That was absolutely horrific. Fognini will destroy this Ferrer. Second set had 6 straight breaks.

Not impressed. Out of the 4 possible semifinalists (Ferrer, Klizan, Nishikori, Fog), Ferrer is playing the worst tennis this week. By far actually. Very vulnerable. This felt like some random R1 match at 250. Kohli is obviously having a very disappointing season and this match only confirmed that. If peak Kohli appeared, match was there for taking.

That's quite bad then. I thought him down a double break to Ymer was bad stuff. That said it's usual for Ferrer to drop serve in streaks, and then break back right after, like some of those Simon matches. But he's managed to avoid Nadal luckily enough

Ferrer/Nishikori final would be ideal.

The truth is, this match was all about the angles.

Kohlsha started off bad, giving Ferrer all the angles he likes. But Ferrer was doing well to fend off any opposition and ensure he could actually attack those angles, whether it was by outspinning Kohlsha or by flatting it out and going for the lines.

However, as the match went on, Ferrer's angles became less sharp, and Kohlsha was feeding him pace, and even coming to the net, using the slice, anything to sort of fend of Ferrer's heavy spin, but at the end of the day, Ferrer has no motivation to get better at the net, and he lacks confidence there, so this game was easy for Kohlsha, who sometimes even used dropshots to force Ferrer to face his weakness.

However, the difference is Ferrer has enough gears in his game to beat Kohlsha, and that is probably his greatest asset in his game. Please, Ferrer, try and hit the ball heavier and force opponents to give you the angles you love. :yeah:
