Re: Better Career: Safin vs Rafter vs Kafelnikov

Kafelnikov. Gold at the Olympics is big no matter how you try to spin it. Not to mention 26 titles and the fact he was a solid doubles player as well.

Ajde.

Better Career: Safin vs Rafter vs Kafelnikov

Poll Options updated.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Better Career: Safin vs Rafter vs Kafelnikov

Kafelnikov won 2 slams and reached the top spot but also won Olympic gold, so he'd get my vote.

Re: Better Career: Safin vs Rafter vs Kafelnikov

Kafelnikov didn't win a single masters 1000 title . this fact takes a lot from his achievements for me

Kafelnikov.
He's the least talented of the trio though.

+1

but the difference is not large, as for the talent it's bigger.

As for the Olympic Gold, I didn't even pay attention to that in that time I never paid attention to tennis in the Olympics (there are so many other sports where it's the most important competition in the meantime) until recent players talked so much about this
