Ferrero
so Goran's Wimbledon is a fluke but Chang winning RG at age of 17 was NID

Well, avoiding his Wimbledon rival Sampras was very lucky.

Re: Better Career: Chang vs Ivanisevic vs Ferrero

Must be Chang but I can never forgive him for beating Edberg in that Final and preventing the most epic slam win. But as a swede it's hard to be mad at a 17 year kid that came out of nowhere. Borg won it at 18, Think Wilander was 17.

Chang turned out to have quite a nice career but compared to other very young FO winners maybe not. But I still feel like he overachieved

I think Ferrero is/was the most talented of the three. Shame that his career derailed by injuries/sickness otherwise he would probably had the best career

The Ivanisevic,Davydenko and Ferrero fanboyism is irrealistic in MTF.

I´d say Chang beating a choking Lendl ( one of the chokes of all time) and then facing Edberg in the final is pretty lucky as well. If Goran´s wimbledon win was a fluke, then so was definitely Chang´s RG.

That's irrelevant to the fact that it was an impressive slam win. No bias there. Nadal RG 2008 was an impressive slam win and I can't stand watching Nadal play. As for your statement, exact same could be said about Delpo. And a lot of others

It was all in the same slam but it was THE slam. If a player is gonna win a major or come close to winning a major, they probably wouldn't pick AO, FO or USO, they'd probably like Wimbledon. Additionally, I believe that during the years Goran made the Wimbledon finals, the fields were loaded with anyone who could win it (even with Sampras in the draw).

Re: Better Career: Chang vs Ivanisevic vs Ferrero

I really love Ferrero and I think that he underachieved in his career. I was always his big fan. Chang was a big fighter. Goran, again could have done so much more. I just simply never liked his behavior on the court.
