Re: Who's Better - Berdych or Ferrer?

I hate these "who is better" threads, because it's so hard to compare when it comes to closely ranked players.

Obviously I'm a Ferrer fan but I like Birdman too. I'd say Birdie is a more naturally gifted player than Ferrer. Ferrer on the other hand is such a hard worker and fighter and has made the absolute most of his somewhat more limited talent.

Yes Tomas has a slam final and a MS1000 but Ferrer has been a top ten player for a much longer time. Sooooooo .........

Re: Who's Better - Berdych or Ferrer?

Does Berdych really have better results in slams? Apart from the Wimby final I believe he got knocked out of slams around the some round as Ferrer usually gets beaten. And I think overall Ferrers slam results are actually better. But I could be wrong.

Its the lamest Masters tourney the last years with about half the top 20 not playing and 4-5 in the top 10 not playing was a bit better this year but not much. Players like Ferrer and Verdasco played finals when Players like Djokovic,Murray, Delpo, Soda in good form did not play..

Re: Who's Better - Berdych or Ferrer?

Pretty equal. Solid world #5-6. (Not Tsonga).

If I had to choose one, I'd give the edge to Ferrer.

Re: Who's Better - Berdych or Ferrer?

Ferrer will get 360 P this week though and Bird just 180 and that's also the story of Ferrer often gets good Draws and openings, Rafa injured at Ao the other year for Ex etc..

He is a nice guy and all though but i prefer Berdych Tennis over Ferrer's.

I don't agree. It's a M1000 and players not showing up doesn't mean it's a crappy ass tourney. The best have been there every year. It has history.

Players "like Ferrer and Verdasco" may have had more success in MC than Berdych when the top guys weren't around, but I do believe that Tomy B. got beat in MC by such very greats like Ljubo, that same Verdasco and THE Fognini.

Oh give me a break with the whole Ferrer gets better draws and openings bs. You don't like Ferrer and that's fine. And you prefer Berdych's tennis which I also thoroughly enjoy. Fact is, it's hard to say who is the better player. They play different styles but have very close results and therefor ranking.

And that's it for me. Like I said in my first post, I don't actually like these comparison threads, so what the hell am I doing here.

Adios!

Re: Who's Better - Berdych or Ferrer?

Ferrer IMO is the better player physically and mentally, while berdych is the more talented of the 2. The rankings , and h2h head with the top 4 is close , slams results are close career wise because of the final at Wimby for berdych gives him the edge.
I would still rank ferrer ahead of Birdshit because he is Nadulls bitchboy . Despite having the game to trouble nadull.
Ferrer is Feds bitch but he doesn't have the game to trouble fed.
Birdshit is an absolute waste of time and he and certinfy should retire immediately for tennis to move forward.

The law of nature,only the strong survive.




THE GREAT TACTICAL RIVALRY OF THE OPEN ERA
FEDERER 10 VS TONI NADAL 20
ADVANTAGE TONI NADAL
RAPHEAL NADULL,A PRETTY FACE & MUSCLE
NOTHING MORE

Fed 2 nadull 13 fed is nadull CLAY TURKEY. THE REAL ERA 2003-2010.

Re: Who's Better - Berdych or Ferrer?

Ferrer is more consistent, Berdych when on more dangerous, also more likely to win something big.

Re: Who's Better - Berdych or Ferrer?

Berdych is hardly inconsistent.

Berdych is by far the better player overall and on every surface.

This, he's even better than Ferrer on clay.

Really, there's no contest here. You just need to watch them both play to realize who the more talented and dangerous player is.
