But Vilas won grand slams in that era
Vitas, not Vilas ....
First poster I see who is even more clueless than you, never thought that be possible
Well there is also TMF but that is a lost cause
typical BS from you ... he may have read it in a hurry mistaking vitas for vilas ... but whatever suits your boat :roll:
Ferrer is like Dibbs or Ferreira, just a couple more semis at slams but that is all
More like Kodes I think. Not so lucky though. It wouldn't be hard for him to win an event were only 20% of the top players are present. How wait, he beat a better field than that each month.
Both have different balls, one was born to win and the other is an honest trier.a modern Solomon just that the equipment makes him look better,,,,
Ferrer beat a thougher field to win Auckland than Kodes to win the Mickey Mouse Wimby.
ferrer is different from these guys... he owns nearly everyone ranked below him.
Ok just tell O' Groove who has not noticed
Ferrer is Mickey Mouse himself
Each decade has had its iconic moonballer
Solomon in 70
Carlsson in 80
Chang in 90
Hewitt in 2000
And now Ferrer
Ferrer's not a moonballer, idiot.
Really dude none of these guys except Sollie is a Moonballer.......
Exactly......only similar issue is that neither had a "real" weapon.......main reason maybe why they have not one a big one.
Sorry but the AO in 77 was a joke (as it was from mid 70s until the early 80s......no better than a top 500 event today. When you have guys like Vilas, Alexander and John Lloyd making GS grass finals you are not major league.
well...ever saw Carlsson play???? worse than Solly, I tell you.
The real merit of Ferrer is that he is the journeymen that has gotten most far.That, I´ll give him full credit.
The immediately previous generation's Ferrer was probably Davydenko.
Their profiles are pretty similar.
Davy: 21 (including 3 Masters (3 finals))
Ferrer: 20 (including 1 Masters (4 finals))
Significant Slam Results
Davy: 4 SF, 6 QF
Ferrer: 5 SF, 5 QF
Davy: YEC title!
Ferrer: Davis Cup titles!
Basically, they both did everything you could ask of a pro except win a Slam.
