top 10 most boring active players to watch?

Same as the other thread, but your most boring to watch players. It may not even be players you dislike, I hope it's not too similar to the most least liked players thread. Here are mine, that unless they were playing a favourite of mine, I'd probably switch off.

1. Robredo
2. Massu
3. Volandri
4. J Johansson
5. Zabaleta
6. Stepanek
7. Gaudio
8. Davydenko
9. Fish
10. Carlsen

I am BUOH, warrior of heart and soul.

We should create, if it's not been already created, THE CLAY GANG

My picks are:

1 - Roddick
2 - Mirnyi
3 - Karlovic
4 - Rusedski
5 - Davydenko
6 - Hewitt ( I just don't like him, so he's boring to me)

I think of anybody else now, I'll post the rest later

Re: top 10 most boring active players to watch?

Coria features in top 3 for me...his game is boring and his attitude is boring and predictable i.e. he always is a bad loser and constantly moans.

Can't say I particularly like watching Lopez, Volandri, Karlovic...the only names coming to me right now.

Re: top 10 most boring active players to watch?

IMO Karlovic is not boring, as he offers something different to the rest, I mean the other big servers can be S & V and also returners (Ljubicic), but this guy is just unique.

Yeah he is unique but the points are just a little too quick for me. I like watching serve volleyers, but generally when they are actually given a volley to hit

At Nottingham, he was interesting to watch against Rochus, because Ollie added spice to that match with his talent from the back of the court, but otherwise, Karlovic is only fun in very small doses

Even in small doses I have nothing against the man, it's just I only saw him in Queens or in Madrid on tv, and for me, it's boring to watch.
