Who better? Roddick or Tipsarevic ?

It was put forward as an argument that Tipsy is a better player than Roddick.

Who do you think is a better player, Roddick or Tipsarevic?

Of course Tipsy. The guy never lost a GS final.

But did he ever win one?

Is this another lame attempt to convince people it's better not to make Slam finals so you have a better resume when you retire?

Roddick had the better carreer and will always have. That said... Tipsarevic is better NOW.

No. He never won one. But GS titles are overrated. I never lost a professional tennis match- which makes me a GOAT candidate. Not to mention that Tipsy is friends with Nole. Which makes him a far better player than Roddick. Or Federer for that matter.

H2H is 2-2, however both Tipsy's victories are at slams, so...

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Right now the rankings don't lie.

Over an entire career, it's not even a debate.

Re: Who better? Roddick or Tipsarevic ?

you should have been more specific in the poll OP: who's better right now or who's better carreer wise? In both cases the answer is obvious.

proud Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga fan

Even prouder Rafael Nadull hater
