Nalbandian is over. Meanwhile, Davydenko might still win a couple of TMS titles and gain a definitive edge over Fattie.

Thanks for so many replies.

In terms of achievements I think they are both on more or less similar level. In terms of talent - it is very subjective and obviously some will pick Bundy and some will pick Kolya.

Achievements are measurable, talent is not, hence the differences in opinions. Greetings to all Nalbandian and Davydenko fans out there.

Kolya matches Nalbandian's best result, achievements-wise it's very close now.

Very close now indeed. Be great for the game if either won a slam.

Funny thing is, Nalby would have lost that match in 2005 had it been this stupid best of 3 format.

I have to say a lot has changed in the past couple of months. Davydenko's CV now looks slightly better than Nalbandian's with these two titles.

Even then, I have no doubt Nalbandian is the better player, but with a third of Davydenko's work ethic.

No. He would played on his very limit in the start of the second set in that match.

I still believe Fit Dave is more player than Fit Denko.

Davy needs a Slam final. Nalbandian has won one of these TMC things, when it was a 5 set final. He did beat Fedclown and Nadal in 2 consecutive events.

One made the most of his abilities and the other hasn't.

Not to mention Federer are Nadal were more impressive scalps back then than they are nowadays.

I'd like to see a slam final between these two.

Hopefully Big Dave has got his hip straightened out.

Yes, definitely. Their matches are quite fun to watch, they just don't consist of brainless bashing, but not just pushing either.

Nalbandian still has slam final and has reached at least SF at all 4 slams.

Consistency is always underrated while talent is definitely overrated.

Davydenko tipped the scales in his favor this week. Barely, though.

Good to see my thread bumped. Maybe now there will be less laughing about this comparison, even though I am still hesitating between these two and put it on 50-50.

Davy definitely needs a GS final to top Nalbandian. If he finishes without one (although some might argue about that RG semi against Puerta) - I will have them in my books placed on equal positions.
