The Spanish Federation rent a private jet for David Ferrer. 300 meters from Flushing Meadows baseball was played!

In addition to the disappointment of losing the semi-final, the Spaniard Ferrer will be forced to hurry and pack to be able to travel as soon as possible to Gjion the home of the Davis Cup semi-final: the Spanish Federation did not appreciate the postponement of yesterday, justified by the need to preserve the safety of the spectators on Arthur Ashe, even more so after they learned that just 300 meters away the first baseball game of the New York Mets, with thousands of people present still continued in the stands.

To overcome the likely delay Ferrer who otherwise would not be able to arrive in Spain before Tuesday, was grateful to receive help from the Federation who had made a private jet for him and his team.

The controversy arises from the fact that for the purposes of television they decided not to move the meeting on the second court of Flushing Meadows despite knowing the high probability of adverse weather conditions.
