He was popular for the very wrong reason, the real Brit that came so close but still failed to win Wimbledon, actually even failed to reach the final

this is my order as well.
There's another point of view that he could have achieved far more if he stayed relatively healthy. No one has ever won comeback player of the year more than once and Haas has been in contention in separate years which is absurd. Having said that even with all the injuries he blew a lot of chances in slams (AO 2002, USO 2006, RG 2009) and lost multiple times from 2 sets to love up.

Anyways Henman.
IW wasn't always as slow as it is today.

In the times when the tour had real diversity in surfaces and styles, yes.

Re: Better career: Henman vs Haas vs Ljubicic

100% Henman based on career results and statistics. however! as others have mentioned, Haas was totally unfortunate, rarely do you see a player have so many ups and downs and then still stay on tour as long as he has.....

the truth is Haas probably would have won multiple slams if not for the injuries and health issues throughout what would have been his best hypothetical seasons

of course you can put all the 'woulda, shoulda, couldas' in glass jars and throw them in the dumpster, because it's sort of pointless thought

Henman for sure and Ljubicic is significantly behind both

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Rafael Nadal

Re: Better career: Henman vs Haas vs Ljubicic

I hate to repeat what Haas would have done if not for all the injuries, but that's quite obvious.

Out of those 3 I'd say: Haas>Henman>Ljubicic even though I was big fan of Henman, and he is my favorite retired player.

Re: Better career: Henman vs Haas vs Ljubicic

I would say Henman. Not only because I'm like his biggest fan, but because he will be far more memorable than both when all three careers are done.

Andy Murray, Roger Federer, Stan Wawrinka, Feliciano Lopez, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Tim Henman, Fabrice Santoro, Marat Safin, Patrick Rafter, John McEnroe

Hmm that's debatable. Either all 3 of them will be remembered, or all 3 of them will be forgotten by this new generation of tennis fans.
