Re: David Ferrer is the new World #4 !

I hope he keeps drawing Djokovic in the semis of Slams (and getting stomped of course) to make the OP even happier

Of course that'd require living up to his seeding on a consistent basis and we all know quite well that won't happen. Horrible for the game, this vulture is only around to ruin draws.

If we're lucky, we will get to see Ferrer schooling one (or more) of those 3 guys nearly every tournament
Negative. We'll see those guys and Nadal school him.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers

Why would they suddenly start schooling him now? I'm not including Nadal here by the way - just Berd, Tsonga, JMDP

If Ferrer can keep #4 for several months now, this is gonna be a very depressing year for his haters, especially ones who are fans of Tsonga/JMDP/Berdych.

Last year he faced Tsonga in Paris Tankers. Only time they faced at a Slam? Easy straight sets for Jo. He faced Berdych after Tomas played five sets two days in a row in both singles and doubles and had nothing left. He will not get those favorable circumstances this time around

Fair enough. It will be interesting to see how it goes anyway.

Ferrer has never been very good on grass, though. One QF in 10 attempts.

School him? Fair enough with nadal and djokovic but the others there.

Ferrer has 6-2 against del potro, 6-3 against berdych, and 2-1 against tsonga,i guess you will say he got lucky or something.

Tsonga of course on grass will be favourite vs ferrer, may i remind you he knocked out federer that year also. If they played in the french open im guessing the result will be somewhat different.

Re: David Ferrer is the new World #4 !

Nadal will have got it back after Acapulco in all probability.

Ferrer's worked hard but this is as high as it gets for him. Still, he's maximised all he had.

Nah, in all probability, Nadal will remain outside the top four until after Wimbledon.

He has practically no margin for gain except these Latin events and Madrid.

I can't see Ferrer doing worse than last year.
