One of my favorite pastimes is watching and playing tennis. I always preferred Nadal to Federer, since Nadal has unlimited energy, whereas Federer, despite his amazing technique, is unwilling to play Nadal's brand of tennis when they meet, which has prevented him from stepping up and beating, or at least extending to 5 sets, Nadal at Roland Garros. Nadal's ability to defeat tough opponents, which he has displayed in his rivalry with Djokovic, who completely dominated him in 2011, is also very impressive. I read that Federer sleeps 11 hours at night. Since Nadal is energetic, my conjecture is that he sleeps at most 5 hours at night. Interestingly enough, I also remember Federer admitting that he enjoys WWF (or someone claiming that Federer watches it). Also Billy Corgan watches WWF (now WWE).
I also like Gilles Simon, as he has managed to defeat top players despite not possessing many weapons in his arsenal. He is simply very quick and consistent, and can inject pace very well, and yet it seems at times that players should easily pummel him, and yet he has scored victories over the best players including Nadal, Federer and Djokovic and he has also reached number 6 in the world.
