Default Compare Almagro and Wawrinka

Both 27, both 6 foot, have the same career high of #9 with their best GS results being multiple QFs.

Both aggressive baseliners, both have amazing single handed backhands and powerful serves.

Both in the shadows of their countrymen and both very prone to mental lapses.

Both are best on clay, Nicolas pips Stan here but Wawrinka is superior on hard.

Head-to-head is 4-3 to Wawrinka (6-3 at all levels), but Almagro won their only GS match (at the 2012 AO)

Almagro has had the better career (way more titles and GS QFs), but Stan has wins over the very top players (Murray at the US Open and Federer at Monte Carlo) and has reached a Masters Series final. Almagro did beat Murray at Roland Garros but before Murray was top 10.

So, three questions:
Who do you like more (and why)?
Who is more talented?
Who will finish with the better career (poll question)?
