Not if they meet Ferrer in the draw. For DelPo, the evidence is clear. But then, maybe for you it is not about evidence, just favouritism.

The baseline pushing is a massive hindrance to these players if they want to achieve big things in tennis. They have the fight but not the skill.
Wait isn't Monaco the one that has 2-2 against Murray and those matches all happened on big stages not 250's, He has also pushed Djokovic in the last few meetings they have had. Kohli has played 5 more tournaments than Monaco, because his more of a grinder than Monaco, Seppi too played even more events this year, his such a pusher. Well, Granollers grunting is even more unbearable than anything i've heard.

Yea, sure. On paper they seem to be more likely, but in reality only Del Po won 1 slam, all other slams for years now were won by Fedal and recently Nole. Bottom line, your "more likely" means nothing.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

Seems to be building up himself nicely with challengers then as soon as he becomes eligible to compete to more ATP events he gets his ass royally royally...back to challengers for some more then back to ATP events and so forth.

Vulturedull is all that needs to be said here. No other vulture has ever won 11 slams. /thread

That wouldn't qualify as 'vulturing' though, Lorenzi's just a medium/high level Challenger player who actually tries to play ATP events when his ranking allows it. He's not a solid top 100 player really. I don't know but it's just odd to call someone a vulture when he can't even win matches at ATP level consistently. As a matter of fact, kudos to him for actually trying at ATP level when he can get in!

There is no such thing as "vulturing." It's a stupid concept invented by frustrated haters who need to get a life instead of laughing at photo montages of players with a vulture's body...

Ferrer plays a lot, so what? He trains on different surfaces by playing weaker tournaments, gets a few points, then goes on to play major events and always holds his rank in them.
If other players are not happy, let them play as much as he does, and as consistently. The players who are ranked above him are usually the same players who beat him in major tournaments, so there is nothing to complain about. Period.
