It's time for the first Top Twenty count of the new year. The purpose of this post is to let you know which twenty player sin the brieflines archive have the most pic. Its fun to see the ebb and flow through time, as players get better the amount of photos go up. So it kind of parallels the trajectory of a player's career (if they wear briefs, of course).
This month, Tommy Robredo took back the lead as the current leader of the list. Here's the whole thing (number of pics in parentheses):
01. Tommy Robredo (738) 02. Richard Gasquet (716) 03. Roger Federer (510) 04. Rafael Nadal (461) 05. Fernando Verdasco (390) 06. David Ferrer (335) 07. Novak Djokovic (314) 08. Feliciano Lopez (263) 09. Juan Carlos Ferrero (250) 10. Jo Wilfried Tsonga (245) 11. Stansilas Wawrinka (160) 12. Marin Cilic (158) 13. Radek Stepanek (137) 14. Mikhail Youzhny (133) 15. Andy Roddick (125) 16. Paul Henri Mathieu (122) 17. Marat Safin (110) 18. Nicolas Almagro (106) 19. Lleyton Hewitt (105) 20. Grigor Dimitrov (102)
In case you were wondering, I know I have a severe bias for Tommy Robredo, my favorite player, but he's by far not the briefiest of all time. That distinction goes to Richard Gasquet, who has topped this list 45 times, more than double the other two leaders (Novak Djokovic [20 times] and Tommy Robredo [19 times]).
Here's a quick little chart for you:
Total # of photos: 10,119
