Retires at the age of 30 (not 33) with no big injuries. I would say the era was weak.
Ferrer's won just two sets in the five GS semis he's played, and has just one win over the Big 4 in GS play. Meanwhile, Roddick has beaten Nadal, Djokovic, and Murray at the majors, the latter two after they had achieved top 5 status.
