Which player has wanted to win the most? Is it Federer, Petros, Lendl, Borg, Nadal-?
Big Dave and Marion Bartoli.
Nalbandian. Man that guy can eat.
probably jimmy connors.
definitely jimmy connors, playing slams for that long period of time waaayyy past his prime
Navratilova. Making a comeback at age 46 is definitely hungry, if a little sad.
LOL. that was a good one. :twisted::twisted:
Either Nadal/hewitt or Roddick
Thomas Muster. That guy was an animal who never gave up on a single point.
Nalby - no contest.
Gotta be Fat Dave Nalbandian, i have heard that he eats small children fir lunch, and Big Mac and Company for dinner! :shock:
Nalby is the HOAT then
Lol, great one!
Lendl. If McEnroe had worked as hard as Lendl did, Federer could still be no2 in the majors list. Lendl just took what he had and made the most of it.
I going have to second that!
Sad? I don't see it that way...she really gave mixed doubles a shot in the arm....not like she was embarrasing herself out there...
lots of names come to mind: Lendl, Connors, Fed, Sampras even...
not sure how I'd rank them...they all hate(d) to lose a match
Connors played past his prime, true...competitive spirit kept him, well...competitive! Prime case of mind driving body past its physical limits...
federer, of course
Nalbandian is the answer.
He may say that he's out because of "hip surgery" this season, but I suspect the real reason might have something to do with a massive quantity of buffet coupons he somehow incurred.
More Nalbandian Jokes Plz!
But seriously, the last 20 odd years of tennis, I've never seen anyone more driven than Jimbo......
lol, funny pic. taylor dent, cos hes the roundest.
Does no one remember that Lendl tanked a lot of his matches? The guy was a serious workhorse off-court, but on-court he was prone to big meltdowns.
Nadal. 10 chars.
Thomas Muster was a fighter, also Michael Chang,
they played a lot of 5 setters, and Chang was always
cramping but still fighting
haha nice one Blinkism!
Federer: "I'm the greatest. In tennis. In wii sports, in everything"
Nalbandian: "Maybe in tennis. But not in my arena. You may be No.1 in the grass court and hardcourt. But I'm no.1 in the foodcourt!"
Nalbandian: I challenge you!
Federer: *Scoffs* "I have 15 grand slam championships. No way you'll beat me. Plus I have inspiration from Mirka. She has taught me great technique"
Nalbandian dons his trademark bandana

Nalbandian: Raaaaawwwwwr I am No.1 in the on the Food Court!!!

Nalbandian accepts his trophy as new king and no.1 of the ATP (association of tasty pies).
By pcxlfan at 2009-06-04
Nalbandian is the only correct answer.
wow, he really looks like a topspin one on this picture...
and the guy was so hungry he wanted to eat tim henman !
whoever wears this!!!
I havent eaten for a week now, man Im hungry, bet Nalby never tried that in his life..
Ill play anyone for food!!
I like how you guys go completely off topic and turn this into an hilarious thread!
These pics are hilarious!! Plz keep em coming :twisted:
Great thread this turned into! LOL.
interesting... no one mentioned Kafelnikov, the guy that once said you gotta squeeze as much dough as you can...
Kafelnikov, Goolagong, and Lundgren are all huge at the moment. Bartoli and Nalby are the 2 fattest active players
True, and in the 80`s Chezh player Tomas Smid said the same thing something like "you have to play as much as you can, who knows what will happen if you get injured".
Maybe the players from poor countries with poor childhoods are the hungriest?
Nalbandian eats his opponent. Not photoshopped btw
Coolest picture ive seen in a long time.
His arms look very fit though compared to his belly
Connors in the modern era by far.
That said, I have to give credit to Muster after his injury. He was told he would never play tennis again, yet he was stoking balls in a wheelchair during his recovery. For those of you who remember him, he was a gruff no nonsense guy, but after he came back and won the tournement where the car had struck him before the final (Lipton now the Sony Ericsson) he actually had a tear in his eye.
Nalbandian, for sure.
Nalbandian is called Fat Dave for a reason.
Why does his Bio say he weighs 170? Sure it isn't all muscle but that also isn't a lot of weight for a guy his height. and dont give me that video i have seen it
Could be the Serena Williams scenario. Her bio used to lists her in 2007-2008 at 135lbs (a time she was particularly overweight), while Martina Hingis was listed at 130lbs
I saw with my own eyes when wta and usopen.org listed serena as 135.
Here is a thread showing others laughing back then at Serena's weight listing http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=136060
Here is Hingis's weight listing of 130lbs. http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/player/martina-hingis_2257889_3491
