Who is the toughest ATP Player: Who'd win a no-holds-barred fight - Discuss!

I'll try to insert a poll here. I am not the most knowledgeable but hopefully i wont forget any fighters here. On the womens side Serena won, but Lindsay was second. IMO opinion Lindsay would Kick some ass.
On the mens side I am not so sure. I suppose Id give the edge to Mark Philippoussis mostly based on his size and strength. I bet that Roddick can defend himself pretty good too. And I like Paradorn...he's got a strong build and certainly has the mental toughness. also I like Younes El Aynaoui. He played like a 40 game 5th set against Roddick one time so this guy is a fighter. What do you think?

I wouldn't want to get into a fight with Roddick- if the way he plays on the court is any indication, backed with his size and build I think he'd be like a raging bull seeing red.

Also Lleyton I feel is someone who has to get the last word in. Unless he is crippled in a fight no matter how big or strong you were he'd probably try biting your ear off or something of the sort- real terrier.

Also Rainer Schuttler trains with a martial-arts expert so I wouldn't want to get on his bad side either.

Re: Who is the toughest ATP Player: Who'd win a no-holds-barred fight - Discuss!

true that - betcha Rainer is a fighter. IMO, the temperment makes a difference. unfortunately i dont have cable, so my experience is just based on a bit of tv, and going to RG - Younes looks very tough!

Marat Safin too- he's big and strong and crazy enough to do just about anything.

I think it would be Para because of his thai boxing abilities.
I don't know if the others from the list master a martial art.

Left-handedness is more than just a physical specialization. It's a state of mind.

i think Juan Carlos Ferrero would be the worst person to get into a fist fight with, lolz. Because i would be too busy staring at him to fight back.

Re: Who is the toughest ATP Player: Who'd win a no-holds-barred fight - Discuss!

Andy and Mark would cry, Younes would walk away from a confrontation, Marat would spend a lot of time trying to decide whether to fight or not and then would decide to watch TV instead. I would go with Ljubicic & Goran. The've lived in a war-torn country and they would be able to fight.

I agree on some parts. I think Andy will definitely be the crybaby

Younes might just fight you know. I know the temper that Moroccans can have.

Mark Poo Poo Dud Scud~... if you dare insult his precious girlfriend Delta Goodrem then you're a "dead man"! Atleast that's what he told Pat Cash back in January>_<.

Marat Safin~... the frustration of wasted talent may make him a Time^Bomb ticking!

Marcelo Rios~... same reasons above but obviously he doesn't have the physicality; he would be more likely to knife you when you're not looking!

Younes~... he's so smart, before you know it he would have crushed you where it hurts>_<.

Rocky Hewitt~... if you say a bad word about AUS then his patriotism comes to the fore & he'll fight like there's no tomorrow{remember Rocky III & Gladiator are his favourite movies}!

Hicham Arazi~... another Moroccan who'll give more than he gets!

Greg Rusedski~... Madman Walking!

I could imagine Hewitt before a fight, he would be like big yells of "Come on".

I know a former player who would do well in the fight stakes the name of Thomas Muster.

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".
