Murray because he is my favourite.

Objectively Frauderer by far.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

I mean to you as an individual, a tennis fan, what player's absence would really make the tour less entertaining for them drastically, for whatever reasons

We have Baghdatis, he will challenge the Vulture next season. I'd miss Federer the most because it's always entertaining when he loses.

I think John-Patrick Smith is the next Bjorn "The Claytard" Borg.

Default Re: Player you think the tour would be most boring without?

It would be whichever player has the least number of boring matches.

Top players play a lot of boring matches because they steamroll everyone. I would probably go with Tsonga or Hewitt or Llodra or someone like that. Not necessarily great players, but if I am at the first week of a Slam I will always make an effort to see them play because win or lose their matches are often exciting.

Federer and it's not even close. He's the last champion of his kind.

it does seem the cliche route to vote Federer, but then again you're sort of right, maybe he is the last of his breed for this CURRENT generation, no one really shotmakes like he does out there, and those that try have not been successful thus far, ala Grigor Dimitrov

could be a while until we saw another Federer and the tour might become a big grind fest without him. hm.

Exactly, I love Rafa but I was tearing my hair out in pure frustration at the AO final this year, a 6 hour grindathon isn't my idea of fun, if surfaces keep slowing down we might see 90% grinders and a few ballbashers every now and then (those aren't exactly consistent) but people like Roger who are more about shotmaking and economic movement are very rare in these times.

Dimitrov is Fed lite in all aspects, he tries to emulate the old man but lacks the sheer talent the Swiss has, his strokes might look similar but are ages away of what Roger has been able to produce (And for all the talk about his headcaseness, you don't win 17 GS by sheer luck or sheer talent, you have to be mentally strong and ballsy to do that)

How many one-handers are left in the top 20? who's the only one-hander consistently vying for titles these days? Roger, like I said he's the last of his kind; hell how many youngsters are there with one-handed backhands? it's really a dying breed and a testament to his greatness that he managed to do what he's done with a weak wing like his BH.
