Like this is a serious question.

Whoever the more likeable and media friendly individual is.

not bad at all, he has 2 slams, Roddick is more poor, he was runner up in Wmby for the third time while Rafter just two times, actually Rafter could try to play wimby again, he was not that old, but he gave up after 2001 :sad:

the real poor Aussie is Mark P though :sad:

certainly, Mark Poo ends up with nothing [USO & Wimby finalist:sad:]--- and now he`s bankrupt and about to lose the home he bought for his mum:sad:

I heart Pat and would prefer he was remembered but I think Hewitt will be the more infamous.....infamy is more exciting than nice.
Poor old Poo. He will be remembered for that heinous cougar vs kittens show.

Rafter. He is a nice guy whereas Hewitt is a brash jerk.

I think Rafter will be remembered for his wonderful personality, good looks, the 'Sorry mate' and those 2 x heartbreaking Wimbledon finals, but Hewitt will be remembered more for his gutsy play and a great couple of years which netted the USO, Wimbledon, 2 x Season Ending Masters Cups as well as 80 weeks at #1. So I guess both will have enduring memories one way or the other.

Both will be remembered, but I('ll) miss Rafter infinitely more.

Rafter will receive 100% of the ladies vote and will surely carry the S&V lovers' vote.

No way Hewitt can win this.

Both will be remembered. :shrug: I personally prefer Rafter more for both his game and personality.

Hewitt. He may be a jerk, but he is more identifiable I think.

Aside from his two US Open wins, Rafter's grand slam record is pretty pathetic. I think he only got past the 4th round 6 or 7 times.

Years from now, tennis buffs will remember them just as background figures in their eras, like Vitas Gerulaitis or Ilie Nastase. Non-tennis buffs won't remember either of them.
