The answer is Nalbandian by a small bit. But I am glad to see them compared though....I always thought it was kind of dumb that so many slobber all over Nalbandian but a guy like Davydenko really gets little fanfare. Davydenko was never as flashy, but the way he played and executed when in the zone was just as impressive as any of Nalbandian's performances IMO.

Not even a hater can deny Nalbandian's insane talent and feel on a tennis court.
I wasn't denying Nalbandian's skill. I was facepalming the fact that you said Nalbandian had never been to a GS Final

Davydenko maximized his talent and never got any choke vibes from me. Nalbadian on the other hand, has so much more talent than him but the results are that similar. Therefore Davy had a better carrer in fans eyes

Point taken, it was my mistake. I've already edited it, I consider Nalby the best/most talented player without a Slam TITLE to his name

Default Re: Who had better carreer: Nalbandian or Davydenko?

I always enjoyed Davydenko as a player. Nalbandian too, though.

They were both "around" for so long, always there but only infrequently making big splashes. I suppose Nalbandian made the bigger splashes, though I prefer Davydenko's career story personally.

Default Re: Who had better carreer: Nalbandian or Davydenko?

so close....

but really more of you are putting Nalbandian???? I think you are saying this based on bias because he's so talented. obviously he was the better player of the TWO but Davydenko's career was so much better. Nalbandian has one advantage, slightly better Grand SLam results? very slightly as neither managed to win one.

they both have the masters cup, but Davydenko has more masters series titles, way more overall titles, way more career prize money, was at the top of the game for a longer and much more consistant amount of time.

sure Nalbandian has the prestige as always being looked at as the danger player of the two BUT career wise Davydenko wins by a decent margin. I think what's mistaken here is that people are letting 'prestige' and 'word of mouth' taint their opinions. Nalbandian is the bigger name but had the worse career

Even.

People tend to overlook Davydenko's consistency in the top 10 and that he has won more titles than Nalbandian.

I like both. But Nalbandian is a very special player, Davydenko not so much.

You have to watch Nalbandian play at his prime to understand the genius. Few have played this game at the same level he did,

Talent doesn't always translate to a great career.

The question is who had the better career and the answer is clearly Davydenko.

Davydenko:


Nalbandian:


Even if you take away Nalbandian's Wimby final, you could argue that his career was a little better than Davydenko's.
