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.

I don't remember Gumy, what was he like?
The Gumy Bear was a bit of hothead, who was known for smashing rackets all the over the place, which pissed his managers off.
He had a nice one handed backhand and was a superb and fierce fighter. He was always in great shape and was known for his strength and conditioning. He was very popular with the ladies.
Matches that stick out include his marathon 5 set defeat to Corretja in the 3rd round at RG in 1998, which carried over into a 2nd day after play was suspended, his 6-4 7-5 victory over Rios in the 1996 Santiago final, and his demolition of RG champion Guga at Kitzbuhel in 1997.
