This was a tough question. My nominees were Kuerten because I love his style, character and his dramatic burst into the tennis hall of fame with the RG97 win. Rafter because of his beautiful serve and volley game and such a great competitor. Edberg for the same reasons and before and for sentimental reasons. He was my fav player in the late eighties, early nineties, so stylish and cool on the court.
Iīm going for Kuerten though because when he plays well, especially on clay, itīs entertaining, thrilling and majestic. God, I love that man!

I voted for Carlos too. But, I agree, Goran is definitely one of my favorites ever.

Can't stand his odd grunt though, very annoying, sounds a bit euphoric.

Oh I love Kuertenīs grunt!!!!!!!!!!!! I like grunting in general, i think the players are getting off on the drama and playing up to the crowds. Or maybe they cant help it. I donīt know.
Out of curiousity, how come Kuerten isnt on this poll? Doesnīt really matter cos you can vote for other but just wondering how he couldnīt be a main contender with all his credentials.

One of the more boring polls.

Roddick, Jo. Johansson, Dent

Roddick - Plays quick, great kick on the serve plus tremendous velocity

Johansson - Great serve and aggressive playing style

Dent - Chip and charge is a lost art. Dent uses it to his advantage with the big serve and creates good angles coming to net off of the short ball.

Chip and charge, baby! CHIP TO THE NET AND CHARGE THE WIN ON THE OPPONENTS CREDIT CARD!

hard... I have to say Ivanisevic, but also Federer. And I think Chiudinelli as well (though I only like him since a while, and to name an all time favorite I think I should like players a longer time.)

i like all of the player in my sig- but hewitt is someone who i really like. This is becasue he is a true fighter, he does not give up- not even for an impossible ball. I aslo admire nadal for the same respect.

Such a poll should never be made if Edberg is not one of the options.
