First I wanted to vote Korolev cos I thought the choice would be between him, Youzhny, Davydenko and Andreev. Then I scrolled down and I saw my fantastic Gaba BUT then even more down was the one and the only Sasha Kudryavtsev :angel: the most mental player on Earth, who obviously gets my vote :worship:

I like them all - maybe except Kunitsyn, whom I find completely neutral and Kudryavtsev, whom I haven't seen.

Traitor Nathii :ras:

Always choosing a psycho over a nice boy :lick:

But together with Labadze, Koellerer, Schukin, Dolgopolov, Golubev, Marchenko and Przysiężny these three I mentioned are my top ten fave players :).

Davydenko

People used to think Davydenko was boring, now that he wins more, more people like him. This is MTF.

Denko is my fav Russian as well.
Him calling Etienne De Villers 'Mr Disney' in a public statement a few years ago sealed the deal for me. :worship:

Kafelnikov & Safin

Current after next week: Andreev & Youzhny

Never been a huge fan of Russians, both ATP and WTA. If I was forced to choose, however Youzhny gets my vote.:yeah:

Sunset of Age

Well I don't know if he was the first to come up with it in general, but he surely was the first to mention the nick in a public comment. Might well be that he reads MTF. :p

Would like to dig up the original statement, but can't find it right now. It happened somewhere around the time when the grumbling about Mr. Disney, after his Round-Robin experiment-fiasco, as well as the downgrading of Monte Carlo as a Masters tournament, got louder-and-louder.

Hope someone is able to provide a link...

To make this poll more interesting you should have taken Marat out "Who is your fave Russian player except for Safin?" :lol:

If not Marat, for me it's Youzhny and Andreev. The DC heroes :rocker2:

Anybody but Safin. Prob Youzhny and Davy.

11-09-2009, 04:44 AM
I'll watch our for Andrey Kuznetsov. He seems to be the most promising among all the young Russians.

JolánGagó
11-09-2009, 09:40 AM
Davydenko, then Youzhny. Tursunov is a nice guy but his tennis is crapstatic.

Zhenya Kafelnikov forever:bowdown:

momo_momo
11-09-2009, 02:10 PM
Without a doubt, Marat.

I like Igor Andreev and Dmitry Tursunov too. :P

momo_momo
11-09-2009, 02:20 PM
his fangirls

him and gulbis have the most on MTF

I hate Safin and Gulbis fangirls :o

If this 14 year old kid was a little bit nicer maybe folks will start joining his little Murray club...but now all they do is hate on Muzza because he has a fan like him.

Ha!

Chesnokov and Volkov were the best ones.

Tom Paulman
11-09-2009, 05:15 PM
Youzhny is the only one I like.

And maybe Zverev, although he's not officially Russian.

11-09-2009, 06:47 PM
Youzhny.

ad-out
11-09-2009, 08:55 PM
Marat - now and always. But I like most of the Russians - Andreev is my 2nd favorite.

Kunitsyn.

A lot of people sure are bandwagoning Youzhny aren't they? Not that it's a bad thing. :D

The Colonel, Marat and Kolya, in that order ;)

When he's on, Davydenko is my favorite to watch. But usually I prefer The Colonel, he's got a great game.

Marat Safin

ATP won't be the same without him for me :sad:

Marat Safin

ATP won't be the same without him for me :sad:
ATP no, but apparently he's playing Hong Kong exo early next year. Who knows how much he'll play after that though...:sad: I'd say he'll take a long vacation. We might not hear from him for a while...

Kolya
11-10-2009, 10:49 AM
Err... Davydenko.

Currently: Still Marat. As for the future I am not yet decided, any recommendations? ;)

I've been fond of Youzhny for long, and surely yes recent performances have not affected it ;)

Last week, he played a backhand almost crouching on his knees, which was huge :eek:

Isn't he Georgian?

Gavashvili has Russian nationality although his name is clearly Georgian

BaselineSmash

Davydenko, though I took a long time to warm to him. His game is the nearest we have to Agassi's these days, and his consistency in an era of injury-prone and under-performing players is impressive.
