Red face Most Boring Player?

Just for you guys! Who do you think is the most boring player today?

I'm talking about active players today, so Pete Sampras gets a reprieve from this poll.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Best of all, you can vote as many times as you like!

Re: Most Boring Player?

oh NICE! good poll tangy

but see I don't think Roger's boring b/c he's #1.... he's boring b/c he's boring LOL But since Spadea and Schalken could be even more boring I guess I'll just leave God out of this one

Re: Most Boring Player?

I didn't mean that he's boring because he's No. 1. I mean that he's boring like Pete Sampras used to be boring: a dominant player with no personality (that's just my interpretation of Pete Sampras); or maybe he's boring because everything about him is flat-out boring. lol. Whatever you decide.


Seeing as how that probably confused you, I would edit Roger's line but I don't know how

Re: Most Boring Player?

No, I understand perfectly well why you find Rogi boring.

It's kinda funny how you and I are flip-flopped on Pete and Roger.

Re: Most Boring Player?

I voted for Ferrero.

Actually, he's probably not the most boring player, but too late now.

If I can't vote for Pete, I'm not voting!!!

*pouts fretfully*

But of course, Spadea must be winning this poll hands down. I don't think any of the others are truly boring.

Re: Most Boring Player?

GM has had a few Boring Player threads already. But we haven't had one in the Andy forum yet.

OK, who clicked on "other" and then didn't name him?
