Re: Best Player

Federer is the best when he play to his potential. Safin is probably a close second.

Re: Best Player

In the order that Mister Q put them in: Federer, Safin, Agassi.

Re: Best Player

hmm very hard to say since I don't think we've even seen the full potential (or heck, come close to seeing) of pretty much all of them (except perhaps Agassi by the sheer length of his career and the fact that he's probably past his peak)

Re: Best Player

I don't like this "playing to potential" or "playing to talent."

Maybe Santoro has the most talent of anyone, but he's never going to be a top player because talent unfortunately is only a portion of the equation.

Potential.......... that is purely subjective and speculative.

The really important thing in competion that determines who is best is this: The person who wins the most. That's it pure and simple. And now we have a whole glorious year in front of us to see who that is going to be.

Being able to play to the full extent of your talent is part of the talent if you get what I mean. Talent has to be solid in both the physical play and the mental.

federer for obvious reasons... safin for his explosiveness... and agassi for being able to secure a break because of his awesome returns.

(i figured i should give reasons since im repeating someone else's list )

If we're talking the complete physical and mental package.... Andre.
