re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Fed Cup, Davis Cup, and Hopman Cup. Has any other country ever won all three before? If so, it couldn't have been recently.

And what I meant about Ferrer is that he's not only ranked #5, he's also clearly the 5th best player. Some people I know seem to think he's only ranked that high because he picks a lot of tournaments with weak fields to get easy ranking points. But as a fan of his, it's good to see him winning so much against good players like Berdych.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

It's the first time thats happened as far as i know. USA won the Fed and Davis cup in 1990.

Ferrer is the number 5 atm. But i think that will change soon, because Del Potro is coming back to his best. Del Potro will be no.5 by the end of next year in the rankings i reckon.

Probably, but it won't be easy for Del Potro to overtake Ferrer.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Ferrer is more consistent of the two. But Del Potro is more capable of beating the top four.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

I don't think Del Potro will pass Ferrer next year. Ferrer is actually on the verge of passing up Nadal. But I expect Ferrer to start declining the year after due to age, and Del Potro to peak at the same time. Del Potro should pass him up easily at that point.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Ferrer has quite a lot of points to defend next year, so there's a question as to whether he can do that. Del Potro doesn't have as much points to defend.

I think Del Po will have some deep slam runs, and win some titles next year at least. While Ferrer will have a good year, but not as good as this one

The thing I like about Ferrer is he's never been in a slump unlike the other players he aways peforms consistently every tournament.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

It's amazing how consistent he is. He always brings his best in every single game.

He is a fighter and he never gives up, that's what I like and respect about him.

Hoping he has a great year next year.

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
