Come on guys!! Instead of bashing other players, or fans, I feel that in some weird way, we're all connected together like in a huge family becos we are in this forum together!! :yeah:

So just say something nice about players you dun really like!! :)
(For example, you like the person's style of play, the way he serves or hits the ball even if you dun like his attitude... )

Pls dun used this thread as a chance to be sarcastic...it was never my intention to make things worse...

So just try it!!! :bounce:

I couldn't stand Rios when he was playing- but he had the most awesome mezmerising game I had ever seen.

One of the most incredible personal performances on a tennis court I had ever saw was the 1998 Key Biscayne final- Rios v. Agassi. Everything Agassi tried Rios fired back at him, it was a truly awesome display.

Another player I couldn't stand was Michael Chang but it amazed me how you could never count him out- two sets to love down, 5-0, 40-0 you still never had the feeling the match was over with him.

Coria has nice clothing and his shoes are always very good :)

It's not nice to watch but I suppose Rusedski and Ljubicic have both good effective serves and aren't too bad at volleying either.

Spadea is hard-working and great at making up for his lack of talent.

I'm not a huge Roddick fan either (far from it....I'm still burning after Moya led 30-15 in Miami :o ;) ), but I will say that he's gotten more people interested in tennis in the US. And that he can be very funny and articulate in interviews and articles. He's powerful and an excellent server and has done wonders for American tennis.

Roddick for the most part is well-spoken and gives the press good soundbytes. And he saves fellow tennis players from burning buildings. There I managed 2 nice things:

http://www.sptimes.com/2004/05/02/Sports/Roddick_okay_as_fire_.shtml
"It was early Saturday in Rome, and Andy Roddick was standing on the balcony of his burning hotel, speaking into his cell phone and describing in a newsman's measured clip the chaos all around him.
...Guests at the Grand Hotel Parco dei Principi were trying to escape the flames by jumping onto the wraparound balcony outside Roddick's sixth-floor suite. He heard screaming outside his door...
There were people in the hallway, groping for fresh air. Some were hysterical. Roddick, 21, pulled almost a dozen people into his spacious room and herded them onto the balcony."

It's an opinion of a friend of mine - Roddick makes him happy because he's just a simple guy. He doesn't really think even when he plays tennis. He likes the simpleness of Andy. It makes people kinda relaxed.
