Ferrer's career trajectory



What do people make of this? Hopefully we can get beyond "weak/strong era" debates

Re: Ferrer's career trajectory

As he aged he improved.

As he improved his seeding got higher and he played a higher seed later in the event.

What changed between 2009-10 and 2011? His serve has improved over the years but not enough to make such a big difference.

Re: Ferrer's career trajectory

As he aged, he became more of a vulture.

Re: Ferrer's career trajectory

Ferrer always receives my up most respect. At 30, he has essentially perfected the art of grinding and has reaped the benefits. Three Grand Slam semi-finals from the last four is outstanding.

And to be fair to him, he was very close to going two sets up against Murray on grass in the one slam of the last four he didn't make the semis.

Re: Ferrer's career trajectory

What are you trying to accomplish with this thread?

He got better with age, /thread. Although he hasn't lost in the first round of a slam since 2005, while playing them all

Nice jinx. Now watch him crash out in R1 in one of the remaining 3 slams this year

Re: Ferrer's career trajectory

Weak era.

Proud supporter of El Tio , the greatest genius alive!

Alchimists transform iron into gold. Boriiiiiing!
Movie-makers transform dreams into reality. Yeah, whatever...
El Tio transforms Dull into a multiple GS champion! Daaaaamn!

El Tio has the keys to weather, court speed, draw making, umpires' decisions and perception of time between points, top players' fatherhood, and my libido!

This signature is in no way ironic. Please don't ever let El Tio think that, for my sake!

Re: Ferrer's career trajectory

Honestly ... without this dull non-existent era bullshit.
I think Ferrer was alot faster when he was 23-25 (2005-2007) Dunno... I don't see any other difference.

MR. FOREVER "UNDERRENTED"

SLAMS: 4 SEMIS, 6 QUARTERS
WTF: 1 TITLE, 1 FINAL, 1 SEMI
MASTERS: 3 TITLES, 5 SEMIS, 10 QUARTERS
TITLES: 21
MATCH WIN/LOSS: 482-329

Re: Ferrer's career trajectory

Won few MM's at the start of 2010 = top 15 = easy first rounds at clay Masters cause he was seeded\ Federer illness and Djokovic troubles untill clay season in 2010 = top-10 = high-seeded at tournaments like Beijing and Valencia = vulturing at that tournaments = top-8 = got Raonic at 4R in AO = Q\F with injured Nadal = KEEP PLACE IN RANKS TO VULTURE EVERYWHERE as highest-ranked player to join another MM's 250 or 500 = VULTURED IT AND KEPT rankings= Such a chokers like Almagro and Tipsarevic at Q\F and injured Rafa = top-4 = if Djok\fed\Murray lost at early rounds, great chance to met Melzer, Haas, Llodra, Janowicz at late stages of Masters...
WOW, what a fantastic vulture he is.
