Well the quality of the posting here is truly a marvel to behold.

I would guess that a lot of people don't pay much attention to the ATP site and any number of online polls just as many people don't pay attention to this board with its petty griping and incessant complaining about most things in general and Nadal in particular.

People who casually follow tennis/watch a tennis match a year tend to like Nadal. He's someone where the more you know him, the less you like him (Up right til the second/third time I saw him play and the first full match, Nadal was a favorite of mine) He's not very liked at all among those who follow tennis closely- just look at this site

I believe the popular ranking just like the player ranking is not wrong BUT it's just mean that right now he is n4 I can change in the future


Fed fed fed how much I love you..

Lol you guys are so jelly. Murray is simply more likable. His emotions seems genuine and he's not always pulling MTO bullshit like Nole/Rafa.

Which still wouldn't explain why Nadal has the least number of votes in the four, unless you're attempting to suggest that Nadal fans are somehow less likely to vote.

Something to behold indeed.

Are you actually suggesting that Nadal is less popular worldwide than Murray and Djokovic?

I would find that quite hard to imagine. Facebook seems more reliable for such a popularity contest as opposed to an ATP site with a poll that I never even looked at though I check the ATP site regularly unlike most people who like tennis (who never even go to that site in the first place). Nadal wasn't playing the last 6 months and his fans are probably less likely to be all over the ATP site and looking to "vote" for him online but who knows really...


Nadal is hated much more on English language tennis boards than others for a variety of reasons which I am not interested in debating with the usual MTF board follower but such boards are hardly representative of the much, much larger world of people who would say they enjoy tennis.

You are correct, he is not very liked AT ALL!

Oh, I'm sorry, YOU WISH he was not very liked at all. It must be eating your poor hater's heart out
