Yeah but I doubt he will play like this against them. It is not like he is playing that bad as you are claiming anyway. Ferrer is a very good player. There is a reason why is ranked 5th in the world.
Djokovic was hardly impressive against Tsonga either.

Also, found this on another forum trying to explain if/how people can make it through to the semi finals...

Quote:
Maybe this is easier to understand

Nole will be 1st if...

- he beats Berdych, OR
- he loses to Berdych in 3, and Murray beats Tsonga

Nole will be 2nd if...

- he loses to Berdych and Tsonga beats Murray, OR
- he loses to Berdych in straights, and Murray beats Tsonga in 3

Nole will qualify for the semis in all circumstances except Berdych in straights, Murray in straights

Murray will be 1st if...

- He beats Tsonga in straights and Berdych beats Nole in straights

Murray will be 2nd if...

- he beats Tsonga, and Nole wins at least 1 set against Berdych, OR
- he loses to Tsonga in 3 and Nole beats Berdych

Murray will qualify for the semis with...

- a win in straights, OR
- a win in 3 and at least 1 set for Nole, OR
- a win for Nole and at least 1 set for Murray

Berdych will finish 1st if...

- he beats Nole as Tsonga beats Murray, OR
- he beats Nole in straights, and Murray beats Tsonga in 3

Berdych will finish 2nd if...

- he beats Nole in straights and Murray beats Tsonga in straights, OR
- he loses to Nole in 3, and Tsonga beats Murray in straights

Berdych will qualify for the semis if...

- he beats Nole in straights, OR
- he wins and Tsonga wins, OR
- he loses in 3 and Tsonga wins in straights

Tsonga cannot finish 1st

Tsonga will finish 2nd if...

- he beats Murray in straights, and Nole beats Berych in straights

This is the only possibility for Tsonga to make the semis
Interesting stuff.

Federer isn't playing great. He isn't serving well at all, and his unforced error count is pretty high. Ferrer is a good player, but when you have a head to head like that even if Ferrer did have the game to do some damage it's likely he couldn't produce it. Ferrer has played far better than he is today by far. It's just a bad mis-match for Ferrer. Federer can play averagely and still win fairly easily.

Djokovic wasn't fantastic against Tsonga...but he was against Murray. Both are in the second round and at this point both Murray and Djokovic have played better than Federer at this stage. That's all I'm saying, it could quickly change in the semi finals when/if he plays one of them as he's obviously played better than he is today.

Never said Federer is playing great. I know that he isn't serving well, I am just saying that overall he isn't playing that bad.

My point in bringing Tsonga and Djokovic is that everything can change when it reaches the semis, there is still time. Djokovic played average against Tsonga but played great against Murray.
Federer isn't thinking about them now, he is thinking about qualifying first. Same for Djokovic and Murray.

Edit: Federer wins 6-4, 7-6 and qualifies for the semis. Not a great performance but still good enough.

Should've put a bet on it but didn't. 8/15 for straight sets but wasn't sure and 1/6 wasn't worth it.

The overall performance wasn't fantastic but he played very well in the key moments which is what great players do. I really look forward to his clash with Del Potro, could be a really great match.

All depends on whether Del Po wins tonight, which he surely will. If he does he'll have to beat Federer to advance. It then just depends on how much effort Fed puts in now he's already through.

Not a great match. Ferrer put a good effort in there against a player who owns him. Federer wasn't great, but he wasn't awful either. He did enough today to beat Ferrer, just like Nole did against Tsonga. Federer didn't serve very well overall, but he served very well in that tiebreak. Glad he's through to the semis

All we need is a straight set Del Po win tonight, and Del Po is back in business.

Yeh, I'm hoping Del Potro can win easily tonight. Federer and Del Potro getting through will be far more interesting than Ferrer. If Djokovic gets through first and Del Potro faces him in the semi final, it could be really interesting and a great match.

Federer's been playing like that for a while now. That's why I'm calling a Murray/Djokovic Final based on current form. When was the last time that Federer was really on his game at their level? Cincinnati when he beat Djokovic?

Did just about enough to beat Ferrer and turned it on to take the big points. Doubt a stronger player like Murray and Djokovic or even Del Potro and Berdych would have passed up so many of them break points Ferrer had.

I think Ferrer has bigger chance to beat Djokovic than Del Potro has tbh. Del Potro doesn't have a good record against Djokovic.
Ferrer thrashed Djokovic last year.
