Yes, I have a love/hate relationship with X. Malisse. He's so talented but... you know, he's just Malisse...

But when he plays with Olivier in doubles, he seems a completely different player. Also in Davis Cup.

I dislike Elena Dementieva. A lot. But if she were to play Fed Cup, I would root for her. But then again, I am not Russian by birth, so if you mean are there any Americans I dislike, that's a whole different story...

I have no business disliking my country men when there is a host of others to hate, (just kidding) but I will admit Hewitt does push the boundaries for me.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

I don't hate them. I get bored with them. I'm mainly thinking about Wayne Arthurs and Mark Philippoussis here. I don't see the big deal about Arthurs apart from his serve. He's well over 30 and not likely to get any better than he is. What's all the fuss about? Philippoussis doesn't like his fans or the media to discuss him, so that's that. He's just a train wreck - "move along, nothing to see here." I don't feel bored by or dislike any of the Aussie female players. They are generally good-natured and spunky, young women. Even that never-aging dynamo, Nicole Pratt. However, if we're going all the way back to Margaret Court, well, let's not go there and just say that as a tennis champion she was a great one and noteworthy of little else aside from that.

"There are more dogs than women in the locker rooms" - Liz Smylie
"I'm really feeling my balls" - Serena Williams
"She had him in her box... It made his week!" - Tracy Austin
"Tell us Rafa, what else do you do with your right hand?" - Todd Woodbridge
"I have a pain here, in my famous ass" - Rafael Nadal

NO, I like Luxembourg's three players Claudine Schaul, Anne Kremer and Mandy Minella.
