David Ferrer will take on Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia in the 4th round of the ongoing US Open. The winner of this match will make his way into the quarter final round of the tournament.

Ferrer hadn’t come into the US Open with the best of forms. He had looked in awful nick in the last couple of tournaments, but, here at Flushing Meadows, he got an easy draw and that helped him in getting his rhythm back to some extent. He hasn’t hit top form yet, but, he is certainly looking better than what he was looking a couple of weeks back.

The Spanish no. 2 had started his campaign against the Australian youngster Nick Kyrgios whom he thrashed without having too many problems. In the second round, he was up against his countryman Roberto Bautista Agut and he was supposed to dominate in that match too, but, he struggled just a little bit before eventually sealing the match in 4 sets.

In the 3rd round, Ferrer’s opponent was Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan and he dropped a set in that match too. So, he is still not at the peak of his game.

On the other hand, Tipsarevic who is a fantastic hard court player also has had tough times this season. He has dropped down 12 positions in the world rankings since the start of the season.

The Serbian player has done alright in this tournament, but, still to match Ferrer, he will have to raise his game significantly.

It’s the 6th time that these two players are going to face each other. Out of the previous 5 matches, Ferrer has come victorious on 4 occasions.

So, if we take history into account, Ferrer seems to be the favourite, but, Tipsarevic is well capable of surprising any player on the tour.
