You honestly believe Ferrer has a good net game
I don't like repeating myself, but I've seen enough of Ferrer to call him defensive player. The only attacking thing about him is that he has a feel for deep balls returned. Unlike Simon(another defensive player) who puts balls in awkward and weird places.
But thats too far away from being aggressive or point dictator.
Nadal is aggressor but not offensive minded player. Sometimes thats a huge difference. You simply can't put him alongside offensive minded players like Haas, Blake, Federer, Berdych, Soderling, Tsonga etc etc.
Nadal does dictates the point with his ultra mega top spin, but that doesn't necessarily make other to go defensive.
Nadal will wait for the opportune moment to hit you with a huge fh winner. Thats not called offensive minded, thats called tactically outsmarting opponent 'til he cracks.
The sad thing is, that respectful game is no where to be seen at this RG.
