I posted this in another thread but I think it's even more aposite for this one.
I would imagine the average person on this site is far more knowledgable about their tennis than the average member of the public. A public poll would probably have a much higher return for Federer 80% - 90%. What conclusions would you draw from that?
The answer is obviously going to be a trollish - 'ninety something per cent of everyone are morons but I'm one of the few right thinking minority. I'm an Edsel, Delorian, Betamax and a Cherry Coke guy and I know a winner when I see one.' Good luck with that.
