Re: Better player? - Davydenko or Ferrer
Davy's ball-striking abilities were just phenomenal. He could take shots on-the-rise as well as anybody, generating great angles and taking so much time away from his opponents. His footspeed, all the while, kept him firmly planted on top of the baseline more often than not; agile indeed.
Not one for great serves or netplay, but he was a baseline machine with an oustanding return.
Ferrer over the past couple of years has attempted a similar game by stepping in the court more and going after the ball with his forehand, but it's a lot less polished.
