Default Back to the Clay...........Cheering for David in Båstad, Stuttgart and Umag

OK - I know I'm a little early - but I'm so bored with all this green, slippery, grass stuff

So - I'm glad to say that in 5 days time, David will be back on the clay - playing first in the beautiful Swedish seaside town of Båstad, then in Stuttgart (one of my favourite tournaments of the year), and finally Umag on the gorgeous Adriatic coast in Croatia.

I will be there to cheer him on in Stuttgart (along with Eléa), and I may possibly be going to Umag too - though that is not definate yet.

So GOOD LUCK David

Juega el partido inaugural ante Verdasco




David Ferrer llega a Huelva avalado por su excelente trayectoria en la hierba de Wimbledon, donde ha llegado a los octavos de final (fue eliminado el pasado lunes por el australiano Hewitt). No séra la primera presencia del jugador en Huelva, aunque no ha llegado a ganar la Copa del Rey. Ferrer será el encargado de disputar el partido inagural del torneo (mañana jueves, 20.00 horas) enfrentándose a Fernando Verdasco. Por el momento, los enfrentamientos entre ambos dentro de la ATP favorecen al valenciano por dos victorias a una. El primer duelo Ferrer-Verdasco tuvo lugar en los treintaidosavos de final en Chennai (India) en 2004 y sobre pista rápida, saliendo vencedor Ferrer por 1-6/7-5/6-0. El único triunfo del madrileño Verdasco se produjo en cuartos de final en Valencia en 2004 (6-2/6-3) sobre tierra batida. Por último, Ferrer y Verdasco se vieron las caras el año pasado en Barcelona, en primera ronda, con saldo favorable para el valenciano por 6-3/6-4, también sobre arcilla. Ahora, en Huelva, volverán a verse las caras.


If I'm correct Fer and David will open the Copa del Rey in Huelva

Hooray for clay.

And I don't think you are early with this thread, I bet David has started his preparations before you.

Sorry if I'm wrong or this was already posted.. or posted in a wrong thread.

Hi Reiko

You are not a stranger here, we know you from the lovely pictures you took of our boy.

Thanks for the link. I went to the page and it does seems like they will be airing the Copa del Rey semis and final. There mediaplayer doesn't work for me "yet" but I have now officially dedicated my life to getting this coverage.

Thanks again for the link and ..... WELCOME to the wacky world of David Ferrer fans.

Looks like Ferrer and Coria play the final. Well done!



Quote:
David Ferrer y Guillermo Coria jugarán esta tarde la gran final
El valenciano superó a Fernando Verdasco en la primera semifinal por 7-6 (7-5) y 6-1; mientras que en la segunda el argentino se deshizo del toledano Feliciano López por un doble 6-3

J. ÁLVAREZ D. M./R. VILLALBA
@ Envíe esta noticia a un amigo

huelva. David Ferrer y Guillermo Coria jugarán esta tarde (20.15 horas) la gran final de la LXXXI edición de la Copa del Rey, que se celebra en las instalaciones del Real Club Recreativo de Tenis de Huelva. Ayer se cumplieron los pronósticos en las semifinales, por lo que el valenciano y el argentino disputarán una final inédita en el clásico torneo veraniego onubense.

Ferrer se impuso a Fernando Verdasco por 7-6 (7-5) y 6-1 en un partido que duró aproximadamente hora y media; mientras que Coria derrotó a Feliciano López por un doble 6-3 en algo más de sesenta minutos.

La ausencia de última hora de Rafael Nadal, que ayer mismo se clasificó para disputar las semifinales de Wimbledon ante el chipriota Marcos Baghdatis, restó público en las gradas. El tenista balear era, sin duda, la gran estrella del cartel del torneo de Huelva. Empresas e instituciones se habían volcado este año con la Copa del Rey y el enorme poder de convocatoria del manacorí auguraba que el aforo de 3.200 localidades se podría completar. Pero ayer se vieron muchas localidades vacías.

El partido entre Ferrer y Verdasco resultó competido durante su primer set. El madrileño rompió el servicio a su rival en el cuarto juego y se colocó con una ventaja apreciable (3-1), aunque el de Jávea, en el juego siguiente le devolvió la moneda a Verdasco dejándole a su adversario el servicio en blanco (3-2). Luego ambos tenistas fueron ganando su saque hasta que se llegó a la muerte súbita. En el tie break una doble falta de Ferrer permitía a Verdasco colocarse con una notable renta (4-1). Parecía que iba a cobrar ventaja. Pero el valenciano templó sus nervios y estuvo más acertado en los compases decisivos para adjudicarse la muerte súbita por 7-5, en 52 minutos de juego. El segundo set tuvo muy poca historia. Verdasco pareció resentirse de las molestias físicas que había arrastrado en su encuentro del pasado lunes en Londres ante el checo Radek Stepanek, que le obligaron a ser atendido por un fisioterapeuta, y opuso muy poca resistencia. Ferrer, en sólo 22 minutos, sumó su segundo set al romperle dos veces el servicio a su contrincante, con lo que accedió a la gran final de hoy, que será televisada por Teleonuba. El segundo encuentro de anoche resultó quizá más competido. En él se enfrentaron dos jugadores con estilos bien distintos. Por un lado Feliciano López, un tenista que basa su juego en el saque y la volea; por otro el argentino Coria, todo un especialista sobre la tierra batida. El suramericano fue de menos a más. Comenzó de forma tímida y quizá se acordó de la lesión en el hombro que le ha tenido apartado de las pistas sin poder disputar los dos últimos torneos del Grand Slam (Roland Garros y Wimbledon), pero poco a poco fue ganando movilidad y supo responder de forma espléndida a los 'cañonazos' del zurdo López. Gracias a su pericia en el resto y a su acierto con las dejadas venció en las dos mangas por idéntico marcador de 6-3 superando también a un público que animó mayoritariamente al español.

According to David's diary - he is preparing to leave for Bastad, and when he is there, he will be taking part in a tennis "clinic" for children. I wish him luck in Sweden
