    But again, they're boring. Okay, so they have some ridiculous comebacks sometimes - but - as of the US Open quarters against Kuznetsova in Wozniacki's case, it's on account of the opposition's facade crackling, not spectacular tennis.
    They're both a strange cross of baseline machine/counterpuncher/SuperPusher - and i detest it. Give me Murray, with his fiery temper, or Monfils, with his ludicrous antics (and ludicrous forehands)!

    What fiery temper?? Everything about Murray is boring. He hasn't done anything charismatic in his life

Even with his newfound superstar status he remains a gentleman whose sole joy is playing tennis and has no interest in the luxuries that come with fame and riches

    ok, to some extent you're right. Nadal rarely goes for his shots or initiates the first attack. he's more of a 'i can out last you' kind of player which can get monotonous.

    Murray has his oral agression.
    Federer has that too though, lol.

    I like:
    1. Justine Henin
    Seriously, she's like 5'6 and outhits 6'3 people (Sharapova)
    2. Caroline Wozniacki
    She's really hard working, but I think she's played too many tournaments in 09, which kind of hurt her performance after the US open.
    3. Sania Mirza
    Namely, just because she's indian, and she's a female, and she plays a proffesional sport other than cricket...
    4. sharapova,
    Just because for some reason I liked her when I started playing.

    Men:
    ...
    1. Andre Agassi
    His groundstrokes are really amazing.

    No one else really...

    Apparently you watch him too little to pass such judgement, seeing as the man regularly abuses himself and referees verbally. It's no coincedence he features along McEnroe in the commercial for Grand Slam Tennis! Although completely ungentlemanlike, i find it slightly amusing - he's like a little, frustrated child (i believe the german word for what i feel is Schadefreude), and i find it infinitely amusing. To me, tennis is more about viewing pleasure than role models - but if you asked me whose mental approach and general attitude to the game i would advise a child looking for a role model to emulate, i'd certainly pick Nadal or Federer any day.
    Which i guess, of course, makes me a despicable hypocrite :P
