And no, he doesn't do it all the time, but he doesn't do it only when he loses, either. He does it when he's tense, so sometimes it's when he's under pressure and losing, or sometimes, it's when he's winning but playing at his maximum level.

I truly don't think Haas was bothered by his grunts. Anyway, if he had been, he could have said so and ask the umpire to give Ferrer a code violation. Ferrer may be generally respected by other players, but he has never been particularly protected by umpires, so I don't see why Haas would be afraid to complain if he had legitimate grounds for complaint.

If anything, I thought the guy in the audience who was constantly bellowing as if he had been attending a heavy metal gig was far more of a nuisance than Ferrer in terms of noise (and he was doing it during points, too, sometimes).
no, yes, yes, whatever, dunno, yes, no, no idea.

The point is - ugliest final in the world (Futures and senior leagues included) can be produced only if one of the players is Ferrer.

And the winners theory goes to pieces as well.

Just awful, awful, awful

also, before you do go and look. First i want you to make sure that the person you find has played the big 4 at least as many times as ferrer has or someone within at least 5 games of that. If you cant then dont bother because the comparison wont be fair
Seriously?

Okay.

Ferrer's 7/37 = 19% of total games

Even after Murray’s gifts today, he bumps up to 23/68.

23/68 = 34% of total games

Del Potro: Beat two of them just last week.

Del Potro's 56/110 = 51% of total games

"But Del Potro hasn't made it to them in slams!!!111"

Okay.

Tsonga: Took two sets off of Federer at the AO. Ferrer's never taken sets off of Fed on any level in 13 (?) tries.

Tsonga's 31/70 = 44% of total games

"But Tsonga hasn't beaten one of them either!!!11"

Okay.

Berdych: Took a set off of Djokovic in AO; beat Federer in Dubai, which Ferrer thus far can only dream of doing.

Berdych's 45/109 = 41% of total games

I'm not even sure why you posed this challenge, mate.

His grunt is at the moment of Haas' contact with the ball, which imho is partially the reason for him to shank it.

From there on the highlight doesn't reflect the real situation, they switch too fast an there's barely anything on the second and first half of third sets.

You can see though how there is no grunting at all when the guy is leading 4-3, 5-3 etc.

He grunts only when he needs to. Just despicable.

The second set winning point is describing perfectly what was happening for half the match, but isn't on the highlight.

Haas isn't much of an attacking grinder, but his fanatics sure personally attack anyone mentioned his failure on grass & indoor courts. Only Fed was allowed to beat him, yet wasn't Fed depending on Haas' hesitation at the 2009 French Open?

Being scaaaaared won't help Haas on what he perceives as very
slow courts. Fed made a living out of upsetting some shaking chihuahuas who listened to lies.

Haas had a fantastic run here in Miami.
As a near-to-35-year old, it was all too expected that at a certain point, Haas would run out of fuel. No surprise that it happened against Mr. Energy Bunny, aka, Ferrer (and congratulations for that David!).
Still, an awesome result for Haas, and he's got NOTHING to be ashamed about, rather the contrary.

Now please David, take the title tomorrow.

It's just like the argument of the H2H between Federer and Nadal being skewed in Nadal's favor because of clay. Well, if you eliminate all of their clay matches, they are tied at 7 wins each. And then the "everything thing is considered" argument comes out: match-up, he's old, Nadal cheated, top spin, moon balling, etc.

The argument was that the COURTS are to blame. And when the courts are NOT to blame, it's something else. And when THAT'S not to blame, it's something else. And so on and so forth.

Furthermore if we replayed this match but changed it to indoor carpet Haas would have probably won this in straight sets on form.

It's so unfair when the COURTS keep getting blamed when Player X loses/wins.

Haas thought you'd beat David this time.

Well congrats to David and his fans.
