One slam each. who is better?

a-rod: much more impressive cv. more slam finals than cash (5 v 3), tons more titles. fed roadblock stopped him winning more

cash: arguably much stronger era (lendl, mcenroe, connors, edberg, becker, wilander). slam arguably better quality (beat wilander, connors, lendl). career ruined at peak by injuries.

imo cash was better player than roddick at his peak. demolished lendl in that wimby final, n got good wins over lotsa legends. but i be biased - love the s&v.

what say u?

I think Roddick is the the best player to have only won 1 slam.

Roddick would serve Cash's a** off.

But then again I'm biased as I utterly despise Cash and like Roddick.

Obviously Roddick career wise, but Cash's run to the 1987 Wimbledon title was quite amazing.

I think Roddick is the the best player to have only won 1 slam.

Thomas Muster. 1 major, 8 masters series, 44 career titles.

Roddick vs. Muster would be interesting. I would still go with Roddick tbh, the Duck as some quack.

Plus, did cash have to play the GOAT? No. Then again neither did Duck, both too old to play Laver ;)

Cash IMO is the better

Cash's body barely let him be more than a glorified part timer, unfortunately. But he could've won one of those AO finals if his muscle tears didn't have tears on them, if you take his word for it.

5 slam finals>1 slam final

Yes, but does that takes precedent over titles actually won? Muster won 21 titles in 25 months.

Mustard could have been a real force outside of clay and inadvertently been a good player overall if it weren't for the dumbass that ran over him.
