I expect Ferrer to win this match in under an hour.
Yep, you are a true fan ark
You do from me - it's called having some class. Kudos to you.
Cillic is playing well - I think he has a decent chance tomorrow, despite the H2H - although Murray probably played the best he's played since the AO in his match against Seppi.
Hopefully Murray wins this.
So far so good. Let’s see what the wind has in store for Ferrer today.
I think it can be a close match it's obviously a good match up for Murray as head to head shows 7-1 but they have had some great matches in the past I kind of feel Murray's comeback against Cilic at the Open really kickstarted his tournament and gave him a real sense he could win from any position, who knows it may have helped in the final when Novak came back and made it 2 sets all Murray still was not to be denied!
Ferrer 1st serve %: 23%
he was beaten by a superior player who won the key points... it wasn't a repeat of his aussie open performance...
That's not always true. He did win Shanghai in 2011 to get to #3.
Does anybody else notice that Ferrer is just crushing the ball on his forehand? He's going for a lot more than he normally does.
That's because the author of that article failed 1st grade arithmetic. He said it hasn't happened in 30 years but then said it happened in 1973! Um...that would be 40 years ago!
To quote Ferrer "what f u c k i n g are you doing? What f u c k i n g are you doing"??
Ferrer didn't wake up yet. Hilarious that Melzer might win a set.
Melzer on fire! Dude is fun to watch when he's on, so much variety and a killing forehand. Takes the ball nice and early too.
It's not easy beating Ferrer, even when he's having a bad day
This. Only reason Melzer is even in the set is because Ferrer is playing bad.
Still think Ferrer will take this in 3 love Melzers shot making though
My brother is laughing he just called me and said this guy Melzer isn't even a professional player.
damnn.. he can NOT afford to miss that smash..
So embarrassing to lose a set to this guy.
Yeah! Good job by still reeling that game in.
For Haas this would be a very good draw if Melzer finishes this and he beats Simon later!
Just shake it off and start over Ferrer.
Still can't see Melzer winning the whole thing. Oh well, I've watched enough tennis lately, back to studying now.
You do know Melzer has been in the top 10 and made the SFs of the French Open in 2010, right? Beating Djokovic in a 5 setter on the way?
He also has never made the semifinals of a masters tournament.
Melzer, Melzer, Alka-Seltzer!
I still can't see him beating Ferrer, even after taking the first set.
untrue and unfair. Melzer is earning his crust with some big hitting too
What happened with Nole?
Ferrer has been testy this week.
It's just Bob. Who cares.
This match is horrible.
Jurgen Melzer made the SF of Monte Carlo 2011 (lost to David Ferrer in the SF after beating roger federer in the QF in STRAIGHT sets).
LOL cool story brah.
Is anyone else glad to see Melzer doing better at a tournament again? It's been a good year or so since I've seen him go deep in a tourny but I like his style of play, clean forehand and back....
You are incorrect. I trust the announcers over you.
Zey are most efficient, ja?
I think I did hear the announcers say that this was Melzer's first QF in a Masters but I checked on Wikipedia and it says indeed that Melzer has made the SF in MC 2011. Don't know which side is wrong though
Amazing rally just now!
Excellent. My cunning plan smoked you out.
On to Monte Carlo Bob?
This is the Melzer I know.
Ferrer gets the bagel. Game set aaaaaaand match. So any other matches from miami on tonight?
Did you bet on Simon to beat Haas?
Tommy was good, Novak was sh^t.
Good effort from Ferrer
Genau, die gute deutsche Effizienz - to my delight. Sadly, Kohlschreiber is mugging around a bit atm.
I still want Murray to win the title, but I would be genuinely happy for Tommy as well. He still has a tough road ahead of him, to even get to the final though. I think Ferrer will probably get through from that half. I also feel that Murray could very well lose to either Cilic or Berdych. His form hasn't been too convincing so far and Berdych is generally a bad match-up for him, probably the worst in the top 10.
Melzer played Ferrer in MC 2011. Maybe they meant first hard court semi?
No, betting large on Haas.
I think Simon will beat Haas unfortunately.
