Regardless IMO in this case there's no need to break it down surface by surface when Roddick's whole career is clearly superior to Ferrer's by a good margin.

I mean Roddick has 5 slam finals, reached #1 and finished the year in top 10 for almost a decade, Ferrer took forever to win a freakin masters title, there's just no comparison.
There's no contest even on slow HC , just some more facts :

roddick survived younes al ayanoui's brilliance in AO 2003 QF, had a close battle with a resurgent safin in AO 2004, beat an in-form ancic in AO 2007, beat djoker in AO 2009(who retired ), survived a zoning gonzalez in AO 2010 ....

and ferrer ? beat an injured nadal in AO 2011, that's about it

roddick is 38-11 @ the AO with 4 SFs, 2 QFs

ferrer is 28-11 @ the AO with 2 SFs ( wouldn't have reached the 2nd one without a mega-choke from almagro ) , 2 QFs

roddick won miami twice and reached the final of IW in 2010 ..ferrer hasn't made a single final @ either of those 2 masters
