I have to say, when it comes down to it, from where I sit, the Unfabulous 5 are Rafa, Murray, Ferrer, Simon, and Monfils on hard courts. Take these 5 out of the mix and you probably wouldn't hear me railing against the modern player. In fact, safe to say, everything I don't like about today's game really boils down to what I don't like about these 5. So this last man standing crap will only live with these 5. And of the 5, Murray and Ferrer are the 2 constants, i.e., not injury prone.
As I said elsewhere, ironically, clay is the one surface that's benefitted most from today's technology. Rafa can dispose of anyone with incredible efficiency on clay. I can watch Rafa on clay all day. But the Unfab 5 really need to pick it up on these slow hardcourts.
Too bad we have to watch them until the end of each tournament lol
I guess, in the end, I've been too critical of today's player throwing them all under the bus when it's really just a handful of bad apples.
