Well, I'm a Brit, so...

Andy Murray
Laura Robson

Though my all-time favourite will always be McEnroe - (I really like his commentary too).

Monica Seles - Before she was stabbed in Germany. When she never wore a bra and barked with every stroke.

Bjorn Borg - The dude was like a machine, Amazing.

Sampras! . . . Henin. As a backup to Henin, I liked Hingis. Back before "big babe tennis" she would work the opponent like a toy.

I definitely mourn the death of the one handed backhand in the modern game.

Jimmy Connors. More than enough mouth for McEnroe and more than enough game for Borg, Lendl, Nastase, etc.

I'm pretty young, so I didn't start watching professional tennis much until a few years ago, but my favorite has to be Roddick. It's not just because he's the best American man or anything, I just love his press conferences. The contrast between him being a smartass all the time, and Federer being the perfect gentleman has been great. I just wish Roddick was still competitive with Federer so I could watch more press conferences :P

As for women's tennis, my favorite right now is Schiavone.

I really like Andre Agassi. I also think Federer is one class act of a tennis player as well.

My dad was an active tennis player until his fifties so we watched quite a few games on cable TV from 1993 onward. He switched to golf as he got older so I watched tennis less frequently by the mid-2000s.

My favorites?
For the women, Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario and Martina Hingis.
For the men, Pete Sampras, Michael Chang and Rafael Nadal.

By the way great to see the eastern Europeans doing well. Novak Djokovic of Serbia is #1, and Czech lady Petra Kvitova is Wimbledon champion :)

i play tennis quite a bit and i really got into the game in the early 80's so my best players are Bjon Borg, J.P Mcenroe and Jimmy Connors probably in that order. :D

Borg, John 'You can't be serious?' McEnroe, Chang in no specific order.

I play tennis weekly with a club and routinely shout out John's infamous rant at least once a game, just to get a laugh out of the other players. :D
