    For me, Federer. Federer has more of a personality than people here think he does. Would invite Roddick or Safin if they were still around. Maybe I'd invite Gasquet just so he could bring some yayo.

    Agreed Federer would be mad to have a drink with!

    I could imagine Tsonga being the funniest player to have a drink with, Some others would be, Rafael Nadal, Del potro and Wawrinka

    Djokovic. He's an idiotic wild-man sober, I bet he'd be something when he was drunk...

    Actually, scratch that.... He'd probably be an angry drunk who smashes things.

    I'm going to have to go for Laura Robson!

    He would try to be the life of the party, but would end up being really lame.

    He would roar while trying to rip his shirt off only to realize his not even wearing one anymore

    Tsurenko. But if we are talking about male players, then Djokovic probably lol.

    Nadal seems to be the most fun and down-to-earth guy of all the professional tennis players I've seen, so I'd go out with a drink for him, rather than someone like federer who would probably spend the evening talking about himself. :p

    it should be fun, but be careful to avoid finishing the evening in a cell... ;)

    marcos baghdatis would be my choice, he seems to be a cool guy.

    Oh, it really surprised me that you picked Nadal. No, really it did - what an earth-shatteringly unexpected move. I'm floored. Nadal!? Never would have guessed it.

    If I was in my 20s hands down Tomic. Models, fast cars ...

    But a left field choice would be Li Na. I like her sense of humour and she can laugh at herself.

    I'd like a chat with Roger over a few drinks about his tennis career.
    As for the girls, it would have to be Maria. I think Schiavone might be fun too.

    Andy Murray, because we both don't drink, so we would probably have a lot of fun. ;)

    I would be concerned for Nadal. I'd be worried you'd try to spike his drink and take advantage of him..

    Federer is a self serving, egomaniac. I couldn't drink with that primadonna.

    Djokovic or Murray and Nadal seem the most down to earth cats to go to the pub and down some brews with

    I'd have lunch with Murray (chummy mood), dinner with Rafa (sexy mood) and breakfast with Djoko (wake up mood booster ). I'd need a vodka tonic with Fed to forget how annoying he is. Cheers!

    I really think you should go clubbing with Djokovic, not breakfast. He doesn't seem like a breakfast person somehow.

    I'd have a drink with any of them in order of preference Djokovic, Federer, Nadal, Murray

    Djokovic for a night out or lunchtime pint in the pub, Federer for some swanky place where I'd never get into without him (maybe a bar in Wimbledon when that's going on) - or a swiss german bar if they exist, Nadal a drink on the beach somewhere in spain. Murray in.... a backstreet Scottish drinking den? Nah I think I'd give it a miss :lol: Oh ok, a quick drink in a pub in west London nears Queens when that's going on.

    Juan Monaco also seems nice, so I think I'd go with Nadal and Monaco, and if Nadal hangs out with him on a regular basis, then he must be a nice person to be around. :p

    The Fed idea is actually genius. I'd use him to go to the trendiest Hollywood bar (and hope to catch a glimpse of Keanu, my movie crush!) Clubbing with Djoko and beach bumming with Rafa also sound brilliant. Has Novak ever said he was not a morning person? I'm not either, that's why I thought he would be perfect to cheer me out of my grumpy am mood :)

    Lots of creeps and stalkers around here.

    Personally I reckon all tennis players are bores. Let them provide us with mediocre sporting entertainment, but they should get lost when off the court.

    If Nadal only hung around with nice people, you would have zero chance of getting invited.

    I don't know if he isn't a morning person, maybe he is. Just seems he'd be more fun to be around in the evening. But your reasoning is good.

    Actually, I think I'd be one of the first people on the list from Talk Tennis to be invited by Nadal, compared to the other posters on here who are completely obsessed with him. Nadal has that effect on people. Even in his absence, he is even more popular than federer. :p

    Are you saying that out of the group of people who are completely obsessed with him, you are one of the first (completely obsessed) people he'd invite? Well Nadal has a reputation for not being bright, so if that's true I guess he would invite the biggest obsessed fantard and not even think about his personal safety.

    Also I said IF Nadal only hangs around with nice people, then he wouldn't invite you. That statement is a borderline fact.

    Throw your Federer hate out of the window for once. It's not about how many majors they won or what they could achieve. Just because Federer has won more than Nadal it doesn't mean that you need to hate everything about him. I'd hang out with Nadal, why not. Federer looks like one of those goofy funny guys, I'm not sure he drinks high percentages though.

    As for the rest of the top 4 - Murray looks like a total bore, he barely smiles and he's not one of those "serious" funny guys (if you know what I mean). Djokovic would be just plain annoying.

    Out of the top 4 - Sam Querrey hands down. I bet he's a super cool dude.
    The rest: Gulbis, Dimitrov and the French guys - Monfils, Gasquet, Tsonga.

    If we were including retired players Safin obviously.

    I think Tsonga would be fun to hang out with. My French is a little rusty but his English isn't bad. I heard he had a few too many in Toronto and walked into a fire hydrant. :lol:

    He and La Monf seem like great guys, but if you want to party there's probably no substitute for Safin. :)

    Oh for sure. He could probably put back a few. But he's retired.

    a round table of Americans - Roddick, Fish, Querrey, Isner, Bryans, M.Russell, Baker, James Blake etc would be a good time. Conversation shouldn't be lacking with a Harvard grad, two Stanford grads, smart-ass Roddick dropping one liners. Being a music snob I could talk shop with the Bryans, and they all follow other sports. Plus there would be hot women falling all over them and a chance Brooklyn Decker would be there as well.

    also Bernie Tomic because I'd need a safe ride home...

    I wouldn't want to get drunk with any of the male pros, but drinks with Nadal might be enjoyable. I hate some of his antics, but he seems like a cool enough guy off-court. Maybe Del Potro too. I'd do acid with Murray though.
