Hello. I decided to make a poll about the 4th to 11th biggest active players fanbases. Who are your favourite of those 7 players? /I consider Del Po`s fanbase as one of the 3 biggest cause it is constructed by nearly all tennis fans because of his kindness and behavior on and out of court/

Voted for Stan, Nishi, Zverev, and Thiem.

Djok is probably my second favorite of the current crop so didn't vote for him.

On an aside, I'd like to welcome you back to the boards, OP. Are we agreed on the most widely detested player?

But shouldn`t a player winning that way to be more disliked? Kyrgios and Tomic aren`t successful, but Andy is, and sometimes he does it affecting the psychics of the opponents with his reactions => he should be even more hated because he is successful in a non-sportsmanship way

Because Kyrgios' and Tomic's problems and demeanors extend off the tennis court as well. Anyway, to get back onto the topic of which tennis players are most liked...
I chose:
Stan Wawrinka - I love his hard-hitting game with many winner especially off the backhand. Also his never give up mentality and mental strength in big matches.
Novak Djokovic - extremely consistent game with no clear weakness, always gracious to opponents, friendly and humorous personality
Alexander Zverev - finally a young talent with some results, strong baseline game with powerful strokes, seems to be some fire in him to excel
Marin Cilic - good heavy-hitting game, great off-court personality and well-controlled reserved personality on-court

This has to be a troll thread......

I get that del Potro is an awesome guy, but he doesn't have the 3rd biggest fan base. The guy sitting at 12 slams does and the OP is very well aware of that

I'm only really a fan of Murray/Raonic altho i do enjoy to see Cilic and Djokovic play well more than i do the others but overall i think i would rate them:
Murray, Raonic, Cilic, Djokovic, Wawrinka, Zverev, Thiem, Nishikori

Nishikori annoys with his constant giving up, i see it too much and i have never really thought his talent as as amazing as everyone makes it out to be. I also think his mental attitude when losing is easily the worst for a top 10 player. So often he will just completely give up and not fight at all unless gifted a way back in. I don't enjoy watching him unless he's playing Raonic (who seems to bring the best out of him more than any other player)

Ok. My favourites and reasons for that:
Stan Wawrinka - I love his beautiful one-handed BH, his strong hitting baseline shots and his strong mentality
Novak Djokovic - consistency, when in peak practically indefeatable; off-court and on-court demeanor and kindness
Milos Raonic - I love his serve and I like how his forehand evolved throughout the years
Dominic Thiem - his very strong physical play - his very powerful serve, powerful forehand, court coverage and when has a day his still-worse-side but beautiful one-handed backhand winners

None of the guys outside the big 4 + wawa have a realistically large enough fanbase to count besides maybe their countrymen.
Every tennis fan is certainly a fan of Fed.
Some prefer the other members of the big 4 and wawa.

Yeah thats about it ,what can I say tennis spectators are bandwagoners and prefer WINNERS ! :eek:

I like Stan the best of those, super entertaining to watch when he's on his game. Even though Rafa has lost some tough matches to Djokovic, I like the fire he plays with and personality.

Why not? I mean, just imagine 2 defenders playing each other. Every rally is build this way: Light serve under 200 kmh, flat return in the centre of the court, slice on the baseline, flat, slice, slice, light topspin again just to defend and this until someone makes an error... every rally to be 20+ shots and this way... this is boring.

Are you talking about the fanbases in this forum or in the tennis world in general? If it's the second, I did a quick sum of the current number of followers these players have on their social media (Twitter, Instagram, and FB), these are are the results:

Djokovic: 18, 410, 102
Murray: 8, 790, 510
Wawrinka: 2, 996, 995
Nishikori: 1, 886, 534
Raonic: 974, 745
Thiem: 479, 559
Zverev: 331, 171*
Cilic: 317, 270

*Alex only has Instagram, and he barely uses it so I counted the followers he has there, plus the default page with his name on FB, you know, the one only has his name and Wikipedia description.

Delpo is a very popular player, at least compared to most of the players on this list. He has a total of 6, 010, 536 followers on all his accounts so this does make his fanbase the third biggest outside the big 2, as you said.

Thank you. I was asking both - to make a stat for myself from the forum, such as at all.
