was clearly joking, but if you do it, would be hilarious nevertheless :lol: since it's somehow clear you appreciate his game and just enjoy watching him play + the usual trolling with the Ferrer matchups, should be fine.

just don't set the bar of expectations for him too high or you're in for even more disappointments ;)

Watched some of his matches from Tokyo past year. That was super hitting but apart from that occation I sort of agree.

Expectations aren't high at all. In fact from all players I support Kei is the only one I fear will lose pretty much any match he plays no matter the opponent's rank due to his fragility. Of course ideally I'd like him to fully fulfill his potential and get great results, but I've long accepted that whatever he manages to do it's fine.

And expectations/disappointments were never an issue, of all active players I support closely Delpo is the only one who has a Slam and he's not exactly someone you want to follow closely if you're only in it for the success (as Sapeod's 180º shows) for a lot of reasons, one of them being that his stubborness to play through injury all the time makes for very painful/stressful viewing even when he's winning. So yeah, no Sapeod heel turn, I supported Ancic during his mono years so I doubt any set of bad results/poor health can make me stop supporting Kei :lol:

Actually still below par compared to his 2012 form.

Is he now?

He made a run in Doha before getting crushed by a superior Davy, who peaks for that shit. He then met his ranking in AO, only to be crushed by a clearly superior Djokovic. He went deep in Acapulco, but happened to be crushed by a clearly superior Nadal. And finally, he was batted around by Anderson last wee.

In between these events, he won Auckland as expected, pulling off an impressive win against the only top 50 player he faced in Kohlschreiber. And he picked on the carcasses of Buenos Aires, pulling off an impressive win against the only top 40 guy he faced in Wawrinka.

Am I missing something here when, by this time last year, he had been embarrassed by Djokovic twice, beat every low-ranked, underwhelming player under the sun in Auckland, BA, et al., suffered a loss to then-#50 Istomin @ IW, and fortunately had no Nadal to contend with in Acapulco?

The script has been almost the exact same. Face it, his ceiling is not that high.

Well, in terms of result, it isn't much different from last year. But in terms of tennis... I'm sorry but you've got to be blind to see no difference.
It's not his results so far that are worrying, it's rather that if he plays like this all year, sooner or later the difference will also be seen in the results.
This, and the fact that I don't particularly enjoy watching him pile up tons of UEs.

As expected from Ferrer's #1 apologist.

Please tell me then, in your expert analysis, where lies the difference in form between the two destructions?

3T7i-suFV78
f-L0-rZrMrE

The only difference is that Ferrer in '13 attempts to play hyper-aggressive against top players, which is a strategy he adopted (against Novak at least) since Miami of last year. That's what has resulted in the dozens of errors he produced in this years' matches, which are graciously left out of the highlights above. Essentially, he's adopted a new way to lose.

Also, any physical deterioration he may be experiencing is equally expected considering how much his game relies on his legs, aggressive or defensive.
