Had he stayed healthy for the majority of his career it would be Haas definitely. As it is it's close between him and Henman, but I still think Tommy takes this.

Ljubo had a great career too, but the other two are a step above him due to his poor results at slams.

Tiger Tim! He spent more years at the top ten, he earned more money and had a better doubles career.

Default Re: Better career: Henman vs Haas vs Ljubicic

I'm going with Henman, since it's unusual for someone with his game to do so well. Haas would have had the better career if he had been injury-free though.

Tim Henman, obviously.

Also, Henman was waaaay more popular. And popularity equals $$$.

Ljubicic was 3 for like 2 weeks. He also had one of the easiest draws in history to reach his RG SF (his highest ranked opponent was Ramirez Hidalgo at 79)

If you're going to talk about Ljubo in terms of career achievements then you really should include the 2005 Davis Cup, especially so given that he won it pretty much single-handedly

this, obviously. but Truba's still not close.

i'd go with Henners - more SFs, more time at the top and qualified for the Masters multiple times. though the Silver medal makes it close.
