Re: Better player? - Davydenko or Ferrer

I think Davy's grass record screws him over here...

Oh Sheesh Y'all, 'Twas A Dream

Number of Times I've Cried Over Sucking at FITD: All but seven

W Houston and Samarkand Singles W Charlottesville W Lermontov W ATP Bastad W Bol Fut W Orleans (w/MathMul) W Cordenons (w/dinkulpus) Tashkent S&D (w/ Mr Brightside)

Re: Better player? - Davydenko or Ferrer

Davydenko for sure. More Masters, the WTF, more titles and N3.

If it wasn't for Fed he would probably have a slam.

No contest here. WTF > MS. Denko also has a winning record over Dull, something I always enjoy reminding Dulltards of. And of course Denko actually has some talent.

Re: Better player? - Davydenko or Ferrer

I still go with Davydenko, but if Ferrer keeps going up like he has been, he would eclipse Kolya.

Re: Better player? - Davydenko or Ferrer

I voted for Ferrer just because he is so much more of a fighter but maybe certainly by the book Davydenko has better career results

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Rafael Nadal

Shouldn't even be a thread, Davydenko

Ferrer is still going though.

Game over. Forever.

Re: Better player? - Davydenko or Ferrer

Seriously, can we stop trying this?

Davy has three Masters and a WTF.

He won Miami over Duck and Dull. He won Shanghai over Gonzo, Djoke and Dull. He won the WTF over all of Dull, Soderling, Fed, and Del Potro.

Davydenko also has a winning record against Nadal.

And, objectively speaking, he's the more talented player. What Ferrer has just only recently grasped--using positioning to compensate for his stature--Davydenko has been doing all along.

So yeah, put simply, all that and more > Ferrer

Re: Better player? - Davydenko or Ferrer

Ferrer has had more haters in the past 7 or 8 months than in his entire career and all of them posting here at grand old MTF.

Astounding.

Tough call here
Yea tough call for sure

On-topic
Ferrertards getting desperate to catch something upon

Davy:
WTF , 3 MS, 21-6 record in finals , 6-5 against Nadal , at least defeated Fed 2 times , screwed by fracturing his wrist injury early 2010 otherwise he now would've been with 25 titles or so and rocketing around... ; more titles ... highest rank 3, talented ... more aggressive player ... 5 CONSECUTIVE top 6 year-endings... oh and 3-2 against Ferrer ... so yea ... you got it ...
PRIME 2006/2009 ... basically every year from 2005 to 2009 Davy would've spanked Prime Ferrer big time !
On every surface if he plays like 2007 on grass actually at least Davy then tried to prepare for the grass season

MR. FOREVER "UNDERRENTED"

SLAMS: 4 SEMIS, 6 QUARTERS
WTF: 1 TITLE, 1 FINAL, 1 SEMI
MASTERS: 3 TITLES, 5 SEMIS, 10 QUARTERS
TITLES: 21
MATCH WIN/LOSS: 482-329
