As per Jon Wertheim's mailbag this week: "Ferrero has the consistency and an Agassi-like propensity to take the ball on the rise". Hopefully there's more similarity between the 2, ie the Parisien titles.
I always do think Agassi and Ferrero has very similar style, eventhough I really don't like Agassi, but it's not a bad thing that Ferrero got to be compared with one of the greatest tennis player in the history.
Another one that he got compared to is Mats Wilander. I don't think I've ever seen Wilandar play so I can't really agree or disagree with that. But with Wilander's achievement, I really like the comparison
. Here's the quote from the mailbag:
How would you compare Juan Carlos Ferrero's all-around game to that of Mats Wilander? Do you think Ferrero has what it takes to win as many slams as Wilander did? --Stelio Savante, Queens, N.Y.
That's a pretty good comparison, Stelio. There are a lot of similarities between their games. And if you still think Ferrero is a clay-court specialist you likely also think that Andre Agassi wears a neon bandanna and is married to Brooke Shields. Ferrero is still, of course, a half dozen Slams away from equaling Wilander, but given JC's play at the U.S. Open (and on the quasi-fast indoor courts of Madrid last week), you have to consider him a contender at three of the four Majors now.
Although I will take what Jon said this time, I still don't appreciate Jon's attitude towards most of the non-American players
BTW, Vamos Juanqui, please try your best to win Paris.
