    So I thought I'd start off with some....

    O.K only good positive things you really appreciate about a player. And please keep the comments on how ridiculous some one is for liking this or that. If you don't agree just read and move on. Please this one time refrain from commenting negatively on it.

    If you like it, we love it.
    thanx

    I'll start it off

    Rafa

    fight style
    his athleticism
    His humbleness
    his boyishness
    his shot making
    his good nature
    his uncle
    his net game
    and most importantly his tennis

    Fed
    His shot making
    his anticipation
    his ability to be a brick wall at net

    Nole
    His all around game


    Murray

    His personality

    Davydenko
    His game when it is on

    Roddick
    His personality
    his passion for tennis
    his passion for american tennis

    I like how biased and superficial your observations are. Keep it up.

    Oh and that's great but I didn't ask you what you put as a negative

    and Rafa's sexiness, does that suit you better?

    Nadal is somewhat boyish. I don't find him sexy at all, although I wouldn't call him ugly, either. I found Kuznetsov sexy (when he played James Blake late last year). He's not model beautiful, but has a nice body. Bolelli's not bad, either. He looked pretty good when playing Massu earlier this year.

    sondraj - my apologies. I was in fact kinda teasing.

    What do I appreciate about certain tennis players?

    Federer - his sense of fashion, hand-eye coordination, footwork, his actual coach Mirka

    Nadal - his wheels, the fact that he's learned to play lefty, his willingness to work on his game for faster surfaces, sense of family and community

    Roddick - the big first serve, and his continual use of working in the kicker on the ad court side

    Murray - his wearing Fred Perry clothes

    Davydenko - his wife is cute, he's a great all-around player, his quiet nature

    Safin - most interesting personality on the ATP tour, his footwork prior to his knee surgeries

    Henin - her groundstrokes are so pretty

    Ivanovic - great brunette hair

    Williamses - winning despite odds and criticism (though I'm not a true fan)

    Kirilenko - sporting great Stella McCartney Adidas apparel and bags

    Federer: His movement, his fluidity

    Rafael Nadal: his 2hbh, footspeed

    Safin: his smoking hotness

    Gonzales: His go-for-broke mentality, his forehand

    James Blake: His forehand, his...smoking hotness, damn I'm shallow.

    Roddick: His post-match interviews, his oblique non-answers to journalists' stupid questions

    Davydenko: his non-commercialism

    Gasquet: his backhand

    Hewitt: his attitude. I know everyone thinks it sucks, but I think it's hilarious.


    Henin: her backhand

    Sharapova: her stylish service motion, her unpredictable fashion choices, her lankiness

    Jankovic: her attitude

    Ivanovic: her funny screaming into her own fist

    Serena Williams: her raw talent

    Venus Williams: her fitness

    Bartoli: that she makes the clunkiest service motion I've ever seen somehow get serves over and in

    Hingis: Her court coverage

    Mauresmo: her grace and dignity

    Kimmy Kim: her slides, her attitude

    Chakvetadze: her braid

    Maria Kirelinko: her ability to turn grown men into drooling idiots

    I really admire Nadal's fighting style/spirit. I do not think many have that same intensity now, nor in the past. For that, I think he is up there with the very best of them. Name some of the greatest of all time, and in that category he would be there too, hands down. Tremendous shot making ability also.

    Fed, of the listed, would only chose his anticipation. Elitism might be a positive thing. A belief in oneself that you can and should do it all and win them all.

    Davydenko for his consistency, and lack of fear of a name or game.

    Roddick has great personality. I think he gets knocked way too much.

    Federer - His greatness. And unlike every single great player before him, he rarely ever tanks, no matter what tournament he's playing.

    Nadal - Amazing fighting spirit and fitness. He also has great hands from anywhere on the court.

    Djokovic - Beautiful forehand, solid backhand.

    Roddick - Crazy good serve. Funniest guy on tour.

    Henin - Beautiful backhand

    Sharapova - ...nothing. Okay, fine, she's a fighter.

    Serena - Is capable of hitting the ball better than any woman out there.

    Venus - Fights hard and stays fit.

    Jankovic - Very solid game

    Ivanovic - Solid game, most likable personality in interviews of all the players.

    That's enough.
