In this exciting encounter between two great grinders on tour, David Ferrer will be up against World No. 9 Janko Tipsarevic. Serb eighth seed Tipsarevic reached his second successive quarter-final at Flushing Meadows on Wednesday after earning a straight sets victory over German 19th seed Philipp Kohlschreiber with a 6-3, 7-6 (5), 6-2 scoreline. On the other hand, Spain's David Ferrer advanced into his fourth Grand Slam quarterfinal of 2012 on Tuesday after beating Richard Gasquet 7-5, 7-6 (2), 6-4 in a rain-hit US Open last-16 tie.
One of the most consistent players on ATP World Tour, World No. 5 David Ferrer of Spain is a role model for many aspiring tennis players all across the world. Though, he has been performing under overwhelming shadow of Rafael Nadal since the latter started his career, Ferrer has made a special name for himself amidst ever-escalating competition in the world of tennis. The most heartening thing about Ferrer is that he makes the most of whatever he has and no one on tour can afford to go a bit complacent against him.
During a recently conducted interview, Ferrer asserted that he has been enjoying the best season of his career so far this year and he would try his best to maintain the momentum. Thirty years old Ferrer has a stellar 56-11 win-loss record for the season so far and has claimed five titles this year. He made a perfect start to the new season by winning a title at Auckland and completed an unbeaten Latin American Swing in February with a 10-0 record, while winning two titles at Buenos Aires and Acapulco. He also reached the quarterfinals in Miami. Ferrer continued to impress on clay and reached the final at Barcelona and then semi-final at Roland Garros. He also made it to Wimby quarters.
On the other hand, Janko Tipsarevic also has an impressive 47-18 win-loss record for the season. The Serbian has an ATP World Tour title to his name this season. Turned professional in 2002, twenty eight years old Serbian has won three titles so far. Tipsarevic lost to Richard Gasquet in the third-round at Aussie Open and also made an impressive run on European clay swing with 15-5 record. He also lost in the third-round at Wimbledon.
In head-to-head, Ferrer leads with 2-1 against the Serbian. Last time they met in 2008, Beijing Olympics, where Tipsarevic topped the Spaniard in straight sets.
