Besides Djokovic, Nadal and Federer whos is the most consistent player on tour?

We all know that these 3 players are always more likely to reach the semis than the others. No matter how well they are playing at that moment, they are always the ones to fear.

Besides them, who is the most regular and consistent player?

Honestly, I have no idea. I wouldn't put my money on any player besides those 3.

For example Nalbandian is the king of irregularity..

Any thoughts?

Nalbaldian is the Mary Pierce of ATP tour up, down, up, down,...
Beside the Top Three: Nobody

Ferrer put together a fairly consistent record last year. so far this year, Roddick has lost only 3 matches. he also has 2 titles.

Roddick- he gets criticised a lot and often is quite fortunate to win some matches, but he is nearly always at the business end of tournaments.

he lost something like 27 matches last year. lost in the first or the second round in several tournaments. that is not consistency.

I wouldn't say Roddick is consistent this year; 'only 3 losses' Nalbandian only has 3 losses, 1 title and one runner up but he's barely consistent.

The answer to this question is Llodra. :worship:

i am expecting a big tournament here from Nalby. there is no way he should have lost that match to Fish.

he had him. should have just served that damn match out.

I would have to say Roddick. He usually goes deep at every slam (except the French) and does decent everywhere else (usually).

seiously though davy consistantly makes it to the later rounds of the big tournaments even if he rarely makes finals. The others on the list only have the points from a few good tourneys although ferrer and roddick are fairly consistant as well

ohhh I was about to say the same thing. :rolleyes:
If you take a look at the end-of-the-year rankings Nalbandian seems quite consistent at being no.9 but in fact he isn't. Most of the guys in the top ten have one or two good performances in a Grand Slam (ferrer, Gasquet, Davydenko) or in the masters series (Nalbandian)but this is not all year long. Roddick doesn't fit my notion of consistency because he still sucks during the clay season.

Doesn't take a lot of thought process for this one.

Look at the rankings. The player who is 4th will give you the answer.

Nalbandian!!!
03-25-2008, 01:16 PM
look to the player who had been top ten in last 5 consecutive years.

Ferrer. Even though he's had a couple of unexpected losses lately, he usually always wins when he's expected to. Of course, the one lower ranked guy who seems to have his number consistently is the guy he might meet in an early round in Miami: Verdasco.

Yes, if it's consistency over the long-haul, it's Nalbandian. But on a match by match basis, as a fan he makes me a nervous wreck.

No. That will give you the answer as to who ammased the 4th largest number of ATP points in the last 52 weeks. That doesn't prove greater consistency.

Roddick probably is most consistent of other players.

Ferrer is the name I had in my head when I opened this thread. :)

I also voted for ferrer.

Still, I think it is hard say. No one is really consistent and regular.. They all tend do dissapoint us at a certain point.

Wanted to vote for Roddick (for sure) but accidently click on Davydenko :p

davydenko is not consistent, he is in top 10 only because he plays much more tournaments than others in top 10 :lol:

Deshna
03-25-2008, 07:38 PM
looking at the rating I would say Ferrer is more consistent than Russian. David played 5 tourneys less but just 70 points behind Nikolay.

Who do you think are the best players at closing out victory from a winning position in matches , and who you can rely on to play close to their best and not throw away matches easily? I would say:
1 Nadal
2 Federer
3 Roddick
4 Hewitt
Murray, Karlovic, Djokovic, and Wawrinka are getting there

djokovic is already there , but Nadal is way above anyone else.

How many times does nadal lose after winning the first set? ...

Djokovic is still not as reliable as Federer or Nadal imo, although he is definitely becoming more so.

I would argue that the most reliable are those who'll get themselves out most consistently out of sticky situations. Some of the names would remain, but you'd need to seriously rethink.

Seriously Davydenko is one of the most inconsistent players, at the top of the game.
Looking at 2007's results he lost 10 matches to players ranked outside the top 50.

Compare that to:

Federer 2
Nadal 2
Djokovic 1
Ferrer 3
Roddick 3
Murray 3

Nalbandian 5
Gasquet 7
Blake 10

I think thats illustrates a point.

Not Ferrer either. He can have some very strange defeats from time to time.....particularly away from the clay.

I cannot believe Nalby is even a choice in the poll. The man will win the Masters on one day and lose 5 cakewalks in the next months. Consistency shouldn't be about retaining the ranking, but consistency of play.
