Smile MTF 2014 Favourite Players Thread

Welcome to the 2014 MTF Favourite Players Thread

This year there won't be a seperate thread for active and retired players but please make sure that you post a Top 10 for your favourite active players and a Top 10 for your favourite retired ones.

Like always you have to name at least 5 players or votes won’t count.

It would be much appreciated if you would include reasons for your decisions but it’s not a requirement.

Of course you can only vote once for the same player.

Please make sure before you are going to vote if you have already mentioned your players before.

It's easy to check if you have already posted in a thread: Just click on "search this thread", advanced search and write down your name under "search by user name".


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


The Top 10 of the previous years were:

Active Players

1. Dimitrov - it's clearly the player I've been following the most last year.
2. Bellucci - he's a mug, but he's from my country and is a very nice guy.
3. Wawrinka - upgraded him to 3rd because of today's title.
4. Federer - downgraded to 4th cause I want him to retire and stop ruining legacy ASAP.
5. Bautista Agut - first time I saw him play vs. Delpo, really like it. Takes Nando's spot as my fav spaniard.
6. Del Potro - it's impossivel not to like the Gentle Giant.
7. Gulbis - downgraded him a bit, cause of some disappointing matches in Slams.
8. Berlocq - so much heart, what a fighter.
9. Janowicz - crazy Jerzy, tennis needs more guys like him.
10. Thiem - saw some matches, like his game a lot.

Retired - it's very difficult for me to do this, since I wasn't really a big follower of tennis in the 90's. But let's do it, a top 5, cause top 10 is too much, I would be forcing.

1. Kuerten - best brazilian player ever.
2. Krajicek - beat Sampras at Wimbledon, always like it Dutch players and teams (football, volleyball).
3. Rafter - best style of tennis I've ever saw.
4. Nalbandian - so sad he's gone without a slam.
5. Norman - not much of playing, more cause of coaching Soderling and Wawa.

Honorable mention --> Soderking, let's face it, he's retired.

9.Kubot - S&V for the win !
10.Dimitrov - BabyFed,enough said
