Don't mind me just being an *** cause it's general pro player discussion - your list was clever enough and truthful enough though haha

There are two but yeah it is very different to even this time last year where he'd be in 80% of the lists.

Results are all that matter.
I don't know why you guys consider Gasquet so great player, he is only a tennis guy with some weaknesses and strengths...

I don't personally agree that results are all that matter. I like different things about different players. Gasquet can play amazing points although he doesn't often follow that through with a win, and I would rather watch someone who ocassionally produces gems like these

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnZz7W4HQGE

than players that win but just pound the crap out of the ball. Gasquet Gonzo at the AO was one of the best matches I have watched this year. Gasquet Federer Halle 06 match again was just amazing even though Richie lost both.

I like Nalby for the same reason. He is completely inconsistent but capable of genius. Like this match
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXUMWKjpUZA&feature=related

some of his shots are just sublime.

I believe this thread asked for the top 5 favorite players, not top 5 best players. Gasquet doesn't have great results (at least for his talent) but he is a very good player with a beautiful backhand and his matches are always a joy to watch. I can think of at least a dosen players which are far great than Gasquet yet watching their matches is simply painful.
