Top 20 most to least watchable

Just curious as to who of the top 20 people here enjoy watching most, personality notwithstanding.

For me:

1 Federer
2 Wawrinka

3 Thiem
4 Kyrgios
5 Dimitrov
6 Monfils
7 Pouille
8 Djokovic

9 Nishikori
10 Carreno-Busta
11 Zverev
12 Goffin

13 Nadal
14 Sock
15 Berdych

16 Cilic
17 Tsonga
18 Murray

19 Ramos
20 Raonic



There is some surface variation. I find Tsonga very enjoyable to watch on grass (probably top 5), excruciating elsewhere. Murray is likewise by far more watchable on grass than elsewhere. Wawrinka on the other hand is much less watchable on grass than other surfaces. Zverev is much more enjoyable on hard than on clay. But overall, given how many tour events are each surface, this is how I'd rank them. Curious as to other opinions.

Re: Top 20 most to least watchable

It really depends. The only person I'd watch regardless of his opponent is Federer. The rest need the "right" matchup for me to be interested or a peak form.

Re: Top 20 most to least watchable

any player is watchable in certain conditions and circumstances, depending on surface, who they're playing, weather, their current form, etc.

we're talking about pros who all hit the ball extremely well just with little differences (or improvements) and certain tactics. This line of thinking of "Omg it's so much more fun to watch Federer than Djokovic" suggests that you all wouldn't enjoy watching some local club players play a match. I don't like someone like Gilles Simon in their average matches but that doesn't mean there aren't some great Simon matches to watch

silly thread.

How is Tsonga ranked 20 on your list when you have the likes of Monfils and Berdych as your top 10?

I agree, Monfils really shouldn't be near the top. Because of his trickery and athleticism, he gets recognition, but that's just good for a few highlight reels. Usually I find his game quite boring.

1. Federer
2. Murray
3. Kyrgios
4. Goffin
5. Nadal
6. Dimitrov
7. Nishikori
8. Wawrinka
9. Tsonga
10. Djokovic
11. Thiem
12. Cilic
13. Sock
14. Pouille
15. Monfils
16. Berdych
17. Raonic
18. Zverev
19. Carreno Busta
20. Ramos

ANDY MURRAY

Hyeon Chung // Nick Kyrgios // Duck-hee Lee // Kyle Edmund
