Ivanisevic was more talented, also grew up on clay which helps, but Roddick worked harder and overall made more in his carreer imo.

Talent = Goraaaan~

Consistency = Roddick

Roddick would have been a multi-slam winner if not for Roger. He was certainly not a mug he's painted out to be these days.

Goran vs Roddick of 03-05 is very close. Goran vs Roddick of 06-onwards is not close.

Goran also had good and bad periods, just tougher to remember

Roddick of 03-05 had a technically excellent and powerful FH. Roddick past 2006 had a loopy pushed sort of forehand for the most part.

Judging by the poll it seems most people voted for the best player instead of the most talented.

Although I think Goran is also a better player, I can see why other people don't. And the average MTF'er didn't even follow tennis when Goran played, lol.

I think Roddick has a slightly higher win percentage at the US Open but had more finals at Wimbledon.

Ivanisevic by far. No weak shots in the repertoire, even his backhand was good. Unfortunately, the guy was born for circus, not the tennis court.

Ivanesivic was not more talented than Andy Roddick, even Goran's best weapon, the serve, is not necessarily better than ROddick's. Roddick better at net, better groundstrokes, etc. certainly better mindset. Goran had a great game for Wimbledon but not as much elsewhere hence all the finals. if you asked who was more deserving of a Wimbledon title, I would say Roddick, and unlike Goran he didn't even get one! I gurantee if Roddick had played in the 90s he would have snagged a Wimbledon title. Federer is just something unparrelled to have on the opposite side of the court in that sort of occasion
Oh dear Are you fucking serious?

Goran's backhand return was one of the most underrated shots of the 90s. His forehand was more explosive, but his backhand more reliable and consistent. He was a natural athlete and was an excellent footballer, basketball player and cross country runner during his youth. His volleys were mediocre for 90s standards and he wasn't an out and out serve-volleyer at all, but all players not named Agassi thought that they had to regularly come to the net to stand a chance at Wimbledon in the 1990s

I wonder if he got lazy with the rest of his game once he saw what grass and the fast indoor courts could do to his serve. In the early 90s especially, there were many matches on slower surfaces where he was comfortable rallying seemingly all day long before suddenly firing a winner.

Why the word "talent" is being used to describe 2 servebots?

I never thought I'd praise Duck's game but in relation to Goran's servebot and erratic ball bashing, he seems like a complete player (which he was not). Goran really benefited from the very fast courts and shows why today's courts are a step in the right direction. You have to be a COMPLETE athlete to win today. End of discussion.

Goran for sure. Andy had a better luck though, being American, he got much better coaching and everything that came with it. Most of Andy's titles were on US soil where he always got evening matches while most others were roasting during hot and humid summers.

. You're telling me Goran couldn't have gotten top-level coaching if he tried? Come on. And Andy loved playing in the heat, just like Andre. Open organizers gave him night matches cause he drew huge crowds.
