Re: Who is your favorite player based on rankings?
11-20: Simon, last year it would have been Monfils or Gulbis, but I have started to prefer Simon's real intelligence over Gulbis' pseudo-intelligence and Monfils' complete lack of it.
21-30: Fognini, despite him getting severely less likable after last year's shenanigans.
41-50: Thiem/Estrella Burgos
71-80: Stepanek/Berlocq, hopefully Radek comes back soon and gets to play Charly, that would be a hilarious match-up.
For the real purists:
101-110: Vanni, I'll be honest and say I had never seen him play before his Sao Paulo run, but he is ridiculously likable.
131-140: Kokkinakis, with Gojowcyzk close behind. Also have a soft spot for lefty choke artist deluxe Bemelmans.
161-170: I awkwardly have to go with Starace.
181-190: Jarry/Ymer/Basilashvili/Russell, stacked section. The former two will make it, while I'm afraid Basilashvili will never completely fulfill his potential. Iron Mike has already achieved legendary status, of course.
191-200: Viola, such a beautiful player. Although he will never reach the top 100, I'm afraid.
Now it's getting really obscure:
211-220: Daniel, such a nice boy he was too nice for the Very Nice Boy Squad.
221-230: Lama, the new Gonzo.
231-240: Veic, hopeless guy unfortunately.
241-250: Ramirez Hidalgo, telling his doubles partner at a Challenger ''Que pasa man? We have match tomorrow'' when he wanted to go out at night. Legend. Also Cachin, future Argentinian #1. Hits the ball ridiculously clean.
I will leave the rest to Somby.

Santaro was a better version of Ferrer
At the end of Federer's first round match at the Australian Open a fawning interviewer asked about his kids and if he had bought coach Stefan Edberg a birthday present - no, by the way, the privilege of knocking up with 'King Roger' was enough of a present apparently.
