I cannot understand these threads where a top-5 player is deemed a "victim" because there are better players in the world. People seem to lose perspective on just how great it is to be a top-5 guy (just as they lost perspective on Roddick, declaring his career a disappointment despite something like 9 years in the top-10). Ferrer is quite a good player but he's not a world-beater, and his record seems commensurate with his talent.
