Good luck to these guys! 😀
Our boys are really doing well in Wimbledon. That too on a surface that Spaniards aren’t known for doing well on. Fer and Ferru both are proving that wrong. Heck the two did better than Rafa! 🙂
Ferru played Dodig and won today 6-7(3) 7-6(6) 6-1 6-1. Btw, Ferru showed up a lil late on court? Anyone know why? Even though he did win, he’s still look a teeny bit rusty in the beginning. (I do want to give credit to the Croat for playing well the first two sets!)
Next up for Ferrer is Del Potro. That is a yikes match up. I say this because of the dynamic aura that the Argentinean carries around [himself] on court. I like the guy! I know he’s come back a long way since his injury. Not to say this year he was quite ill; so in that regards to Del Potro has been playing well. They met up last Wimbledon here and the Spaniard had won quite easily in straight sets. *I do think that Ferrer played better at this tournament last year- but at the same time I think he’ll win tomorrow. (Maybe in 5 sets!)Props to Fernando Verdasco. With no meanness intended I really didn’t think he’d get this far. It is his first time into the quarterfinals. The last couple of years his ranking has slipped from the top ten to out of the top fifty. His progress here will help him with his confidence and gain ranking points. He’s going to have the daunting task of playing Andy Murray. In all honesty it’s going to be hard for Fer to beat the Scot. The crowd will be behind Andy who btw hasn’t even dropped a set as of yet! The only thing I can think that Fer can do is try to consistently use his blasting forehand to hit winners. If there is a miraculous break chance opportunity then Fer better convert!
