I think not, with Isner gone no one can stop Ferrer in this draw. Murray halfinjured and Gasquet a matchup written in the stars. Mathieu, Granollers and Youzhny not good enought to even pull up an upset in my opinion. What else, Giraldo?

Ferrer usually handles lesser claycourt specialists with ease.

Ferrer-Nadal SF might be better than most people expect, Ferrer is one of the few players who can hang in there with Nadal during baseline rallies but Nadal's mental strength usually decides the outcome.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

Yes, but 1)they havent played each other for 3 years and Youzhny has declined in this period while Ferrer stays the same and 2)Ferrer won easily their only match on clay.

Anyway, anything is possible with Ferrer in RG. He lost to Stepanek some years ago which didnt make much sense.

Don't forget that Murray was also injured last French Open and he still reached the semis. Though he did have help from some choking by his opponents.

Gasquet is most likely, but Ferrer beat him pretty handily at AO this year.

Default Re: Can anyone stop Ferrer from reaching his first RG SF this year?

His cakewalk draw should unfortunately get him to the quarter-finals, Youznhy and Granollers/Jaziri/Mathieu aren't exactly clay court prodigies or even anything resembling a top player.

If this comes to pass, Murray will take him out in the quarters provided he's minimally healthy and gets there. I know Murray isn't good on clay and that he seems half-injured, but I just can't see a player of Murray's caliber lose in a best-of-five match at a Slam to Ferrer if he's minimally healthy. If Murray does harbour hopes of winning a Slam some day, he must win matches like that.

If Murray is indeed seriously injured, then I guess Gasquet would be the best bet to stop him, in which case Ferrer in the semis would be a very likely scenario.

Ferrer is 3-0 against Murray on clay, also this year is Murray's worst claycourt season since 4 years ago.

But they never played at Roland Garros. In a best-of-five Grand Slam match, one seriously has to fancy Murray, even if it's on clay, assuming that he is healthy enough to get to the QF in the first place.

It'd be quite bad for Murray to lose a Slam match to a player that is, in many ways, an inferior version of Murray himself. That said, if Murray does crash and burn it's hard to see anyone stop Ferrer before SFs.
