Hi Eden, this is for you:
(Its hilarious Olderer should be topping this thread since 2006 - especially since he officially turned Declinerer in 2008! - I would be purely biased here even if he's no longer the greatest among active players, just enjoy him on a roll anyday!)
(lots of respect for the Sauron from Serbia - no one expected him to do what he did last year - he's the dark lord of tennis now!)
(forehand flamenco! Enjoyed him demolishing Nadal in 2009 USO. Did not enjoy the next match!)
(Hard working boy with big dreams in his eyes - also a terrific server - been a while since someone won tournies based on serve alone , not that he's bad ball-striker- better than Roddick any day)
(I know he's in my siggy and I should rank him higher but that bias I only hold for Wogie. My other favs don't perform no more. So let these two wonderful players decorate my siggy and there they will remain!
(Identical reasons and a general headcase)
(Very gifted player, beautiful ball-striker like Fed, great attitude to the game - hope to see him on main tour more often and win few tournies!)
(Long time since I saw a solid clay-court player among the young ones. Tomorrow's Almagro for me. Maybe more, but he'll be very dangerous on this surface in years to come, surely.)
9. Mardy Fish
(Very fluid player, interesting character, and most watchable American player for me)
(For putting Asia in the top hundred again. And a pretty solid defender for his size.)
Honorable mention: Verdasco: For taking his mentor out in Madrid.
