This question requires more thought of me than I expected. ("Favorite" may not equal "best" ... may have more to do with "style" ... or "smarts" ... or "looks" ... or ...)

All Time (in order of preference -- and I watched them play)
Men: Newcombe, Nastase, McEnroe, Borg, Connors, Ashe
Women: Goolagong, Court, Navratilova

Men: Federer, Agassi, Haas
Women: Clijsters, Molik, Serena

I am amazed at how much effort I put into this. Good question, hotdimsim.

Current: Federer, Kiefer, Gonzalez, Agassi

All time: Mcenroe, Federer, Sampras, Leconte, Agassi, Nastase.... actually this list is too long to mention, there's a ton of lesser known journeyman players I liked as well....

03-01-2005, 03:42 PM
Federer because he has the best all around game and speed in tennis.

03-01-2005, 03:50 PM
Guga. I hope he makes it back, but it looks doubtful. And Henin Hardenne. Such beautiful backhands. And of course Agassi, though the two handed backhand is not my ideal of a beautiful looking stroke. Tim Henman for his serve and volley game. Roger because his tennis is so beautiful to watch.

Former players? Johnnie Mac for those wonderful hands at the net. Boris Becker for his dive around the court game. Jimmy Conners for his bulldog approach to winning. Sampras for his serve and volley game. And I wish I had seen Laver in his prime. And Arthur Ash was truly graceful on the court.

03-01-2005, 03:55 PM
ATP: Federer any time any where.

Other ATP players may be interesting to watch depending on whom their opponent is. For example it's fun to watch Hewitt or Agassi against Roddick.

Melzer is fun to watch when he's not injured. I saw him work Agassi recently .... he was a hoot with all those drop shots.

Now: Federer~~hands down!

Then:Borg, Sampras ~~I saw them when they were playing, too.
S. Graff, M.Seles

03-01-2005, 04:41 PM
Henin-Herdenne for the ladies.

03-01-2005, 04:50 PM
Roddick, Agassi, Fish, Blake, Ginepri (see a pattern here) but my favorite would have to be Roddick. As for non-american it would probably be Olivier Rochus who i don't think anyone has yet to mention. He upset Moya at the U.S. Open and went pretty far in the Australian Open where he narrowly lost to Safin. Any one who is 5 feet 5 inches and plays in the ATP deserves my respect.

03-01-2005, 05:01 PM
