Nadal won the 2005 Roland Garros title not 2004! :)

As usual, you're sooo bad, TF. :devil:

I say they both win. They're young major winners with the goods to appeal to diverse audiences. More power to them. With Rafa's English progressing so well, I hope to see his 'Sure Shot' commercial on a continuous loop soon. :D

Why are there two threads about this topic?
And as for me, ANYTHING but Shriekpova will do.

No, it's the "Power Shot" ;) I saw it for the first time during non-tennis programming. It just aired tonight after CSI (the No.1 show in America).

In the eyes of the US, Maria wins, hands down. Purely for the sex appeal factor.

Many non tennis fans in the States actually think Anna K. was one of tennis great players.
Really? All the casual fans and non-tennis watchers I know remember her as "that bimbo who never won anything."

Same here. I often get snipey and correct people who insist that she was an awful player. I imagine that few of them are in the top ten at anything as she once was ;)

Yeah, I'd like to see that commercial. Rafa blasting shots onto the backwall, spelling "Rafa Was Here, No?" with tennis balls. Then slowly reach to take out his wedgie, before reaching for his Camera. Then he'd look at the camera, saying, "Every Shot Estas Un Shot Con Power, No?" Then flip the camera man off, and say "Here is your power shot."

I voted for Maria btw. Her attitude reminds me of a young fearless Seles, with an ever louder grunt. :)

I'd have to say Rafa because he annoys me way less than Sharapova!

Rafael! not annoying(like sharapova) Great arms and great butt! Oh yeah and not a bad tennis player too :p

I think Rafael is interested in Sharapova, whenever he arrives at a tournament he always asks if she is there. They would make a beautiful couple!

Since Sharapova gives me a woody and Nadal doesn't, I'll vote for:

Maria.

Not very keen on both of them, but since she's my compatriot - Sharapova.

Rafael:
Is a man
Has physical features which I find extremely appealing
Does not make a high pitched 'err AHHHH!!!!!' sound every time he hits a ball.
Is not Sharapova.

Rafael wins.

Oh, TF, eventhough I've seen the commercial a million times, I could care less if it's power or sure etc. :lol: Maria might as well be schilling kitty litter for all I care. Rafa, too, for that matter. They're nice looking young people and I wish them the best. I'm a big CSI fan! u?

I voted for Masha but Nadal is appealling in his own way. He's like a big puppy. :dog: :) They are both good for tennis that's for sure. :D

Probably, but she does have a lot of HATAS who would vote for anybody but her, so it's hard to be sure.

I like both, but Sharapova way more than Nadal. Recently they've been falling on my fave-list, though - but I still like them :p

Vamos Maria! :p

I'd rather listen to Nadal's heavy grunt than listen to Maria squeal like a mouse all throughout a match, I can tell you that much. ;)

I posted a twin poll on WTAWorld.

I enjoy watching Maria more.. I dunno what's so bad about her actually. The screams are a bit irritating (And so is Rafa's jumps). But it's ok. I got used to it. Maria is ok ;)

Well said Eternal. Some people make up their minds to not like Maria and it's as simple as that.

I like Maria, because she's better looking, has achieved more and has proven that she can play on all surfaces. Plus I got her autograph at the Pan Pacific Open in February :)

I really love Nadal and especially the way he fights. He is just the best competitor out there on the mens tour right now even better than Hewitt. Maria is a really good competitor but Nadal most certainly tops that.

LaTenista

It's like Barbie vs G.I. Joe IMHO....I know which one I'd pick for my tour/war

Seriously, I think a Rafa G.I. Joe would be a good marketing idea in Spain - he's already a hero for winning Davis Cup and Roland Garros.

I can only take so many shrieks from Maria before I have to change the channel due to headache coming on.
