#FridayFlashback: Wayne Ferreira

1 June 2015 5:44 PM
Marc Lewis speaks to one of the few Tennis players to have a positive result against Roger Federer, Wayne Ferreira.

Although he's been away from the tennis forefront in recent years, Wayne Ferreira is still a formidable force in tennis circles. At some point (1995) he ranked no 6 in the world! Some of his biggest titles include the Tennis Masters series in Toronto (1996) and Stuttgart (2000).

He also teamed up with Amanda Coetzer win the Hopman Cup for South Africa.

Barcelona stands out as one of the best moments of my career. I didn't understand just how great that achievement was until I got older.

Wayne Ferreira, Former South African professional Tennis player

Wayne reflects on his biggest victories as well as his disappointments with the way the game has changed - with the increase of technology. He also tells us what he's currently up to.

He shares his views on Kevin Anderson:

I think he's doing exceptionally well. He's an exceptional player with ability. He's still got some years left in him and can definitely show up in the top 10 and show everybody his true potential.
