Cool MTF 2017 Favourite Players Thread (second update in post 53)

Welcome to 2017's MTF Favourite Players Thread

I don't think Eden is around anymore so someone has to keep this running

Voting for Active and Retired players is separate once again, and is not joined together in one vote like last year

Vote for your 10 favourite active male tennis players and your 3 favourite retired male tennis players.

For your vote to count, you must name a minimum of 5 players in your active players vote
The favourite retired players vote is optional.

It would be appreciated if you could include reasons for your votes but it’s not a requirement.

You can only vote once for the same player (eg. don't list Federer five times )

You can change your vote this year but you must let me know and tell me what you've changed via Private Message, otherwise the points you gave in your original vote will not be changed

Points Distribution for active players
#1 = 10
#2 = 9
#3 = 8
#4 = 7
#5 = 6
#6 = 5
#7 = 4
#8 = 3
#9 = 2
#10 = 1

Points Distribution for retired players
#1 = 25
#2 = 15
#3 = 5

Voting closes at 12 noon GMT on 1st December 2017

Last year's competition MTF 2016 Favourite Players Thread - Gold for Roger, Silver for Delpo, Bronze for Stan

Re: MTF 2017 Favourite Players Thread

Thank you @Berd Lover .

#1: Stan Wawrinka: Beautiful and deadly strokes and serve, I just love his game.
#2: Fernando Verdasco: When he's not f#ng up his game is so alpha . Some pleasing results this year.
#3: Tomas Berdych: Still great to watch, just not against the top guys . Seems lovely too .
#4: Ernests Gulbis: One of the most attractive BHs and serves (to make up for the FH ) in the game. Just needs to stop getting injured .
#5: Lucas Pouille: I need to update my sig some time. My personal next-gen pick. Progress has been slow but steady (a little frustrating at times this year but I have faith). Nice game all-round, he can do everything.
#6: Grigor Dimitrov: Despite his improved results this year, he's been dropping off my interest radar a little for a while. Still support him though.
#7: Benoit Paire: This guy could move around my top 10 a lot depending on his current 'state'. Right now he warrants a lot of criticism though. I think he should get help for his issues whatever they are. Still very pretty and underrated backhand.
#8: Vasek Pospisil: Out of top 100, losing in Challenger 2Rs but he's so darn likeable (his recently-starting Youtube channel only helps that) you just wish for him to turn it around. I like the intent of his game too though it's not clicking at the moment.
#9: Nikoloz Basilashvili: Oh boy, he's entertaining sometimes. I think despite being able to be labelled a 'ballbasher' his game is kind of unique too. A little like a roided (not an accusation!) Nishikori.
#10: Roger Fed: Don't think he's ever made my list but there ya go. As he gets older I realize what a hole he'll leave when he hangs it up.

Retired:

#1: Robin Soderling
#2: James Blake

Tennis is life...
Motivated Paire Berdych Gulbis Wawrinka Dimitrov Verdasco Giraldo
