Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, David Ferrer, and Andy Murray—not ranked in that order—make for something of a motley crew at the apex of men's tennis. The question is, what exactly do they know of each other? You can find out from this footage who truly makes a point of commiserating with his colleagues—at public events, if not in the locker room—and who basically draws blanks when pressed about his peers:

Murray persistently provides the best fodder for the clip. Here are his trademark quips:

As far as which doesn't like ham, cheese, or tomato, this is quite telling: "I just don't think Roger would be that picky, and Rafa's quite picky."

Asked which star received a cow after winning his first Grand Slam singles tournament: "I think they do that in Switzerland quite a lot, I think a few people have been given cows there."

On the subject of which Top 5 star saves every tome he reads: "I mean, just process of elimination there. I didn't know that Roger and Rafa read books."

That's yet another deft backhand from Murray. Now, who do you tap to win the Indian Wells ATP event? Whose personality and disposition do you most admire?
