Rafter!
Henman!

All the serve volleyers come to mind. (especially those two)

Paul Henri Mathieu & Lleyton Hewitt

Safin, Federer and to be honest, Ferrer. His game isn't pretty or flashy, but I love to watch him and he's never lost when I've seen him live.

i think prime federer for me is the most exciting/funnest of all time.

agassis baseline game was great to watch as well.

Safin was too incosistent, but when he was on, it was great to watch

Simply, players who don't wait 25-30 seconds to serve.
