2013 Nationally Ranked Players Unscientific Survey

February 19, 2013

SurveyIn this entirely unscientific, just-for-fun, small-sample survey, we sent out a questionnaire to our top nationally ranked players - 50 women and 50 men - to see who ranked and who was blanked. There were a few more categories, like best trash-talker, best dresser, funniest, and favorite city to play in, which didn’t make the final cut. There may be a few own-votes in here, but that is half of the entertainment value. Read it and weep, or use it to your advantage next time you face these players on the court.
