yes people keep on believing their own prejudice without checking anything

no that's not the reason : the real reason is that his style, with little power and making few errors, that he never seemed to "outplay" one of the top-4 players in a big match, is unpleasant for some who tried to popularize that "vulture" concept that his ranking was not a "real one".

Some others believed it because that theory was overall coherent and fitting with how he "looks".

I hear so many times that blablabla that Ferrer makes few errors then is impossible to beat by lower ranked players but can't beat top-players ... which is wrong actually if you look at his whole carreer activity.

Simon's example, who is a nightmare match-up for Federer (and for Berdych), but loses many matches against lower ranked players, doesn't seem to have affected that concept at all

Besides, Mountaindewslave should realize that that "vulture" concept was hardly ever used on this forum a little bit more than one year ago, then if "there's a reason why", why is it only now that that reason appeared true ?

The reason is simple : some guys insisted on that and sheep followed becaue that "theory" was somehow seductive, like many other false theories (including racist ones)

useless old guy
