Tipsarevic, Simon, and Almagro- who is the best?

Who is the best? Who has the most talent/potential? Who has had the best career? Who do you think will end up with the best career?

Re: Tipsarevic, Simon, and Almagro- who is the best?

Tipsarevic has 3 career titles, all 250's and has reached a career high of number 8. Best result in majors is 1 QF and 3 other fourth rounds. Best result at masters series is 2 semis and 2 quarters. Career record of 224-178 (.557), Slams 37-34 (.521), Masters Series 36-35 (.507), and against top 10 is 14-36 (.280).

Simon has 10 career titles, including 1 500 event and has a career high of number 6. Best result in majors is QF and three other fourth rounds. Best result at masters series is 1 final, 2 semis, and five quarters. Career record of 253-174 (.593), Slams 39-26 (.600), Masters Series 66-51 (.564) and vs. top 10 17-41 (.293)

Almagro has 12 career titles, including 2 500 titles at Acapulco and has a career high of number 9. He has made 3 QF at majors and 3 other fourth rounds. He has made 1 SF and 7 other quarters at masters events. He has a career record of 276-181 (.604), Slams 44-32 (.579), Masters Series 58-52 (.527), and top 10 13-42 (.236).

Based on this, Tipsarevic is clearly the least accomplished player so it's between Almagro and Simon. Almagro is excellent on clay so he has a lot of 250 clay titles and three QF's at the French but his overall record at Slams, Masters Series, and against the top 10 are worse than Simon and he has a lower career high. It's close but I'd give a slight edge to Gilles as having the best career so far because he's had success on all surfaces including a F at an indoors masters event, SF on clay masters, and QF at a hardcourt major. Almagro has a sub .500 record on all surfaces other than clay.

I don't see this order changing very much, they're all around the same age and all playing at around the same level currently so I think Gilles will end up with the best career.

As for who has the most talent/potential, probably Tipsarevic purely from his strokes but mental strength is also a key aspect of being a tennis player and he's struggled at times in his career with this aspect.

Gilles Simon-Roger Federer

Gilles is marginally the better player but Tipsy has more upside.

Until he shot off his big mouth, Simon was the only one of these three I could tolerate.

Mugro has RG Finalist potential, whereas I don´t see the other two mugs doing something big like that.
In regards to talent, Mugro is also superior.

You think Almagro has RG finalist potential? He hasn't even made a masters final on clay.

Simon. It's just too bad he's a disgusting pushing clown.

Re: Tipsarevic, Simon, and Almagro- who is the best?

Tipsarevic has also Davis Cup and 2 World Team Championships (IMO that should count, for example this year in WTC he won all his matches and beat Kohli and Berdych, same as Stuttgart when he beat Monaco and Bellucci, but the other 1 counts, the 1st one doesn't). That said, Mugro and Simon still have more titles and better career overall, but Tipsy could catch up with 1 or 2 big results.

Current level: Tipsy>Mugro>Simon
Better career: Simon>Mugro>Tipsy
Talent: Tipsy>Mugro>Simon

Djokovic | Tipsarevic | Querrey

Re: Tipsarevic, Simon, and Almagro- who is the best?

now that tipsy is playing so well he could definately overtake them both because in terms of raw talent he is the most talented of the 3.

Re: Tipsarevic, Simon, and Almagro- who is the best?

As long as he doesn't open his mouth, it's Simon. Has best game of these three as well.

Monaco - Del Potro - Nadal - Wawrinka - Robredo - Simon - Berdych - Dimitrov - Chardy

Re: Tipsarevic, Simon, and Almagro- who is the best?

If the question is career, I'd say Simon. He does have a Masters final.

Tipsarevic is the one most likely to improve his career standing. Due to Davis Cup, he has the lasting legacy that the other two don't have.

Almagro easily sweeps up these weak 250 and 500 clay events. He'd be even better at that if he ever figures out a way to beat Ferrer (it doesn't seem right for anyone to be David's pigeon).

Andy Murray: 2012 Olympic gold and silver medalist. US Open Champ. Wimbledon champ. Never been prouder of him.

The Brian Baker Story. Proof that truth is stranger than fiction... until Hollywood buys the rights and proceeds to keep screwing the script up.

Tipsarevic is the best and has the most weapons. Simon is boring as hell and Almagro is a very redutable player on clay but outside of it he's not that good
