Who is the best player in the World today?

The answer for me is easy and its Roger Federer. Although he has only a 1-1 record against Nadal and a 1-0 record against Murray (he hasn't played Djokovic this year), hes won 4 titles and he has 2 AMS titles.

He's been pretty much unbeatable aside from two matches this year against Rafa in Melbourne where he inexplicably broke down after the firework delay and in DC where he lost to Isner. The Roddick match obviously counts but it was a jaded Federer

I think its between Fed and Nole as with the level Nadal shown being sub par.

Re: Who is the best player in the World today?

Let's see...
In clay Nadal
In fast hardcourt Federer
In Ice/blue clay, Federer
In slow hardcourt Djokovic
In dreams, Murray
In grass let's wait until next month...

So, considering that, the obvious answer is Berlocq.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.


First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.
(Actually 2nd)

It's Djokovic, and it's not even close.

Inexplicable? No it's not. It's so easy to see Federer just can't elevate his level as much as Rafole. They are unstoppable at slams, and I'm sorry, but Federer can rule all he want, when the money is on the line, he gets dealt with by the actual best two players in the world

Verdasco.

But seriously, Federer. He's won four titles, including two Masters. He's defeated Nadal, defeated Murray, made SF at Aus Open, had a 15-match winning streak, and of course won 45 of his last 48 matches. No brainer IMO.
