2009: Top 10 Disliked Players. Retired Players only

This thread will be open to around 27th December and you are only allowed to include players that are retired

So this means any player who is retired can be voted. If voters want to give reasons, then that's cool, if not, then they don't have to.

Here is how the points will be distributed.

#1 = 10
#2 = 9
#3 = 8
#4 = 7
#5 = 6
#6 = 5
#7= 4
#8= 3
#9 = 2
#10= 1

Voting for the same player 10x will only count as 1 vote. Also at least 5 players should be named or it won't be counted.

If you can't separate certain players. Example if they are 1st both will get 10 points and the next one will get 8 points.

As last year the categories were combined to include all favourites and arseholes, this time I decided to split them into active and non-active players after a few complaints hehe.

Re: 2008: Top 10 Disliked Players. Retired players only

Can we all just pretend that Mark Flip P. has retired?

And what about Alexander Popp?

David Nalbandian /.\ Marcos Baghdatis /.\ Juan Martin Del Potro /.\ Alejandro Falla /.\ Bernard Tomic /.\ Gustavo Kuerton /.\
/.\Roger Federer /.\

Jeff Morrison
Irakli Labadze

Morrison has retired and Labadze is injured.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
