Ferrer used to have pretty much no haters at all here, until that mug called Lenders arrived. After that even bigger mugs simply followed suit and repeated this "Vulture" nonsense to death. The concept "vulturing" started as a pathetic joke but then the idiots on here with neither tennis knowledge nor respect started to think it was actually possible to vulture yourself to #5 in the world.
I myself greatly respect Ferrer's work ethic and competitive fire even at 30 years old. As for his schedule, he plays almost every week and there's not much strategy to it. HOWEVER, I'm willing to bet more pros would play just as much if they only could, but they're not fit enough. Pics on the other hand uses his greatest strengths endurance and consistency to perfection. He also has a good record against the top 10 & to top it off he is a humble guy off-court. The only reason to hate him is attention whoring.
