Re: Ferrer has to be the worst top 3 player ever

I like Ferrer but it's probably true He is not in contention for any of the slams and cannot beat Fed, Nadal, Djok.

Ljubicic clearly a worse No. 3, Blake too if he made it that high.

I'd say overall he's the 6th best player in the world.

Ferrer is so "overrated" that journalists cannot compliment him without simulteanously insulting him. And that's for those who bother to mention him at all.
They find him so "dangerous" that when Tsonga's draw came out for the French all the journalists in France were all and going on about how Tsonga "only" had to beat Federer and had "no one else" in his draw

Both of these players had a higher peak level than Ferrer but were less consistent.

As for the topic no he's not the worst ever but the fact that he's 30+ and at his career high says something about this garbage era.

What good is a higher peak level when you shit the bed in every slam? They combined for 1 GS semi and that came against a draw that would've left Pics Ferrer drooling.
