It was put forward as an argument that Tipsy is a better player than Roddick.

Who do you think is a better player, Roddick or Tipsarevic?

Of course Tipsy. The guy never lost a GS final.

But did he ever win one?

Is this another lame attempt to convince people it's better not to make Slam finals so you have a better resume when you retire?

No. He never won one. But GS titles are overrated. I never lost a professional tennis match- which makes me a GOAT candidate. Not to mention that Tipsy is friends with Nole. Which makes him a far better player than Roddick. Or Federer for that matter.

you should have been more specific in the poll OP: who's better right now or who's better carreer wise? In both cases the answer is obvious.

H2H is 2-2, however both Tipsy's victories are at slams, so... :shrug: :angel:
And Roddick has positive H2H over Djokovic. H2H are really of little importance especially if the matches are happening before or past your peak.

Right now of course it's Tipsarevic but overall? Only an idiot "weak era" propagandist would claim Tipsarevic is better than Roddick.

Tipsarevic at the moment is the better player just like I've stated in the other thread. He's got a decent forehand and backhand. His return of serve was good enough to help him go the distance against tough opponents. He's not afraid of going for big winners against big opponents. He's better than Roddick at the moment. Roddick's serve is crumbling, weak backhand again, forehand is mediocre, clearly at this point in time, Tipsarevic is the better player and the ranking doesn't lie. If I were a top 8 player, I'd rather face Roddick, than Tipsarevic, since Tipsy's game is more dangerous since he's got more weapons in the bag.

Better at what? Playing tennis or fixing?

Don't try to weasel out of it now. You were comparing Tipsarevic to '06 Roddick and according to you:

Tipsarevic might be an inconsistent player, but he still has more overall quality than Roddick does. The only thing Roddick has over him is one lucky slam.
