I wonder why ppl think the likes of Berdych/Tsonga/DelPo are more deserving than Ferrer? what should the bar based on? their perceived Talents? their performances in slams? their respective match results from the last 2 days?
If it's by their perceived talents, then why is Gulbis not in Top 10. If by slam performances, then please refer to the chart below that stated their respective points earned in all classifications in 2012:
Player Total WTF Slams 1000s 500s 250s
Ferrer 6865 400 2520 1775 1670 500
Berdych 4680 200 1270 1995 565 650
DelPo 4210 400 990 1180 1140 500
Tsonga 3555 - 1485 1090 580 400
If it's by results of the past 2 days, DelPo didn't make it to that past 2 days, what then? should he be ranked below Chardy?
And if Berdych/Tsonga/DelPo are more deserving bcos you guys think they are more talented, then why don't they just put up the numbers to show then? If they fail to get the pts to pass Ferrer, then how are they more deserving to be Top 5 than Ferrer?
If you think the ranking should solely be based on every player's ability to play against the Big 4, then go lobby ATP to change that. Otherwise, the ranking system is set at the moment based on points and everyone of them playing under this same set of rules. They only deserve their ranking if they earn those points.
