I'm looking for a new player to support!

With it looking likely that Lindasy Davenport will retire in the near future, I'm gonna have to fill the gap left by her departure. She's one of my top 4 favourite girls (along with Sharapova, Molik and Kirilenko). I've compiled a shortlist of girls I think would be good to start supporting to fill Lindsay's gap. Not all of them are up-and-comers. They are:

Vera Zvonareva: Talented young Russian, doing good things on the American Hardcourts this year.

Nicole Vaidisova: Really caught my eye during her second set against JHH. She was playing very well, but the only problem was the the woman on the other side of the net was the world #1. My top pick ATM.

Samantha Stosur: Would seem like an obvious chioce, being an Aussie. But I'm always going to follow all the Aussie girl's progress with interest anyway.

Tatiana Golovin: Fiesty Frenchwoman who has rocketed up 300+ rank postitons in the past year! Also has made the R16 in two of three GS's this year.

Kim Clijsters: Already established talented player. The main reason for me to support her would be that she's with Lleyton Hewitt, my favourite male tennis player.

Other: Obviously there will be a million others that I am not aware of! Please tell me about them!

Your favourite player is heart affair not poll or something.

Some player attracts so cheer for them but this way of choicing a favourite player is, hmmm, more than "strange".

Find yourself a tourney or challenger, enjoy it "live" and maybe you'll find yourself someone new

How did I know you might say that?

She seems nice enough. But I'm still raw after her beating Molik

probably really disappointed...

the whole australian tennis community expected her to get to at least the R16 with no problems... it was probably the weight of that expectation that brought her game down anyway.

Others. Why not Anna Chakvetadze she's a hard hitter fast court specialist. Goes for her shots.

Just checking her out... the only problem I have with her is the same one I have with supporting Vera - I already support two Russians!

Yeah... if she gets back on top of her health and her game, she can push her way back up.

...any Lleyton... he's a real contender this year!
