This is not a bashing thread! I just want a name...

For me, it's Serena Williams.. I have no problem cheering for Venus but there is something about Serena that makes me cheer against her...

I feel the same, I think Serena is great but I always root against her because all of her opponents are like underdogs, it gives me great thrills when she loses. I know it's mean but it's true for me, but I think she is so funny and lovely as person.

Martina Hingis 4ever!!!

Now and forever, I'll remember.

Justine Henin Hardenne. I liked her when she came in quebec city many years ago, her talent was easy to see, but I just can't cheer for her. Same with Jennifer

Amelie and Elena D.

Venus might as well get her mail forwarded to Serena's shadow. She's going to be there forever!

Henin-Hardenne... she was so polite in person but from other things I hear it makes me wonder?

Maria Sharapova. I don't have an issue with her game. I think she's a pretty good tennis player. I just had a feeling during the AO match when Sharapova played Serena. It was the first time I actually got nervous for Serena. That was when I knew I couldn't root for Maria.

For me, it's Maria Sharapova. After she won Wimbledon, I tried to cheer for her in other events but that screaming got to me Now I can't stand to watch her play at all

Some people are just putting down players they don't like.

Unless it's one of my absolute favorites (Myskina, Dementieva, Clijsters, Molik) then I usually cheer for the underdog. That doesn't neccessarily mean who is ranked lower, as I'd consider Petrova an underdog to Serena anyday.

Riding the 3AM Rollercoaster!! Players I support, no matter what
Anastasia Myskina, Kim Clijsters, Alicia Molik, Elena Dementieva, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Tatiana Golovin, Ai Sugiyama
Juan Carlos Ferrero, Lleyton Hewitt, Tommy Robredo, Rafael Nadal, Gaston Gaudio, Nikolay Davydenko, Richard Gasquet, Jarkko Nieminen, Mario Ancic, Mikhail Youznhy, Novak Djokovic, Marin Cilic, Andy Murray, Evgeny Korolev, Paul-Henri Mathieu, Dmitry Tursunov, Stanislas Wawrinka

JHH: I was a big fan of hers in 2003, but I just don't care for her anymore.

Sharapova, Henin-Hardenne, Capriati, and Hingis. Sharapova I just don't like for whatever reason, but the other three I think have horrible horrible attitudes.

RIDE OR DIE! Down for Venus Williams

Elena D. b/c of her serve... It makes me really mad when I watch her play & she is having a terrible serving day. I like the rest of her game, but that serve just drives me crazy.
