Is Davydenko the most likable player in the top 5?

I think he is. Having read his blog, he really comes off as charming, kind, and funny. On court he is never disrespectful to the umpire or to fans. He also has an amazing work ethic and great ground strokes. He has a great personality + great game plus he never consistently beats top players meaning fans of those players can't really hate him either. Many people call him boring simply because he is not rude and disrespectful on court. Personally I think he is really likable and I can't see why anyone would dislike him, his blogs are really interesting and hilarious. The only reason I think people really dislike is because of the fixing scandal. I'm wondering if you guys think he is the most likable player in the top 5 if we put the fixing scandal aside.

Re: Is Davydenko the most likable player in the top 5?

I knew it would get that kind of reaction but think about it. No one in the top 3 can be the most likable as fans of the other top 3 players tend to hate that player and no one really likes Ferrer although it can be argued that he's more likable than Davydenko, but I think he's not so therefor Davydenko equals most likable if people were able to get over his fixing scandal.

No. Ljuba Truba is.

Naaah, Roger and Rafa are way more likable IMO.

Couldn't agree more, he comes across quiet and uninteresting at times, but his press conferences and blogs are funny and you can really see more of his personality.

Now his hand is on your shoulder
