Who would you favour? Vultures? Tacticians?

Name some players you think could win such a contest.

For those who have no clue what I'm talking about: they would be put in a controlled environment and fight to the death. Pretty much like gladiators in their time, but it would be out in the open and they could use natural resources to aid them in surviving.

Maybe this guy? He's been living as a hermit for a few years now. Probably learned a lot about wilderness, and he's got the spirit to endure.



Or maybe this one? Can't underestimate those biceps and the thick legs.



What about him? He's surely a toughened piece of iron.



Or this young fella? Already applying the war paint. Gotta love his drive.



Or maybe...

Current, retired, or anyone?

If we're talking retired, I'd list Safin and Lendl as top contenders.

From the current group, Tsonga, Haas, and Hewitt all seem like especially tough bastards.

Rafa is too dumb, Fed and Nole are too frail. Murray is the only one who would survive past the cornucopia out of the top 4. Nishikori would end up winning.

Let's keep it simple with active players only.

Some players could team up against others, like Melzer and Petzschner, or the Spanish players.

Take that into account as well. Who could take on the Spanish Armada in this kind of thing?

Would have to be a very good tactician.

The Spanish Armada would be no match for the Warlocq!

Berlocq could team up with Nalbandian and win the battle of endurance.

By that I mean eat Dave when things become tough.

The Spanish are akin to the Career Tributes.

I would back Flo Mayer though. He'll find sneaky ways to kill his opponents.

After these two outlast the rest, rather than fight to the death they'd threaten to commit suicide together. The rules will be reversed and a single winner declared - manlove

They are in a league of their own, nobody can take them down:



Plus they have the super secret weapon: the ready for battle Rafa. At the sight of his fight face the enemy would simply have to take one big step back.
