Mardy Fish IMO

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."

Re: Who is the BEST claycourt tennis player today???

Coria is he best nowadays, Gaudio is my favourite cuz i love his play style and geniousis and Safin is the best ranked and he's playing great tennis so i'm guessing he could be doing great things in clay cuz he's not that stranger to the surface...

Re: Who is the BEST claycourt tennis player today???

going by holding current biggest title ---> Gaudio

going by the factors: overall impressiveness on clay throughout almost his whole career, clay winning streak, titles on clay etc.... ---> Coria

Guga and Ferrero don't qualify anymore... neither do Costa, Corretja, Moya etc when asking for the BEST claycourter

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

1) Coria 2) Moya 3) Gaudio. But all of them may be defeated by Federer or Safin. Hewitt and Roddick have no chance against them on clay.

Re: Who is the BEST claycourt tennis player today???

I agree with Neely.. it's Coria or Gaudio, and it depends on how you want to look at it.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Robredo.

Despite winning Barcelona, if he played Fish or Roddick on clay... you know he'd lose.

So:

1. Ginepri
2. Fish
3. Roddick.

Re: Who is the BEST claycourt tennis player today???

Ahh yes we cant forget the clay clown andy, any list wouldnt be complete without him.
But seriously i think its either gaudio or coria, its hard to call coria the best when he hasnt a won a slam but then again his claycourt record deserves a special award. It will be interesting to see how gaudio backups his french open win.

Re: Who is the BEST claycourt tennis player today???

What the hell......... The question was who is the best clay player Today, eight of February of 2005, not who was the best clay player in the last year or 25 years ago. The best clay player today IS Gaston Gaudio, besides that, he has been since june of last year and will continue to be at least until next Sunday. Coria didn't play a clay tournament in the last six months, so the answer is obviously Gaudio, this is a fact, shouldn't be discussed
