re: Tennis Discussion Thread

More possible now with Fed looking like his standard's dropping but he's 15-0 against Ferrer. He's won 5 on clay too. It's as close as to Taker's streak as you'll get in tennis.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Yeah but like I said at the weekend H2H's are misleading sometimes and purely based on history. Federer isn't the same player he was who dominated guys like Ferrer. He's more vulnerable now and I'm not sure if the top 8 fear him as much in 2013 as they did yesteryear. I'm not saying they don't fear him at all before a Federer fan jumps on my back but he doesn't look invincible anymore. He looks beatable and he's shown he can be beaten more than once, even by the Berdych's and the Del Potro's and not just the Murray's and the Djokovic's.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Yeah like I said I think it's more possible now Ferrer can beat him with Fed's decline. It's surely going to be a lot closer, but it's Federer's game when he plays Ferrer. He controls it so comfortably. Ferrer's had little answer to it either. It's just the dominance of their meetings, but yes it'll definitely be a closer contest now. So much of any sport is played in the head. If you go in not feeling confident, most often you lose.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Ferrer's style is not suited for playing Federer, look at all their matches, Federer is always dictating the play because none of Ferrer's shots hurt Fed

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Even though Federer standard's has been dropping, he is still too good for Ferrer. I don't think Ferrer can beat him. Federer just dominates Ferrer even when he's not playing well. Ferrer's style doesn't work against Federer. It is just an extremely bad match up for Ferrer. Federer just owns him. And with that H2H, the mental factor would also come into play. It's a huge mis-match for Ferrer.

If he is playing against Djokovic, Nadal or Federer I don't think he can win but if he's playing against Murray, I think he can win tbh.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

H2H are only misleading if they are not lopsided and have matches that span few years apart.

However you don't need to be a genius to see that Federer is a better player than Roddick just by looking at head to head 26-3 or something like that

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Like mentioned, Federer is a really bad match-up for Ferrer. There's a reason Ferrer has failed to take a set off Federer.

Ferrer and Del Po have good chances at picking up titles on clay imo

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Ferrer is a massive title vulture, meaning if you follow him he plays a ton of small 250 tournamets where the field is really weak, so he does well and gets a lot of points.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

So there is a question of how long will he be able to keep playing tournaments every week. His body will surely give if he keeps that up.
