Re: Who's Better - Berdych or Ferrer?

Pretty close:

Berdych: 7 career titles (out of 14 finals), 1 GS Final at Wimbledon, 1 Masters title, 2 more Masters finals, QF at AO, SF at RG, 4R at USO, SF at WTF, career high rank of 6.
Ferrer: 14 career titles (out of 29 finals), 0 GS Finals, 0 Masters titles, 3 Masters finals, SF at AO, QF at RG, 4R at Wimbledon, SF at USO, Final at WTF, career high rank of 4.

I say slight edge to Berdych because of the Wimbledon final and because of who he beat to get there. Although Ferrer does have some achievements on him like the number of titles and a WTF final.

Supporting the unusual strokes gang: Dolgopolov, Mayer, Mannarino, Tomic

I feel that the purpose of this thread is to invite people to talk trash bout Ferrer again, which is pathetic. The guy has a limited game but he has perfected it with hard work and made it more solid than almost all other top tenners. He is a youngster-killer, and has been fighting in the top 10 for years. Only morons disrespect him.
This. The guy is a model professional and one of the hardest workers in the sport. You can never accuse him of not giving 100% or ever say he didn't achieve all he could.

That. I don't get the Ferrer bashing in this forum. The guy gives his heart out every time he's out there and granted he may not be as talented or diverse as most of the top 10 but what he can do he does at the highest level and he put a lot of sweat into it.

I have nothing against him, unlike players like Stepanek who makes me want to throw some clay in his eyes and chase him down the court with that clay straightening thing.

Kindred spirits. How touching.

Seriously though, I can fully accept you dislike his game or think he has overachieved. I just don't understand why that would boil your blood so much.

The only thing I can think is it's because he had been ranked ahead of your favourite players and thus taking the spotlight off them.

Sure. But you're paying for tickets. Maybe World Tour Finals, if Ferrer happens to fluke another top 8 finish?

Re: Who's Better - Berdych or Ferrer?

berdych and tsonga may not be as consistent as ferrer but they have shown to have the game to be able to beat the top 4 in slams which makes them better in my book.

Right there mate. Was at his match against Djokovic there last year and I admit he played well, lets hope he doesn't do the same this time around.

Obviously. Had Djokovic won it would have made Berdych's route to making the semi's less complicated.

Hit the nail on the head. Btw, that's the thing I find most confusing, how can people hate him for being overestimated when no one ever mentions him as a title contender? He is also one of the most humble guys out there.

Nah it will be more like 2010 where he can't even take a set. We'll be there to boo him if he starts hitting some fluke shots

Ability-wise/Talent: Berdych >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Ferrer.
Ferrer doesn't have MS title and a slam final unlike Tomas. Berdych wins easily here.

Exactly. Ferrer has squeezed every last bit of success out of his limited talents. When he retires he will have no regrets because he worked his socks off to acheive what he has.
