Who is better currently? Lukas Rosol or Ernests Gulbis

I am comparing these two players because they are both medium-aged ballbashers with ugly forehands.

Now, of course everyone is going to say "Gulbis is more talented. Rosol just had a good day." But you can't really measure talent, can you?

Discuss.

Re: Who is better currently? Lukas ROASTol or Ernests GOATbis

This might be the one time Gulbis wins and it's not about hype. When Gulbis gets on a streak, it can last weeks. Rosol is more of a one-match player. Yes, it's great that Lukas won his first title this week but this is the longest stretch he's been hot on the ATP level.

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

Re: Who is better currently? Lukas ROASTol or Ernests GOATbis

This is something that won't get said often, but Gulbis is more consistent.

However, watching both in their prime, Rosol is better. The man just pounds the ball, and he does it so effortlessly. So my vote goes to Lukas

Re: Who is better currently? Lukas ROASTol or Ernests GOATbis

both are useless, overhyped, talentless ball bashers. So I'd say equal
