I am much too young to have witnessed most of the really great retired players Still,my favourites from the retired ones I remember to have watched:
Safin - my favourite back then for obvious reasons
Agassi
Moya
Coria
Roddick
Henman
The only thing I've seen of Becker was his exh match with our Prime minister
Also I've watched per youtube several matches of Sampras,McEnroe,Lendl,the first being my favourite.

Top 10 retired players . Goodness, didn't start following tennis till about 3 years ago. (Played it for 6)

1. Roddick
2. Googa, or Kuerten, my aunt always rooted for him, so kinda instilled in me to like him.

I'm aware of many other players, but sad to say I couldn't see them play. To hard to gouge who I like or don't.

Lneders: One thing people need to understand about this so-called weak era is that it was 'weak' for Federer on HC and grass and for Nadal on clay (Federer on clay too Nadal apart) because they were so much better than anyone else, for any outsider the era couldn't possibly be any harder, during 5+ years you had to either beat the best grass/HC player ever or the best clay player ever in every single Slam just to get 1 Slam title.

1) Pete Sampras, the one and only
2) Stefan Edberg didn't have the chance to watch him in his prime, but his swansong in '96 was absolutely great
3) Goran Ivanisevic loved that guy, had the greatest first and second shot combination I've ever seen ; his Wimbledn title in 2001 remains one of my greatest moment as a sport fan, along with the '99 France-New Zealand in rugby
4) Gustavo Kuerten the man who could make anybody love clay ; his run in RG97 is one of the most massive upsets in tennis history
5) Sebastien Grosjean my favorite French player, one of the best of his - exceptionally weak - generation. His play was very spectacular, with an incredible serve for his size, he really would have deserved a final at Wimbledon
6) Juan Carlos Ferrero his forehand was truly amazing. He definitely deserved more than one FO title, considering his dominance on clay in the early 00's.
7) Marat Safin The only guy who ever made me like two-handed backhand. Yes, this shot can be graceful.
8) Boris Becker not a big fan of "Boom-Boom", but in his later years his backhand was really great and he offered some great opposition to Pistol Pete on fast indoor courts
9) Magnus Larsson One of the greatest forehands of the nineties, for sure... also had some great matches against Pete
10) Alberto Berasategui only for one tournament, but what a tournament... he breeezed through the draw, crushing all his opponents en route to the FO final. His wicked top-spin forehand was just unstoppable... but he had zero backhand, and finally got routined by Bruguera in the final

1. Gustavo Kuerten - heck of a backhand, also Brazilian best player ever.
2. Andre Agassi - best serve returning of all time, along with Djoko.
3. Richard Krajicek - only player to beat Sampras in Wimbledon at his prime, and he did it in straight sets.
4. Fernando Meligeni - not great technique, no backhand and still semifinalist in Atlanta 96 and RG. A true warrior..
5. Mark Philippousis - should've won a GS.
