    I don't hate any of the players. I love Federer and his game, I admire Djokovic's game, am indifferent toward's Murray's, and don't particularly like Nadal's. I respect all of them and their achievements.

    It's the fans (tards, really) that are irritating, from all fan groups. I can definitely see how fans can ruin the image and perception of the players themselves.

    I don't really hate any of them, but their fanboys really drive me nuts, especially those who act like bullies just because they are in the majority. Don't hide in the crowd. Fight one-on-one, fight fair.

    I'm a Djoker fan, but also like Fed and Murray. Not so keen on Nadal, but still can't deny he's an all time great.

    From general experience, Murray seems to have the best fanbase (maybe because he hasn't won a slam yet?). There is a constant level of Murray bashing on these forums, but they don't take the bait. It's quite admirable.

    Do I hate Murray? I don't think so. I don't like how he plays or how he acts on or off the court but "hate"? Probably not. However, I am taking matters into my own hands to combat the smothering UK-Mardism.

    I'm a Fed fan, and enjoy watching Djokovic, Nadal, and Murray as well. I never hated a player or their game - though I admit sometimes some player's games can be a bit annoying, it never resorts to hatred for me.

    Like Fed
    Like Djokovic a little, mostly neutral
    Dislike Nadal and Murray (playing style and on-court demeanour)

    Hate is too strong a word. My other fav players are Tsonga and Delpo.

    I'm a fan of Nadal and really like Federer too. Am fairly indifferent to Djoko and Murray (but appreciate their talent and Mr Djokovic's bendiness, especially from a photography point of view!). Have a huge list of players I love though.. :)

    I'm a Delpo fan and don't hate any other player, of the four I like nadal the most, then nole and roger, i don't like murray style at all, but I don't hate him or anything, actually is very annoying how federer fans behave in this forums and sometimes nadals fans, but the federer fans are really annoying. I really enjoy watching all of them play.

    Nadal fan. Don't hate anyone for making a living hitting a ball over the net. That's beyond ridiculous.

    Nadal/Murray/Djokovic/don't really like Fed but respect what he's done.

    Murray moved up to #2 since he hasn't won a major yet, and he has a great attitude and the funniest humor of the four

    I like Nadal the least probably because i can connect with him/understand him the least since his english is pretty bad

    so i don't really find him relate-able but if he spoke english i'm sure i'd like him more.

    Yeah Djokovic used to have the best fanbase untilhe started winning everything and then The Tards duly appeared just like with Fed and Nads.

    Anyway, I'm a fan of Federer and Djokovic. Nadal is ok, but don't really support him. Don't really like Muzza, but he is a very good player and I don't really laugh at players and disrespect them.

    Nadal, Murray... not sure about Novak and Fed, I've usually liked Novak better, but I'm not a fan of either.

    Agree totally. The fans of whatever player who are so blinded by the adoration they have for that player and can't see said player's faults, make me want to puke.

    Yes, like after almost getting beaten by some unknown players twice in a row, they still believe their idol is gonna win against the #1 in the world which is in very great form. Their idol's magic has not appeared anywhere lately but will definitely come into place when facing currently the best player on earth. They are blinded by their adoration and his idol's past glories and can just forget all his idol's faults (like playing sh!tty against non-top player), which really makes people want to puke.

    Get off your high horse. I agree with you that Djokovic is currently a better player than Federer and that Federer will likely lose if he meets Djokovic in the SF but there is always a chance, no matter how small, that Federer could appear in God-mode on that particular day at a tournament he has won 6 previous times whereas Djokovic has only one it once. I would say Djokovic has an 80% chance of beating Federer if they meet, but I would never say Djokovic has a 100% chance and if you do, good for you.

    Novak is the best player on earth? If that is so, why didn't he win the FO against Nadal and why did Novak lose three clay tournaments in a row to Nadal this year. Also, where was Novak at Indian Wells this year? I believe he lost to Isner in the SF and Federer went on to defeat Nadal for that title is that correct? In addition, how many titles has Novak won in 2012? Two right. How many has Federer won? Four. How is it that an old man at almost 31 has won more titles than the best player this year according to you? I know Djokovic won a slam and Federer did not, but still.

    Nadal is the only one who warrants any hate IMO. I've hated each of the top 4 at one point in time. Fed grew on me and I became indifferent to Murray and Novak.

    Assuming you admit you are the kinda person you describe (making people puke), bravo to that. And it must have pained you to say that Djokovic has a 80% chance to beat Fed, which is very generous really.

    But wait, if we are talking purely about possibility that we can't count out anyone who is still in the competition, and that anything can happen unless he is out, I don't think anyone would waste their time arguing about something that is so obvious. But hey, you are a troll, wasting time doing something meaningless is kinda your forte right. So I'm gonna excuse you on this one, and reiterate again our deal, we are betting on who's gonna win when djokovic and federer meet in the SF, and you look forward to me losing that bet, which implies that you think fed will win against djokovic. But now you chicken out, why? Never mind, you are just trolling. That's what a troll does right?

    Nole is the best player on earth currently, but that does not mean he has to win everything to become one, the same applies to Fed, who does not win everything, but still is considered the GOAT (at least by *******s), so your argument is just silly here (as expected). And did I argue with you how many titles they won this year? No. It seems like you need to work on your reading skills as well. And you can't just randomly choose one out of a hundred examples to prove your point. If so, then why don't you tell me how many slams Fed won this past two years? How many matches Fed won against Djokovic lately?

    The best player currently is the #1 ranked player currently. I hope it's not too hard for a troll to understand.

    Fed fans are the worst, very closely followed by Nadal's. Murray's fans tend to just be desperate and Djokovic fans are the second coming of the New York cheesecake.

    Didn't you still believe Djokovic could beat the current and all time greatest clay court player even after he almost lost to Seppi and average clay courter Tsonga? A bit biased methinks..

    Djokovic is favourite no doubt, but judging by the 5 slam meetings from 2010 US Open onwards, two were Straight sets wins for Djokovic in very easy fashion, one was a win for Federer, 2 were 5 set wins for Djokovic that could have gone both ways. If only Novak had double faulted against Federer instead of Nadal (at the French this year) Novak might have never lost to Nadal in a slam final.. but oh well.

    Djokovic hasn't looked that great all the way through, himself. Losing a set to oldman Steppy? Old man Fed will probably win a set, especially if it goes to a tiebreak. But you never know, he has a small chance at the win. laugh all you want, but I wasn't laughing when Federer chose the French Open 2011 semi to play vintage tennis and take out the guy I was rooting for. Why Federer, why? Why couldn't you just lose that time?

    I suspect you weren't laughing either :lol:

    If you've noticed, you would have known this is just a parody of what the ******* says about Djokovic's fans, when clearly he does the same himself.

    I hate connotatins such as 'tards'. People who use them lack imagination and probably intelligence. The interesting survey in this case would be: how many here care about tennis and how many are here only to wind others up. I fear the camp of the former is dwindling.
