You obviously have no clue what tennis has been like. You completely ignored the older generations of players who I'm sure attracted more ppl into the game then the current crop of young players.

The question is ok, but this shouldn´t be a poll.

I wouldn´t say any particular player made me interested in tennis in the first place.

In the beginning of 90ies I enjoyed watching Graf, Agassi and Stich. When Pierce won the Ausopen in 95 (if I remember correctly) I perhaps started following tennis a little more frequently.

Nowadays i really enjoy watching lots of players but if I have to name someone, I would say Federer and Sharapova. Federers arsenal of shots is just unbelieveble and he makes it look so easy thanks to his great movement. Sharapova is true fighter and I always have been a fan of players with fighting spirit.

I started following tennis when Dominique Monami and Sabine Appelmans were playing their best. But I became really interested once Kim made her famous run at Roland Garros, so I voted Kim!

Actually Steffi Graf made me like watching tennis on TV in the first place.

But Masha S made me know about this WTAworld.com board and interested in travelling to see tennis matches at tournaments.

these players are a bit young... for me it was Hingis and Graf... (heninhardenne too, but she was just a young girlk who won roland garros junior at that time...)

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

But I really started following the WTA tour when Kim reached the 4th round at Wimbledon 1999

I was interested in tennis already when Masha was a little kid. Have only known about Masha for about a year and a half.

I could have voted for Graf or Pierce.

>_> it was Harkleroad vs Hantuchova, FO 2003. I was going for Harkleroad... so I guess Pebbles got me into it then!

Why is it that the world never remembered the name of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern-
