4. Fish - I'm american. I can't really ever find myself rooting against him unless he's playing Ferrer
5. Roddick - Even against Ferrer I find myself backing Roddick... probably cuz I'm american. but he's also an asshole pretty often
6. Nadal - He is fun to watch, always a good sport, and very modest about himself. He somehow makes even the greatest slaughters exciting.
7. Del Potro - I'd love to see him win another slam. Great comeback story
8. Isner - 6:4 3:6 6:7 7:6 70:68
9. Nalbandian - Wish he'd won that Wimbledon... sucks that he's been plagued by injuries... 8 wins against Federer
10. Djokovic - I loved him when he was #3. I always wanted him to break through. But I did not want him to win EVERYTHING. That's kind of annoying.
Nice to see that you included reasons for your decisions

Re: 2012 MTF Top 10 Favourite Active Players (2nd update in #120)

Here's my reasons:

1) Raonic: same temperament as me; the nerdy, mathematical kid w/ an intense secret weapon. i like that.

2) Gulbis: coolest and most genuine guy i've seen on tour; tomic and dolgo only wish they could be as effortlessly cool ..

3) Roddick: an unapologetic American; upfront, puts reporters in their place; an easy target for scapegoat seekers

4) Federer: just classic; one-of-a-kind, legend, never will be another

5) Soderling: power game that's missing at the top; easily ignored by glory hunters but deserves a lot more respect than he's been given

6) Melzer: underrated; never expects more than earned; cool with playing qualies and having only a few twitter followers even though he's top 20 material

7) Ferrer: discipline personified; example of pure will & integrity overcoming the odds

8) Harrison: hard-working and extremely competitive; yet a lot more respectful of his peers, opponents, and the game than most others

9) Petzschner: artist w/ great hands and a beautiful game and personality.. errors and all

10) Tipsarevic: philosophical truth-seeker; excellent speaker and mind, even though he overrates nietzsche and dostoyevsky

Re: 2012 MTF Top 10 Favourite Active Players (2nd update in #120)

Really tough to say, I'm quite indifferent generally speaking... watching a match I usually favor one guy over the other, but it happens during a match, not before it.

1 - Tsonga
2 - Llodra
3 - Verdasco
4 - Gulbis
5 - Kubot
6 - Isner
7 - Anderson
8 - Fish
9 - Melzer
10 - Raonic

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces
