People still try to claim vulture is better than Delpo?
Funny thing is vultures biggest achievement is a MS1000, Delpos was a GS.. there's even lots of questions surrounding vultures MS1000 win. I mean I like Llodra, but him a MS1000 SF ? lol. And we all know that had Ferrer's Final opponent not had to come through qualifying and been so tired, as well as emotionally drained from the best week of his career at that moment in time, he would have destroyed the pushing vulture in 2 sets... instead vulture was disrespectful as hell and resorted to grinding and already knackered JJ to the ground... pathetic
currently he probably is the better player
the fact is that Ferrer can consistantly play on a much higher level than Del Potro
it would be different if Del Potro had won the US Open in 2012 or something but it was fucking 2009
his top form has long since dropped, whether or not its sad doesn't really matter, it is what it is
Ferrer beats Del Potro, Tsonga, Berdych, etc. more often than they beat him
Ferrer is much more consistant from tournament to tournament
Ferrer in the last few years has the best GS results of all players NOT named Nadal, Djokovic, Federer, Murray
Ferrer is the only random player to win a Masters 1000 not in the top 4 in the last couple seasons
etc. etc. etc.
don't read too much from that Wimbledon match, grass is arguably Ferrer's worst surface AND it's a terrible matchup (Ferrer's worst surface against an extremely powerful/big server? and virtually no preparation on the surface???)
Ferrer has been better than Del Potro's for seasons
I'm tired of this bullshit comparing players tip top peak. so are we going to hold on to the memory of Del Potro's form from 2008 and 2009 and never move on? the fact is tennis and live do change, and that Del Potro has no real argument for being a better player Ferrer anymore
so what if he beats the tops guys a few times more often. he DOESN'T get the job done week to week and hasn't won big tournaments.
Ferrer leads by a big margin in points, GS success (past few seasons), and even the H2H against all of these players who are 'supposedly' better than him
tennis is a marathon not a sprint. you can be winning the race for the first few laps and have miles to go. Del Potro hasn't lasted and you guys are stuck in the past
