Roddick shouldn´t be on the list. He´s fun to watch especially when he´s mad. I always rofl when he screams around and does all kind of silly stuff. I don´t like him as player but he´s a hella good entertainer.
And I agree with Bjorkman Girl, Lleyton is also nice to watch. Good entertainer qualities just like Andy.

I think its just a poll featuring guys who are going to be in the top 10 or thereabouts at the end of the year and JCF isn't expecting Ferrero to be up at that level. :unsure:

:lol: An unfortunate mistake. Obviously as you left off your favorite player it hasn`t gone down well I`m afraid. In truth I quite like Ferrero although he wouldn`t be a favorite. There`s no one in the top 10 right now that is out and out boring in the way a guy like Magnus Norman was. Some are a little less exciting than others, that`s all.

Disagree with Tim Henman. Baseliners are boring and there's too much of them. Henman is one of the rare serve & volleyers nowadays, and he can pull of some spectacular volleys. Better than staying back playing to-me to-you to-me to-you....yawn.

Henman's winning this poll???? His serve and volley game isn't boring, he often comes out with spectacular volleys. It has to be either the counterpuncher Nalbandian or Roddick who wins his points with blasts instead of well placed shots. Sigma's probably gonna bad rep me for saying david

excuse me ginger, but ferrero does not just have '1 stupid fan' a lot of people like ferrero, including myself. it's ok to have an opinion but don't put others down because of it. And i think ferrero is the best, most interesting player ever, so i put gaudio as my choice.

Roddick - Extremely boring to watch, either its a big serve or 100 mph groundstroke, not much finesse at all.

Henman - Fall asleep watching him play, he doesn't inspire me with his tennis.

Federer - Cannot get into him at all, just find him boring.

Ferrero Forever
07-08-2004, 09:34 AM
crazy_fool, i agree with all of your reasons. I can't stand tim henman anyway, but your reasoning is good. Roddick is just a big server and hitter, thats it, and i quite like roger, but he's too good (not as good as Juanqui though and i don't care about their head to head or whatever), and his matches aren't interesting because the score is usually sooooooooooo much in his favour, he hardly has to put any effort into his matches

Crazy_Fool

Oh sorry for not having the same opinion as you, should I be shot?? I don't like Roddick because all he does is base his game around power and serving, please don't say i'm the only one as many have the same opinion. You don't like Hewitt and find him boring - I accept that, I wouldn't start having a go at you for it. I'm sorry if you can't see beyond your fave's, thats too bad. How about accepting that we all don't share the same opinion. Really, how old are you anyway? Lleyton's game is not all about power, he has some nice drop shots and that lob is pretty good. I think you are the one who is alone in thinking he is boring, 3/98 people have voted for him. 4 times more have voted for your beloved Federer, are they all wrong as well, better have a go at them too.

lmfao, mate this is about the most boring player, not the most hated. I think you have them confused. I find it hard to believe that someone so 'boring' gets you so irritated.

I was always "into" tennis, in that I had played it when I was younger and used to watch it quite a lot, but Lleyton Hewitt is responsible for really getting me interested in tennis.

I have never seen a competitor like Hewitt before on the tennis court. I love his warrior spirit and the way he takes it to those that are more gifted than he is through sheer tenacity and refusal to lay down.

I also love the fact that he can beat and lose to just about every player and always engages in closely contested matches with no matter who he is playing against. it makes watching hsi games thrilling, as the outcome is always in dispute up to the last point.

he may not have the most flashy or interesting looking groundstrokes, but for sheer heart and competitive mettle he is unparalleled.

By the way, about the most boring, I find all the one dimensional big servers boring.

Reminds me too much of Hewitt. The RG final was great though :D One of the best finals in a long time. I love watching Gaudio play, so i'm sure that also kept the entertainment sustained. Great match, that was.

From a tennis point of view Hewitt is the most boring on the list but Schuettler wins the cake overall..............Hewitt does everything Schuettler does, only better.

Hewitt is alright to watch when he is playing someone like Federer/Roddick or Nadal because Hewitt is actually forced to go for his shots a bit more but watching him against other counter punchers is difficult.

So out of 27 votes spread between Roddick and Hewitt only 3 chose Hewitt :confused:

Think you are being a bit harsh there, I mean personality wise there is no way that Hewitt is as boring as Federer or Grosjean for example, so in that way I don't find him boring. His tennis may not be that great, but there are other apects to a tennis player ;)

Fedex
07-09-2004, 07:30 PM
Well, some people think his personality is boring, at thats their opioion. Personally i love his personality. He does show emotion when he's in trouble, ie. 2004 Wimbledon Final. He probably showed more emotion then Andy did. And if you really like that aspect of a player just make sure you get the Federer-Henman Paris match, and the Dubai match, where in both he smashes his raquets in frustration. Personally thats not my thing. But i would actually love to get those matches, even though he lost in straight sets in both, just to see the raquet throwing. He rarely ever does it, and it most be odd to see him do it. Just like that Henman-ballboy incident. How funny it must have been to see someone so cool lose it!! :haha: But i personally love the Borg personality. He was one of my favourites because of his game AND his ice cool demenor. Like i said, i'm sure it was a difficult decsion, as most people here who dont like Roddick, dont like Hewitt. ;) I havent voted, because i cant decide who's more boring. :zzz:

Yeah. He's routinely called one of the the best tacticians out there.

I'm not sure why you find that amusing. Lots of people, including Federer, have said it. You know better than them, though. :lol:

Funny, now what Federer said about Murray (if it's positive) is relevant
Murray is a pusher, and you know it :D



Now seriously, he's intelligent, yes, but on his last matches (since the clay season) he basically pushes the ball :shrug:
Where's the Murray of Montreal, Cincy or Madrid? Missed.

Ridiculous options in that poll. Federer? Hewitt? Roddick? *facepalm*

The current world #4 should be there. Stalling the game, faking injuries and solliciting medical timeout for fatigue and retiring when one is about to lose are 4 really annoying things, but that guy has done it so often, it is getting boring.

As for the current results, WTF? Roddick gives the best show on tour on court, between points and in press conferences. Federer still makes crazy shots every match he plays.

Undoubtedly Del Potro. Someone on here called him the ball machine, and it's remarkably apt. People call Murray a pusher, but at least he thinks somewhat on court. Del Potro being in trouble against Hewitt last night and thinking the best way out of it was to crank backhands five feet out of the court was painful to watch.
Rafael 'Moonball the Backhand' Nadal comes in a close second.

Karlovic for sure. There may be someone more boring out there that I just haven't seen yet but Karlovic is the most boring of players I've seen. I don't even watch his matches against Roger & as a big Roger fan that's kind of strange for me but he's all serve & nothing else...dull, dull, dull. You know it's like 98% chance of no breaks & just tiebreaks all through & then it's almost just luck as to who wins those tiebreaks. Dislike it & thus choose not to watch it.

Robredo is no where near as boring as Karlovic. I've really grown to like Tommy over the last couple of years. Especially after he lost to Djoko at the USO last year and gave that interview...:yeah: Tommy is a rock star and a cheater (according to some). Tommy's game lacks any major weapon except raw determination which, albeit can lead to some boring rallies. That said Karlovic doesn't have rallies. So in this case it's a no contest.

I dub thee... Borlovic!

Murray can definitely be boring but there are far more boring players. I think Djokovic is far, far more boring than Murray.

Then there's the likes of Nishikori, Ferrer, Raonic, Ramos and so on.

If I had to choose, it'd be out of Nishikori, Ferrer and Monaco. Their styles are all very boring.

And aside from the occasional Ferrer "puta" and that time a ball flew out of Monaco's pocket during the match against Djokovic at the 2007 US Open which induced infuriation, not much else to enjoy.
