    Ferrer cruises into French Open semifinal World No. 5 David Ferrer advanced to the final four at Roland Garros with a routine victory over fellow Spaniard Tommy Robredo. The fourth seed is through to take on either Roger Federer or Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the next round.

    Fourth seed David Ferrer continued his successful French Open campaign, having ousted 32nd seed Tommy Robredo early Tuesday. The 31-year-old veteran needed just 85 minutes to secure a quarterfinal victory, 6-2, 6-1, 6-1.

    Ferrer ended the match with 26 winners and seven of 12 break points converted.

    He is through to take on either World No. 2 Roger Federer or World No. 7 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga for a place in the championship final.

If he loses against Tsonga many will put him down, call him little man, or boring spaniard or say that he doesn't have what it takes to beat the top players...
If Ferru is where he is in tennis it's because he doesn't listen to these negativity and just goes about his business. As always, if he loses it will not be because he didn't give everything he's got.
Vamos David!!!

Wow! Someone sure is confident! But will we be able to watch it if for some reason Ferrer loses? :)

I think Ferru owns the h2h which is a surprise. They're both playing pretty good tennis right now and I'm a fan of both, so I guess it comes down to "may the best man win".

Tsonga has what it takes to destroy ferrer. The question is can he keep it up? Ferrer has been so consistent that anything but Tsonga's best will end up with him being ground into dust.

I agree with RITB and DMW. Ferrer is certainly not an easy opponent on clay for Tsonga, not even for Rafa! He's playing very well here, beating his opponents easily and was especially impressive in beating Anderson, a big server, in the fourth round comfortably. He's certainly a better returner of serves than Fed is, even beating Raonic at Barcelona in 2011 and Raonic has even a bigger serve and harder to return serve than Tsonga has.

Ferrer will most probably returns as many of Tsonga's serves and shots, making Tsonga runs all over the place as much as possible. If Tsonga can't control the points and his own temper, he may get all irritated and starts missing. Ferrer has that type of game that frustrates the attacking players, when he simply runs down every shots and returns it with interest. Ferrer's H2Hs vs big hitting guys like Berdych, Delpo, Tsonga, Raonic and Anderson are rather impressive, so unless he shocks us with a poor match, like his SF vs Rafa here last year, or his SF vs Nole at AO this year, I see him making life very difficult for Tsonga.
