    Look at all of their official websites (or their myspace pages, if you can tell the real ones from the fakes ones).

    In Andy Roddicks profile on the Tennis Warehouse website it says that he likes Dave Mathews Band and John Mayer.

    Yeah Pete Sampras likes DMB as well. And I think it was Safin that likes Linkin Park (meh)

    Tennis players have always liked rock-music for as long as I can remember.
    That's a plus, IMO.

    I've heard that Federer also likes Nickelback. Andy Murray says he listen to the black eyed peas on his Ipod and Svetlana Kuznetsova likes hip-hop. But I think that you can see what players like to listen on that tennis magazine for teens. Forgot the name...

    Pete Sampras' all time favorite is Pearl jam, Serena Williams loves Green Day and Rancid. Andre Agassi likes/liked Def Leppard, Duran Duran, Motley Crue and the Chilli Peppers.

    So it seems even the players that aren't American listen to American music. Maybe we do have something going for us?

    I am a very big Dave Mathews Band fan, but I guess that's totally irrelevant.

    Sounds like some Peter Lundgren influence there.

    I read somewhere...

    Guga digs Ben Harper and Bob Marley (reggae in general, Peter Tosh, Jimmy Cliff, et al). And, fittingly, U2.
    Corretja likes U2 and Bon Jovi.
    Seems like a lot of the Euro pros like their Bon Jersey. Hmmm.
    Jenny Crapriati likes Outkast. She had the PA play Bombs over Baghdad for her intro tune once.

    Gambill likes Reba McIntyre. Something tells me he is a big fan of Cher's, as well. Seems like he might be into Bronski Beat and Frankie Goes to Hollywood.

    Hewitt's gotta love Jimmy Barnes and AC/DC.

    Wait, I'm getting a little deja vu ... uhm, something I read right here at TW.
    Not to get all condescending on your ass (I won't post a link), but I think there is another thread like this somewhere. Might have been scrapped, who knows (I suppose I could use the search function). Anyway, if I remember, there was some funny stuff on it.

    Edit: Pete Sampras was into Zeppelin for a while. I see him as a Stones guy too.

    That something would be wrong. Try U2, Fleetwood Mac, Matchbox 20. He's met Reba and likes her personally, but not country music.





    Start with the one in my signature and add all the players that he has listed on his page, those are real. The Federer, Safin, Sampras, Agassi, and Roddick pages are not authentic.

    Thanks, I think I will try them.
    ;) Well, except Matchbox 20.
    Fee, I absolutely knew I'd "GET" you with a Jan-Mike crack or two.
    Thanks for the true 411.

    You can make all the 'Jan-Mike cracks' you want, and you can try to 'GET' me, if that's what floats your boat, but please understand that I will stick up for my friends when I feel that needlessly incorrect information is being spread about them to an audience where some might be inclined to believe that crap.
