Del Potro is 8 years younger, already had surgery and several major injuries and still has achieved considerably more already than Ferrer could ever dream of - that really sums up the chasm there is between the two, which would only be even more gigantic had JMDP not had so much bad luck with injuries.
That's not bad luck, that's his poor forehand technique (wrist injury) and his massive height to weight imbalance that makes him prone to injuries in a sport where you have to change directions quickly, sprint, stop and lunge. For example Raonic injured his hip due to a freak fall, that is what's classified as "bad luck". Poor technique and trying to defend when you are 198cm tall is a recipe for disaster.
