Which player do you prefer? Del Potro or Murray?

They've had an intersting rivalry since juniors.
Both seem to have their fair share of haters and supporters on MTF.

So which player do you prefer overall, in terms of tennis style, personality etc?

Re: Which player do you prefer? Del Potro or Murray?

Del Potro is like the Safina of the ATP for me. Wholly uninteresting, with a game and an image that no matter how much I try and tolerate/enjoy, I find myself struggling to sit through a match of theirs. I would rather Murray was playing anyone else in the final today

And I'm sure there are other people who prefer watching Del Potro and find his game much more interesting and exciting and have a hard time sitting through any of Murray's matches

Re: Which player do you prefer? Del Potro or Murray?

Oh it's like to ask what do you like more: art or boredom. Should I concretize that I like Murray more?
Funny to admit that in the future in this terms this couple can be kinda Federer-Nadal copy. Where one is a stylish all-arounder and the other is just a powerful worker.

Re: Which player do you prefer? Del Potro or Murray?

If he stopped trying to go for winners and started yelling "COME ON!" after every point, would you be a fan?

Football is one of the few areas of life where even if you're untutored, you can go to a ground and see George Best beat three men, and you can realise, 'I have seen genius.'

Re: Which player do you prefer? Del Potro or Murray?

Del Potro. I find his stroke production pleasant to watch, he moves very well for a guy of his height, he's attractive, he's almost always gracious and fair to his opponents, yet has bold ambitions and a strong desire to succeed. I also like the fact that he's not afraid to utilize his tear ducts; you know, those things everyone has.

Filippo VOLANDRI, Pablo ANDUJAR, Yuki BHAMBRI, Fabio FOGNINI, Thomaz BELLUCCI,
Santiago GIRALDO, Donald YOUNG, Gael MONFILS, Juan Martin DEL POTRO, Alexandr DOLGOPOLOV

I prefer Muzza but I actually don't mind Del-pony. There are very few players I dislike on the tour.
