Name antics you like from the top 10 players

I thought the other thread about the antics we dislike from the top 10 players was pretty cool but I also thought it would be nice to make the same list with things we actualy like from these players, even if some of them you hate, there has to be something you like.

Here's mine.

1. Federer - GOAT, very pleasing style of tennis to watch, doesn't grunt when he hits the ball, never quits, is allways a good sport, acts the way someone in his possition should act.

2. Nadal - GOAT on clay, fights till the end no matter what, once the game is over and he loses he takes his beating like a man and doesnt make excuses.

3. Djokovic - absolutely nothing possitive.

4. Davydenko - His face is funny and he is allways underrated but in my opinion should be the #3 if he played the way he really can allways.

5. Ferrer - one of those guys that can beat the best if he plays well

6. Roddick - for a man who has been bitchslaped by Roger so often and been ridiculed by the media constantly because of it, specialy in press conferences, he takes it well and jokes about it, at press conferences andy is probably the best out there

7. Nalbandian - I like the fact that he is fat, its just funny.

8. Blake - comes off as a really nice guy, just get rid of the J BLOCK or whatever

9. Gasquet - don't know enough about him to like anything.

10. Wawrinka - looks like an average dude walking down the street, I like that

Nothing.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Re: Name antics you like from the top 10 players

They are all inherently good people, who mean well, although it doesn't always turn out that way in a competitive environment. And they all want peace and prosperity on earth. And yeah...'who gives a shit'.
The tennis has been great so far at RG, I only miss Henin... the women's title won't feel the same without her, until the memories of the fans and players of her game fade a little. I still think of her in the present tense, tennis-wise

As for the question: see my contribution to the 'most annoying antics'-thread. Hate to reveal it, but those might well be things I rather like about the top 10-players as well...

"It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, older, it's getting colder...

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

Don't get me wrong, I am by no means a Djok fan, but one thing he does I do like, is he gives his opponents credit for great shots with applause or some acknowledgment. I do like that.

YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS

You're what? 10? That's awfully naive.

Those gestures of him are ironic as hell.
