    Is he?
    Haarhuis won just 1 title during his whole career, Hrbaty 6.

    Hrbaty also has the higher career best ranking and clearly better slams results.
    Haarhuis is only a better player in doubles.

    hum hum... sooo?

    i see you are one of those poor minded posters that think achievements and quality are one and the same.




    ps: Ford Cars must be great in your opinion and Coca Cola is for sure the greatest drink on earth......

    How are Ford/Coca Cola and the decade long career of a tennis player comparable?

    If you can't win a a single big title in your career you're just not that good.

    Nalbandian isn't consistent either, but once in a while he dismantles everyone and shows what he's capable of.
    Haarhuis best achievement ist beating Radomir Vasek (who?) in Jakarta.

    i didn't even like the guy (haarhuis)... but he was a double specialist who regularly gave problems to some top players in single:
    3-1 vs sampras
    7-5 vs ivanisevic
    3-3 vs becker
    etc.

    by the way, off-topic but i'm going to your country on holidays (now)... and i want some sun ! :cool:

    All those players have a very serve-heavy game and are not very consistent, so when Haarhuis got a break he usually won the set (as he himself had a big serve).

    When a player was consistent from the baseline and had a good return he was toast (1-8 against Chang).

    There are lots of those scores in most Sampras matches.

    He just skated along, doing enough to win with a break or tiebreak each set. He knew he wouldnt lose serve so just did the minimum needed to break.

    Hewitt was 4-0 vs Nadal but that was Nadal pre 2005 and on HC hence the obvious :D

    Was Henman something like 6-3 vs Federer at one point as well? That's sort of surprising

    Also pre Fed 2004, Nalbandian was 5-0 vs Fed :shock::shock::shock:

    Connors - Laver

    Not too weird - they didn't start playing each other until Laver was 34 or 35.
