Ferrer's game is built around grinding. But once someone like Djokovic prevents him from doing that, the end result is obvious.
Now, whilst I don't always agree with everything Wilander says. I do agree with him, when he said that regardless of the outcome, in a situation like Ferrer is in, you must play the game you NEED to play to be competitive, and not the game that you WANT to play to be competitive.
Ferrer played the way he WANTED to, not the way he NEEDED to.
