How well will David Ferrer perform in 2013?

How well do you guys reckon Ferrer will back up from his impressive 2012 season?

7 titles. SF/QF in the grand slams. 76-15 season.

Re: How well will David Ferrer perform in 2013?

he'll probably end up number 5 again. don't see him winning any majors, just being good and consistent.

Re: How well will David Ferrer perform in 2013?

An early exit in a grand slam would probably allow players to past him in the rankings.

I don't think he can repeat what he did this year. And he's not getting any younger.

I can see Delpo and Berdych overtaking him and some other player like Raonic or Nishikori breaking through and reaching the TOP 10.

He will still be TOP 10 I think, but not #5.

yeah, agree with you here, #6/7 or something like that but, I do need to see DP stepping up next year, like seriously. As much as I love Pics he will not achieve anything big, he just can't and it's not his fault, Pics is a monster with what he has, huge respect for him. However, no excuses for DP. not any more. he is young, he is good ... he needs to deliver

Ferrer won't stop fighting! I think he'll do the same or even better in 2013!

Re: How well will David Ferrer perform in 2013?

He's due for an injury, but I hope not. Would love to see him win a slam, or at least finally make a final

Re: How well will David Ferrer perform in 2013?

I see him doing around the same. could snag a masters or make a deep run at a slam BUT overall consistancy is expected with some smaller tournaments. I certainly expect him to win the likes of Auckland and maybe something small in South America to start out his season. but overall we have to expect it stays relatively similar to that of last year. the only way I see him exceeding 2012 is if fate is fortunate to him and Nadal is still not in form in clay season. that would be a heavens sent gift for him and might finally make a huge move at Roland Garros

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

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

Re: How well will David Ferrer perform in 2013?

I think that he'll have a season much like he did in 2012. One of his strongest qualities is his ability to be consistent and not have many let-downs.

Re: How well will David Ferrer perform in 2013?

i would love nothing more than to see David hang onto #5 and maybe snag #4 for a couple weeks before IW.

I think he has a decent shot at stealing that number 4 spot for a small window, but I think by year end he will have retracted back to #6 unfortunately.

Delpo is the only player capable of passing him from what i've seen over the past year and a half, but Delpo is going to have to hope that he doesn't land in Ferrer's section of the draws at tournaments where Ferrer is seeded 4 (because of a top player not playing i.e. monte-carlo)

Gulbis Ferrer Nishikori
Isner Nadal Dimitrov Istomin Wawrinka B. Baker
