Who's Your Backup Favorite?

Who do you root for when your favorite is out of the tourney or injured? For me its Lindsay Davenport and Mary Pierce, i admire how they defy the age boundaries of "peeking and prime" at young ages. So who's yours?

Walk on with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone

Martina is my favorite but I am really rooting for Venus and Serena to return and play well...also Mauresmo/Pierce/Clijsters/Davenport, P (who says you can't be a Hingis AND Williams fan!)

Yeah, I hope Mary and Lindsay each will win at least one more slams!!
Ai had a terrable start to the year..but she is back on track now, good performance in doha!!

It's a pity Na Li quitted Tennis at her prime age for two years...
Hope and believe she can break into another level soon!

Nadia Petrova, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Vera Zvonareva, Patty Schnyder.

Björk
Imperious in victory. Never conceiving the possibility of defeat. The greatest of her era. The self-belief, that smile, backhand, muscles, serve, personality, all larger than life. There's no greater sight in women's tennis than watching Serena J. Williams go to work.
The others are Great, but Serena's the Greatest
