Daveed Ferrer VS Stan the Man 2013 Buenos Aires Final
 
Not gonna bother putting a poll because match about to start. What do you think? I hope for Stan in 2 but realistically I see Daveed in 3.

Stan breaks for 3-1. :)

0-30 on his serve now though...

Ferrer breaks back. 3-2

Geology_Rocks! 02-24-2013 09:29 AM

And he gives it back...

Boy this thread died a painful death when Ferrer blitzed Stan, haha.

5-4 Ferrer, serving for set

Onehandedbackhand 02-24-2013 09:58 AM

6-4 first set

I want Stan to win, but I don't mind if David does as he'll protect his ranking lead over Nadal. I want Nadal to go into the French and Wimbledon as #5, as it'll mix things up :twisted:

Backhand and a half by Wawa.

He will anyway. Too far back.

Yeah you're right, I'm just playing it safe.

I expect him to drop to #6 after the French, from not winning it... but then gain for the rest of the year and get back to #4, maybe #3.

Anyway, I can't watch this match, how are they both playing?

Onehandedbackhand 02-24-2013 10:27 AM

Ferrer the usual...absolutely relentless, but makes things harder on himself than he should. Always going for three more shots than necessary.

Stan isn't playing bad at all, but a lot of missed chances. Backhand looks sweet.

Thank goodness Stan didn't choke away a lead in a set for a 3rd time. He holds and we're going to a decider.

Lots of bad calls from the linesman though. Ferrer seems annoyed about the times he has to rub off the marks. (HOW MANY TIMES?!)

Wawrinka is up a break (1-0) in the third set. Then I start watching and he barely wins a point. What's going on here?

Seems like Stan is still prone to mental breakdowns.

Onehandedbackhand 02-24-2013 10:56 AM

Give Stan this...his backhand is SICK!

Onehandedbackhand 02-24-2013 11:02 AM

And a breadstick for Ferrer in the third. That's title #20.

Here's my question. Do any of these other players actually do their homework at ALL? I mean the top players in the world just pound Ferru mercilessly down lines, take chances, move him all over the place, then put him away. Everybody else just hits with the guy. What do they think, that they are the one that's actually going to wear the guy out? That they'll be the ones that make him go impatient?

I mean, let's be real...we made fun of Simon and Monfils' painfully boring 70 hit rally, but that's nothing more than a crosscourt warmup for Ferru. No one else takes chances with the guy at all, or at least not consistently.

Congrats to Ferrer on his successful title defense and his 20th ATP title overall. He's now part of a rather exclusive club of current players with 20+ titles:
1- Federer: 76
2- Nadal: 51
3- Djokovic: 35
4- Roddick: 32
5- Hewitt: 28
6- Murray: 25
7- Davydenko: 21
8- Ferrer: 20


The next player to reach 20 should be Delpo (he currently has 14)

Hitman 02-24-2013 11:22 AM

David is rock solid as always. Gotta admire his mental and physical application into every match.

He's retired. So the group consists of seven.
