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

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

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 :)

tangerine_dream
04-29-2004, 09:36 PM
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 :sad:

04-29-2004, 09:39 PM
but see that runs into problems for me b/c I liked Pete ;) So I just left him off ;) I have a hard time verbalizing why I think Roger is boring lol

04-29-2004, 09:43 PM
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. :lol:

hehehehe yep

it's not that I dislike Roger, I don't. I'm just extraordinarily ambivalent:)

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.

Federer - "I won so much on 5 different surfaces. I can't believe I wasn't #1 last year."
later on, he said, "Andy deserved #1." blah blah blah
he was so satisfied that some people believe he can win the Grand Slam this year...he says he's funny.
...had easy draws at Vienna, Rotterdam, Halle, Munich,
AO, where people thought that Dahveeed and Hewitt were really tough,
---poor thing earned only 1000 points...
...stays away from Queen's Club.
Ferrero - ouch, did he have the worst day of his life after every loss?
Agassi - ...talk to the hand cuz the face ain't talkin. Don't go there, gf!
Henman - "I can be one of the top 3 players!"
Spadea - Wyver wanted me, Canas and Bjorkman to beat Andy!
Safin - "He was lucky. My rabid supporters agree with me.
They're open-minded, fair people!!!!!!!!"
Ginepri - Pmac's boy
Schalken - I give my condolences to Sjengster...NOT
Dahveeed - Let's be fair...Andy beat him, gave excuses for Dave's losses, then Andy played like an imbecile at US Open, had to eat his words at Basel & Kooyong

Dirk
04-30-2004, 07:36 AM
Roger never said that quote. He did give Andy credit though. I guess we can discount all of Andy's wins besides Masters and Slams then too right heya? Roger plays Halle because he likes it there and the grass is closer to the Wimbly grass than Queen's Club. If he can win wimbly he can win Queen's. His draw at Oz was much tougher than Andy's.

Dirk
04-30-2004, 07:39 AM
Would anyone here vote Andy as the most exciting player to watch on tour? I would like to see a poll on that one.

I'm kinda surprised by the number of non-Roddick fans who crawled in here to vote or post. I wasn't expecting that. Oh well. :cool:

Would anyone here vote Andy as the most exciting player to watch on tour? I would like to see a poll on that one.

I would say that Andy is definitely ONE of the most exciting players out there (there are others). Maybe I'll start a poll on that in the Fed forum. ;)

And Hi Aphex :wavey: Don't run away! We don't bite. :toothy: ;)

I wonder how many die-hard Andy fans are bad-repping Sue and simer at the moment..

:confused: My answer would be none. I've never bad-repped anyone just because they didn't like Andy. That seems silly.

I did, however, get a few bad-repped points myself from some die-hard Safin fans. :lol:

No, I started this thread here in AR as a joke for the AR fans until Dirk the Brainless Troll Jerk (who's now banned from here :cool: ) thought he was being clever by trolling this forum of a player he hates and then reproduce the fans' posts in GM...for what reason, nobody knows. Strange fella, that one was. :cuckoo:

But he's gone now, thankfully, as are most of the other trolls who invaded this thread and tried to hijack it. :)

have to disagree a little williaer. I think Federer is an awesome talent. His shot-making is spectacular. As a personality tho...*yawn* :yawn: and the incessant hair fiddling has to stop.

In terms of quality of tennis it has to be Lleyton "Marathon Man" Hewitt. As far as I can tell, he doesn't really have any particularly killer shots: regular serve, barely volleys.... just sheer detemination and a will to win. All he seems to do is scamper from one end of the baseline to the next until he bores his opponent into an unforced error. Looking at his titles, you can't argue that it's effective. Then again, so is pulling teeth :rolleyes:
