Cilic has been the best thus far but I he has peaked. Dolgo has a good ways to go before peaking.

Re: Who Is The Better Player? Cilic or Dolgopolov or Gulbis?

I got scared when I cast my vote in this morning. There was like 10, 10, and then my lone vote for Gulbis. Of course, if we go by rankings, past accomplishment, it should go to Cilic. But, I just think Gulbis is the best ball-striker out of the 3 and has a serve that potentially is the deadliest of the 3. Unfortunately, he comes and goes and we only get to see that form in patches.

Just on technique and ball-striking ability, I have to say ernests.

Cilic has had the better career but Dolgo was a late bloomer and could well be the better player from now on. Or fade away like many before him.

Re: Who Is The Better Player? Cilic or Dolgopolov or Gulbis?

As far as I'm concerned, Dolgopolov has the most talent and the greatest variety of the three, but Cilic would be the safer bet given his past achievements which are light years ahead of the other two.

Re: Who Is The Better Player? Cilic or Dolgopolov or Gulbis?

Cilic has the greatest potential in terms of his game - when playing well (i.e. not like a basket case mentally) he is very hard to beat even by the best in the game. His game is similar to Pony but he lacks Delpo's mental strength. His lack of mental toughness will severely impede his career.

Dolgo is the strongest mentally and is full of heart but has the most limited game and hence probably the least potential.

Gulbis has everything except the desire so of the 3 he is the most limited and will have the least successful career.

I disagree. Do variety, footspeed and netplay not count for anything?

Gulbis is the least talented if you ask me. He's only good at one thing.

dolgo is the more complete player of them and is not a mug unlike the other 2.

This. Dolgo is talented and will achieve great things (masters wins, top 10 and possibly a slam), Mugbis is a headcase ball basher who doesn't even care about the game, despite whatever talent he might have. He's a rich kid, content to fall back on daddy's money should his tennis career fail and thus he lacks motivation. Mugrin is just an all-around clown. Disgraceful serve for his height, ugly groundstrokes, awful mentality and complete lack of plan B. Always looks stoned while on court. Zero intensity even when winning. He's a mug and will always remain a mug, his fluke AO semi and a few MM titles will be a highlight of his career.

Cilic is much better than those two.

For me Gulbis. Just lacking the will to win recently.

Never ever give up

Voted for Dolgo but I hope Gulbis idiot will get his shit together because I really think he can do a lot of good things on Tour, he is still young and tbh I can understand him... he simply gives a fuck about tennis atm... Gulbis = Golubev = Haase... all of them are very very talented and it would be a shame if they fuck things up at this age...
