Who impressed more? It should be a no brainer it's Rublev as he already started to make the step towards the ATP tournaments

Who will have a better career? Impossible to say. It's impossible to say who will have a better career between Raonic and Dimitrov and we are following them for so long so let alone this

Rublev is like 10 months older than Tiafoe. Let's see where Tiafoe is at late this year.
Rublev is exactly 3 months older than Tiafoe

Either way doesn't matter. Youngsters develop at different rates. Tiafoe didn't turn pro until April. Even before that he won a futures and was a finalist in another one. He'll be in MD's of ATP soon enough.

I meant from what everyone has seen of them and yes it is impossible to judge but both have great games for there ages and Tiafoe is mentally strong at a young age.

To me it is Tiafoe, simply because Frances has done it with no wild cards, while Rublev has had a WC into every event he has played in 2015.

In the last three weeks alone, Tiafoe qualified into Sarasota where he reached the QF, used that run to make the SFs of Savannah as a SE, and then used that run to go to the finals in Tallahassee as a SE. Tiafoe's futures record has been beyond impressive as well.

Rublev has the big $$$ behind him, as Andrey gets a bigger push in the US than Tiafoe has had in his home country.

Tiafoe had a WC into both Savannah and Tally but maybe he didn't need to use them.

I know that Tallahassee didn't offer him a WC until he was already in the second round of Savannah (which he did not need as he ultimately earned a special entry). I'm not sure about Savannah, as I only saw him listed as a SE in the draw sheet and have no other knowledge regarding their WC plans in advance.

But it doesn't matter about who got a WC or not I was really talking about there games overall both look impressive for 17.

It doesn't matter though? 3 months, 10 months? Still does not matter. Stop trying to pick out on something and make a big deal out of it. When I admitted my mistake. It still doesn't change my view that youngsters develop at a different rate.

Ever since I first heard Rublev's name, I can't help but think of the movie/historical figure. That means he has struggled to stand out for me in his own right a little, particularly given Andrei Rublev is one of my favourite films. If he can bring the same artistry and inspiration to the tennis court, then he'll win slams. His ATP matches to date have been very impressive. Haven't paid much attention to Tiafoe yet.
