Re: Your grass court ranking

I'm glad Mario isn't #2.

Why the hell are Ljubicic and Nadal in the top 20???

Re: Your grass court ranking

I don't have the patience to do a top 20, but here's the top 10 guys for me at least:

1. Federer
2. Roddick
3. Hewitt
4. Henman
5. Grosjean
6. Ancic
7. Safin (One tourney does not make me a huge believer in him on grass just yet...)
8. Nalbandian
9. Agassi (at this point in his career, if he were healthy, I'd rank him around here)
10. Karlovic

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Re: Your grass court ranking

Ljubicic has done nothing of merit on the surface...I don't have any recollections of a run at all.

Nadal...he has played only 2 tournaments on grass in his life???

Soderling shouldn't be in there either. Malisse should be top 15 IMO.

Re: Your grass court ranking

my top 5 would look like the following:

1. Federer
2. Roddick
3. Hewitt
4. Grosjean
5. Henman

not so sure how I would continue...

For me, Grosjean deserves to be right behind Federer/Roddick/Hewitt. For me he has done the best demage on grass behind the top 3 guys and had better results than than Henman the last years.

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

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

Re: Your grass court ranking

You are right with Philippoussis.

Mayer - Wimbledon QF
Popp - Wimbledonm QF, F Newport
Ginepri - consistently wins rounds, as does Beck.

What has Safin done on grass to merit being ahead of Grosjean and Henman? Are you basing your rankings off of just this year, or lifetime achievement?

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Something like that. I think that putting him in the top 20 based on his 2-2 record is roughly as absurd as deciding that he must blow on the surface based on his limited results

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.
