    Djokovic's is really full of information and I like that. So I choose his.

    From his website:

    Interesting that the top five in the Race are the top five in the Rankings as well.
    http://www.atpworldtour.com/tennis/3/en/rankings/championsrace/default.asp

    Why does it have four tournaments for Nadal? He has only played in three AFAIK. Roddick has also only played four and it lists them as five.

    The Vamos Brigade sure is interesting!
    Roger's front page I find a little sterile but his forum is great.
    Djoko's also got lots of news. I'm not sure what AFAIK's are?

    Heh. It just means "as far as I know".

    The too much black on Rafa's site is not very aesthetically pleasing to my eye.

    Are there any other amazing tennis player sites?
    AFAIK thanks, they list the tournaments because points were deducted in his rankings for missing Dubai and Benidorm Davis cup starts Friday. Spain - Serbia. Rafa and Djoko.

    Clint Thomas by far ;)
    Or isn't it up yet? Well in that case it will be the nicest site and forum soon.

    Roger's front page has the weather news on it, gives you an idea about how captivating their main subject is :lol:

    Yeah because the weather has nothing to do with outdoor tennis....


    I like Novak and Roger's sites. They're more informative (and easier to navigate around). A Murray's is also good.

    absolutely ridiculous!:-? Tennis is played in the elements not in a vacuum. Seems very feasible to me.

    Yep. The whole point of the 'weather report' (which i find useful) is that you know what the weather etc is like on the day of his matches. Or the day before his match, to give you an idea of what the climate is like for that particular tourney. Something tennis fans are keen to know about prior to a match. Well some hard-core do fans anyway.

    By site, do you mean web site or body site?

    Just general first impressions, first page content, news etc. Does it give an idea of the player?

    I like the tour map on Roger's site and that the forum has fewer pictures than Nadals, don't need to scroll too much.

    But TW forum rules, true warfare and intelligent discussions :)

    Djoko's has the final against Ferrer for full download and watching. That's service!

    Novak's and Andy's both look pretty good - polished site designs, lots of information without appearing cluttered, videos, etc.
    Nadal's is relatively sparse on info, and the black background was a poor choice.
    Federer's site looks like something from geocities in 1999. There's very little multimedia and the Ask Roger thing seems to add like 3 questions a year.

    Nice comments I quite agree! Personally I like Novak's, I can get all his tennis info easily don't have to surf around to different sites. Definitely nice clean overview.
