no way is he 5'6. 5'9 Ferrer towered over him. Rochus played top 20 this week.

it's so sad watching Rochus play because it's so clear how great he would have been if taller...

I mean a 6 foot tall Oliver Rochus would be a great champion, it's really too bad. all the talent but the height holds him back.

Ferrer is looking in devastating form, even better than at last year's Auckland and also appears to be moving fantastically. I already was expecting him to go deep in Australia but maybe more eyes will be on him after his great form in winning Auckland for the third time!!

best of luck Oliver, and David: you can beat any player in the world!! show that at the Open in the next weeks!!! :worship: :worship: :worship:

Totally agree Oliver got some of the best talent out there, but he can't fufill it with his height :sobbing:

The choking didn't help either. Still would've been consistent top 20 (and have caused one of the biggest upsets ever and a few other pretty big ones) if he could close out a match

Ironically his height probably has something to do with it. It is just so much easier to serve out a match when you can hit big serves, which is not common when you're 5'4".

Winning Auckland 3 times seems to be Ferrer's proudest achievement so far?:p
So does he get a full year supply of beer?:haha:

Oli is so cute. He's like the guy version of Henin, he speaks like her especially.

Probably those two epic comebacks in '09 and '11 Davis Cup finals ;)

He said Auckland was his favourite tournament, I imagine Barcelona and Valencia won't be too happy to hear that :lol:

If Rochus was around 6'1 or 6'2 he would be a top 10 player easily.

David was by far the best player in the draw, so he was obviously going to win this. Never in doubt, to be honest.
