Ferrer is the real deal, the guy is a stud. I don't know why this is in the former player section. He's still number 4 in the world.
very good Point. the top4 beat him so badly because they are great in defense and offense. they just have a better answer to anything ferrer does.
but against the guys of the second row, even the big hitters he is hanging in well and not only by retrieving (pure retrieving won't win you any matches in modern Tennis) but also by moving them around and taking the offense.
pure hitting or running doesn't hurt, what does hurt him is the combination of both.
