Djokovic, Delpotro and Murray - who will have the better career?

All three are in the current top 5, along with the Goat duo of Federror and Nadal and are among the youngest of the top ten.
I think if Novak can work on his fitness and tone down the faking part he is more talented and a much higher quality shot maker than the other two and i least dislike him among the three so my vote goes to him.
Edit: In reply to Goldenoldie's question, i would like to clarify that i meant better as in the person who will end up with more slams and as a consequence stand a better chance to earn more prize money and be more remembered after their career ends.

Anyone who disputes any of this is a troll.

There's only one GOAT and that's Roger Federer. Nadal simply doesn't have the drive to be the GOAT

Re: Djokovic, Delpotro and Murray - who will have the better career?

There are many different ways of defining "better" (actually it should be "best" as there are more than two options)
Number of slams
Number of titles
Number of weeks at #1 (or #2 if never #1)
Amount of prize money won
etc etc.

Sorry, but the question is too vague.

Re: Djokovic, Delpotro and Murray - who will have the better career?

Depends how long Federer keeps at the top level IMO. The longer he does, the more likely one of the first two wins this poll with their 1 slam to 0.

If however he does not, then Murray can definitely surpass the other two.

Re: Djokovic, Delpotro and Murray - who will have the better career?

Del Pony clearly has the biggest game of the bunch, it's only a matter of his health and fitness to deliver it at the slams - so my vote goes for the giant argie

Re: Djokovic, Delpotro and Murray - who will have the better career?

Logic would suggest del potro, as when all 3 were 20 he had acheived more than both andy and novak, coupled with the fact his attacking gaming is vastly superior to both aswell. Only thing that can stop him is injuries which have the better of him at the moment.

Murray. He is the least likely to get upset by lower rank players, so he'll gonna reach more later stages of tournaments. The only player that can beat him regularly is Fed, and Fed is getting old. Murray got time on his side. Once Fed start to fade, Murray will start winning slams and be #1.

When Delpo is fit he is the one less likely to get upset. A good attacking player can always trouble Murray in a good day, that doesn't happen as often with Del Potro.

People are talking about Murray only losing to Federer as if Federer is the one who always takes him down at the Slams, but Del Potro has played agaisnt Federer in Slams more often then Murray.

Not to mention del potro beat roger in his first slam final unlike andy, who is yet to take a set from him in grand slam final play.

Re: Djokovic, Delpotro and Murray - who will have the better career?

Djokovic easily. He will win a few more slams at least. His gamje is more potent on all surfaces. Murray is a clown on clay and his game is too weak. Del Potro is a clown on grass and he is about to be replaced by Cilic.

Re: Djokovic, Delpotro and Murray - who will have the better career?

depends how you class success, murray and nole will probably have the more consistent career due to the nature of their steadier games and not being so tall/injury prone.

del potro looks like he might have an up and down career, due to him already being injury prone and the obvious effort his tennis takes out of him.

to conclude i see del potro from here on having the greater highs, but also the lower lows. murray and nole will be steady but maybe always 1 'hot' player better then them at the biggest tournaments.
