Nalbandian reached all 4 GS SFs too and in a time when there were specialists that made it tougher on each surface. That's an impressive achievement.

Agreed that is an impressive achievement. Some of those slam semi losses though were not so good. Losing to Baghdatis was a giant missed opportunity for Nalby and quitting against Fed at RG as well. Nalbandian at his absolute best is better than Davy. When they are both at their normal levels I'm not so sure.

Very close in achievements. Nalbandian's higher level at his very best (with his ability to beat the very top players also at their peak) tips it in his favour.

Denko has beaten every top player except Federer. Would be nice if he could do it at least once. Otherwise his unfair reputation as a MM player will hold.

Nalbandian has won something of historical importance.
Davydenko not.

But even Gaudio, a far weaker player than both, has won such a thing.
Davydenko has now 18 title, 3 Masters Series which will be forgotten soon, Nalbandian seems to be done. They are close.

Fat Nalbo is an underachiever while Kolya is the opposite. Perhaps Fat Dave is more talented but he hasn't had really a better career than Kolya, so my vote goes for the bald russian.

Nalbandian has the better slam record & has won a bigger title (Masters Cup). Davydenko has more titles & a more consistent ranking history. The original question is who will be remembered as the better player. People remember slams & big titles more than small titles and rankings, so the answer must be Nalbandian.

it's hard to imagine Nalby adding much to his career, while there is every reason to expect Davy achieving even more, so as of now I think Davy has a better chance, they are pretty even all-around career wise (Nalby slightly in the lead).

Yes and neither has a slam and no one will remember Hewitt ripping Nalby to pieces in Wimbledon final. Davy has three Masters Titles and a final in Masters Cup to Nalby two Masters Titles and Masters Cup victory. The idea that Nalby has won more big totals is a total fiction.

So is the idea that Davy can't beat the top players. He can't beat Federer. And Blake but he is not a top player.

Davyenko = overachiever [despite poor resutls at slams]
...
Nalbandian = biggest underachiever [despite good results at slams]
~~~~~~~
Davy has maximised his potential whereas Nalby clearly hasn`t..!!
Thus, PMK >> Fat Dave

Me too. I have little sympathy for underachievers. Denko is an overachiever.

Nalby slam results really aren't that much better. He has the final that Davy doesn't but only leads in semis 5-4 and QFs 10-9. So there isn't a huge difference, basically the luck of playing Malisse in a semi. And Nalby's final is a bit of a fluke because he never got close again at Wimbledon with his next best result receiving a straight set demolition in quarters by T. Johansson.
