Smile 2012 MTF Top 10 Favourite Retired Players (Marat wins 3rd consecutive time)

I hope Action Jackson won't mind it if I'm going to run this poll this year again.

You have to name at least 5 players or votes won’t count.

It would be much appreciated if you would include reasons for your decisions but it’s not a requirement

Of course you can only vote once for the same player.

Please make sure before you are going to vote if you have already mentioned your players before.

It's easy to check if you have already posted in a thread. Just click on "search this thread", advanced search and write down your name under "search by user name".

Here is how the points will be distributed:

#1 = 10
#2 = 9
#3 = 8
#4 = 7
#5 = 6
#6 = 5
#7= 4
#8= 3
#9 = 2
#10= 1

Hopefully many people will participate



The Top 10 of the previous years were:

Re: 2012 MTF Top 10 Favourite Retired Players

It will be the same list as last two years, with the newly retired Clement on top of course.

Everyone but the ball boys will miss him.

Clement is not retired! He said himself it's false, he will continue.

Re: 2012 MTF Top 10 Favourite Retired Players

It's more or less the same as usual, and more tactical voting than really preferring some to the others...

1. Agassi
2. Stich
3. Rafter
4. Escudé
5. Edberg
6. Srichaphan
7. Grosjean
8. Kuerten
9. Costa, Albert
10. Safin



Roger Federer ♦ David Goffin ♦ Mikhail Youzhny ♦ Dustin Brown ♦ Pierre-Hugues Herbert
