Anyone else feel Ferrer is just due one?? A case of winning once every 10 times and tomorrow will be that day!

I'd have rathered Murray.
He got one in Australia 2011, when he got lucky that Nadal tweaked his leg and couldn't move as well. That was Ferrer's chance.

I think Nadal takes this one tomorrow in 3 or 4 sets.

This could be a looooong match.

Ferrer for the big upset!

Okay, reality it will be the usual winner.

If Ferrer is to win, he needs to hit out-right, balls to the wall winners. Even then, David needs to play his best, Nadal needs to make mistakes

Any rally over 8-9 shots favors Nadal and ultimately the match.

Nadal in 4: 7-5,5-7,6-4,6-0 in a 4 hour+ match. First two sets are three hours, the third set 1 hour. The last set is 20 min.

It's very windy and Fed played great at IW in those kind of conditions. It might be easier for him to adapt than for Djokovic.

Players are out on court. Daveed and umpires waiting at the net as Raphla takes his sweet time and then sprints across.

Anyone having any luck with the live video from the Tennis Channel website?

I swear everytime they play on clay the match looks exactly the same. Ferrer starting aggressive and looking better, Nadal being passive, Ferrer to fight all first set then get worn down.

Tickets are sold to corporations who don't really use them and hence all the vacant seats at the front and the filled ones at the top.

So there's nowhere to watch this match online? ESPN can carry the women's semi's on espn3.com but I can't watch the men's semis? This is pathetic and why I hate split tv coverage of an event.

Yet another BP for Daveed that goes abegging. Poor thinking from Daveed when he had a play on that short ball. Story of their clay matches.

Holmes: And that breakpoint sums up why Ferrer will not win. An easy put away, more than once, and cannot take it.

Ludicrous.
