View Full Version : Who's your favorite player to watch?

Not sure if he's my favorite but Baghdatis is always fun to watch. He seems like a real happy-go-lucky type of guy and is always having fun out there.

08-15-2007, 06:57 PM
Safin used to be, but he got a little too crazy and he isn't fun to watch when he plays horrible. I would have to go with Baghdatis as well. That Agassi match at the USO was absolutely tremendous. He is very entertaining as well. He gets the crowd involved very well also.

I love to watch hewitt play when he gets fired up. I love the COME ON!!!!!!

08-15-2007, 07:07 PM
I love to watch hewitt play when he's on. I love the COME ON!!!!!!

I've always liked Rusty's slapshot backhand.

I like watching all the guys you listed, but I went with Djokovic. Cheeky little devil.

08-15-2007, 07:07 PM
Juan Carlos Ferrero and David S Nalbandian

It's actually a tie for me between Tommy Haas & Feliciano Lopez. I just like both their games -- they're strong from the back court, but both like to get in quickly and play an all court game. Both guys even S&V from time to time. Each has a great 1 handed backhand, and Lopez just has a really smooth game all around that's pretty to watch. (Yeah, yeah, I know...he's a pretty boy, but who cares, I'd take his game any day)

Federer - because he's 'unbelievable'.

08-15-2007, 07:34 PM
djokovic, seems so happy and brings smile to my face. Although I was thinking about Gonzalez, the forhand is so fast, I just can watch it over and over .. like a bullet.

08-15-2007, 07:54 PM
tie between djokovic and nadal.

08-15-2007, 07:55 PM
Nadal - definitely him, a good fighter who chasing every ball without easily giving up VAMOS...........;)

08-15-2007, 07:59 PM
I picked "other" so that would be Henman. All-court game is almost flawless.

08-15-2007, 08:13 PM
ive got a tie:
safin (when hes on his game lol)

andy's serve :)

Roger Federer...nothing beats the beautiful game!

08-16-2007, 04:04 AM
Gonzalez...You never know what this guy is going to pull!!!

08-16-2007, 04:23 AM
I chose Djokovic but Federer is a close 2nd because Federer seems to do less 'amazing' shots nowadays and more of the shanks.

08-16-2007, 06:07 AM
Calleri. From the above mentioned I would have to say Nadal.

08-16-2007, 06:09 AM
How good is this for tennis, I am a happy chubby now, many guys to watch out there and you did not mention the half of them. Back then I used to follow the wizard with doublehanded fh and bf - santoro - that was pure magic from a small man !

08-16-2007, 07:32 AM
Baghdatis,Gonzo, Ferrero,Fed

08-16-2007, 07:38 AM
I like "intelligent" WTA-tennis. I don't like power-tennis like Sharapova.

My favorite player to watch was Myskina. Her tennis play in 2004 was like a kind of chess-play. Smart, intelligent.

Today Myskina is not a top player anymore, but I recognize a lot of the intelligent, smart tennis in Anna Chakvetadze's way of playing.

Therefore I like to watch Anna C.'s Russian-Hingis-Myskina-Inspired kind of tennis.


08-16-2007, 07:43 AM
Safin all the way, the guy is a total showman that runs off pure talent! also nadal is great to watch due to the effort he puts in to every shot and the insane winners he pulls off from some random corner of the stadium!

08-16-2007, 09:31 AM
gonzo is pretty fun to watch, his game and mine are similar so i figure if i was a world class tennis player i would be look something like him

08-16-2007, 10:52 AM
i like to watch fed vs hewitt most of the time. 100% sure hewitt will lose, but they make some good rallies ;)

08-16-2007, 11:27 AM
I love tennis, but usually I cannot sit through an entire match and watch any certain person especially if it's a close one because I get stressed LOL I prefer to go between a few of them, but if I had to chose a player to watch just because of who it is, it would likely be a newcomer, such as an Isner or something we don't get to see often.

08-16-2007, 11:32 AM
you love tennis? i never would've guessed that from your name ;)

08-16-2007, 11:54 AM
Roddick, Gonzalez, and Federer, but I went with Roddick cuz he was the first player I saw on TV who was pretty good.(other than Agassi and Sampras)

08-16-2007, 02:35 PM
Gasquet is the flashiest player I've ever seen, love watchin him play. Other then him I'll go Roddick, Blake, Baghdatis, Nadal, Ferrero, and Gonzalez when he's on. I like watchin guys that show fire and use the crowd. Federer is too damn good to like anymore. I like to see him lose but he still never fails to amaze me.

08-16-2007, 02:38 PM
Since "who's" also means who was, then I'll pick Berasategui. One day when I have more time, I'll start Berasategui's Toys 'R' us thread and post clips of his best shots.

08-16-2007, 02:47 PM
I would go with either Federer or Roddick. However another player i like to watch who doesnt play anymore is Pete Sampras.

I voted for Federer, but if I could vote for a retired player it would have to be Agassi. I always got a kick out of watching him walk around between points with girly little steps ;)

08-16-2007, 09:57 PM
Now: Djokovic, JC Ferero, Baghdatis
Before: Kuerten, Rios, Agassi
Long ago: Lendl

Rafa freak

08-16-2007, 11:06 PM
Topspin player Nadal........
Courier forehand..........i try to learn his styles

08-16-2007, 11:36 PM
lol, no Gasquet option??
Easily my favorite player to watch ~

i was thinking the exact same thing. gasquet ftw

08-17-2007, 05:07 AM
Based on watching many matches live at the Montreal Masters:
Stepanek: variety of play (best approach, volleys, humour, etc)
Safin: 1st set against Nadal (winner after winner)
PH Mathieu: similar to Safin in above match
Gasquet: elegance

Variety makes tennis interesting. Always going for winners loses matches but makes for interesting play. Stepanek has great variety and is an intelligent player. When the other players are in the zone, they're amazing to watch!
