In terms of pure ability, who would you put in your top 10. This has nothing to do with results, just pure tennis ability.

Mine are:

1. Federer
2. Safin
3. Ferrero
4. Nalbandian
5. Moya
6. Roddick
7. Coria
8. Malisse
9. Nadal (I would put him higher but I think he isn't there quite yet)
10. Guga

SAFIN surely has the talent çause when you're reluctant to play and you still can come up with "things"... that is talent right there!
__________________________________________________ ______________________

It was a shame to see Marat Safin so despondent after his first-round exit, claiming he had "given up on grass", but the Russian is prone to extravagant outbursts and will surely be back. like b4 & b4 that & b4 that......

I am honestly surprised how many people left Coria out of a Top ten, he has the best ball control in the Tour...he lacks power, serve and is fragile, but he does whatever he wants with the ball... Only healthy and/or motivated Rios and Agassi rival him in that department.

Yeah, so true. It is great to have a great talent, but it takes a great talent to 'manage' that great talent. Federer does this magnificently.

Heart, and fighting capabilites he has, but the talent that the other top ten players have is lacking.
Oh, well, Arazi is a very gifted player, but since people cant see i made a mistake and leave it at that (alfonso), he is not a new ball so i would replace him with Haas. Great talent he has. One of the best all-court games in tennis. Also Srichaphan has many gifts, and is a joy to watch when he's on, but sadly he rarely is :(

yes, he has achieved more. but here its about talent (natural ability). Talent and Achievements are two DIFFERENT things and shouldn`t be mixed. There tend to be players who have lots more talent than another players and achieve less than him during the career, for different reasons.
