For all that they have accomplished so far, then Nalbandian.

I never knew there was an animal species made up of these two.

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: Who will be considered as a better player: Davydenko vs Nalbandian

If neither wins a major... Davydenko I would hope. Nothing should downgrade a player more than wasting their talent, which is exactly how I feel about Mardy Fish. Had Nalbandian tried to be anything more than a glorified journeyman, this thread wouldn't exist. Davydenko has done the best he could with the game he has. Nalbandian used to, a long time ago.

Power in my time.

If both their careers ended tomorrow, Nalbandian easily. People around here have short term memories.

Re: Who will be considered as a better player: Davydenko vs Nalbandian

The answer is clearly Davydenko. Nikolay has made more out of less. David has accomplished much less out what he could have. David will be considered the better talent, but Nikolay the better player, the one who made the most out of his game, the one with more dedication, while David will be known as one of the bigger failures in tennis history.

They both like Murray are GS less losers

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

It's not clear at all. I consider Nalbandian more accomplished given a GS final.

And pretty much anyone will consider David a horrible failure that he hasn't even made a GS final since that surprise Wimbledon run when he was a young kid. He hasn't even gotten to the final since, and hasn't made too many deep runs either. People won't remember David as a great player, they will remember him as a great talent and someone who did possible the least with his talent than anyone ever in history.

That doesn't change the fact that Kolya hasn't made a final. It's a sin that Nalbandian doesn't have a few slams, but it's still better than semis. They are more or less equal further down the line, so unless the famous Roddick argument of years in top 10 or top 5 is invoked, Nalby has accomplished more, however inconsistent he might be.

Nalbandian - because he was more of a threat to most top players
