So I thought I'd start off with some....

O.K only good positive things you really appreciate about a player. And please keep the comments on how ridiculous some one is for liking this or that. If you don't agree just read and move on. Please this one time refrain from commenting negatively on it.

If you like it, we love it.
thanx

I'll start it off

Rafa

fight style
his athleticism
His humbleness
his boyishness
his shot making
his good nature
his uncle
his net game
and most importantly his tennis

Fed
His shot making
his anticipation
his ability to be a brick wall at net

Nole
His all around game


Murray
His personality

Davydenko
His game when it is on

Roddick
His personality
his passion for tennis
his passion for american tennis

Nadals positives: Boyishness

Just a weird comment anyway you slice it...

Nadal is somewhat boyish. I don't find him sexy at all, although I wouldn't call him ugly, either. I found Kuznetsov sexy (when he played James Blake late last year). He's not model beautiful, but has a nice body. Bolelli's not bad, either. He looked pretty good when playing Massu earlier this year.

sondraj - my apologies. I was in fact kinda teasing.

What do I appreciate about certain tennis players?

Federer - his sense of fashion, hand-eye coordination, footwork, his actual coach Mirka

Nadal - his wheels, the fact that he's learned to play lefty, his willingness to work on his game for faster surfaces, sense of family and community

Roddick - the big first serve, and his continual use of working in the kicker on the ad court side

Murray - his wearing Fred Perry clothes

Davydenko - his wife is cute, he's a great all-around player, his quiet nature

Safin - most interesting personality on the ATP tour, his footwork prior to his knee surgeries

Henin - her groundstrokes are so pretty

Ivanovic - great brunette hair

Williamses - winning despite odds and criticism (though I'm not a true fan)

Kirilenko - sporting great Stella McCartney Adidas apparel and bags

Federer: His movement, his fluidity

Rafael Nadal: his 2hbh, footspeed

Safin: his smoking hotness

Gonzales: His go-for-broke mentality, his forehand

James Blake: His forehand, his...smoking hotness, damn I'm shallow.

Roddick: His post-match interviews, his oblique non-answers to journalists' stupid questions

Davydenko: his non-commercialism

Gasquet: his backhand

Hewitt: his attitude. I know everyone thinks it sucks, but I think it's hilarious.


Henin: her backhand

Sharapova: her stylish service motion, her unpredictable fashion choices, her lankiness

Jankovic: her attitude

Ivanovic: her funny screaming into her own fist

Serena Williams: her raw talent

Venus Williams: her fitness

Bartoli: that she makes the clunkiest service motion I've ever seen somehow get serves over and in

Hingis: Her court coverage

Mauresmo: her grace and dignity

Kimmy Kim: her slides, her attitude

Chakvetadze: her braid

Maria Kirelinko: her ability to turn grown men into drooling idiots

I really admire Nadal's fighting style/spirit. I do not think many have that same intensity now, nor in the past. For that, I think he is up there with the very best of them. Name some of the greatest of all time, and in that category he would be there too, hands down. Tremendous shot making ability also.

Fed, of the listed, would only chose his anticipation. Elitism might be a positive thing. A belief in oneself that you can and should do it all and win them all.

Davydenko for his consistency, and lack of fear of a name or game.

Roddick has great personality. I think he gets knocked way too much.

Federer - His greatness. And unlike every single great player before him, he rarely ever tanks, no matter what tournament he's playing.

Nadal - Amazing fighting spirit and fitness. He also has great hands from anywhere on the court.

Djokovic - Beautiful forehand, solid backhand.

Roddick - Crazy good serve. Funniest guy on tour.

Henin - Beautiful backhand

Sharapova - ...nothing. Okay, fine, she's a fighter.

Serena - Is capable of hitting the ball better than any woman out there.

Venus - Fights hard and stays fit.

Jankovic - Very solid game

Ivanovic - Solid game, most likable personality in interviews of all the players.

That's enough.
