09:00 – Djokovic v Ferrer
Rankings are 2 and 11. Head to heads are 4-4. Three of Ferrer’s 4 wins came on clay.
Ferrer looked to be in charge of the semi final with Ljubicic and never seemed like losing his serve in the first set. However Ljubicic found the break in the second to level the match. Ferrer fought back to take the match in the deciding set.
Djokovic started his semi final with Isner by being broken in the very first game. He soon broke back to take the set on a tie break. It was one way traffic in the second with the Serb taking it 6-2.
Both players are in great form and both know how to win finals.
Two players who are very consistent on serve, this match comes down to who returns best. Ferrer is the type of player who can trouble Djokovic as he never gives up and can get just about any ball back.
I feel Djokovic has just that bit more class and he will defend his title but it could easily be in 3 sets.
Back Djokovic on serve.
Update: Djokovic won 6-2, 6-4.
