I have to admit Ferrer didn't really register on my radar until this year, specifically at the USO when he defeated Nadal after that 5-set marathon. I couldn't believe his incredible ability to hustle the ball back from anywhere on the court, winners with fantastic angles, and gritty determination. The fact that he's smaller than most top players makes me admire him even more.

He seems like a straight-arrow who just wants do his best and is improving tremendously this year. From what I've read so far, not a bad word has been said about him, either. I'm a total Fed fan, but have also become a Ferrer fan now...so, whoever wins the final is A-OK with me.

If Ferrer wins TMC and becomes a thread to #1 or #2 players of the world, you will hear many bad things about him, especailly in MTF. :lol:

He does seem to be a genuinely good guy with a big heart who's taken the long path to the top and appreciates the moment.

The funny thing is how much credit he receives for supposedly being a hard worker, when he himself would be the first to admit he hates training :lol:

His competitiveness and great speed are his gifts, not necessarily things he has obtained by working exceptionally hard, and gradually he's become an excellent ball striker too.

Yes, he does dislike the training aspect of tennis, but he still puts in the hard yards. Being a hard worker does not necessarily mean enjoying it.

It was a bit of a shame he was too caught up in the moment to play his best today, but he still has experience to gain in big matches.

He's a good guy but I'm sure he forgets to feed his cat sometimes or is rude to his mother from time to time. No, he is Spanish they adore there mother, so forget the lather.:p

:lol: With cat loving fans like you and me he wouldn't dare do the former either! And to be honest he is a pretty good all-round, nice guy. Writes regularly on his official website, respects his fans, been loyal to the same coach for years, been with the same girlfriend from his home town for years, adores his family :) Pretty good tennis player too :)

:lol: Sorry, not everything here is about Federer.

You missed the drama on MTF during the good old days of Hewitt bashing and Roddick bashing. The rivalry between Agassi and Sampras "fans". That was before Federer winning everything.

He does seem like a very likable guy, he never fails to smile during interviews, he seems quite humble and grounded and that's always nice.

One thing that I like about him is that he seems to really appreciate things and his accomplishments and fans. I love that he interacts so much with his fans on his website. Sweetie seems to be the right word.

It's admirable that he is trying to speak English more, even though he struggles with it. He seems like a good guy hasn't moved too far away from his roots and hasn't forgotten where he has come from.
