Lol @ Ferrer being "too good". Kei beat him in a major as a youth!
One match 5 years ago means anything?

It fully depends on Kei's health. If he is fully fit, he wins this match as he's the far better player: you can even expect bakery products ala Olympic match. If he's not, anything can happen; so far, he got an MTO in every match and has been having his knee taped so I fear for the worst.
Let's hope it's unfounded fears though, it'd be horrendous for the game if a pushing vulture like Ferrer advanced through the draw at the expense of a young exciting player, not to mention a talented shotmaker, like Kei.
Yes, it does, because Kei was a fecking teen, and Ferrer had already established himself as a top player, even (and perhaps particularly) on hards. Would you rather me cite their recent Olympic encounter?
To suggest that Ferrer's simply too good is fanaticism; it's ignorant of multiple things, not in the least bit the fact that his opponent has beat him in a hc major before.
Ferrer is a top player, no doubt, but you guys are ascribing him an aura that he hasn't yet earned.
