I got banned. For nothing. When fedtards were unbearable. On the day Rafa withdrew from Olympics. I decided not to read GM at all and haven't done that for several months. I am sure that is what all other Rafa's fans do now.

Do you really think the atmosphere on GM is different for fans from other players?

There are tards from all fanbases on the forum who make it unbearable to read certain posts and threads.

But this is not the thread to discuss this

Re: 2012 MTF Top 10 Favourite Active Players (9th update in #514)

I have a technical question.

If our votes are going to be tallied up and represented on a year-end list, are we allowed to include players who retired earlier in the year?

I know they're no longer "active", but they are a part of this year's poll, so I'm not totally sure what the verdict is.

Thanks.

All currently retired players have had their votes transferred to the "Favourite retired players"-thread. Especially for Roddick this proved beneficial, the points that gave him a distant 11th place here were enough to fight for 1st in the (less popular) retired favourites thread.

In short, votes for retired players will not count in this thread.

Ohh, okay, thanks. I didn't realize that votes were transferred along with the player. I thought they would still be counted toward the "Favorite Active" thread.

In that case...



1. Andy Murray: I've been a big fan since '09. I didn't immediately take to his style of tennis, but it grew on me. He's a fascinating player to watch live. His story made me more personally supportive.

2. Tomas Berdych: His game, when on, is spectacular to watch. I love that he can seemingly generate firepower at will. I also respect the fact that he doesn't seem to care what people think of him.

3. Jack Sock: He's one of few youths I'm genuinely excited about. It's great to see him with weapons at such a young age. I believe he'll be a real force as he matures.

4. Richard Gasquet: A sentimental thing, mostly. I've always admired his game, aesthetically, and I'm not one to jump ship in the face of disappointing results. Also, I met him and he seems like a nice guy.

5. Juan-Martin Del Potro: Though he is quite a talented guy, he's actually at #5 because of his character. After the way he handled Roddick's retirement, he has my utmost respect.

6. Lleyton Hewitt: As a Roddick fan, I've always been a *distant* fan of Lleyton's. His fighting spirit and his mental fortitude make it hard not to like him. He's overcome such great adversity.

7. David Nalbandian: Such an incredible ball-striker. There are probably numerous reasons not to like him, but every time his baseline game is clicking I forget all of that.

8. John Isner: My girlfriend and I saw him in Singles and Dubs at Indian Wells and he was one of the more exciting players there... No surprise he went on to make the finals. He's a classy fellow as well.

9. Kei Nishikori: He's a really talented player, and it seems like he's finally taking on the game in a way that suits his stature. There's a certain pop to his game that I really enjoy.

Things could undoubtedly have been done that way too, but OP preferred to do it like I said.

Great geographical spread on your favourite list, by the way

Re: 2012 MTF Top 10 Favourite Active Players (9th update in #514)

Update of my post from 2 years back, now my top 10 is like this with active players:
1. Hewitt (will always be my #1 ever, eventhough he is not anywhere succesful anymore.... ;(
2. Murray (tie up with Djoko...I like Murray's game the most and I like Djoko his personality the most)
3. Djokovic
4. Nalbandian (same with Hewitt, basically, will always be up there as long as he's active)
5. Monfils (where is this guy, goddamn)
6. Davydenko (damn it, my entire top 10 consists of people that are basically finished or retired)
7. Federerl (I would vote for them higher up, but he is just too succesful to do so...
8. Nadal (same as above)
9. Del Potro
10. Tsonga

with honorable mention for Mathieu, but good lord, I couldn't have let my entire top 10 consist of underranked players

Like Litotes already said I requested that every player who retired gets voted in the retired players thread and all his points from the active players thread are transferred into the retired players thread.

Unfortunately not that many people are voting for their favorite retired players so it's surely a bit of an advantage for a player as Roddick or Gonzalez that their points from the active players thread are going over into the retired players thread (which is less active as the active players thread) but I stated that nobody who has already voted for a player in the active players thread can vote for him in the other thread.

In the past we just had general favorite players threads in which you could name your favorite players, no matter if they were active or retired but I think it's nice to have those lists separated.

I could never decide for a combined top 10 list from my favorite active and retired players.

Maybe a majority of users would like to have a thread like that though.

It could be an idea for 2013.
