Default Who Is Better ? Steve Johnson or Jack Sock ?

To me, their style is so similiar. Both with big serves and booming forehands. Both with barely top 150 level backhands. They're both american. And they both seem destined to be in top 20 at least in the near future.

So who is better ? To me, Steve looks litle litle bit better but it might very well change in quite a short time.

Discuss.

Who is better now is a tough question. Who will be better in the future is fairly easy to answer as it'll clearly be Sock.

Both will be challenger mugs at best. Socks might peak around 80.

Johnson mug-son

17 years old Roddick would easily beat this two mugs

37 years Federer would easily beat this two sucks

There are many young players vying for those positions. It's a battle out there.

sock has a lot lot lot more promise, he can dominate players around the court, dictating play. I don't think Steve has quite that ability

Some of you are a massive mugs, isn´t Johnson a college player? He is playing fine for someone ranked that low. Sock on the other hand will most probably have a better career...but insulting someone even before his career actually started? Really?

sock's playing super well against almagro... except his break point conversion.

i was not expecting almagro to even have to play a tiebreak, let alone playing two of which he only won one so far

Really? Almagro has made super hard work of his matches so far and hadn't played a single HC tournament prior to the US Open...the fact he is struggling is hardly a surprise?!
