I disagree, the one match these 2 have played that people are most likely to remember is the 2002 Wimbledon final, simply because it was a slam final. 2nd most memorable will probably be 2005 Masters Cup final, mainly because it was a Federer loss at a time when he was considered close to invincible. I also think the Masters Cup is a lot more important than a Masters Series title: the year-end Masters has a longer history and more established place in the sport. But I agree there's not much between Nalbandian & Davydenko.

In 10 years no one except Hewitt and Nalby fans will remember who Hewitt beat in that Wimbledon final because it was a shit match. Do you think most people remember who Agassi beat in 01 and 03 Aussie finals? Certainly not. I think people will remember the Nalby/Fed Masters Cup match more than that Wimbly final, maybe even the Roddick loss at the Open more as well.

I agree that the Masters Cup is more important but it doesn't give a significant edge one way or the other.

By the end of his career, Davydenko will have more achievements than Nalbandian. They are both very talented.

Davy has maximised his potential whereas Nalby clearly hasn`t..!!
Thus, PMK >> Fat Dave
Nikolay an overachiever ? You mean to say that Davy works hard and thus his results, but he lacks talent ? Hell no ! He has a gorgeous cross court FH and hits the most incredible down the line shots.

10 years from now neither one of these players be remembered in their own threads on forums such as these, unless Davydenko can win a major (very unlikely), however Nalbandians name will come up from time to time when we be discussing Federer and Nadal cause he has good success against both of these players. Another important point to be made is Davydenko is not Russia's most successful player, Kafelnikov and Safin had greater success, and Del Potro already has more success as Argentinian player.

What hurts Davydenko a bit is his disappointing showings at Davis Cup. Even though he did contribute to a winning team he was not one of its top players.

I don't agree that his Grand Slam results are poor. They're not poor at all. Making GS semifinals is indicative of elite talent and accomplishment.

Some folks here really need to screw their heads on straight. Making a GS final means that one is either #1 or #2 at the tournament. Considering that Davydenko never was higher than 3rd in the world, it shouldn't come as a surprise that he has not made a GS final.

Making several GS semifinals in a career is not poor. Some peoples' logic however is poor.

Nalbandian. In tennis, winning matters more than consistently performing well. Nalbandian has performed slightly better on the big stage and has performed better against the best. And subjectively, I think Nalbandian is the more talented of the two. So I consider him the better player anyway.

On the other hand, Davydenko is much closer to the top of the game than Nalbandian, and I would certainly expect him to accomplish more in the remainder of his career. The depth at the top of the game is better now than a few years ago. So if Davydenko were to win some more big titles beating quality opposition along the way, it's certainly not too late to turn the discussion in his favor.

Davydenko will be remembered a bit longer, mainly because of his fixing matches issues.
Otherwise they will be both forgotten quite fast.

Better player? - Nalbandian more talented and better at the top of his game, Davydenko much more consistent and long time top 10 player. What is better from these? A matter of personal judgement.

Even Roddick will be part of the deep history together with Hewitt and Safin, what to say about these two GS chokers.
