Associate two players together?

Whether it be because of nationality, ranking, career achievements, style, height, rivalry or a combination, I can't help but associate some players with some other players.

Examples include:

Cilic-del Potro (both 6'6" and five days apart in age),

Murray-Djokovic (one week apart in age, career high number two, 5 Masters 1000s, first slam final at US Open),

Ferrer-Robredo (nationality, less than a month apart in age, similar career weight with almost identical prize money),

Isner-Querrey (nationality and similar achievements and time of breakthroughs),

Clement-Schuettler (veterans, out the blue Grand Slam final at the Australian Open, in and out of the top 100 in last 5 years),

Corretja-Moya (nationality, played in Grand Slam final and Masters Cup final),

Hewitt-Ferrero (all the rage at the beginning of the century).

Do you ever associate two (or more) players together, and if so who?

Re: Associate two players together?

Del potro and santoro

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.
