LL Ryan Harrison Leads No. 7 David Ferrer 7-6(6). Lucky Loser Ryan Harrison has taken the first set from No. 7 David Ferrer, winning the tiebreak 8-6. Harrison saved two set points in the breaker before finally clinching the set.
Both players have hit some spectacular shots in this match thus far, with Ferrer's less aggressive style allowing for some pretty long rallies (by grass standards). Harrison has been able to produce winners from all parts of the court, especially off of his runnig forehand.
Harrison has long said that grass is his favorite surface, and so it was a bit of a surprise when he lost in the final round of qualifying Wimbledon qualifying to unknown German Cedrik-Marcel Stebe.
Grass is Ferrer's worst surface by far, so he was always considered fairly ripe for an upset here. But for a player who didn't even make it through qualifying to beat him would be a pretty big surprise.
