The thing people sometimes overlook when considering Andy's record is that most players had a crap awful record against Primerer. The only difference is that Roddick made it to him more. It says something that Miami of this year was the only time they met before a QF.
And consider how he stacked up against Fed in major finals: Agassi, Djokovic, Hewitt, Safin, and Murray have managed to take a grand total of 2 sets in 7 major finals against Federer; Roddick took 4 sets in 4 finals. Only Nadal and Del Po have had better results against Roger in major finals. How many games would Ferrer even manage?
If Andy was a walkover for Fed, a guy like Ferrer is a nap time.
Should that happen, the outcome would be 24-0
Fully agree about the rest

you should focus on someone like berdych reaching the top 5 (briefly), because he's done bugger all for 7 out of the last 8 years
if you wanna moan about vultures, talk about tipsarevic or monaco
i prefer del potro to ferrer as you well know, but ferrer has been far and away the better player between the two this year
results don't lie
Berdych has never been ranked in the top 5.
Look at Ferrer's record against the Big 3: Federer's lapdog/slave, Nadal's bitch, Nole's pigeon
2012 is his career year and he still hasn't managed to notch a single victory or win and took a single set against these guys in 8 matches (helped by the wind against Nole in New York), he's a complete non factor in the late stages of big events.
