Cilic has been the best thus far but I he has peaked. Dolgo has a good ways to go before peaking.

I got scared when I cast my vote in this morning. There was like 10, 10, and then my lone vote for Gulbis. Of course, if we go by rankings, past accomplishment, it should go to Cilic. But, I just think Gulbis is the best ball-striker out of the 3 and has a serve that potentially is the deadliest of the 3. Unfortunately, he comes and goes and we only get to see that form in patches.

Just on technique and ball-striking ability, I have to say ernests.

Cilic has had the better career but Dolgo was a late bloomer and could well be the better player from now on. Or fade away like many before him.

As far as I'm concerned, Dolgopolov has the most talent and the greatest variety of the three, but Cilic would be the safer bet given his past achievements which are light years ahead of the other two.

Cilic has the greatest potential in terms of his game - when playing well (i.e. not like a basket case mentally) he is very hard to beat even by the best in the game. His game is similar to Pony but he lacks Delpo's mental strength. His lack of mental toughness will severely impede his career.

Dolgo is the strongest mentally and is full of heart but has the most limited game and hence probably the least potential.

Gulbis has everything except the desire so of the 3 he is the most limited and will have the least successful career.

I disagree. Do variety, footspeed and netplay not count for anything?

Gulbis is the least talented if you ask me. He's only good at one thing.

dolgo is the more complete player of them and is not a mug unlike the other 2.

This. Dolgo is talented and will achieve great things (masters wins, top 10 and possibly a slam), Mugbis is a headcase ball basher who doesn't even care about the game, despite whatever talent he might have. He's a rich kid, content to fall back on daddy's money should his tennis career fail and thus he lacks motivation. Mugrin is just an all-around clown. Disgraceful serve for his height, ugly groundstrokes, awful mentality and complete lack of plan B. Always looks stoned while on court. Zero intensity even when winning. He's a mug and will always remain a mug, his fluke AO semi and a few MM titles will be a highlight of his career.

I agree with this.

Gulbis proved himself as a talented clown/mug who doesn't even care about the game. He will never learn it seems. The real battle between Marin & Dolgo and Marin will win it in the end hopefully and proves that he is a better player than Dolgo.

For me Gulbis. Just lacking the will to win recently.
