I chose the attitude on court and off court, but for me it's also the ability to stay calm on difficult/hard times.

Aren't all love stories destined to fail?

I like a little craft!

That's why I like.... Ferrero? Shut up.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Which aspect do you like most on a tennis player?

I went with attitude on court and off court, because that defines a person and can make it possible for a player to survive tough moments during matches. If a player is mentally tough, that is, in my opinion, worth much more than, for instance, a good serve.

Re: Which aspect do you like most on a tennis player?

I voted for a great backhand cause I like those great single-handed backhands.... Tommy, Alex, Gaudio,....

But the attittude is also something that I like.

I think a great player needs a combination of all of the above, but in the end I went for attitude too, - the ability to fight and never give in, and to believe in yourself is the most important thing I think.

Heart-pure heart. A player who will give it his or her all, and will go down swinging, is one I admire the most.....

Heart is important.

But, I like different players for different reasons.

Xa-Xa has almost no fighting heart at all, but I still like him.

Re: Which aspect do you like most on a tennis player?

Well I guess the personality fits under attitude , so that has my vote. I appreciate the craftiness too, though.

Re: Which aspect do you like most on a tennis player?

I pick the attitude on and off court. Can't believe it's the most popular one right now with 50% of the votes.

Re: Which aspect do you like most on a tennis player?

I also see attitude as personality, so I voted for this. I respect all gifted tennis players, but the personality is what makes a player really special for me.

Re: Which aspect do you like most on a tennis player?

Everything, I like a player with a lot of variety in their game as well as an attitude on court like Borg.

Re: Which aspect do you like most on a tennis player?

I voted energy but I would also say mental fortitude and patriotism rate highly (and not just for Australians either!). Not the heart on sleeve ra ra kind of patriotism, but practical things like consistently playing Davis Cup and producing their best tennis in it, and helping youngsters. This is why Todd Martin is my favourite American, for example.
