I chose the attitude on court and off court, but for me it's also the ability to stay calm on difficult/hard times. :)

I like a little craft!

That's why I like.... Ferrero? Shut up.

I went with attitude on court and off court, because that defines a person and can make it possible for a player to survive tough moments during matches. If a player is mentally tough, that is, in my opinion, worth much more than, for instance, a good serve.

I voted for a great backhand cause I like those great single-handed backhands.... Tommy, Alex, Gaudio,....

But the attittude is also something that I like.

I think a great player needs a combination of all of the above, but in the end I went for attitude too, - the ability to fight and never give in, and to believe in yourself is the most important thing I think.

Heart-pure heart. A player who will give it his or her all, and will go down swinging, is one I admire the most.....

Heart is important.

Guga :)

But, I like different players for different reasons.

Xa-Xa has almost no fighting heart at all, but I still like him.

I picked the energy.... but attitude and stuff like that is very important to me too.

Well I guess the personality fits under attitude , so that has my vote. I appreciate the craftiness too, though.

I pick the attitude on and off court. Can't believe it's the most popular one right now with 50% of the votes.

I also see attitude as personality, so I voted for this. I respect all gifted tennis players, but the personality is what makes a player really special for me.

Everything, I like a player with a lot of variety in their game as well as an attitude on court like Borg.

I voted energy but I would also say mental fortitude and patriotism rate highly (and not just for Australians either!). Not the heart on sleeve ra ra kind of patriotism, but practical things like consistently playing Davis Cup and producing their best tennis in it, and helping youngsters. This is why Todd Martin is my favourite American, for example.

The attitude on court, giving your everything, fighting til the last point is played! :)
And staying calm on important points! ;)

Forehand (i.e. Ferrero) and backhand (i.e. Nalbandian). I generally like the two-handers more on the backhand side.

I think it should be a combination of all and my preferred mixture of the aspects is what we can see and find from Marat Safin... ;)

I guess all of the options.. but personality is an important factor IMO :)

I like it when players work hard all the time and maintain a good attitude, even when they are losing. But there are lots of different reasons that i like my favourite players.
