Berdych only plays well against GOATs.

Re: Who's Better - Berdych or Ferrer?

I love how people talk about most titles but there's a few years difference between them . I am not even a fan of either and am happy about Ferrer. But it's definitely not as clear-cut as some might it to be.

Re: Who's Better - Berdych or Ferrer?

Backhand: Berdych
Forehand: Berdych
ROS: Ferrer
Serve: Berdych
Power: Berdych
Consistency: Ferrer
Movement: Ferrer
Net game: Berdych
Shotmaking: Berdych
Ballstriking: Berdych
Raw talent: Berdych by far.
Higher level of tennis: Berdych by far.
The more skilled player: Berdych by far.
Bigger threat to top players: Berdych.

There is simply a huge gap between these 2 in terms of tennis ability.
Berdych will end up with the better career for sure.

I love how you ignore the other points and start about that

Berdych is three years younger and needs to win 10 titles to catch up

Re: Who's Better - Berdych or Ferrer?

Ferrer has better groundstrokes than Berdych, easily

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

If better means more consistent then ok, but if it means more dangerous/powerful/precise - then no.

"Who is better" could mean different things. Ferrer is a better person, Berdych is a better basketball player.

Career wise so far - Ferrer. He's been a solid top 10 for years.

After both end their careers - i think Berdych will have achieved more.

It's a classical defense against offense kind of discussion here and while offense is prettier to watch, defense is most often more efficient.

So it's really hard to say. At the moment they're pretty equal. In a few years should be Tbird.

Re: Who's Better - Berdych or Ferrer?

berdych lived for beating frauderer

he denied the abusive swiss a gold medal at a time when frauderer still played exciting tennis

this gave him a meaning to his life, the oxygen for him to breathe

mugbych got all excited in wimbledon 2010 when he beat the arrogant serve bot then laid down for the humble spainard

his career peaked then. now he only lives to deny olderer fluke grand slams

After Ferrer's GS F it was doubtful.
