Apologies if I have left out big names, but I was almost suicidal by the time I reached the letter G.

I guess Roddick must be the greatest player to ever play the game.

The group B. It's a team competition.

Re: By letter...(yes I am bored).

Best Serve : R (Roddick and Rusedski is hard to beat, although L came close)
Best Forehand : F (Federer, Ferrer, Ferrero all great forehands)
Best Backhand : G (Gaudio and Gasquet's single handers are a joy to watch)
Best On Clay : G (All the ones you've mentioned are good clay courters, apart from the 2 in brackets )
Best On Grass : A (Agassi, Ancic and Andreev have all done well on grass)
Most Talent : M (Mathieu, Moya, Malisse etc are all slight headcases but they're all hugely talented)
Favourites : N (Rafa )
Least Favourite : F (Fish, Ferrer and Ferrero - you can thank Federer for you being in my least favourite )
Best Looking : S (Oh why not, the Brad Pitt of tennis is in there)

R has Rochus which lets them down. A is a good call but in my opinion...

Blake, Baghdatis, Berdych, Bracciali are all amazing servers.

Nah they're all good servers, I wouldn't put any of them amongst the top 5 in the world. Whereas Roddick and Rusedski are both in there.

If you put Lisnard with the L's, they'd be guaranteed to get most talented....

Rusedski used to be in there. Not in the top 10 now though.
