LOL! It is very possible.
Nadal and Djokovic would be....they out grind Ferrer easily.
Nishikori doesn't look up to it today.
No, they out-weapon him. Same fitness with more weapons.
20 UEs Nishikori
But they're on drugs and ferrer smokes cigars.
Seriously he can stay with them despite having to cover more court.
He was sharp - until he blew all the break pts in the 1st two Ferrer serve games. Then he got broken and started looking defeated.
He looks so tired out there already. Commentators are wrong quite often but, in this case they are right on about kei's game. He needs to play more defense and get fitter. the fatigue is really affecting the way he plays.
If he improves his stamina sky's the limit.
0 for 6 on the BPs.
The tape on the right wrist will completely turn the match. (/sarcasm)
Basically it's over.
Wow. This had such a hopeful start.
Whoever said a few pages back 'this is the separator between the top 5 and the rest' really nailed it.
I wonder if it's very very hot again there today.
I'm also wondering if he slipped when going for that shot late at the end of the first set, and since Nishi was already nursing an injury ...
Miserable performance from Nish. Fitness, the knee, and/or the knowledge that Ferrer is content to rally all day in scorching heat...
I think it's a combination of all three.
Hitting flat and finding the net everytime he hits anywhere but over the center of the net.
Nishikori has been slipping and limping. he's knee is screwed. Not a good sign for what will certainly be along match.
anyone know what ankle brace/support Kei uses? I need to get new ones and want to try different models.
Nishikori has ZILCH left.
6 straight games for Ferrer now.
Wow this is pretty disappointing
It doesn't look great, but if he's risking further injury to the knee ...
Make that 7.
This. Not a good idea, imo. I know the boys hate to retire, say it's disrespectful to the opponent, but ...
Next match, please...
David Ferrer is the Rocky Marciano of the tour. Not the least bit pretty...just punches you and punches you till you say uncle.
I think he's very pretty. He gets prettier ever year.
But then, I'm a girl who's always thought the Spaniards lovely.
That's the only pretty that you can link him to
Dang if that tweener was in, that would've been sweet lol
Nishi has no punch on his groundies at all.
I think he has elegant form too.
I mean, not as elegant as Juanquí, but nobody is (except Roger).
I mean, love-40 to deuce just now ...?
Very disappointing match from Kei.
Hey, I'm a Ferrer fan, but I'm honest. His game is a solid but unspectacular everything, sick return game, and beat you to death.
It works though.
This is going to be an hour and 45 minutes none of us are getting back.
He doesn't look injured just tired and unfocused.
What about all the victims of that Kvitova/Robson match?
Nishi breaks :O
Kei breaks back!
Still has the fight in him, knee injury or no knee injury.
Yeah, we should have a telethon. Of course they should have known. It's still the WTA.
Break, Nishikori. Woo!
It's a brain injury.
Okay, what did you guys feed Nishikori?
This is just pathetic stuff, and this guy is being called a future #1 ? Is he injured or what, I just started watching.
In fairness, pretty much anyone and everyone on the tour has been called a "future #1" by commentators at some point in time.
Ferrer is like a machine...dang
knee is busted. i think the ankle brace is just precautionary. He'll fight as long s he's on the court.
expect some good points from him regardless of the outcome.
Yes, he's injured.
(Perhaps if you just started watching, perhaps to skim the thread first before you jump in and start insulting the players right away ...? :-? )
not taking anything from Ferrer. He's solid. Like a machine. Definitely earned his ranking/seed.
Geez! This match is cross-training to Daveed.
After this match, Ferrer will do 200 push-ups so he can break a sweat.
I'm thrilled he got the chance to be seeded 4th. I feel like he's trying to make the absolute most of it.
Unhappy it was at Rafa's expense, but what can you do ...?
I've read about his training program. It's ... pretty ridiculous.
