Spaniard, and clay court specialist, David Ferrer has beaten Juan Martin del Potro in a convincing display that leaves little doubt that David has been working on consistently improving his game and form.
Pocket rocket Ferrer was relentless as he ripped winners and chased everything down to book his quarterfinal spot against Andy Murray with the 6-3, 6-2, 6-3 win.
As Ferrer took a 5-2 lead in the first set Del Potro slid jamming and hyper-extending his left knee before calling for the trainer and having it strapped
Despite Del Potro’s best efforts David was there to run down every shot and block the former US Open champion at every turn.
It was a good match from Del Potro with his brilliant power and flat hitting on display but it wasn’t enough to combat 34 winners and just 8 unforced errors from David.
David, the quiet achiever, now faces Andy Murray as the Scot attempts to be the first UK player to claim the Wimbledon title in almost eight decades.
