Default Re: 2012 MTF Top 10 Favourite Retired Players (4th update in post #110)

Here are my favorite retired players:

1. Cliff Richey - just a bulldog on the court; loved watching this guy play
2. Ivan Lendl - a legend, no more need be said
3. Guillermo Vilas - one of the greatest players of all time, and a real treat to watch on the court
4. Petr Korda - liked this guy's game, although the drug ban really killed his career and changed the way fans thought about him
5. Rod Laver - perhaps the greatest player ever; he against Federer in their prime would have been quite a match
6. John McEnroe - great talent, pretty bad attitude, but always fun to watch
7. Jimmy Connors - 1200+ lifetime wins; need you say more?
8. Michael Chang - a real scrappy player; loved his occasional underhand serve
9. Stefan Edberg- a beautiful game all around
10. Bjorn Borg - still may have the highest lifetime winning percentage of all time, even after going 0-16 in his ill-fated comeback after his retirement
