who is the best?
Who do you think is the best current tennis player?
Who do you think is the best all-time tennis player?
I'm using replies here as part of a school report. Thanks for any help.
My favourite player is Andre Agassi, he is just the most wonderful player and wonderful embassador for the game. You don't see him swearing and breaking rackets like Lleyton Hewitt.
Andre Agassi is the best on the hard courts, J C Ferrero on Clay, I think my Fav. Player right now is between James Blake and Andy Roddick. All time best player, although Sampras has 14 slams have to give cudos to Andre he has 8 with great chances to get more and he has all 4 slams under his belt.
Then in the womens game I have to go with Stephi Graph as the best ever sure miss her playing. Liked Martina Navratilova, Chris Evert and Gabriella Sabatina (for my favs.) Good luck on your paper
Current favorites-Seles & Roddick
Best ever-Evert, Navratilova & Graf ~ Laver & Sampras
Best players at the moment - so many to choose from.
Best Serve-Volley player in the world - Henman (when not injured)
Best all round player - Hewitt
Best Server - Roddick
Best of all time -
My favourites are Becker and McEnroe. Would probably have to put Borg in there for sheer technical brilliance. Ditto Sampras (although not a fan, I'm afraid!)
My faves at the moment are Clijsters and Henin. The Williams sisters esp. Serena (although again, not fond of their style of play or attitude) would have to be in their.
Of all time
Billie Jean King, Martina Navratalova and Steffi Graf. Seles would have been in their were it not for the terrible attack in Germany. Cut doen in her prime.
And just a minor point - Agassi has been known to swear on court - he has been defaulted twice for 'Audible Obsenities' - in 1996 and 1999. He was also given a warning for swearing only last week while playing Roddick at Queens - so not the total saint we may be led to believe!
My favorite player is Marat Safin, always
The best female player ever is Steffi Graf obviously!!!!
dani and justine rox
daniela hantuchova and justine henin-hardenne rawks!!!!
Currently the best women's tennis player HAS got to be Justine Henin, she has improved her play so immensely! She is also a very humble person. I hope she achieves a lot of success after her win at Roland Garros)
The best women's tennis player ever - Graf or Navratilova - I can't decide who of the two, they were both out of this world!
I think currently in the men's game no matter what Andre is still the best although this season (except for AusOpen) is not the most successful for him.
And all-round one could presume that he is the best player ever to pick a racket, together with Borg I suppose.
The best tennis player of all times ? I think LEW HOAD. He was the most complete of all. At his best he was ABSOLUTELY unbeatable, he had no weak points.
Definately Andy Roddick!! He's great! And Andre Agassi is a great player as well.
Best player all time... I would say John McEnroe. Love to watch his matches.. He really comes up for himself which is great. Roddick and McEnroe really make it more fun to watch a match.
Best female player is Kim Clijsters and Jennifer Capriati
Hey people, I'd really have to back up the supporters of Steffi Graf, and Naviratilova as all time best women players.
All times best men probably Sampras, McEnroe, Laver!
But I'd have to disagree on the point that Roddick is the current best....i didnt really think so, his performances are not very consistant, but improving rapidly. Current best by far is Roddick and Agassi...Lleyton is struggling....Phillipousis is once again on the rise! Aussie Aussie Aussie!
Current best women definelty the 4 powerhouses....Serena, Venus, Kim Clijsters and Henin Hardenne!
male player it would be federer.
all-time male would be agassi
female player would be justine henin-hardene and daniela hantuchova
all-time female would be seles
Favourite female players have to obviously be the Williams Sisters, they are trully GREAT!!!
