I think tennis is getting boring for me. No surprises anymore. No new faces who is consistent. So many smooth, nice speaking guys there. Federer obviously hiding under a facade and always wanting to be nice. Djokovic trying desperately to be liked, hugging everybody and really for me its too much overdone. Nadal always saying he wants to improve. After the 90s this new attitude was welcomed but now its too monotonous. There's no nasty guy out there !! I really want to see a Mohamed Ali type of player who talks trash and is really good !! I'm really surprised how you guys here keep your passion all this long...

Med, I get your point, but you will not see 'tennis Ali' any times soon ... I suggest you start cheering for Tomic the GOAT ... it's too bad he is not intelligent enough to be a bad boy, but hey you could try and you never know  :)~

I guess we're looking for different things. I don't need nasty guy personalities. Always rooted against them and didn't miss them when they retired.

For me personally, the last decade has been the best one. And I've followed tennis since 1980.

I agree some new names should start doing more, though. It's not good to have Del Potro as the youngest candidate to achieve anything when he's 24 now.

Swish:
I'm hoping Del Potro moves into the #4 spot before long.
He has tournaments lined up for weeks so has a chance for plenty of points.
