top 10 most entertaining active players?

Your top 10 please! It can be players you dislike. I hope it's not too similar to the favourite players, but these are IMO the most entertaining to watch.

1 Gonzalez
2 Monfils
3 Santoro
4 Henman
5 Verdasco
6 Federer
7 Safin
8 Arazi (hasn't retired yet so he can count)
9 Murray
10 Nalbandian

I am BUOH, warrior of heart and soul.

Mathieu should be in there, never a dull moment when he's around

Re: top 10 most entertaining active players?

my top:
1. Marcos Baghdatis
2. Fernando Verdasco
3. Marat Safin
4. Gael Monfils
5. Fernando Gonzalez
6. Novak Djokovic
7. Younes El Aynaoui
8. Rafael Nadal
9. Alex Waske (only live scares the sh*t outta u )
10. Roger Federer (he is entertaining but seeing him winning everything isn't )

I suck at TT so there's no reason to brag with my 1st round exits :retard:
And I adore Radiohead

Re: top 10 most entertaining active players?

Andre Agassi should be in there. The crowds love him. Fabrice Santoro and Nadal are also special for me.

Re: top 10 most entertaining active players?

oh i will write about the ones i have seen live

Monfils (everything... game and the spirit)
Coria ( m a g i c )
El Aynaoui (beautiful fairplay and reactions)
Safin (it's quite entertaining when he wants to lose so much in a small ATP tourney)
Korolev (p o w e r - i haven't seen it even on Nadal's matches )
Gabashvili (the personality... but better sit somewhere safe in the crowd when he starts to go nuts)
Calleri (maestry... when he's in shape)
Acasuso (you never know, what happens next!)
Ryderstedt (just the general impression and the irony )

and I should mention David Nalbandian because I adore his game, but the match of his I have seen live, was terrible. Still, he deserves to be placed here.

I will burn
And you will die...

Re: top 10 most entertaining active players?

Santoro

and then, in no particular order

Safin (because you never know what you'll get)
Federer (because you always know what you'll get)
The Bryan Brothers (because they're an exciting doubles pair)
Hewitt (I love his game and all the emotion...good, bad and ugly)
Henman and Dent (because they're the last of the s/v-ers)
Baghdatis (because that smile can light up an entire stadium)

I love my girls.

Re: top 10 most entertaining active players?

Being a clay lover my choices are pretty obvious, but:

1 - Gaudio
2 - Puerta
3 - Nadal (it amazes and entertain me the incredible balls he hits and FYI I'm not his fan)
4 - Safin
5 - Blake
6 - Nalbandian
7 - Moya
8 - Guga (he's playing very little, he surely should be higher but )
9 - Ferrer
10 - Cañas

Some of these guys have particularly entertained me this year (Nadal, Blake and Ferrer), the rest are just entertainers IMHO.

Re: top 10 most entertaining active players?

Gotta change my #10 pick coz I've just realised he's not "active" right now... Denial???

My #10 would be then Henman

Re: top 10 most entertaining active players?

No order :

- Fernando Gonzalez
- Marat Safin (I'm not one of his biggest fans but I admit that it's always interesting to see him play, things can happen)
- Roger Federer (I'm not a fan but he's great to watch, tennis is easy)
- Carlos Moya (the most interesting spanish player to watch)
- Rafael Nadal (this year on clay, yes, he was entertaining)
- Andre Agassi (respect)
- James Blake
- Tim Henman
- Jonas Björkman/Max Myrnii
- Guga (in Roland-Garros)

Fernando Gonzalez & Carlos Moya

Para siempre Gonzo

Still supporting you, vamos

Perfectly said AQ!
