David Ferrer faces Tomas Berdych in the 1/8-finals of Roland Garros.
David Ferrer is on 11th position in ATP Rankings. In his opening match in the tournament, he beat easily Donskoy in 3 sets. He then took the success over Monaco in the next round in 4 sets, before beating compatriot Feliciano Lopez in three sets. Despite some good results, the Spaniard made an early season below its level. He reached 1/2 final in Auckland, 1/4 finals of the Australian Open. On clay, he reached the 1/2-final in Buenos Aires, 1/4 and 1/2 in Rio and last week in Geneva. But he was soon released the 3rd round by Berdych in Madrid and Rome by Lucas Pouille.
Tomas Berdych, No. 8 in the world, has validated his ticket for the 8th finals by dominating in turn Pospisil in 3 sets, Jaziri, in 4 sets, and finally Cuevas, in 4 sets. This season, the Czech has not made good tournaments on clay. He fell from his opening match in Monte Carlo. He then reached the quarterfinals in Madrid before being eliminated in 8th finals in Rome.
The two players have played 15 matches against each other. Ferrer leads in direct confrontations with 9 wins to 6. On clay, the Spaniard won 3 times in 5 games. The last match on clay was held in Madrid this year and the Czech had won 7-6 7-5
David Ferrer is a real clay court specialist but he has not the same level as 2 years ago. In the eighth finals of Roland Garros, we see Berdych as winner.
