While several people may consider David Ferrer to be a clay court specialist, Andy Murray is certanly not one of them. The world no. 4 Murray will take on fifth ranked David Ferrer in the quarter finals on Wednesday.
"No, he's not," Murray told the media when asked in his press conference. "He won last week on grass [in the Netherlands], so he's won, what, eight matches in a row on the grass? He's been in the semifinals of Australia, I think semifinals of U.S. Open, as well, and now he's starting to play better on grass. I don't see him as a clay-court specialist at all."
Ferrer beat Murray in the quarterfinals of Roland Garros last month.
The two have met 10 times and won 5 each although this is their first meeting on grass
