I have mine.
Let's assume you are correct and Ferrer is indeed more talented than Del Potro - a barbaric assumption, but just for argument's sake.

In that case, his so-called work ethic must be immensely overrated. I mean how can he have achieved less than a player less talented than himself, 8 years younger who already had surgery? Something's gotta give here: either your evaluation of their relative talents is completely wrong, Ferrer's famous work ethic is overrated beyond belief or the Spaniard is just the unluckiest tennis player (or Delpo the luckiest) ever.

Oh, let's all use Mark Lenders logic then. Here are some of your pearls of wisdom;

1). Hitting the ball as hard as you can, (no matter how many errors you spray) must mean you are insanely talented, because it is the opposite of pushing.

2). Serve-bots are saving tennis.

3). Players who win any events other than Slams are vultures.

4). If Del-Potro lost any match it must be due to an injury he has fully recovered from for at least 2 years now. Healthy Pony never loses, ever.

5). Cilic is more talented than Murray.

I think rather than comparing the 2, we should talk about hand knitted baseball caps.

Only one of those 5 points is true.

Lenders will never come to his senses when it comes to Delpo and Ferrer.

Ferrer has 17 titles, Delpo has 13, hope that bubble you are living in with those green imp's that keep telling you lies is nice.
