    rate the following players in order of greatness/best career

    Grand slam victories are cool but if they don't end up with a title they loose a lof of meaning. I prefer a Davydenko who won several titles beating combination of big 3 players than Berdych who defeated Federer a few time in slams.

    I agree with that logic too but only to a point. Davydenko's titles quality more than make up for the bigger total haul of Ferrer, but not Nalbandian, because the difference in total haul is too great, and winning titles is important.

    Still these weapons are not sharp enough when a good opponents show up with sharp weapons, they are enough when they show up with dull enough (which is often enough). His H2H against players like Berdych, Wawrinka, Nishikori, is quite poor.

    Gonzalez peak is obviously the AO 2007. His QF and SF against Nadal and Haas were fantastic, but he couldn't maintain his level in the final, probably too much pressure. I think one tournament is not enough to call it a true peak though, so although I love him I wouldn't rank him highly. A peak...

    Tsonga playing Challengers

    What about Gonzalez-Nadal in 2007? Nadal was very unlucky to play Gonzalez and Tsonga in AO 2007 and 2008. They were having the tournament of their life and only blinked during the finals, too much pressure.

    Tsonga playing Challengers

    It makes sense if you don't know that tennis existed before the famous weak era where every weakest tennis player ever were active.

    rate the following players in order of greatness/best career

    1. Davydenko: 21 titles including 1 WTF and 3 M1000 with several victories over combinations of Djokovic, Nadal, Federer. 2. David Ferrer: 27 titles including 1 M1000. Slightly better record in slams than Davydenko but lack bug victories over top players. 3. David Nalbandian: 11 titles including...

    Ferrer is the most consistent of them all by far but Davydenko has M1000 and WTF with victories over combination of Nadal, Djokovic, Federer.

    David Ferrer vs R. Nadal on Pista Rafa Nadal

    If he believed he could still reach masters 1000 final he woulnd't retire. He won't go deep, probably not deep enough to meet Nadal.

    Which mens slam winner since 2000 has the weakest forehand

    Wow the short memory. You don't hold Sampras in high esteem do you?

    David Ferrer vs R. Nadal on Pista Rafa Nadal

    I would rather he play his last match against Nadal than against journeyman.

    Kramer didn't rate Ken, Hoad and Laver highly?

    David Ferrer: "In the end, all you have left is the person".

    Great interview. Another one of my favorite player to retire. Ferrer is the best role model in tennis. Always had the right attitude and mindsets, despite his shortcomings.

    Time to revisit Rosewall's losses in major finals...

    Distortion by the medias/ruling organisation is an important component and can strongly influence the perception of a player. Lendl suffered from that, Djokovic too, although to a lesser extend. At the end Ken suffer from the importance given to peak play over consistent play/longevity. It...
