I still think Dimi is the more talented of the two. But Rafa is simply a way smarter/tactical player. Rafa could beat Dimi if he was 50 years old.
Isn't tennis IQ and tactical ability part of being talented? I'm sorry, but you can't tell me someone who hasn't been to a slam final is more talented than someone who has won 16 Grand Slam titles. Sure, Dimitrov has more variety in his shotmaking, but there's more to talent than your ability to make certain shots.
