    Winners

    OK so basicly I am gonna have 8 threads each with multiple choice polls where you will vote for 4 of the 8 poll choices.

    You are voting on who would win a match between player1 and 2, 3 and 4, 5 and 6 , and 7 and 8 in their prime or just upon who your favourite player in the match up is

    After a week of voting the poll will be shut and the winners will prodceed and so on untill we have a winner in 6 weeks time!

    Please do not vote for 2 players in the same match up as voting will be public and both your votes discarded!

    Match-ups (in draw format)

    Federer vs Gaudio
    Kuerten vs Djokovic
    Safin vs Johansson
    Hewitt vs Gonzales

    great idea

    Federer: his name sounds cool

    Kuerten: only player in the 21st century to win more than one RG and a World Tour Final

    Safin: GOAT for racquet breaking

    Hewitt: has two of one letter consecutively in his name, one for each slam he won

    The Kuerten - Djokovic one sure is a tough choice. Like in the Soderling - Delpo one in the other thread, I vote for the future :p

    So you are saying that Safin, Johansson, Gonzales, and Hewit are all better than Djokovic :eek:.

    Get real.

    Even if this is a case Djokovic dose not have to be in the same quarter than Federer.
    Obviously biased poll.
    Too bad. This could have been fun only if it was done properly. Will not participate any further.

    its just a bit of fun and im sorry if you have a bromance going with djokovic and arent happy that he has to be put up against federer in the 2nd round, hey who knows he might win we know how some of the people on here react when someone wins a few matches in a row :p

    Also look at this "quarter":

    "Soderling vs
    Del Potro
    Roddick vs
    Costa"

    So all these four are better than Djokovic? Unbelievable.

    Sorry to say but this is really an incompetent poll. Nadal's half of the poll is ridiculously weaker. You are either malicious or had no clue when you were making these polls.

    You cannot be serious.

    As I said, you are either malicious and are fixing the poll to get advantage for your favorite players, or have no clue. Either way this is a failed attempt.

    Putting three times GS winner (Kuerten) vs two times GS winner (Djokovic) in the first round and than winner facing Federer, while in that last quarter you have only three one slam wonders for the total of 3 GS titles in the whole quarter. Ridiculous. :eek:

    So the first quarter have 6 GS titles among three players excluding Federer's 16. (16+1+3+2)
    The second quarter has 5 GS titles (2+1+0+2). Second hardest but heads below the first.
    The third and fourth quarters are laughable.
    In the third only Nadal has won any GS titles. (9+0+0+0)
    and
    The last quarter has 3 GS titles among all 4 players including one slamless player (0+1+1+1).

    LOL.

    Total and epic fail.

    So what you're saying is Nadal gets handed a cakewalk draw yet again. I agree this is disgraceful.

    To be fair he probably thought up the strongest players sans Nadal whilst making the first poll then by the time he got to the next ones there were only weaker players remaining. Easily fixable with a few changes to the next 'round' even if one of Kuerten/Djokovic (looks like Guga as of now) got shafted here.

    Giving Nadal another cakewalk draw is unforgivable though.

    Well, the fact is that you, for whatever reason (malicious or ignorant), did a pretty bad jobs when creating these polls, and should not be surprised when people criticize you for that. you should have used some objective measure (number of GS titles - the most obvious for example) to create a seedings and than make pairings. So it should have been:

    1. Federer 16
    2. Nadal 9
    3. Kuerten 3
    4. Hewitt 2
    5. Safin 2
    6. Djokovic 2
    7. Roddick 1
    8. Del Potro 1
    ...

    How hard is this ?????
