Who's Better - Tsonga or Ferrer?

That got me laughing.

So anyway who's better? Lets have the views from you tennis experts.

We're talking overall here. On clay of course we all know Ferrer is better.

Are you fucking kidding me? Tsonga. And it's not even close.

Re: Who's Better - Tsonga or Ferrer?

Ferrer's got consistency, "grit" and career-high ranking covered. Still easily Tsonga - slam finalist, won a masters title, beaten top 4 in slams, bigger threat at the big stages to the top 4, and an overall bigger game. (and is also far better to watch )

Exactly. He's also a few years younger so no doubt will achieve even more in his career.

Re: Who's Better - Tsonga or Ferrer?

Ferrer is more consistent but Tsonga has had better "best" results. Won Paris Bercy, AO final, after that semifinalist at the AO and Wimbledon. It's close but I'd say Tsonga. He also has more wins over the top players IIRC (also more brainless losses as well).

After Nadal beat Monfils at Doha, before AO 2014

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

Re: Who's Better - Tsonga or Ferrer?

This poll

Sure Tsonga is playing garbage tennis right now compared to Ferrer, and sure Ferrer has better/longer patches of consistency... but that does not mean Ferrer is better overall career wise.

Re: Who's Better - Tsonga or Ferrer?

its just a matter of oppinion

okay so tsonga made a slam final and won a masters title. Its not like david has never made a masters final

and okay so he never made a grand slam final but how many people are actually going to remember tsonga the slam finalist when he's not playing anymore? there's really not much to choose from between the two at this point

Re: Who's Better - Tsonga or Ferrer?

Stupid poll. Tsonga is better no matter how you look at it.

He has better career achievements despite being considerably younger - Slam final, Masters title
He has a much higher peak level
He's higher ranked currently


I can't believe this question is even being asked.

There are far more reasons why Tsonga will be remembered though:
- Beating Federer at Wimbledon
- First player to ever beat Federer in a GS from 2 sets to love down
- Beaten every top 4 player in a GS

Hell, he might even be more remembered for that performance against Nadal at the Australian Open a few years ago, one of the greatest performances ever surely.

I love you mate.

I can't believe I've actually made it either, but crazy to look at the poll results at the moment.

Who gives a fuck whether both are remembered or not! At the end of the day, Tsonga is better.
