That, we all know, which is why it's puzzling that he would be in the top 5. In short I'm inferring responsibility to the current conditions. As valiant as David Ferrer is, I find it slightly odd that such an uncreative method of playing can garner for a player such a consistently high rank. A player who really does have less weapons in his 'strokes' than probably most of the top 20, and maybe even the top 40 or so.
