    Raonic, Carreno-Busta and Goffin.

    But I'll give this one to Carreno-Boring.

    STOP SAYING HE BANGED HER! :mad: That's just bullsh*t Nick said in a disgusting act of gamesmanship :rolleyes: They dated years ago when they were in juniors and Stan wasn't even in the picture, no need to bash them for that.

    Apart from the obvious suspects Ill go with Granollers. It's a good thing he sucks so I can laugh at him all I want.

    He seems like a dick too. At a challenger event a few years ago here in Dallas he was berating ball kids, complaining and moaning about the crowd being noisy, mumbling after every single point he lost. Was great to see Frances Tiafoe kick his butt 3 and 3 during that match.

    It's not the concept or the definition I have a problem with, but the context in which it was said: as part of a idiosyncrasy in which men should be looked down for being with a woman who has had sex with someone else in the past, as if that made her a lesser human or something. That's a high school doucheb*g mentality.

    Don't worry, @Mainad is a kind-hearted poster, he follows the Mury after all. Now I will find you and force you to watch the Murrovic USO final of 2012 for all eternity

    Isner wouldn't be near the top 150 with Ferrer's serve. Just look at his breaking% and then look at Ferrers hold% and keep in mind that his hold% is gonna be way lower than Ferrer's because he's useless off the ground.

    The thing with Bedene, is that the BBC and the British press don't really have a choice in reporting about him.

    They can't make a judgement call on who is and isn't British.

    The ''not really British'' mantra also harks back to long-gone racist and xenophobic times, so it's not really a subject which most people like to dwell upon too much. Even so it seems justified in Bedene's case, as he is only ''British'' for convenience purposes.

    Tough to put a single name to this.

    I'd have to hate the player's:

    Game style
    +
    Strokes
    +
    On-court demeanor
    +
    Off-court personality

    ...which should all add up to completely tuning out all his matches.

    None of these guys ticks all these boxes, really -

    Janowicz
    Granollers
    Harrison
    Raonic
    Fognini
    Groth
    Mannarino
    Coric
    Vesely
    Paire
    Tomic
    Kozlov
    Belucci

    Funny how instead it makes for compelling viewing as there's always that 'hero vs villain' storyline going on

    Yeah, I know...so much hate :D

    Bernie. I try to get behind players from my own country but seriously, Tomic makes it so hard to actually want to root for him.

    Kyrgios is starting to get on me nerves too.

    If only these two nuff-nuffs had half the 'fighting' spirit and determination of their DC captain.

    I don't dislike him, and I know that there's a general love-in about him on this forum, but Stan Wawrinka always comes across as surly, unpersonable and not exactly a ''good sport''.

    Outside his tennis, he doesn't appear to have any personality traits which would attract someone to support him.

    Berdych. An arrogant tool, with very few results.
    And of course Tomic.

    To all Federer fans: come on. Time to confess who is your least favorite active player!
    There's only a month left before he clinches his fourth year end #1 ranking.
    Then, you can jump to his bandwagon without guilt.

    Never been able to stand Nicolas - plays the 'villain' role perfectly, but do love the guy's effortless power and single-hander

    I must have softened up ever since he got injured and cried so openly though

    Serena - an obnoxious bully and drama queen.

    Granollers - When I watch him play I find myself hoping to God someone young and impressionable is not doing likewise.

    I like your thread idea and hating Bedene fine, but it doesn't help the British Davis Cup team one bit to have lesser "real" British players out there getting demolished. You'd be singing another tune if he made the team and got them over the hump again.:rolleyes:

    It just says a lot about the mentality of the guy and why Bendych has been a loser his entire career. 13-18 in finals and never beaten a big time player in any of those. I love to watch Bendych go down in tight sets and matches like clockwork.:p But even with that love, still my least favourite player on tour since Roddick left.:D
