Taste is the feminine form of genius

To aid my memory and broaden our range:

Ellen
Level 1: Gulbis - Djokovic
Level 2: Roddick - Simon - Del Potro - Youzhny - Nadal - other Latvians - Belgians
Level 3: Chardy - Gonzalez - Cilic - Kunitsyn - other Frenchies, Bryan bros
Level 4: Other players
I don't really hate anyone except Almagro.

Raquel
Level 1: Nole
Level 10: Dancevic
Level 11: Gillou, Kolya and Wawa
Level 12: A bunch of players

Raine
1. Novak Djokovic
2. Baghdatis
3. Clement
4. Safin - Tsonga - Verdasco
5. Hewitt- Soderling- Roddick - Gulbis -Simon
6. Ferrero - Moya - Haas - Cilic - Ancic
7. Tipsarevic - Monfils
8. Troicki - Gasquet - Tursunov
9. Berdych - Youzhny - Blake - Wawrinka
10. Murray
Dislike list: Federer, Nadal and Sharapova

Rosie
Level 1: Djokovic
Level 2: Tipsarevic
Level 3: Tursunov, Youzhny, Cilic, Ancic, Baghdatis, Soderling, Kolya
Level 4: Most other players
And contrary to popular opinion I don't "hate" anyone either But I do admit to disliking some -mainly:
a) Nadal
b) Bryan Twins - Andy Murray - Nicolas Kiefer - Andy Roddick

Elle
1. Djokovic
2. Federer
3. Rafa (though mostly off court. For some reason, I sometimes find myself unwillingly cheering for the underdog whenever he's playing)
Then in no particular order - Delpo, Simon, Verdasco, Davydenko, Monaco, Ancic, Cilic, Tipsy, Ferrer, Wawrinka, Safin, PHM and others.
I don't like:
Roddick, Murray, BryanBros, Blah (as in Blake), Monfils, SB's on court antics (though off court ), Fogninny.

Re: Taste is the feminine form of genius

Herdwick, you missed my post that I love the Bryan brothers! They're at level 2. Well, maybe they've dropped a place after I became fan of JM, Simon, and the other Latvians. Level 3 then, please!

Re: Taste is the feminine form of genius

This is fun.

I forgot about Kolya. He is level 11 as well.

Thanks m'dear

Our top 3 are the same except for Richie. I'm quite indifferent to babyFed
And I completely forgot about Fognini ugh. His face makes me want to vomit.

Re: Taste is the feminine form of genius

Fogfeatures duly added.

Only seen a couple of matches of his but he immediately made me want to slap him. And not in an 'exasperated but I quite like you' Safin type of way but slap him really hard.

Richie I have followed since he was 17 or so. He has irritated me beyond measure during that time but I retain fondness and - albeit increasingly forlorn - hopes for him.

Re: Taste is the feminine form of genius

I just remembered two more of my likes while showering - Safin and PHM Le sigh. These two are purely for reasons. Oh and the fact I was showering was not why I remembered them...I dont think...

Oh and re: Richie - I think I am indifferent because from what I have seen of him on court he doesn't seem to have much of a personality. I can see he has a natural talent for tennis but as people have said, he has not fulfilled his promise Plus, he was rather curt with the fans after his win over Taylor Dent in Brisbane. Even Dent, who lost, was much more courteous and stayed at least 15minutes longer than Richie so. hm.

Re: Taste is the feminine form of genius

Any particular order? Or just in with the general herd?

Re: Taste is the feminine form of genius

BTW, I have a problem. You see, I like Murray as well. Ideally and realitically, Nole as #1 and Andykins as #2 would be perfect for me.

But I don't like like Andykins, I just like.

Re: Taste is the feminine form of genius

Herdwick's commitment is not in doubt

Am beginning to think we do have a certain collective talent for titles. Looking round some other forums they tend to be very boring and predictable - 'The XXXX cheering thread' or 'XXXX at Roland Garros'.

We are creativity personified here by comparison

Raquel - I don't quite understand that last post?
