I always enjoyed watching Irina Spirlea. A very talented player who never quite made the jump, but lovely shots.
Sabatini was just beautiful to watch when she was at her peak. And the excitement of her second serve was fun too!!
Steffi - I REALLY wish there had been many many more Graf/Seles GS finals. They were always so fabulous. Graf on top form was just dazzling.
Chrissie - a real lady, but such an amazing competitor. I remember being really upset when she quit.
I miss her great smile, her wild but wonderful forehand, the huge highs and lows of her matches, the alternately glorious/awful tennis, her gorgeous accent, her goofy but somehow entirely cool walk...its never been the same without her!
Manchester City 2011 FA Cup winners! 2012 Premier League Champions! 2014 League Cup winners and Premier League Champions! At last!!!!!
Jeyaseelan, I loved her , view a few matches of her, she was so cute !

Mc Neil , I've only seen 3 games of her vs Conchita at Wimbly94 but I liked her a lot

Conchita MARTINEZ-Mary PIERCE-Lindsay DAVENPORT-Martina HINGIS-Serena WILLIAMS- and new legend Monica PUIG
Kata Srebotnik - Anabel Medina-Garrigues - Arantxa Parra-Santonja
Garbiñe Muguruza- Caroline Garcia- Polona Hercog- Kimiko DK - Eleni Daniilidou ...
I miss loads of players. Steffi for her grace and her forehand. She always looked so elegant when she played and was always gracious in victory and defeat.
Martina Hingis for her cockiness and perma-grin whether she was winning or losing, and her intelligence on court.
Jana for her gorgeous serve-volley game and the roller coaster rides that were her matches. I loved watching her play but could never relax until it was over.
Arantxa for her guts and fighting spirit.
Natasha, just for being Natasha.
