Everyone already knows who has been #1. It's a bit big. It would have been better if you had used photos of each player during their time as #1, instead of a random selection.

Still better than random signatures with the members' favourite players' achievements. Those signatures of the top 4 stating their achievements is incredibly pointless and just makes it look as though they're saying "My favourite player is better than yours" and the like.

The signature is a tribute, not an information panel. The idea was to create something unique and imaginative out of commonly known information, and make it a bit interactive. I thought the idea of portraying tennis players into beings with superhuman abilities was cute and interesting, although it was obvious that not everyone will appreciate it. I worked a few weeks carefully designing, cropping and editing the images to adhere to my views on mentioned players and it is for the people who appreciate it, not for the ones who don't.

About it being too big, I'll have you know it respects the forum's rule for maximum sig image width (600 pixels). The height cannot be reduced due to the fact that the image will be compressed, quality destroyed, and value nulled. I compensated for this by not adding any text. I could have done that and made the signature much larger than it is right now. Again, the sig's height (463 pixels) is lower than many other sigs with text only, or text and images that offer tribute to players or other stuff.

No offense but it is way too big and the content is pointless: those who care about tennis are aware of that stat, those who don't won't get what it is about.

Thank you for your feedback.

I see people around here do appreciate hard work. You learn something every day.

Slasher instead of using 8 on each row I'm sure you could fit about 11 which would make the picture shorter

Now that's a really useful comment coming along this series of negative unhelpful comments, born out of jealousy most likely.

Hum... People are jealous because you have a too big and pointless signature and they don't? Sure, that makes a lot of sense.

I was merely joking, but if you bite, I might say that they're jealous because they're unimaginative and couldn't come up with something as original.

Or I can be joking some more and say: You're jealous because mine is bigger and shinier than yours

No problem It's much better now! Maybe it would look a bit better if it was centered?

How about I run a little contest. Try to predict who number 26 will be and based on his game style, what color would you attribute to him ?

Guess I should have mentioned my reasoning in choosing the current color lineup:

Blue (Nastase, McEnroe, Sampras, Kafelnikov, Rafter, Federer) - Shot mastery, balanced game play, preference to tactics, if imbued with unpredictable comical shots -> leans to light blue (Ilie Nastase); if imbued with net play and serve and volley tactics, imbues to purple (Patrick Rafter) or darker blue (Kafelnikov), and if enough uniqueness in shots is reached, Dark Blue (John McEnroe).

Green (Connors, Courier, Agassi, Kuerten, Roddick) - Spirited style of play, baseline play or serve and volley tactics are both accepted here, if the player utilizes a lot of energy on the court. More defensive - yellow imbued (Jim Courier), variation of hits - blue imbued (Agassi, Roddick). Purely spirited (Connors as original, Kuerten for his unique grunts).

Yellow (Borg, Lendl, Moya, Ferrero) - Defensive style of play, or offensive baseline style of play, or nothing special, but non-aggressive style of play. If there is variation and a little net play, the color becomes white (Wilander). Aggressive moments in play lead to reddish or orange hints (Ferrero or Moya).

Orange (Newcombe, Becker) - Attacking style of play, not physically intense enough to be purely aggressive and combined with baseline play.

Purple (Edberg, Djokovic) - Attacking style of play, not physically intense enough to be purely aggressive and combined with shot mastery, or volley mastery (Edberg).

Maroon (Safin) - Attacking style of play with occasional aggressive moments dominated by power shots and groundstrokes (unique to Marat Safin).

Red (Muster, Hewitt, Nadal) - Aggresive style of play, physically intense hits, aggressive body language (Muster, Hewitt).

Gray (Marcelo Rios) - We all know what this neutral color means LOL

Following this, my estimate for Murray if he is 26th would be either green or yellow or a combination of them, mostly yellow. He's defensive like his mentor, Lendl.
