Who are/were your favourite and least favourite American ATP players?

My faves were probably Agassi and McEnore (loved the personalities of both of these guys) whereas the ones I liked the least were probably Sampras (never liked his game and he was kind of boring on and off the court) and Connors (who was an idiot, imo).

I guess I should also name Todd Martin. His oldie looks when he was finishing his career always got me for some reason and he was a good guy overall. Chang deserves a mention as well for his dedication on the court and the fact that he always liked to honour his roots (something I respect).

Andy Roddick is a bit of a weird case for me. I used to hate him back in the old days but now I'm slightly neutral towards him and I don't know why.

Anyhow, what about you?

I don't like any American player.

Love Blake.

Like Roddick personality and looks-wise but his tennis is boring as shit.

04-17-2010, 08:49 AM
O yeah, I support Blake too.

04-17-2010, 09:15 AM
Blake is the only one I like

04-17-2010, 11:06 AM
I really like Querrey, Harrison and Isner. I don't mind the rest really.

04-17-2010, 12:21 PM

this one is mine favorite :)

04-17-2010, 01:10 PM
liked samprass, disliked the rest

04-17-2010, 01:26 PM
I liked Jim Courier(was always a favorite) the most, also Andre Agassi, John McEnroe and I do support Andy Roddick, as well as Jan-Michael Gambill(when he was playing). I was never a fan of Michael Chang and now a days I find myself rooting against Sam Querrey.

04-18-2010, 05:29 AM
I liked Jim Courier. Never liked Agassi or Sampras.

I really like Isner, I like Blake, Roddick is alright, and so is Harrison.

Favorite Agassi, Roddick, Blake
Least Sampras, Martin, Connors

04-18-2010, 05:56 AM
I like Agassi, but I'm focusing on current players.

Fave: Personality-wise, I don't particularly like any American player, but if I had to choose I'd go with Isner. Seems like a nice guy. Game-wise, I'd say Fish but I don't care for him other than that.

Least fave: Pretty much all of them, Roddick, Blake and BryBros especially.

04-18-2010, 06:14 AM
Favorite: Isner
Used to hate Young until I realized how much his parents had ruined his career so far. His interview at the Aus Open was so sad to me.

04-18-2010, 07:23 AM
Most Favourite: AGASSI, McEnroe, Courier, Roddick, Blake, Chang

Least Favourite: Sampras

04-18-2010, 11:01 AM
I liked Paul Goldstein a lot! 12 Challenger titles and this:
Became first player in collegiate history to help his school to four straight NCAA team titles

Plus I really like Jim Courier for saving Australian Open viewers from (often awful) Australian commentators. Michael Chang also had a fascinating career and I was impressed with youngster Ryan Harrison when I saw him at the Australian Open this year.

I don't like Agassi and I'm annoyed at Todd Martin for saving a match point versus Carlos Moya in the US Open 4th round in 2000 (but otherwise he's an excellent guy).

04-18-2010, 11:05 AM
I dislike Agassi.

04-19-2010, 06:58 PM
Favorites: McEnroe, Agassi, Ashe, Blake, Roddick, Querrey, Bryan Brothers

04-19-2010, 07:01 PM
Like- Agassi, Isner, McEnroe, Sampras, Krickstein, Russell, Todd Martin
Dislike- Gilbert

04-19-2010, 08:43 PM
I'm a big fan of Roddick's and I like Querrey.
I dislike Dent.

04-19-2010, 09:09 PM
Hmmm....never liked Chang for his overt bible-thumpiness, and Agassi in the initial stages of his "Mr. 80s Mullet Image" days, and Sampras towards the end, during his "ZOMG I am the GOAT of all Times !" days.
Other than that, they are all ok, I quite root for Roddick through most of his career.

04-19-2010, 09:29 PM
like most of them. almost all of them seem fun to be around. never really dug sampras but i don't hate him. it's strange because i really dislike all the american wta players.

04-19-2010, 09:57 PM
I can't think of any active Americans I dislike. I hate Agassi because he is a whiny self-pitying druggie sell out bitch, but I only found this out last year.

I like Roddick Blake Fish Querrey Isner without actively supporting any of them.

Like: Blake, Isner, Querrey, Bryans, Fish, Dent, Martin.
Used to dislike Roddick's on-court behavior, but he seems to have matured, so I'm liking him more.
On-and-off like for Agassi, Sampras, and Ginepri. Robby is ok, just saw a lot of immaturity in him during a match in Cincy, but I think he's grown up since then.

We should do a poll about the most hated retired player, I'm almost sure Sampras will win that one.
