Who's career would you rather have if given a choice?
 
Who's career would you rather have? Murray or Delpo?

stebe has it all still ahead of him

Definitely Murray, given the fact that he is almost guaranteed a slam in the near future, and will most likely end up with more than one slam. Murray also has more Masters titles, ATP 1000 tournaments, a gold medal (as opposed to a bronze) and a more impressive resume overall.

If they both retired today then Del Potro! He is US OPen champion time will tell if he wins any more majors or Murray wins any but as it stands definitely Del PO!!

Also a lot more money.

Murray. No contest. Slams are what matter most but this is an extreme case. 8 Masters + Olympic Gold + 4 slam finals all together are for sure worth more than 1 Slam title and no other titles above 500 level.

Dark Magician 08-13-2012 04:45 AM

Murray for sure.
More success (as already stated).
Wont want to spend 2 years in pain with a wrist injury when my prime seemed to begin.
And Murray cried in Wimb. final but the court was filled with Murray chants!!

Murray, consistently in the top four, more money, has won more masters and is more famous.

Del Potro, sorry Andy 1 major is worth more than 0 majors

Even if he's probably going to win either the US Open or the Australian Open?

Murray has a Ferrari and a lot more money and amongst the choices, you're splitting hairs. Del Po is a one trick pony so far, if he wins a another Major and Andy never wins one, that will be another question though.

The money is what really counts, but he's also been way more consistent than Del Potro.

1 GS >>>>> 40 billion consecutive Masters titles, slam finals, years at no. 1...etc...

We can be absolutists in this argument.

Murray can't touch Del-Potro.

kishnabe 08-13-2012 05:40 AM

If their Careers stopped right now....I would go Delpo.

If it is the entire career...then Murray. Murray eventually will win a slam or more.

Gorecki 08-13-2012 05:45 AM

none of the above. Spadea is "du bomb"

But Andy has chances to win more, DP was a one off

sureshs 08-13-2012 07:48 AM

Nadal, because he defeats Fed so easily

it wasn't necessarily a one off, his abilities went straight down hill a couple months after and hasn't been in good form until late. it's not like he was able to compete at the same high level in the 11 slams after the 09USO and failed to capture a single one, if that was the case, then yeah, call it a one off.

The sad thing is he may never be able to reach that level again.

+1 for the money.

These guys are pros - tennis is their living.

Murray's $21.5 mil > Delpo's $9.25 mil

And that's just prize money; I bet Murray makes more in endorsements also.
