To repeat, it's about YOUR OWN FAVORITE player. What is it that annoys you the most about him/her?

1. Murray - underperforming at big events, entitled attitude
2. Djoko - chest-thumping, depressing body-language of late, can't get rid of his dad
3. Gulbis - nothing really. He's doing just fine... :mad::mad:

What I dislike most about Gasquet is how often he loses.
What I dislike most about Tsonga is how he lost to Ivo at Wimby, where I thought he could go far :[

Murray- His celebration of unforced errors on points that aren't that important.

Gasquet- He looks unmotivated at times.

Safin- Same as Gasquet but he looks unmotivated even more often.

Federer-Top media savy and under performing against Nadal

Djokovic- Either overconfident or under confident

Safin- Inconsistency.

Lack of match wins! LOL Vemic my main man. It's just a part of his at times flashy and puzzling on court play and personality in the mix with some personal stubbornness to do it just the way he wants (and well, why not after all...) that keeps him from breaking through and keeping with a partner who he'll work well with on a tournament in--tournament out basis.

Doubles players usually hang around longer than singles, but he is reaching the gloomy twilight (prove me wrong Sanni!), though he'll likely have a nice enjoy post-tour career as a local pro or coach or support staff if he wants, or go into filmacting with his dashing good looks.

Gulbis - Lack of tactics, inconsistant, can't see him play more than one match a ****ing tourney >_>

Safin - lulz..i don't need to explain this

Monfils- going for too much when he doesn't need to (ie almost injuring himself to beat break Nalby despite already being up a break)

GameSampras
08-07-2009, 08:57 PM
Sampras-Lack of Consistent dominance through his whole career.. He phoned alot of the tournaments throughout his career which always bothered me. Whether it was arrogance or overconfidence, or just plain old emphasis on what really mattered to him.. i dont know

Along, Pete essentially giving up on the French Open after 1996..


These two things always bothered me, or else I think Sampras HANDS DOWN would have been the GOAT and never would be touched by anyone. I mean he never put emphasis on the entire seasons or put his all into the French and clay court seasons and still managed 14 slams, and some deep runs on clay.

Of course injuries did hinder Pete a bit.. So I give him the benefit of the doubt on that. But still outside of 1994, I dunno if Pete really felt the need to have the week in week out dominance and focus on the entire season. ANd thats a shame.. Cause it kind of did come back to bit him in the arse.



Safin- To the EXTREME.. Focus on outside interests and off court shenanigans. I dont think this guy realizes how much talent he really blew. Could have EASILY of been an all time great.


Agassi- Headcase in his early days were problematic or else he would have achieved much more success. He spent alot of his career MIA or being a headcase and still managed 8 slams, career slam, and perhaps the best returner and rebound ace player ever. And by the time he fiinally got his **** together, he was already 29-30. Lots of talent wasted with Agassi as well. He achieved alot but should have had an even greater career IMO

berdych - do i need to say anything more, he's a great player, but a mental nut job and isn't consistent.

safin - disagree with gamesampras about the all time great part, nobody can play like that consistently well. Would of had a better career if he loved the game and put more heart into it. He got injured and i think that started all of it.

quite frankly, i love his game, but i don't really like his attitude, he's a funny guy, but his personality on court is horrible

roddick - the fact he hasn't won another slam, when really he is better than a 'one slam wonder'

to be honest, i like every player, even federer (i just got a little annoyed yesterday with some fans).

Nobody can play consistently as well as Safin played Sampras at the USO or Fed at the AO... But 2 slams for someone as good as Safin was? Come on now. Wouldnt u notice Safins only two slam wins came over two of the greatest players to ever play the game.

do you realise those matches safin played against pete and roger only come round a few times in their careers. Some people build safin up and overrate him. Should he have a better career? yes, does it mean he would? no. He's just completely washed up now.

Safin can win against anyone, but lose against anyone, take nalbandian, he's got skills, and is technically a better player than a few people in the top 5, roddick included, but is inconsistent and can lose against anyone.
