I miss the days when...

complete the sentence.

Here's my list.

I miss the days when...

...Venus was winning majors, not playing far below her level in the finals

....Capriati was mentally strong enough to close out three sets matches

....Hingis was playing, and making the tour that much more exicting

....every major played, there was about 6-7 players with a realistic chance to win

....fans didn't feel like the 'best' player in the world had to cheat to get where she is

certain fans didn't feel the need to invalidate other players wonderful accomplishments due to their current #1 status/ rankings and the rankings freefall their own personal favs have experienced

I miss the days when there was more depth on the tour, when there was so much greater variety in the players' play styles. I certainly enjoyed the game more those days: Gaby, Kimiko, Steffi, Arantxa, Mary Joe, Anke, Jana, Monica, Natasha, there were all there. I used to have so many players to cheer for but nowadays, there are so many "boring" and not-worth-supporting players. Plus I hate it when ppl underappreciate players from the older generations.

I miss the days when someone won a slam it was a great acomplishment and not tried to be taken away from them by jealous fans.

Myskina * Henin-Hardenne * Zvonerava

Davenport - Dementieva

This is soooo true. I didn't think it would be this bad; but I
think in terms of paranoia, jealousy, accusations, bitterness
and down right hostility with a lot of ugly trash talking mixed
in with no respect- it's the worst ever. I'm not surprised
that nobody plays doubles much, anymore- it's just ego
driven now.

I miss the days when fans didn't talk out the side of the neck or both sides of their mouth.

Those years were the greatest !!!
And I would include 94/95

I miss the days when I liked the top players (Conchi, Steffi, Mary, Martina H, Lindsay, Mary Joe, Kimiko, Anke) which is not the case right now...

CONCHITA-LINDSAY-MARY-HINGIS

KATA - AMG -
APS

Serena- Garcia- Hercog- KDK- Daniilidou- Puig- Muguruza...
