2012 has been the best year of Ferrer's career.  He made it to the quarterfinals of all four Majors for the first time.  Most players - even the best ones - are out of the sport by age 30 or at least coming to grips with the fact that their best days on a tennis court are behind them.  Who knows what's in store for Ferrer going forward?  A Slam title seems a stretch but a final perhaps?  I would say the French is his best bet.
