Re: Better Career: Chang vs Ivanisevic vs Ferrero

Its pretty amazing how Ferrero turned into a decidedly mediocre player after his illness in 2005 and never recovered to this day. In his prime he was an absolute beast from the baseline. His clay matches against Guga were some of the best matches around.

Ajde.

agreed. so sad. such a great player, great attitude. I feel like crying right now . I really thought at the time when him, Hewitt and Rog were at their prime Ferrero would be a multiple GS winner. well, too bad.

TRUE! I saw him on TV the other day, and his serving was awsome. Modern equipment does make a big difference. Even McEnroe at 54, with a hamsgring problem was serving great. Pete was ripping winning backhand returns. Watching these older players tody proves that they would be great players in today's game, if they were in their 20's or early 30's

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

Re: Better Career: Chang vs Ivanisevic vs Ferrero

Chang way better than those two

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Thomaz Bellucci, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic

Thiem will be top three by Dec 2016
Borna Coric will be No 1 by Dec 2017
Nick Kyrgios will be No 1 by Jan 2018

Re: Better Career: Chang vs Ivanisevic vs Ferrero

Ivanisevic

only one of the three to bring out the fire within his heart. All the missed chances and disappointments accumulated into a fiery passion that finally won him the Wimbledon crown he so craved - A great man with a great racquet smashing technique. Fear the power of RAGE

I am the accumulation of your hate - Bring forth your RAGE and feed it to me as a bounty offering - Taste the all conquering power of the anger within


The power has always been in your hands

Embrace it

Re: Better Career: Chang vs Ivanisevic vs Ferrero

Goran's serve is legendary.An example of how dangerous a big server is, when he can do something more than serve.

Isner&Kei = new Goran&Chang?

Re: Better Career: Chang vs Ivanisevic vs Ferrero

You are correct - Ivanisevic struck a winner off his knees - he is anything but all serving, but regular tennis fans can never understand - this evokes my RAGE

continue to underestimate these passionate hard servers - I happily feed on your red hot stupidity

I am the accumulation of your hate - Bring forth your RAGE and feed it to me as a bounty offering - Taste the all conquering power of the anger within


The power has always been in your hands

Re: Better Career: Chang vs Ivanisevic vs Ferrero

So Ivanisevic is an all serve mug who accidentally beat Muster, Bruguera, Courier and Chang on clay

Re: Better Career: Chang vs Ivanisevic vs Ferrero

For tennis, Chang the overachiever. For business, Ferrero will outlast them all with his sport academies.

Trolling is defined by Herring as baiting and luring others into pointless and time-consuming discussions.

4 criteria of trolls:

1. Appearance of outward sincerity.
2. Posts designed to incite anger or "flames"
3. Posts designed to waste everybody's time with useless argument
4. Desperate desire for attention, any attention at all

Recognize them, don't engage and put 'em on your ignore list where they belong. Feed a troll and you're just encouraging their attention-seeking.

ferrero defeated federer in a fast indoor hardcourt final in 2003, both fresh from their first slam win.....i think it was in madrid or was it in paris?

ferrero had easily 3 to 4 french opens in him......too bad he had to face peak kuerten too many times......

Surprisingly, inserting Roddick into this equation of single slam winners throws off the curve because he's had a better career than the other three. More weeks at #1 than Ferrero. More GS finals than Chang. More titles than Ivanisevic. Comparing Roddick to these three is like comparing Hewitt to other dual-major winners like Safin, Rafter and Kafelnikov.
