This photo really epitomizes Spanish player David Ferrer. Currently ranked #7 on the ATP tour, he plays hard and is intense. Always. It's a great combination for a tennis fan! Tennis commentator Brad Gilbert refers to Ferrer as "Little Beast", since he's just 5'9" and prowls the court with the ferocity of…well…a beast. This was the first time I saw Ferrer play in person and he was lots of fun to watch. Incredible player. Believe it or not, he's 33 years old -- which, more or less, is considered geriatric in the tennis world. But, he's maintaining the intensity and sharpness..and keeping pace with the young guns. Go Little Beast!
