I am a huge tennis fan and have been since I was a child. I love to watch the sport whoever is playing - but obviously everyone has their own favourite players. Perhaps you love Federer because he is such a "complete" player, or maybe Nadal because of his fighting spirit and attitude, - or maybe James Blake because you think he's hot! So who is your favourite tennis and why?

I think Pete Sampras has been playing some exhibitions in the States but I don't think he will come back full-time. He's too happy with his wife and children and playing golf! And I like Martina Hingis too. Thanks for your response.

For us Belgians at he moment we've got luxury problems in women tennis. It is hard to choose between Kim Clijsters who is quitting after this season and surely is the most amical one, and one the other hand there's Justin Henin (Hardenne has left the building). She is the most driven of the two, but I think she's got a media problem : mostly she's liked for her talent, but she's not as "sympa" as Kim. Male tennis is not a Belgian issue for the moment, although I like to watch Xavier Malisse at times, when he's into it.

Well you also have the Rochus Brothers - they both do very well, especially Olivier. Imagine how much better he would do if he was a little taller and had a longer reach and a bigger serve? I am a big fan of Clijsters myself - I think she is a lovely person and I am sorry she is retiring though I understand her reasons. Thanks for posting..

sania mirza is my favourite tennis player.Sania is the current youth icon in India. Coming from Hyderabad, this teenager is creating history in Indian tennis by becoming the first ever Indian to break into the top-50 WTA rankings. Still not out of her teens, Sania Mirza has got a huge fan following, both inside and outside the country. i heard Sania's ambition is to one day become one among the top-20 in the world.may god help her to full fill her ambition.At the rate in which she is going currently, that day is not far off. best of luck sania....you are amazing

my favorite tennis player is justine-henin-hardenne. i think she is just playing top tennis at the moment though she is not playing in the australian open,her total game is very good and her back hand strokes are absolute perfect. last year she won her favorite french open and reach to all other three grand slam finals. she plays tennis in right attitude and in just short period she have made her impact on the game.

Justine is an excellent player - especially considering how small she is compared with the other women players. Sadly she missed the Australian Open because she and her husband have just separated and she had some personal issues to deal with - but I am sure she will be back soon. Thanks for posting.

I like Nadal because he is from my country and he is a very talented player. He fights every point until the end and still he can improve his tennis in the near future because he is young.

Hola! Nadal is indeed a fighter. I watched his match yesterday against Andy Murray (who is from my country!) - it was a close and excellent match. Thanks for taking the time to reply in this thread.

roger federer is my best tennis player and this is coz he plays so well that no one is able to win with him. he has emerged as a winner in every match and this has projected him to the 1st position forever. i like winning and he is the winning player currently so i like his play and his winning attitude.
