Agreed. He has had the misfortune to play in the same era as 3 of the greatest and most consistent tennis players the world has ever seen. They are like a solid, granite wall against all the hopes and expectations of the lower-ranked players. Ferrer, the most consistent of them all, has been their chief victim. Had he been lucky enough to play in a weaker era he would probably have at least one Major and a few more Masters titles under his belt by now.

Seems a tad ironic that you would want to meld him with a player who never even won ONE Major!
