Default 2009: MTF Top 10 Favourite Players. Retired Players Only

This thread will be open to around 27th December and you are only allowed to include players that have retired.

So this means any player who is retired can be voted. If voters want to give reasons, then that's cool, if not, then they don't have to.

Here is how the points will be distributed.

#1 = 10
#2 = 9
#3 = 8
#4 = 7
#5 = 6
#6 = 5
#7= 4
#8= 3
#9 = 2
#10= 1

Voting for the same player 10x will only count as 1 vote. Also at least 5 players should be named or it won't be counted.
If you can't separate certain players. Example if they are 1st both will get 10 points and the next one will get 8 points.

As last year the categories were combined to include all favourites, this time I decided to split them into active and non-active players.

Agassi or Rafter should probably win this.
