MTF's Most Popular Player

I saw a recent thread with the same question but only to Roddick and Safin. Why not to all players?


This isn't the best player but it's your favorite player.

So many flock to Roger because he's #1, they weren't before when he was 18 though.

I knew Rafa would break through, Monfils will and Gasquet.

Most popular probably "ohhh he's hot" Safin. :rolleyes:

Look at all the avatars, GEEZ

JOHANSSONS/LJUBICIC

Croats have a big following too

See: Raver, RDucky, IvanLjubicic, etc

:lol: He is not only hot. His interviews are hilarious sometimes (although Rafa is working on it, lately),...... :scratch: he is the kind of player you hate or love, is unpredictable and....he is a great player too ;)

I agree, the "Others" category is not fair for all JCF`s fans (and many more...!!!) Can that be fixed?? :) (I know you canīt put all the players, but JC deserves it ;) in my opinion.....) For example, I`m a Gaudio fan too...., but I think that JC might be more popular...... :scratch: I guess.....

I voted for Nadal and others like Richard Gasquet cuz I think they both deserve it. Although Gasquet has already beaten Federer @Monte Carlo at age of 18. It's something that Federer couldn't do when he was that age.

Did I miss something? Is there something wrong with admiring winners? I think that's human nature. I don't think fans of players that lose time after time, are in any way superior to fans of Roger. What is an acceptable reason to like a player to you? If you can't consider physical attributes or success, what else is there?

And for the record, I became a fan of Roger when he was #2 in the world. :ras:

I "flocked" to Federer (as you put it) because I love to watch him play especially on a surface he feels comfortable. I had completely lost interest in tennis until by chance I watched him play in the finals of the 2004 US Open. I was simply blown away by this abilities and artistry in that match.

So I have Federer to thank for reviving my interest in tennis.

I realized only later that he was #1.

I became a fan of Roger when he beat Lleyton (who was my ultimate favourite at the time) at the Nasdaq 100 in 2002.

The problem is that you don't get to see many foreign players at 18 on American TV unless they are high ranked or draw americans/ other favorites to win at GS. I'm thankful that Gasquet had to play Nadal at this year FO, otherwise I'd have no chance to see him.

I caught Federer in February of 2001 when he singlehandedly beat American DC team and loved his game immediately. Should I consider myself a bandwagonner? :D

Sorry if I sound a bit dumb, but is it a poll to decide who's our own fave or who's the player who has the most success on the MTF? Because, I've made a choice, of course! A personal one, but if I had to vote for the player who has the most important number of threads all dedicated to him, my answer would be totally different. :)

It's to choice our favorite player in the tour. So, who will have most votes is the MTF's Most Popular Player.

My favourite player is Roger Federer, actually he revived my interest in tennis. I didn't follow the sport for years, when I saw him in Wimbledon 2003 against Roddick and Philippoussis and was impressed... Then I realised that there are more interesting players and that tennis isn't boring anymore.

Well, I am aware of that. If I was concernced about liking what everyone else liked I would talk myself into being a Roger fan I guess but I'm well past that stage-if I ever went through it at all. Nico and Fena are exciting players with a lot of personality on and off the court and I honestly care little for other players except Nadal. :)
