Re: favourite player

This was a tough question. My nominees were Kuerten because I love his style, character and his dramatic burst into the tennis hall of fame with the RG97 win. Rafter because of his beautiful serve and volley game and such a great competitor. Edberg for the same reasons and before and for sentimental reasons. He was my fav player in the late eighties, early nineties, so stylish and cool on the court.
I´m going for Kuerten though because when he plays well, especially on clay, it´s entertaining, thrilling and majestic. God, I love that man!

Re: favourite player

I voted for Carlos too. But, I agree, Goran is definitely one of my favorites ever.

Can't stand his odd grunt though, very annoying, sounds a bit euphoric.

Re: favourite player

Oh I love Kuerten´s grunt!!!!!!!!!!!! I like grunting in general, i think the players are getting off on the drama and playing up to the crowds. Or maybe they cant help it. I don´t know.
Out of curiousity, how come Kuerten isnt on this poll? Doesn´t really matter cos you can vote for other but just wondering how he couldn´t be a main contender with all his credentials.
