Default Did David Ferrer overachieve?

People often say that Daveed would of won a slam in another era but the fact of the matter is Daveed is a minnow basher.He is not as unlucky as people make him out to be.In fact he has been lucky with some easy draws and instances of draws opening up to go with his vulturing of tournaments with the big 4 being absent/unavailable/injured.

He's pretty much exactly as succesfull as he should be imo. He deserved the master even if he was somewhat lucky to get it in the end.

OP is spot on. Of course he overachieved. Anyone who disagrees is a fool and knows nothing about tennis.

He’s still fighting hard and he’s not winning.

Those three titles the Serb give him statistics on the surface than he does, considering he plays the same damn way he does on clay and still wins the title. Slow as fuck grass does that. It's the same for Nadal during 2006-11.

He would have won a RG if Peak Nadal wasn't around. Definitely IMO. I think he fulfilled his potential though, he's an unbelievable athlete and hard worker and alright he's not the most naturally gifted on tour but massive respect to him for working so hard, hopefully he's not finished yet

He's maximised as much as he possibly could with his game, even with help of draws and seedings, what not.

Default Re: Did David Ferrer overachieve?

What's the obsession with putting certain players to different era's and then to dance and run around that and make assumptions?

He did the max. he could get in his era, the only thing that is real, basing his performances mostly on stamina and speed.

Easy to judge player he is, why make it worse and harder by putting him to other era and stuff?

Just leave it as it is, if you are bored then just do other things.
