Like Federer, Ferrero made his grand slam breakthrough earlier this year, the baseliner dominating on the slow courts at Roland Garros.
But also like his Swiss rival, Ferrero can be a force on hard courts with his powerful groundstrokes and pin-point serve. Proved he has the temperament to win grand slams, must now prove he can do it away from his beloved clay.
