Guga!
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg

FOR ME AS LONG AS MARIA STAYS AT THE VERY TOP OF THE GAME I AM NOT REALLY TOO FUSED ABOUT ANYONE ELSE :uh:

BUT I SUPPOSE THERE ARE A COUPLE I WOULD LIKE TO SEE REMAIN IN THE TOP 10, GET BACK IN THE TOP 10 OR GET INTO THE TOP 10 FOR THE FIRST TIME.

TIM HENMAN- TO REMAIN IN THE TOP 10
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO- AFTER SEEING HIS PERFORMANCE AGAINST ROGER TONIGHT I AM SURE HE CAN GET BACK INTO MAYBE THE WORLDS TOP 5.
MARIA KIRILENKO- I WOULD LOVE TO SEE MARIA KIRILENKO GET INTO THE WORLDS TOP 10. SHE IS CERTAINLY IMPROVING ALL THE TIME.

Agassi is in tenth.  A win tomorrow would put him at ninth, I think.  A title in Dubai would get him the number 8 spot, which would be handy for IW.

Players I would like to see back in the top 10:
Ferrero (a very good clay season might sort that out)
Grosjean

Players I'd like to see in the top 10 (and who've not actually been there before):
Nadal
Baghdatis

Man, as much as I want to see Fed break Pete's slam record, the men's game keeps getting better and better.

I'd love to see JCF, Nalbandian, and Guga get back in the top ten.

In the women's, definitely Kim, Daniela, Monica, Maria Kirilenko and Jelena Dokic.

My votes would be for Guga and Monica---two of the nicest, most enjoyable players to watch in the last decade, IMO. They have totally different styles, but I really loved the flair they brought to the game. (Can't say I miss the noises they both made, but I would gladly put up with that to have them back).

Loved the grunt Guga made, esp when hitting that backhand.  
Many people wish they could grunt like Monica Seles.....but they can't.  Her grunt was a two syllable one whereas other women on the circuit made theirs one.  First noise is during her racquet preparation and the second one comes as she comes into contact with the ball.  haha

I loved Monica Seles even tho I didn't really start watching her until that last part of her career when she kinda fell off and became what Jcap was in 04' (a usual quarter/semifinalist). I really wish Monica could've gone out on a good note because she reminds me so much of Lindsay in that she seemed like such a genuinly good person. Always so kind and fun to be around -- I loved her.

Dunno if I'd wanna see her comeback tho -- might ruin her legacy to go out on 1st/2nd round losses as opposed to the semifinals she was making it to in 03 before she fell out.

Tho it'd proly never happen, I'd really like to see Martina Hingis come back. I used to hate her for the blatant prejudice she had when she made comments about the linesmen favoring Venus & serena just cuz they were black. I thot she was ignorant then and I still do now. But I like to watch her play tennis :) youdont have to be intelligent to hit a tennis ball, right? I think she would add a great curve to the game right now and it would be amazing to throw yet another wildcard into the draws.

I can't wait for women's tennis this year. With the Williams appearing like they might be coming back, Lindsay Davenport hungry for that last slam, the Russians out in full swing and the other dangerous players like Mauresmo & Schnyder....you just gotta love how unsure you can be about the draws now :)

TODD MARTIN

Yeah, I know he's retired, but I was the world's biggest Todd fan.  "Where have you gone Todd Martin, our nation turns its lonely eyes to you...woo woo woo. "

Gotta love Todd Martin.  He is the true American badass in men's tennis.

I take it back -- Lindsay Davenport isn't as nice as I thought she was. I saw her cussing like a mofo during the AO final -- somebody wash her mouth out w. suds.

Blah, who cares.  Lindsay is a nice person but in the heat of the moment, all players should be able to cuss themselves out during a match.  Heck I even noticed Michael Chang would curse in Mandarin Chinese.
