Coria is a really good player but I just don't like his attitude. Haas is more on my favoites list.
Be the change that you seek.

mine are all other...

I used to think Toddies Martin had the edge over Cedric Pioline, but then someone pointed out that Rios accumulated a number of MS titles. So I'd go with Rios.

I did not include Martin, Pioline, and Rios since I was only counting active players.    I guess in a recent players list all 3 of those would be great choices, and arguably better than any on this list.

I don't think Roscoe Tanner or Vitas Geuralitas ever won a major (too lazy to research this).  They wold be at the top of my list.

I voted for Haas but what about Nalbandian? He DEFINITELY deserves a slam, preferably a repeat of the Shanghai final. Now THAT was a match!

I should not have put Corretja in the poll since he is retired now.   Coria leading must be only because he should have won the French.

Nalbandian has a slam already. He won Wimbledon in...03' was it?

Anyway, I change my vote to Haas. Coria doesnt have what it takes to win on anything but clay. Even tho I think w. his game, he very well could be winning on any surface, he seems to always blow it. Haas has more champion in him, I think. And he's been #2 in the world before, what was the highest Coria ever made it to,exactly?

No.  He's reached one GS final (W'02) and reached a few semis.  Oddly enough, he's only won four titles his entire career.

Coria has been as high as #3 back in 04, maybe even #2?

Just to tell you Tim Henman will never win a grand slam...

he's justnot good enough.

And now there is mor baseliners like Nadal etc. It will be hard to serve and body.

There is not going to be anymore serve and volleyers.
