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

cilic has already reached his potential and will most likely be bouncing in and out of the top 20 from now on. dolgo is talented but his game is very volatile as you can see him hit a string of genius winners followed by a string of terrible UEs. it's hard for him to be a consistent top 10 unless his flashes of brilliance become more consistent. gulbis is actually the most complete player out of all of them and has the most potential, but is a mental midget and total headcase. if gulbis had raonic's mental strength he could be top 5 for sure.

Cilic plays like shit on HC, and also on clay. He will never ever be as good as he was last year. Surprise effect is gone, just like for Tsonga (who now blames injuries for his defeats instead of seeing the truth).
Dolgopolov is the more talented by far, and he knows how to make "winners", a very rare occurence in today's tennis.

Marin is the underrated player between these 3. He will end up with better a career than both. Mark my words.

Dolgo leading the poll only because he has more fangirls/fanboys.

Dolgopolov and Gulbis are more talented than Cilic but will always be inconsistent.

Cilic I can see actually become a consistent player one day, so I say he's the better of the 3.

Right now Cilic is the best of these 3 and it's not even close.

The one with the most potential though is Gulbis I would say, since power is more important than variety these days. This suits Ernest.

Dolgo is talented as well though and has the most enjoyable game for me personally. However he suffers a bit from the Monfils syndrome: if he can entertain the crowd, then he is content. He does not always focus on winning.

I didn't say that.

Cilic doesn't have either a forehand or backhand you'd put in a top 5 of active players. Hence why he isn't going to go much higher than maybe top 8.

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

Cilic duh . Dolgo has had a nice few years, but before that was really irrelevant. And to include Gulbis on this list is really an insult to Cilic.

Career-wise Cilic (8 titles, one GS semi and five Ro16)
Current level Cilic. He beat Dolgo in Umag.

Gulbis, by the way, has a negative career win-loss record.

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

Gulbis is by far the most talented, so much potential there...

Dolgo is kind of overrated with his trickster style, Cilic is the best of them because he lives up to his somewhat limited potential.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.
