Hall of Fame
Nadal for me (I am a Maestronian). I liked Djokovic more in the past, but for me his fanbase is terrible. All fanbases are bad, and I know it is not his fault, but it is what it is
his rabid fans have really turned me against him these last few years, and even that would be putting it mildly.
Seeing the condescending and obnoxious behavior of some of his fans has had its impact recently

It's really sad that this happens. I don't think it actually makes you dislike the player, you just have the knowledge that their victory makes obnoxious people happy and it gets spoilt..I would have said I liked Djoko better but over the last couple of years the paranoid subsection of his fanbase has made it really hard to enjoy his wins.
Fed fan here.
I prefer Nadal's gamestyle over Djokovic overall. Novak has some really good shots too, but overall comes off as way too defensive & monotonic for me.
Neither of them are '2nd favorite' for me behind Roger. Just rivals worthy of respect.
When I'm not a Djokovic fan, I'm a Nadal fan. He's the best role model for me. We can't all move like Djokovic or hit like Federer, but we can all strive to work hard and learn to ignore pain like Nadal.
No mystery with me, it's Nadal.
Nadal is my 2nd favorite, when Fed's not playing I always root loudly for the Nadal. After that it's Del Potro, Wawrinka, Isner, Anderson and just about anyone else before Djoker --- but mostly because of his fans.
Epic humble warriorFedr and the Nadal.
As a Fed fan, I voted for Nadal. I guess it's mostly their longer history together and how they sort of established themselves as the two top guys first. Plus I really do like Nadal off the court and started liking him even more after the Laver Cup 2017. How he interacted with Fed was just so cool to see.
Novak is obviously incredible and I do like how he's into "alternative" nutrition and spirituality and all that. But for whatever reason, I've just never connected with his character. Plus I don't like how he can be so blatantly hypocritical sometimes with his smash racquets/throw hearts into the crowd routine.
I had to change my vote because your wording is EXTREMELY confusing!Note: forget about the Slam record, for example that as a Fed fan you’ve supported Djoker in past matches over Nadal only to protect Fed’s record etc. etc. None of that.
I’m asking who do you like better purely as a tennis player....
Isn’t it obvious from the poll options? You choose who is your first favorite and they you vote for whoever you prefer out of the other two.I had to change my vote because your wording is EXTREMELY confusing!
I took it this way at first:
I'm a Djoker fan but I prefer Federer OVER HIM.
But when I saw the vote results I saw something was fishy.
Why more Nadal fans than Fed fans?
I think this is what you mean?
I'm a Federer fan and prefer Djoker OVER Nadal? etc.
I wish I had a laugh emogi. Trust me I am sure all 3 guys have many good fans, probably even a majority of their fans, but all 3 have some massive nutters that nearly rival the Selestial brigade and they tend to be the loudest and most vocal and thus heard the most.
