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

I still believe in Marin. He is the better player among these three IMO.

Dolgopolov by a mile. The other 2 are terrible.

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

Potential/Talent: Dolgo = Gulbis > Cilic.
Mentality: Dolgo > Cilic > Gulbis
Current force on the tour: Dolgo = Cilic > Gulbis.

I think Dolgo will have the most successful career of the 3.

At the moment I would have to say Cilic, he's made the top 10, won quite a few ATP titles and even made a Slam SF.

Dolgopolov. I am a fan of Cilic and strongly dislike Dolgo, but the Ukrainian is the best from these 3

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

Atm i think Dolgopolov has the best form and an interesting style of play. Many players haven't been able to read him through yet. He's only been around realisticaly one (maybe two) year so he has alot to prove in the future.

On the other hand it's clear that by overall careers so far Cilic is best of the 3 - 5 tournaments won, longest near the top, former top 10 player, etc.

Many people forget that he is only 22 years old, just look at how many players have hype around them and they are 19-23 years old and just coming into top 100. He has 159 atp wins and i think that's impressive in his age (for example Dolgopolov has only 38 and you are free to compare any other players that are "future of tennis" atm and compare their number of wins).

Gulbis has big potential but because of his approach to tennis i don't think he will ever be consistently high in rankings. He may do some great run in a masters tournament or a grandslam in his career but by his "head" i'd say it can only happen as an exception not a rule.

Fan list: Cilic, Federer, Coric

Well Ćilić is miles ahead of the other two achievement-wise, but I think Dolgopolov might be a better player than him, definetly has more variety and game-intelligence than. That doesn't mean he'll have a better career though...

I would add:

Turned Pro:
Cilic - 2005
Gulbis - 2004
Dolgopolov - 2006

Dolgo & Gulbis win/loss is about 50/50, Cilic's is a little better. Remember, of the three, Dolgo has had the least amount of time to accomplish things.

Gulbis I think hits the best ball, but Dolgo has the most natural ability.

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

Cilic, IMO, is overrated, always has been, and isn't/won't be much more than top 12 consistently. I don't see special talent when seeing Cilic play. I see a guy with a lot of game, but he doesn't hit the ball as big as guys his height, both off serve and off the ground.
