Re: Ferrer 20th title; 3rd among spaniards

Should really have done better than just 1 Masters.

20 titles is still a great achievement for a player of his talents though.

Because of his performance in RG 2012 and AO 2013 semifinal matches?

Grand Slam (0)
ATP World Tour Finals (0)
ATP Masters 1000 (1) - beating juggernauts like Llodra and Janowicz in SF and F

ATP World Tour 500 (7)
ATP World Tour 250 (12)


This pretty sums it up the perennial Mickey Mouse vulture. Wake me up when he actually beats some great players in the late stages (SF/F) to win titles.

So you admit that winning smaller titles on a consistent basis and getting pounded by the top players in Slams is Ferrer's maximum potential?

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; 7 finals lost

Re: Ferrer 20th title; 3rd among spaniards

players like ferrer are meat and potatoes of atp. without them, tennis would be like pro tours/exhibitions in 50s and 60s

Re: Ferrer 20th title; 3rd among spaniards

Good for him.


Btw Lenders, Janowicz is a great player, that victory over Janowicz was probs Ferrer's biggest win in his career, not only because he finally won a MS1000 but also in tersm of magnitude of player he beat.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

Re: Ferrer 20th title; 3rd among spaniards

The majority of Ferrer's losses come to the big 4 around him. He rarely loses to guys he shouldn't, and that's why he is where he is in the rankings. Hard work gets you very far in life and sport.

He may be level on titles with Moya, but Moya's career absolutely blows his out of the water.
