...seems to be coming true with so many top players out. :scared:

But in your opinion, who would be the worst player to win TMC Shanghai this year?

Andy Roddick....so sweet dream for me so far:).
I hope Gaudio can win though, because i thnk he is good looking.

Gaudio tanking is my worst TMC nightmare, please dude just try, even if you lose first set. If he wins matches he will have deserved to because he put the necessary effort in.

Federer will be the nightmare winner, as he wins everything, time for a change. :cool:

Ljubo....because he would suffer from permanent constipation with the number of Croat fans that would get their heads stuck up his ass. :devil:

oups i didn't read the purpose of the poll and i voted for nalbandian :haha: i would vote for gaudio actually

But in all seriousness, I wouldn't mind seeing Ljubo win. I think he has a great chance tbh...only Federer can really stop him, and maybe Nadal. But Federer has played little in the last couple of months and is most vulnerable in the RR stage, and there, Ljubo has the chance of beating him. He should have beaten Nadal last month...who knows whether he will exact revenge next week... :shrug:

The player I DO NOT WANT TO WIN is Coria. If he wins then I will never return to this forum....

If any of the alternates who got in only because of someone else's injury/withdrawl win, that would by far be my least preferable outcome.

Fed, Rafa, Andre, Guille, or even Davydenko would all be acceptable to me, even if I don't necessarily care for a couple of them.

I don't comprehend why so many people think Ivan should not win it. There seems to be nothing wrong with his personality and he does do well on faster courts so why? :shrug:

Is it because of the perception that most of his fans go overboard in this forum? :confused:

My nightmare winner would be Coria or Gaudio. Coria because of his personality and Gaudio because many times, he doesn't take his tennis seriously and I don't like that. Even if Gaudio is extremely focused and somehow manages to win, his tanking mentality is unacceptable.

Let's see how many titles they won this year and how did they perform in Grand Slams

Roger Federer

SF, SF, W, W

titles: 11

Rafael Nadal

4th, W, 2nd, 3rd

titles: 11

Andre Agassi

QF, 1st, DNP, runner up

titles: 1

Guillermo Coria

4th, 4th, 4th, QF

titles: 1

Nikolay Davydenko

QF, SF, 2nd, 2nd

titles: 1

Ivan Ljubicic

2nd, 1st, 1st, 3rd

titles: 2

Gaston Gaudio

3rd, 4th, DNP, 1st

titles: 5

David Nalbandian

QF, 4th, QF, QF

titles: 1





To sum up - only two players deserve to play in Shanghai and they should play 5 matches on different surfaces. The one who gets 3 wins is the M.A.S.T.A.H.

Thanks to everyone who voted in the poll. So far, it looks like the only two players not likley to cause MTFers nightmares are Agassi and Nalbandian. Personally, I would love to see Agassi win this thing. :D

my tmc nightmare was having a ton of players withdraw...that's already happened.
Good point.

Davydenko- as much as I respect the achievements he has had this year it has been difficult for me to get used to the idea that he is a top 10 player considering his results as of late :tape:

Frankly, the thing that would annoy me the most would just be if the quality of matches sucked and whoever won did so not necessarily because they played well at all during the tourney, but because their opponents always played like poo.

And I would hate to see any player tanking (Gaudio-behave!)

Would also hate it if any player had to retire in a match because of injury.

Wait.. Just realised it could be even worse.."They say", Gonzalez was instructed by ATP to fly urgently to Shanghai today.. That could only mean that someone else's withdrawal is on cards.. Federer? Then , if he withdraws, what about Nadal-Puerta final.. Ewwww...
