Ideal current pros to watch on each slam surface?

GotGame?

Rookie
Which current pros do you enjoy the most to watch on each slam surface? Please post your reasoning and don't mention the same player on more than one surface.

Rebound Ace - Safin - amazingly powerful shotmaking
Clay - Coria - graceful movement and his feel for the game showcases the best on here
Grass - Federer - smooth, classic all-around game shines on grass
DecoTurf/Plexipave - Agassi - enough said

I may post my favorite women pros later on.

wouldn't you switch agassi and safin up their,, agassi's best surface is rebound ace
Safin has won a slam on Rebound Ace and reached two finals as opposed to winning one slam on the USO surface with no other final appearances. Agassi has won a slam on both surfaces more than once, so I gave Safin the benefit of the doubt.

So would I.

I know you asked us to not list the same player for more than one surface, but that's my honest answer.

Oh yeah, and my reasoning is: because I enjoy watching the man play.

I agree, federer on any surface

but to play along with the game:

Rebound Ace - Safin
Clay - Nadal
Grass - Federer
DecoTurf/Plexipave - Roddick

Clay - Marat Safin. Serve-volleyers just look so out of place on clay, and Safin pulls together a crazy attacking all-court game that I like to watch. Also Tim Henman, for the way he sets up his game.

Rebound Ace - Taylor Dent, Max Mirnyi. The surface makes them play lots of volleys,

DecoTurf/Plexipave - Fabrice Santoro. Surface is fast enough to let him play his slicy dinky game.

Jonas Bjorkman. Serve and volley - the fast surface helps his serve just that bit that he needs. Also Mario Ancic.


Note the marked absence of Roger Federer. That's because I've seen way too much of him. When I see several of his matches in all of the tournaments of note, it gets kind of old. Also when he wins all the time, it gets less interesting - I find it more fun to watch a competition than a display.

Grass: obviously Federer...he's really the standard for excellence, in all of tennis really

Clay: Nadal...just relentless and explosive in his shot-making. It'll be interesting to see how he fares during the upcoming hard court summer circuit

Hard Court: Federer, although Safin I think is right here if he keeps his head on straight

Hall of Fame
I guess there are people who like to watch ugly, laboring games.

I'd watch Federer anywhere, and Safin on his good days, Agassi on hard courts.

Clay - Nadal

Not sure if they have played before, but have Rocchus and Nadal played on good old red clay? I love Rocchus, but I'm curious to see how we would handle Nadal's freaky topspin (unless he plays everything on the rise or waaaay behind baseline).
