I don’t really know what happened today. I’m still not sure why Ferrer isn’t playing to his full potential?
I’ll very quickly write about the match. Stan started off dominating in the first set. The Spaniard quite simply couldn’t match his opponents play. In the second set Ferrer was forced to play better. When Ferrer was serving *4-4 at deuce, Wawrinka changed the match in his favor when he hit a clever backhand winner at the net. Moments later the Swiss had 3 match points-he only needed one. (David hit the ball out.)
“Stan played a great match…Playing any ATP World Tour final is important. I want to be positive and look forward.”-D.F.
So what do you guys feel? Do you think Ferrer is on a decline in his career this season? Or do you think he is still recovering from injuries? Or is he tired from 2012 and is age coming into play for him? I know he’s trying to stay positive for the rest of the season, and that’s the most important thing he can do. I hope he goes into this week putting his heart and soul on the courts. He’s playing in Spain on his preferred surface so that should be somewhat of a comfort. However you might call it unfortunate because he has a tough draw. If Ferrer does make it to the quarters, he’ll most likely face Rafael Nadal.
I hope you guys have a good start to the week. Since there is a masters tournament going on, I’ll try to regularly keep the site updated.
P.S. I know it’s a big week for Fernando-being a Madridista- so I’m glad to see him pass first round. 🙂
