Who do you dread your favourite player coming up against?

I'm pretty new here so please excuse my ignorance if this topic has already been done.

I was just wondering who everyone hates their favourite player having to play against (i.e. who are you scared that your favourite player will lose to?).

Being a Lleyton supporter, the blokes I fear will beat Lleyton most are Moya and Ferrero. I think their games just happen to match up considerably well against Hewitt.

Also feel jittery when he has to play guys who can do anything on any given day like Fernando Gonzalez, Nicolas Escude and Younes El Aynaoui.

Re: Who do you dread your favourite player coming up against?

I hate when Andy plays other players I like because then I'm torn about who to root for.

Obviously I want him to win all the time, so there are some players who I'd rather see in the other side of the draw, but if that's the way it happens then I'm OK with it because Andy can't overcome a bad head-to-head against someone he has trouble with unless he plays them and wins

Good thread idea.

For Agassi I fear:

historically: Sampras, Rios, Kucera

now: Federer (after that Masters Cup Final), Ferrero, Hewitt

For Tommy, I fear Roger Federer and Andy Roddick... Can't beat them

For Alex, at the moment any player

Alex Bogomolov vs. Nicolas Kiefer. They've met twice already and it's absolute torture for me. The last time they met was in Tokyo where Nicolas won, 7-5 7-6(7). But the score isn't burned into my memory or anything .

I remember having to watch that match on the Tokyo scoreboard and constantly refreshing. It was hell!!

PAW 2013:
Munich - 2nd place
Halle - 4th place
's-Hertogenbosch - 4th place
GSTAAD - WINNER

That pretty much sums up what I think of this matter!

Re: Who do you dread your favourite player coming up against?

I think future Roddick/Ferrero matches are likely to be rather closer than the USO final was. Can't wait for a match up on clay ;-)

For Agassi, probably Ferrero, Federer and Enqvist. Rios has given him trouble in the past, but I dont fear him as hes not even half the player he used to be anymore.

For Hrbaty, any top 20 player at the moment

Re: Who do you dread your favourite player coming up against?

When Roger is playing against Hewitt and Nalbandian, I feel rather nervous and a little scared, but nerver to say DREAD... I'm always looking forward to watch Roger playing against the two guys, eager to find myself what on earth their games should trouble Roger so much...Even if it just happens to be another loss, still I don't dread but pressing to see their next meeting...
