Default Re: Who's Better - Tsonga or Ferrer?

Tsonga is much better. In 2008 he looked like a future multiple slam winner. Many experts including the infamous Wilander saw him as a new top star and possible world number 1. Injury derailed Tsonga. Before that everything was pointing upwards

Ferrer has never been close to those heights. He is 30 now and has yet to reach a GS final. Every tournament where he goes deep it mostly shows a lack of players with weapons that can play attacking tennis without turning to UE machines.

Ferrer is a excellent gatekeeper that always will require a quality player to beat and a player of the very highest quality to have a good H2H against (and a player of surreal quality to never lost at all vs him, like Federer)

Tsonga on the other hand has weapons deluxe. Powerful serve, deadly net game, brutal groundstroke power. His problem is that he hits too many errors on bad days just like other prime offensive players with a powergame like Berdych/Soderling/JMDP

Default Re: Who's Better - Tsonga or Ferrer?

this is one of them how do you define better ones. ferrer is better when it comes to being consistent and having the steadier career. tsonga has the higher peaks and probably slightly more effective game when he is firing, but he also has lower lows and cant touch the consistency of ferrer.

Ferrer. The ATP calendar permits Tsonga to have better results.

Jas, maybe you need to be a little more specific next time man. They're thinking too much of the present.

They are not thinking of the present, since the present shows Tsonga as the world no.5 and Ferrer about to lose no.6 to Berdych.

They are just not thinking at all. Or maybe they thought the question was "Who is better at winning Mickey Mouse clay tournaments?"

Pics must've slept with Mark's wife or something, he hates the guy even more than Start da Banned hated Fed. Kind of pathetic really.

Voting for Ferrer because I like him more and because it will annoy Mark Lenders

Yes, but Tsonga is playing awful tennis at the moment while Ferrer is sort of doing a bit better right now. Tsonga's ranked higher now because he's made up ground at the start of the year after the start of last years crap results. And that helps because since he's ranked high, no matter how shit your playing, you can get past low-ranked opponents in the opening few rounds. Ferrer shows he's been consistent comparing from last year around this time. But he's in no way better than Tsonga overall. But I will say that at this current moment, based on form, Ferrer is the better player right now.

The real question is for the posters, "Will they stop being delusional?"

Pics?

And no, he didn't sleep with my wife. But it was my baby son he attacked at Miami during his match against Fish

And yeah, it isn't exactly news that people are only voting for him because they like him better and not because of any objective reasons.

Neither of them has had any injuries, Tsonga has just been more consistent than Ferrer over the past year.

Tsonga is a greater player than Ferrer in terms of achievements and his level of play is also higher, especially peak level.
Tsonga has a bunch of points from great Wimbledon run and such, he obviously has not been as consistant as David and crashes out much more than Ferrer. I can't believe you are trying to argue against the one HUGE HUGE strong point for David

Even if you take the Wimbledon points off, Tsonga would still be ahead of Ferrer, even if only slightly.

And do feel free to check their ranking breakdown; you'll notice that they have about the same number of early exits. In a few weeks, barring an absolutely disastrous clay season, Tsonga will have more ranking points than Ferrer had at any point of his career.
