Is David Ferrer the biggest gainer in the slowing of courts saga?

Ok the MAN in is the form of his life...but hey he used to be a clay court specialist..and look at him now..He's pummeling guys of the court...I think he is now even bigger threat on courts like IW than RG, even slower clay tournaments.
Obviously he is a workoholic and I respect him so much..
Had the courts remained the same David would be something of a Francisco Clavet of ATP circuit or a Bruguera (ok Sergi could play a little on faster courts but..)..not Moya, not Corretja, just a clay court artist who wouldn't even present himself at Wimledon.. Now he can practicaly win every tournament even indoors (Shanghai...remeber London last year?) if the chance presents itself..
I think he benetited the most..because top 4 would be there anyway having so much talent at their hands...especially Murray / Fed at faster conditions..

DObaaar!!!

Re: Is David Ferrer the biggest gainer in the slowing of courts saga?

he's had good results on hardcourts already in 2007, and since then he's had his ups and downs.

so i don't think it's directly related

Please,
Ferrer is playing well on all hard court speeds, he is just a very good player that works hard.

Ferrer made semis of USO in 2007 when it was a quick surface, beating Nadal.

Re: Is David Ferrer the biggest gainer in the slowing of courts saga?

he did all that..but overall he must be one of them at the top who benefits most...Well done for the US open but could have been a good draw everyone had one at certain point in career..SO did Coria one year (2005.)..but winning easily day in day out with his game is another story...

Of the top of my head, Ferrer, Monaco and Almagro are the ones gaining the most out of the "top players".

Re: Is David Ferrer the biggest gainer in the slowing of courts saga?

Nope, even at the last WTF he showed some very good game, so he's very consistent, besides, what did he gain exactly? Biggest title he has is an ATP500.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Ferrer would be successful regardless of court speeds or era.

That type of hard work, the game rewards.

Ferrer is a great player on faster courts as well.

Re: Is David Ferrer the biggest gainer in the slowing of courts saga?

I don't think so.

I'm watching players like Ebden, right now, and they're definitely the kind who are benefitting the most.

David is more of an offensive player than others give him credit for. I'd say, so is Nadal, for that matter. They can knock their opponents off balance with some offensive groundstrokes on any surface.

It's when you watch players like Gilles Simon or several of the up-and-coming Aussies who just put the ball in play and wait for an offensive error that probably wouldn't be in the top 100.

Re: Is David Ferrer the biggest gainer in the slowing of courts saga?

Ferrer likes either very fast or very slow
I think this may have actually hurt him, taking away slow clay and very fast HC
Likes slow clay and indoors

Re: Is David Ferrer the biggest gainer in the slowing of courts saga?

NO! Ferrer is still slamless no matter how slow the courts are. Rafilto is the biggest beneficiary/opportunist.
