MTF Top 100 Fan Favourites of all time

Since CooCooCachoo had such a great idea, the points system will be the same, but the only difference is that this can include players that have retired.

The points system is like the other post. The #1 in a list receives 10 pts, the #10 1 point.This ranking will be a top 100!

Here is the my top 10 favourites of all time, and it could be showing peoples varying ages on this board.

1. Mats Wilander
2. Miloslav Mecir
3. Björn Borg
4. Kent Carlsson
5. Alex Corretja
6. Thomas Muster
7. Magnus Gustafsson
8. Marc Rosset
9. Alberto Mancini
10. Felix Mantilla

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Re: Top 100 Fan's Favourites of all time

My top ten

Gaudio
Marcelo Rios
Kucera
Ivan Lendl (childhood memories, my father would say, he is the best tennis player in the world when I was a little kid)
Wayne Ferreira
Medvedev
Muster
Gumy (remember his match against Corretja?)
Mantilla
Nalbandian

I also liked Courier, Korda + all the guys in my signature.

Ill be 20 in a couple of months, I started to follow men tennis in 1997 (I was 13 years old, and I started to follow tennis seriously when Marcelo Rios reached the number one spot in 1998)

Mancini, Jaite, Perez Roldan are also Childhood memories.

george
Why dont you post your list of your favourite ten active players in the other thread?

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

Re: Top 100 Fan's Favourites of all time

Can I include players that I haven't seen play before, but have read up on them and like them cuz I know about them?

Like father, like son

"For seven and a half years I've worked alongside President Reagan. We've had triumphs. Made some mistakes. We've had some sex...uh...setbacks."
George H.W. Bush, 1988

"I know how hard it is for you to put food on your family."
George W. Bush, 2000

2.) Agassi
3.) Henman
4.) Kafelnikov
5.) Federer
6.) Connors
7.) Nalbandian
8.) Hewitt
9.) Chang
10.) Pavel

ARGH! There's so many other faves!

So close: Roddick, Coria, Lendl, Moya, and Stich .
