re: Tennis Discussion Thread
Yeah, Ferrer is consistent, which is why i think he'll have a similar year to this one. He's proof that consistency is important in sports. He's not the most talented player, but he gives his all in every match and stays consistent throughout the season. Thats why he's world no.5. There are plenty of people with higher 'peak' levels than Ferrer, but are inconsistent (Tsonga being one of them).
I just think that Del Potro will over take him because i think that Del Po will have some deep slam runs next year, perhaps even win one. Although Ferrer is consistent and a very good player, i don't think he poses as much of a threat at Slams as Del Potro does. Thats why i see Del Potro overtaking him in the rankings next year and finishing inside the top 5.
Ferrer will be there, no doubt, and may have a deep run of his own. I think he can possibly get to the final of RG if he avoids Nadal's (assuming Nadal returns well) half/Quarter. And he'll bag his usual load of 250's and 500's
