It is iffy at best if Ferrer should even be considered better overall than Berdych or Tsonga when both guys reached a slam final and in general have bigger wins than he does, and all 3 have only 1 Masters, and all reached the top 5 but none the top 3 as far as rankings go I believe. That Ferrer is the best of those players right now, doesnt mean he is overall the best of them. He definitely isnt, and might still be the weakest of them overall at this point.
I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Del Potro win more overall titles than Ferrer. He's at 14 and he's only 24, while Ferrer has six more and is six years older. It remains to be seen if he'll win another slam, but I'd be surprised if he doesn't at least win a Masters.
