Unhappy The most boring player?

With the Williams sisters winning everything lately,there's been lots of talk about "boring" tennis...who do you think is the most boring player to watch??

My pix: Anna K... soooo predictable
Andy Roddick...see Anna K!

Lindsay and Conchita but only when they have an off day and seem to be half hearted, Martina was the same for a part last year!
I don't like that, I like to see players give the impression they give it their all and try hard to win!
when a player does that, I am satisfied

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Tatiana Panova. Seems like a nice enough girl, but *yawn* I'm too bored even to finish this sentence...

Martina Hingis! She rarely hit a shot that makes you say, ooh, ahh!

hmm K

I know that Ivanisevic is all about his serve but you can hardly call him boring.

That final and his semi at Wimbly 2001 were out of this world. Also, Goran is a bit of a nutter, he's always likely to do something unexpected. Put it this way, how many other players have had to retire half way through a match because they smashed all their racquets up ?

jhingis how the hell have you the nerve to slag someone off for calling Hingis boring when you say you find Serena boring and hate both Venus and Serena, it doesn't make sense you silly cow!! so just respect peoples' decisions on whoever they find boring. ok?
