  8. Ancic, Robredo, Davydenko, Ljubicic = 0

    These guys are truly the RODNEY DANGERFIELDS of the ATP!

    I think Ancic is a cool player.
    But you put him with the snorefest of the atp.

    I like Murray, I like Nadal. I'm kind of still waiting for the next big American player that not noly will be a Champion, but will be likable.

    Besides Fed, it has to be Justin Henin, men or women.

    Observation: I don't think I have ever met anyone who doesn't like Tommy Haas! The guy is like Raymond.

  21. Interesting, I would have thought if anybody was removed from the SNOREFEST group it would be Robredo.... but Ancic seems the most popular of that group.
    (I guess I just think he is flashier with the bandana and long hair...)


    Also I would like Blake more if he didn't walk like he just got done benching 350lbs and was really proud about it.
    And Murray's public consensus has drastically changed from Pusher with bad attitude, to hungry-next Grand Slam winner-do it all player.

    Safin, Safin, Safin, Safin, Haas, Gasquet, Berdych, Henman, Baghdatis. The rest of them can go to hell as far as I care

    I think a mixture of Brad Gilbert getting inside his head and extra maturity that comes with age and experience has changed things for him. I think he will still always have that slice of rebel in him but it looks like he has calmed it down a bit and is now using the energy against the opponent rather that himself which is important for any player, but even more so to one who is a bit tempramental.

    When Safin get's mad you know he is either going to totally self destruct, or use it positively like he did when he first started working with Lundgren. Hopefully Murray can keep things together more often than not :)

    I really like to see Roddick do well. I think he has a lot of talent and just needs to have that "breakthrough" tournament.
