Which of the following guys has the best career (up to now)?

Discuss.

Most of them have quite similar results i.e. Masters series finals, but no title, one or two have a YEC final but no win, whilst a few have a GS SF as their best effort in one of the big ones.

Re: Which of the following guys has the best career (up to now)?

Tough choice, going with Haas. He's been able to beat a lot of good players at their peak, giving Federer a good run for his money a few times.

Ferrer is a possibility as well, made a lot of clay MS finals.

After Nadal beat Monfils at Doha, before AO 2014

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

It has to be Haas or Ferrer. The other guys don't even come close.

Djokovic | Tipsarevic | Querrey

Re: Which of the following guys has the best career (up to now)?

The obvious answer is Ferrer. Haas comes second then Boredo comes third only because of his masters title.

Vulture of course. Despite his non-existing talents, he made millions thanks to easy draws and vulturing the tournaments with weak fields.

Haas and Ferrer are miles ahead of everyone else there. Between them - the answer is Haas.


ROGER FEDERER

Haas for sure. former number 2. if he wasn't a nutcase plus his injuries he could've been a multiple GS champion.

Re: Which of the following guys has the best career (up to now)?

Ferrer has been the most consistent and has better slam results than the rest. 4 SFs, 5 QFs is it?

Haas though has been ranked #2 in the world and he actually has a Masters title and an Olympic Silver medal, so maybe him. One of these two, definitely.

Re: Which of the following guys has the best career (up to now)?

I forgot that Haas had a MS title. Then the answer is obviously him.

I couldn't have agreed more. Despite the fact that both Vulture and Boredo are the least talented players on this list, they've earned the highest prize money which shows how unfair tennis could be.

Re: Which of the following guys has the best career (up to now)?

Ferrer's had his chances to win a TMS (3 times a runner-up) and once a YEC runner-up, so there's consistency there but is it better than Haas's 1 TMS and #2 ranking? I agree those two have a clear edge over the others.

How would you rank the others though?
