Re: Who's Better - Berdych or Ferrer?

In this world of sucess... We have to sadly agree that M1000 > Not M1000.

Berdych.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.


First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.
(Actually 2nd)

Re: Who's Better - Berdych or Ferrer?

Berdych got a slam final, M1000 and can actually beat all top players when he is on his game.

Berdych is better.

Re: Who's Better - Berdych or Ferrer?

At peak level it's Berdych without the shadow of a doubt, and everyone knows it.

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.

Re: Who's Better - Berdych or Ferrer?

Close career-wise, though Berd has 4 years in which to achieve

| Wins over 3+ of the Top 4. Players to reach all slam QFs+ in history. Hawkeye/Line Calls. QFs+ at Slams & Masters, but never Top 20.
Haas / The Fog / Tsonga / Brown / Mahut / Dolgo / Fed / Baker / Alund / Tursunov / Copil / Bolelli / Brands / Benneteau / Gojowczyk / Steps / PHM
Rafter / Edberg / Henman / Stich / Safin / Gambill / Grosjean / Malisse / Gonzo / Llodra / Santoro / Agassi / Schalken / Nováček / Rosewall / H-T Lee / Kuerten / Boetsch / Pavel / Sundström / Björkman / Scud / El Aynaoui / Arazi / Calleri / Sampras / Nalbandian / Mosquito / Srichaphan

Re: Who's Better - Berdych or Ferrer?

One question I have in mind is if Ferrer ever peaked?

He made me accept my true feelings and help me share them to others. For that I think him very much.

Re: Who's Better - Berdych or Ferrer?

By the way I didn't make this to bash Ferrer. Just made it because the Tsonga - Ferrer poll was quite close.

Wow,didn't expect to be such a minority
Usually best indicator is prize money, and Ferru leads there



Matosevic, Hanescu, Lorenzi, Kukushkin, Chiudinelli, Gulbis, Bozoljac, Gabashvili, Hernych, Brown, Garcia-Lopez, Rosol, Zeballos, Istomin, Kohlschreiber, Tursunov, Robert, Gonzalez, Monaco, Thiem, Seppi
