• Ferrer takes on Fognini in Miami third round

    3/24/13 12:54 PM | Cheryl Murray
    Ferrer takes on Fognini in Miami third round David Ferrer will take on Italy's Fabio Fognini for a spot in the Sony Open round of 16.

    No. 3 seed David Ferrer will take the court on Sunday against Fabio Fognini, with the winner moving into the fourth round.

    This has proven to be a favorable match-up for Ferrer. He has played Fognini on clay, hard courts and grass for 5 total matches and he's won each of them for a 5-0 record over the Italian.

    As the No. 32 seed, Fognini actually enjoyed a bye into the second round, where he beat Frenchman Michael Llodra. This will be just his second match this week, on a surface that hasn't historically worked well for his clay-court game.

    Ferrer is also considered a clay courter, but the Spaniard's game has translated better to other surfaces, partially due to his consistency off the baseline and also because of his retrieving ability. Ferrer owns two titles this year, one on hard court and one on clay, and he has a semifinal showing at the Australian Open.

    Prediction - Ferrer is well-rested, having lost early in Indian Wells. He should have little difficulty getting past Fognini. Ferrer in straight sets.
