    Federer for me. But this is so subjective, you won't get an answer.

    There is no comparison... yesterday I watched Roger Federer play on Centre Court in person and I was blown away at his tennis. It's incredible to watch live before your eyes.

    Federer, duh!!!

    Murray is quite boring, IMO.

    And having seen Fed play before, I gotta say he is even better live!!

    Murray is not better live, he is worse... at least on hardcourts.

    Murray.

    Federer has the prettier game, but you can expect better points with Murray.

    To me there's no question. Federer all the way. Everyone can have their own opinion though. Mine is that Murray's game is terrible to watch.

    I can't watch Murray I was dying today watching him in a 20 shot slice rally fest with Gulbis that ended with Gulbis missing a slice..I don't know how Murray racks up so many winners he never seems to be hitting offensive shots.

    He hits defensive shots which turn out to be winners which makes him a counter puncher

    It is not a joke, it is trolling. Why are you destroying guy's thread with your nonsense?

    Is this a black list of people who are free to be attacked and bashed now?
    I am again abused because of how I vote in the polls. Why is there an option for Murray at all, if people are not allowed to vote for him in this poll?
    I am felling oppressed because I can't express my free will by voting how I fell, without being abused and harassed by certain posters who are unable to tolerate different opinions. Please stop with that practice.

    I simply do not find Federer entertaining at all, hence Murray is more entertaining player to watch for me.

    You can express your opinion just fine, it's the vitriolic and overly defensive fashion that gets you made fun of in this forum.

    No I can't, it is my different opinion that is not tolerated. It is obvious here.

    Fed for me,not even close.I think Murray is very talented and has an excellent tennis brain but unless he's playing top guys when he steps it up I don't find his tennis particulary entertaining.

    murray is fun to watch when he plays the right players otherwise he sort of just pushes his way past regular opponents.

    federer is electric even when he plays ggl and lu.

    Lately, it seems like Fed plays better against easier opponents than guys in the Top 4.

    Hopefully he can find his old form by the semi's so we can see him click against guys like Djokovic and/or Murray.

    So far, so good.

    Murray, on the other hand, looked average against Kendrick and pushed his way to victory against Gulbis. He'll probably push his way through Troicki and Wawrinka.

    People derive humour from it, therefore it is a joke. Nonsense? I've contributed to this thread. Have you?

    Murray by a long shot. I love his slice and versatility. His effort makes me want to say Vamos like I do with Rafa. :D

    Federer has humiliated top, top players in semis and finals of slams several times:

    Hewitt
    Roddick
    Nadal
    Djokovic
    Murray

    He doesn't just feast on low-ranked journeymen like Murray!

    seriously, we don't have to discuss this hear. federer's playstyle is far more attractive except for those who don't like him at all.
    tennis-wise, it's obvious.

    Actually it's a question that you will always know the answer regardless of what is actually answered.

    Depends on who's playing who. Watching Federer play Nadal is a total snooze fest.



    Watching Murray toy with Djokovic is quite fun however.

    That would be a better poll:
    Federer or Djokovic
    or
    Murray or rainy day.

    I love rain though.
