Ferrer is one of the form players on the clay coming into the French Open and has to be fancied to go well.
Only the best have been able to beat the Spaniard on the red dirt in 2010 - he lost to Rafael Nadal in the final in Rome and also made the semis in Madrid, Barcelona and Monte Carlo.
And that's before you consider the South American swing earlier in the year, when he won in Acapulco and was runner-up in Buenos Aires.
Those results mean no-one has won more matches on the surface this season and many will be backing Ferrer to go well in Paris.
The former world number four made the quarter-finals here twice (in 2005 and 2008) and reaching at least that stage again has to be in Ferrer's sights given the shape he's in right now.
