Love Novak. Federer and Nadal's rivalry paired with their close friendship has captured the hearts of fans and media, leaving Novak out as the kind of anti-hero among the Big Three. (Novak has some character flaws to be sure, which also contribute.) Novak's game is also far less flashy than Federer's and Nadal's - they have style and grace and a very artistic aesthetic to their games. Novak's game is far more understated and less "beautiful" - but boy is it effective.

Most weeks in history at #1 - what an accomplishment. He's only a year younger than Nadal but is still a scary, monstrous force in tennis, while Nadal's play is clearly diminishing from its height. I think Novak ends up with the most Grand Slams as well - he certainly deserves it.
