Tennis - Rafael Nadal has said that compatriot David Ferrer, who will meet him in the French Open finals on Saturday, deserves to win a grand slam for all the hard work and consistent results he has had over the years. Speaking in Paris after beating Novak Djokovic, Nadal commented, "Tennis is a fair sport, and if somebody deserves to win titles, to be in the finals of a grand slam, it's David.
It's like Andy at the US Open. He deserved to be the winner of a grand slam because he was in that position to be the winner a lot of times. The person who is not respecting David as one of the greatest players of the world - and not for one year, for a long time - it's because that person doesn't know anything about tennis." "He's a player that if you are not playing perfect, you will be in big, big trouble.
I'm going to try tomorrow [Sunday]. Tomorrow [Sunday] will be a great day for the sport in Spain. It's very difficult to make that happen, two Spanish players in the finals of a grand slam."
