Without his results in smaller tournaments he would still be world number 5.
the reality is almost every single season David Ferrer's ranking DEPENDS on smaller tournaments. you can't take one season (2012) where he did better than usual at Grand Slams and by winning a masters and suddenly make that the 'norm'. you are mistaken, the majority of his seasons on tour, his ranking would be dramatically dramatically lower without his results outside the big tournaments. there is quite a stagnant difference between QF points in a grand slam vs. a final after all. I love David, but there is a reason he is claimed to be a 'vulture', quite straight forwardly because he does so well and accumlates so many points in small events
