So you like Roddick less than ....um.. Alex Bogomolov? ;) Roddick gets a round bashing here, but I wouldn't put him among my least favorite players. Same for Nadal. I actually like Ljubicic and Nalbandian.

Interesting that the oldest guy on your all-time favorite/least favorite list is Greg Rusedski. Lot of young guns...I haven't even seen del Potro play yet. ;) I agree with you on some of those guys though (IE Murray).

My list, with some countries omitted (Switzerland, Czech, etc.) because they don't have anyone who I would call a "Favourite". Also added a couple.

Favourites
Argentina: Guillermo Vilas
Australia: Patrick Rafer
Austria: Thomas Muster
Belgium: Xavier Malisse
Brazil: Gustavo Kuerten
Chile: Marcelo Ríos
Croatia: Goran Ivanišević
France: Henri Leconte
Great Britain: Andy Murray
Russia: Yevgeny Kafelnikov
Serbia: Novak Đoković
Spain: Àlex Corretja
Sweden: Björn Borg
USA: Can't Decide

Don't really have a "least favorites" list.

This is an odd list. It is way too heavily weighted towards current players yet your title is about favorite of all time. It is more like favorite of the the last several years.

Sam Querrey is your favorite player of all time from the USA? Considering he has done absolutely nothing significant yet and has been playing pro tennis for about a year how can he be on anybody's all time list for anything?

Juan Martín del Potro? ok

To each his own, right? Stop being an *****hole and post something that DOESN'T criticise the fact that I like Sam Querrey more than Andy Roddick, Jimmy Connors, Bill Tilden, Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras and all of the other Americans that I can think of. I said 'all time' so your choices would have a bit of variety. I don't have to choose players that I don't really like, or don't really dislike. I haven't been following tennis for very long at all and I don't even know what some of the older players were like.

Why don't you go ahead and post a list, rather than wasting minutes of whatever life (or lack thereof) you're living criticising my post?

current favourite australian(s) lleyton hewitt, chris guccione (pretty **** but he plays good on the odd occasion)
current least favourite australian: casey dellacqua (fat)
i see most people prefer henman over murray, henman is a pretty poor player, murray's way better. and why have so many people put monfils in their least favourites? from what i saw at the australian open he was freakin' awesome!

i could make a list based on all the other countries but i can't be bothered

The least favorite from the US has got to be Jeff Tarrango. The guy whines more than a 2 year old baby. Non stop whining, never shuts up, and complained about everything. Kind of reminded me of what Johnny Mac said to Boris Becker 2 months before he won Wimbledon....."better win something first, before you start complaining"........
