Hi guys, who are your absolute favourite male and female players of all time and why do you like them? Just wanted to know if there are any common denominators in your choices e.g. style of play, attitude, game etc.

I know that we like a lot of the the same women players but I didn't know that your favorite male player was also Fabrice. Cool. :yeah:

My favorite women alltime would be Mandlikova, Zvereva and Myskina. My current faves are those in my signature.

For the men Fabrice Santoro and Miloslav Mecir would be my top favorites.

As for style I tend to be attracted to players with a lot of variety and touch and I like those that are unconventional. I don't generally like MBBs on either the women's or men's circuit.

I also tend to lean towards East European and French players for both the men and women although that is just a rule of thumb and there are plenty of East European and French players I do not like.

I'm lost and confused with my favorites. My favorite style of tennis is serve and volley/chip n' charge/lots of net approaches and volley winners with short rallies, but well. That kind of doesn't exist anymore. Needless to say, Pete Sampras is :bowdown: as far as I'm concerned.

Goran Ivanisevic, Andre Agassi, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Richard Gasquet, Fernando Verdasco, Paul Henri-Mathieu, Sebastian Grosjean, Fabrice Santoro, Arnaud Clement, Janko Tipsarevic, Andy Murray, David Nalbandian, Marat Safin pre-2007 :o, Dominik Hrbaty....

For the women. Well. Elena. Venus. Lindsay. Daniela. Mara. Amelie. Vera. Tamira. :shrug: I think Navratilova was amazing too.

I have more male favorites, but the women players are the ones that get me most excited.

Hi guys, who are your absolute favourite male and female players of all time and why do you like them?

My all time favorite female player is (maybe you guessed it already...) Martina Navratilova.

I don't really have an all time favorite male player, though, but there are just some players that I like very much...Jimmy Connors, Stefan Edberg, Gustavo Kuerten would be three of them. :)

Tim Henman (GBR) and Paola Suarez (ARG).

Henman because I really enjoy watching a player "serve + volley".

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/9/90/Tim_Henman_2006_Australian_Open.JPG/180px-Tim_Henman_2006_Australian_Open.JPG

Paola Suarez for many reasons:

- We are from the same country
- One of those players that leaves EVERYTHING on a court (heart, spirit, etc)
- One of the five best doubles players of all the history
- With Ruano Pascual were UNDEFEATABLE for more than 3 or 4 years
- Strategy, tactics, smart on a doubles court

On the ATP side, my favourite player is Pete Sampras. I also like Boris Becker, Stefan Edberg, Ivan Lendl, Richard Krajicek, Gustavo Kuerten and Richard Gasquet.

On the WTA side, my favourite is Monica Seles. My favourite currently playing (as you know) is Svetlana Kuznetsova followed closely by Amelie Mauresmo.

I also like Mary Pierce, Jennifer Capriati, Conchita Martinez and young Agnes Szavay.

I also don't mind Venus Williams and Lindsay Davenport

Sharapova - The one who got me interested in tennis. I love her passion and her desire to win. Maria is a true warrior and someone that I really look up to. She's also very tall and I like tall amazonian women. :hearts:

Favorite Active Male Player
Federer - Absolutely beautiful to watch. Roger is a class act all the way and a great role model for everyone. He is so calm and focused on the court and he is always respectful of his opponents. I hope he wins the french this year and breaks Sampras' record.

There is something more powerful than each of us, a combination of our efforts, a Great Chain of industry that unites us. But it is only when we struggle in our own interest that the chain pulls society in the right direction. The chain is too powerful and too mysterious for any government to guide.Any man who tells you different either has his hand in your pocket, or a pistol to your neck.


Nice faves :rolleyes:
