15 men became a grand slam champion in the 2000-2009 decade. Who is your favorite champion now that this decade is coming to an end?

But by the end of next year, it'll be Murray.

Sampras, Nadal and Federer are the best players of the noughties, but the favorite grand slam champion just depends on who your favorite player is I'm pretty sure.

i agree to an extent that there are not many good clay courters around these days but i will just have to ask you which sport are you watching when you say nadal is a defensive moonballer........

his style is defense based extreme offense.......the fact that he retrieves better than anyone in the history of the sport somewhat shadows his offensive capabilities.......laver, vilas, borg, lendl, kuerten were all great artists on clay but rafael is simply one of a kind, an extraordinary genius on clay.......i doubt if we will ever again see anyone who plays like him, especially on clay.......

On performance results definetly, but as this thread is about current popularity I can understand. Fact is that those at the top of the current rankings are often better liked than those former champions that have slumped (with the exception of Safin). And considering Ivanisevic is retired, I can understand somewhat. (but I totally understand what you're saying in my biased opinion)
