Don't know why but I find Hingis more ravishing than Kournikova. :P

Hingis led the world in stalkers. So I'm not surprised.

For me definitely John McEnroe, but I think people forget how good Todd Woodbridge was as well, so I would rate him second.

Well, the URLs work. So just enter the URLs into your browser-

And if that doesn't work then your computer is a loser.

According to Peter Fleming, the best doubles team is John McEnroe and anyone else.

Hingis was infinitely more popular than anyone in today's game. And a huge portion of her followers were male. Anyone who isn't aware of this was probably not alive at the time.

John McEnroe and John Bromwich would be an awesome doubles team, the two Johns.

Yes it would be.

John McEnroe is obviously a great choice. Mustard mentioned Bromwich. Roy Emerson is a possibility.

Another one is Tom Okker I don't think he was the greatest doubles player ever I do think he is up there with just about anyone.

The most awesome doubles performance I've ever seen was the destruction of Smith and Van dillen by Rod Laver and John Newcombe in the 1973 Davis Cup Final. Laver was indescribably great and Newcombe was a bit lower at merely fantastic.

The Obvious Name that crops up is John Mcenroe.

Bob Hewitt and Frew McMillan was a great team who would have matched up to any one. Their demolition of a young Mcenroe- Fleming was too god.

Other great teams post war Laver- Emerson, Newcombe- Roche and the woodies.

My vote goes to Martina, but Navratilova (surprised--and that's putting it mildly--that nobody mentioned her yet), with McEnroe second.

If I may... (http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=334988)

If I shall answer the question, it's McEnroe.

LMAO nice try, the only problem being, I'm not a Hingis fan, not a Nadal fan and Bulls? .....I'm a Kournikova fan, have no favorite male player, and don't have any affiliation with Bulls.

Leander Paes: does'nt have much else other than a spectacular net game, yet has a career slam.

Also, i think Hingis is hot !!
