Which two players do you like most watching?

04-26-2008, 06:18 PM
Federer Vs Nalbandian is the most enjoyable match-up for me in today's tennis.Matches between these two rarely fail to deliver great tennis.

Are you kidding?? # 1 and #2 have been battling it out for a few years now.

Gotta be rafa and fed.

Roger and Rafa, no doubt. A nice reality check is always great, no matter the surface, Nadal is the best man for it and I know he isn't going to give up. Roger has to earn it, vice-versa.

Roger-Rafa. Grass or Clay.

I always love the Federer and Nadal matchups because they're the 1 and 2, and in my opinion the best players right now. Both of them have a lot of heart, and certainly a lot of talent.

On the other hand, the Federer and Djoko rivalry is very interesting because of the tension between the two. But I'm a fan of Federer, and not one of Djoko and his parents for their unsportsmanlike conduct, so I love it when Fed gives Djoko a pounding.

fed/rafa easily

04-26-2008, 08:37 PM
I would have to say Nadal-Fed because they fight to the end. It's always high drama.

then again, I like the Fed-Djoko dynamic because you can tell they don't like each other.

Fed-Nalbandian is great if David is on, but you never know what you're going to get with Nalby.

Nadal-Djoko is pretty good too, great match up.

Federer and Djokovic

Federer and Nadal, they are too friendly with each other.

04-26-2008, 08:40 PM
How's this even a question? fed/nadal all the way until the end of their careers.

04-26-2008, 08:58 PM
Fed Rafa

Federer vs Roddick! Great rivalry, always entertaining matches!

04-26-2008, 09:02 PM
You got to be kidding me with this poll. The answer is:

Which of these match-ups has combined for 4 GS finals?

04-26-2008, 09:12 PM
for now its rafa and fed....but fed and djoko also has the making of a great rivalry...we'll just have to see in the next few months which one plays out more in the draws

04-26-2008, 09:20 PM
Fed and Rafa. They're fighting for that dominance. Rafa needs that hardcourt/grass title and Fed needs the clay! (by title I mean grand slam)

Fed and Djoker is cool too. I like djoker and all, he's a nice guy, but I like watching Federer win it!

04-26-2008, 09:22 PM
I really like Karis versus he's a ****ing ***got.

04-26-2008, 09:23 PM

04-26-2008, 09:30 PM
I really like Karis versus he's a ****ing ***got.

Lol 10 chars

Where are the real rivalry e.g Borg-Mcenroe, Mcenroe-Connors, Sampras-Agassi ???

04-27-2008, 03:34 AM
Nishikori vs Blake.

04-27-2008, 03:40 AM
im saying fed vs djoker because u dont know whats gonna happen....fed yelling at his parents....djoker quitting early or taunting the crowd ....with fed and nadal u know pretty much nadals gonna win on clay and fed every where else with grass now being very close (come to think of it fed and nadal have had some awesome matches like wimby 07)but fed -djoker just gets me a little more worked up cause i dont like djoker too much

A lot of bad blood brewing there. Makes for a better rivalry.

Fed and Nads travel on private jets together. They seem to have to much respect for one another to make a great rivalry.

04-27-2008, 04:00 AM
i would not mind seeing these two going at it Nadal vs. Djokovic, whether clay or hardcourt, i think it would be a good one

04-27-2008, 09:03 AM
Fed and Nadal, but honestly I would like to see more sparks fly between Djokovic and Federer. We've not had a "heated" excahnge like that in the tops echelons in a while. Though I don't believe in gamesmanship, healthy dislike adds interest. Fed seems to play better when he has this mood instead of the "top of the heap" blase rhythm he too often gets into.

Fed vs. Nadal for play alone. Fed vs. Novak for the extras.

04-27-2008, 09:04 AM
Fed vs. Monkey face, of course!

I just had to laugh at that, because this morning when my daughter and I was watching she asked, What's the matter with his face! And I told her, that's just how he looks. Everyone is unique LOL
