Yeah... how many weeks has Tipsy been in the top five again? Did he finish the year #1 yet?

And by transitional period, do you mean like now?

"better" mentally? Roddick but he hasn't beaten a decent player since 2010 so
you re wrong he has beaten tipsarevic en route to his memphis title and now we all know that tipsi is better than andy
and he beat ferrer this year and IMO ferrer is more than a decent player

And by Tipsy ? That's the answer

Re: Who better? Roddick or Tipsarevic ?

its doubtful that janko would be as accomplished as roddick even with better mentality. maybe had he grown up elsewhere and been groomed or maybe its the size aspect, although he may have bigger or smaller game than roddick depending how you take it. still 5 slam finals seems little steep.

Tennis wise:

Now - Tipsarevic is all peaking. Roddicks hourglass is spitting dust.

Overall - Roddick and all those successes.

Personality wise:

Intelligence - Tipsarevic is a very thoughtful articulate philosophical person. Roddick is a Nebraskan loudmouth.

Looks - Tipsarevic has manly facial hair. Roddick shaved his legs.

Tipsarevic takes this by a whopper of a margin.

Actually it's great example how "talent" is insanely overrated on the board. "Talented" players should hoard slams by the default almost. Not sure why everybody is infatuated with talent that much; for years (probably even today) in Serbian press/forums, Tipsy was the "talented one", while Nole was the "hard-working one".

Anyone who doesn't agree with the statement that Tipsy is a 'better' player than Roddick is obviously a Fedtard.

Roddick, with his one dimensional skills, managed to make more slam finals than Tips would probably make in his entire career. It's the results that matter. You can say that someone like Dimitrov or whomever has more talent than Roddick, but so what? Is he more dangerous? Obviously not. What has Tips done in his career to make him better or more dangerous than Roddick? Taking Fed to 5 sets in AO 2008? He didn't win that match, did he?
I have yet to see Tipsy win a GS title, win about 30 other titles, grab the ATP #1 ranking and stay in the top ten for about a decade, but I guess that's because I'm a 'Fedtard'.

Maybe the OP could amend the thread to say "Peak Roddick vs Peak Tipsarevic" to ease the confusion.
