    Monfils, Roddick, Davydenko. roddick is american, hard hitting and awesome. Monfils is always entertaining and Davydenko is kind of the little guy that could who is very impressive. If you want to go outside the top 20, id say Querrey and Isner. Thankfully, most top players are pretty entertaining

    Roddick hard hitting? His serve is hit hard, sure, he rarely hits shots that would be defined as hard hitting. The majority of the top 20 hits ground strokes harder than he does, and at least Davydenko of the 3 you mentioned in your post hits his groundies faster than Roddick (Monfils is really a variable, somedays he can play aggressively, and others he seems content to play as a pusher.)

    Safin, O. Rochus, Santoro.

    Well, at least one of these guys will show up next year.

    I guess I need to find some new favorites.

    Hewitt is my favorite regardless of ranking.

    Others outside the top 5 I like are Gonzo and Davydenko.

    I've always thought his forehand was pretty explosive, or maybe he just makes it look like it is. Nonetheless, hes entertaining. I agree with you on Monfils. I am surprised that davydenko hits harder than roddick as i will believe your information. When was the last time davydenko and roddick played?

    Roddick...he is something like 8-1 head to head against davedenko. His only loss was last yr in Miami when davedenko was on fire and won the whole thing. If anyone thinks he hits the ball harder then roddick is wrong. While roddick doesn't hit the fuzz off the ball like he did 03-04 he can still hit that forehand pretty hard. He hit a 104mph forehand against Fed in miami that year. Also didn't anyone notice him over powering Murray at Wimby this year?

    My favorite player is Lleyton Hewitt. After that, probably Wawrinka, Dimitrov, Blake, and Safin

    The usual- Hewitt, Safin, Ferrero

    Bellucci, Cuevas, Zverev, Dimitrov, Gulbis

    Like that's a big achievement....he's probably the only guy in the top that hits even slower than Roddick!

    Gasquet. For me, he's the most enjoyable to watch possibly even above Fed.

    I like Safin,Roddick and hewitt. Obviously there are better players with more attractive games but i love Safin's & Roddick's personality and i like hewitt's attitude on court.
