Re: Are the Spanish the most dull players to watch?

Umm.. no. I like Verdasco's forehand. He can be very exciting to watch when he's "on". And I like Feli Lopez on grass. Nadal and Ferrer though.. yes.

DELPO

Also supporting known chokers Verdasco, Lopez and Monaco

Re: Are the Spanish the most dull players to watch?

I like watching Spaniards in general, but of course watching Dull is painful.

The guy is dull as dirt. The person and his game.

Game over. Forever.

He more resembles a Greek statue, and Almagro in my opinion has a sort of middle eastern look to him. Since they're probably the most fun Spaniards, it figures .

Tennis is life...

It's been said before, but the Americans are the boring ones.

Nadal • Federer • Dimitrov • Wawrinka


Ferrer • Murray • del Potro • Tsonga • Raonic • Haas • Kohlschreiber • Verdasco • Monfils

He himself looks like quite a patriot.

Feliciano López is the man

I like Feliciano Lopez

Gulbis said it best: “Nothing worked today. I was just running like a Spanish clay-court player standing on the baseline and pushing the ball back."
Better to be a boring Winner than a flashy Loser! To call Nadal boring is narrow minded, at best.

Re: Are the Spanish the most dull players to watch?

Verdasco alone defeats the concept that Spanish players are boring

he is extremely interesting and unpredictable from personality, mood, game

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Rafael Nadal
