Both Federer and Ferrero have known each other since 2000 and have played 13 matches in all against each other, with Federer having a winning edge of 9-4 over Ferrero.
Federer last won over Ferrer 7-6(2) 3-6 6-1 6-3 in Wimbledon 2007, while Ferroro last beat Federer in 2004 ATP Hong Kong 6-4, 6-4. As can be seen their last encounter was five year ago and since then both have changed. However, Federer is fresh from his Madrid win, and should not find any difficulty in subduing the Spaniard.
Federer has lost only one of his last ten matches at Miami against Raonic. But Ferrero has had a troubled 2012 so far as he has lost seven of his last ten matches played. He last lost to I. Andreev 6-4 7-6(4) in Madrid recently.
The match is scheduled for Thursday, 17 May May 2012 at 19:00 GMT
