Gay guys: who are your favorite players?

It seems like all my gay friends and I really like the Williams Sisters. I guess that's consistent with gay guys really supporting strong, diva types.

How about yall?

I am GAY and i am NOT a williams fan at all....My fave is Jen Cap for her great comeback wins in 2001 and 2002 from being almost relegated to qualifying for tournaments. Steffi Graf is my all time fav....current favs include clijsters, demientieva, and davenport

This gay man can't stand the Williams sisters, i guess they just rub me up the wrong way... My favourites are Henin-Hardenne, Mauresmo, Maleeva, Benesova & Daniilidou. In the past Navratilova, Edberg and Noah !!!

Williams X2, period. I don't consistently root for anyone else. If one of the my girls loses early I root for the other and if they both go out I usually force myself to watch the rest of the tournament. They're the single reason I started watching tennis (well, women's tennis) and the reason I continue to watch. If I didn't consider Sharapova their main rival I might be a fan of hers...but her shrieking does get on my nerves a bit. I know the sisters grunt too but it's not as high pitched and torturous to me.

As for the boys, SAFIN (obviously) FERRERO (who i've met) and Federer b/c he's just amazing.

Serena: Queen of the odd in OZ.

Venus: Please follow suit and win Wimbledon again.

Very few gay boys like the Williams sisters, I think because gay men are shallow in general and find the sisters' extra testosterone more, say, amusing and ridiculous than praiseworthy.

I guess it depends on who you are.

All my gay friends love
them.

They love Serena's diva like
persona and her outrageous outfits!

The catsuit especially, and
last years attire at the US Open.

And Venus' supermodel body.

deja, that had to be the most ridiculous thing you've said.

Way to Stereo-type AND discredit two amazing tennis players at the same time.

BTW, that whole debate over who's greater HINGIS or VENUS? I think it's been settled.

Serena: Queen of the odd in OZ.

Venus: Please follow suit and win Wimbledon again.

gay male here, and I check out this website daily...I too am not a Williams Fan. I support the "underdogs" ( maybe since gays are underdogs in our straight world )

I Love Jill Craybas, Mashona Washington, Melien Tu, Chanda Rubin, Mary Pierce, Maggie Maleeva, Amy Frazier, Maureen Drake and Na Li to name a few.

but if I had to pick....I'd say Venus over Serena. Too much drama with those girls..

Wish me luck in Fantasy Whirlpool Tennis...:0
