    1) Ferrero- he can play on any surface. He won the french last year. Got to the finals of the US and the semis of the Australian . And the quarters of the wimbeldon. He would have won the French this year if he didn't get injured
    2) Federer
    3) Coria

    1) Federer - if he has any weaknesses, I havn't found them.
    2) Moya - when he's on, has the best forehand in the business.
    3) Coria - the fastest player on tour (Blake being a close 2nd).
    4) Safin - probably the most physically gifted player, and arguably he most talented (with the possible exception of Federer).
    5) Henman - the best athlete, IMO.

    saf for physical gifts and talent, fed for use of his physical gifts and talent, JC for his versatility, henman for the old school serve and volley, coria for the counterpunching, hewitt for the tenacity, roddick for his pure power (and nothing else), moya for his enormous forehand and shalken for making me feel better about my serve

    IMO if your looking at the best player based on their strokes Safin is better than Federer
    forehands= both very good
    serve= Federer better placement, Safin raw power
    volley=Federer pretty good, Safin pretty capable
    backhand=Safin arguably the best two-hander ever, Federer a pretty good one-hander that can be vulnerable at times

    Idon't think Safin's forehand can compare to Feds. I think there is a big difference in their volleying too. Another thing to look at would be speed around the court :)

    1) Federer -he has got all the shots, and the brain
    2) Safin -he has got all the shots

    3) Henman -the most elegant player these days and has the best hands in the game

    4) Moya -a player with a lot of touch and can play on all surfaces

    With all due respect, I disagree with everything you say. Safin's forehand is at least as good as Feds, same goes for volleys. Also, Safin is amazingly fast for a guy his size. Fed is smoother, and makes the game look more effortless.

    Has anyone any idea what's up with Marcelo Rios? Is he retired, or is he getting ready for a comeback?

    1) Ferrero as he is the best to watch and will always be my favourite player.

    2) Henman as he is my fellow country man and he is the best volleyer in the game and exciting to watch.

    3) I enjoyed watching Gaudio the last two weeks on the clay but I think he was just on fire and won't be able to play like that again.

    He has tried to come back but with no luck, injuries don't let him. Think he's been playing some challenger out there but I'm not sure. Weeks ago it was said he would come to play Davis Cup against Peru with Massu and Gonzalez but finally didn't.

    Looks like we won't be able to see him in action again, at least at his best form. Pity :(
