Golubev (#749) might be lesser name to some, but he played a great tournament to win the ATP500 Hamburg event in 2010. By doing so - all the players he beat:

-Zverev
-Granollers-Pujol
-Davydenko
-Istomin
-Mayer
-Melzer

they are all ATP title winners. So good stuff from Golubev.

RBA road to his lone 500 title:

-Mayer
-Herbert (no titles)
-Coric
-Jaziri (no titles)
-Pouille


Quite interesting. The question isnt about who is the better player or who has had better career. Its about who is more deserving ATP500 winner.

For me its Golubev AINEC.

Golubev possibly had the most fluid/easy on the eye game i have ever seen, problems are he had terrible stamina, couldn't really play in the heat and was an absolute mental midget, worse than someone like Klizan but he did string a few results together.

On this particular event i think Golubev edges it but obviously can't help looking at their whole career, in which case, RBA would be far more deserving of an ATP 500.
