Which player(s) have you seen the most in real life?

After yesterday, I've seen Michaella Krajicek and Kim Clijsters three times.

I've seen Krajicek playing at Antwerp this year (doubles SF) and last year at Hasselt (doubles F) and yesterday also at Hasselt (singles SF).

The three times I saw Clijsters play were each time at Hasselt: QF in 2004, F in 2005 and SF in 2006.

I guess everyone has a player who they see frequently when they go a tournament, no?

I know I've been a liar
And I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break it
But I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now
Yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes
Still all I see is you

Re: Which player(s) have you seen the most in real life?

Justine Henin-Hardenne and Amelie Mauresmo. A grand total of 4 times (Justine - against Myskina, Capriati, Seles, and Bondarenko or was it Doushevina?) I'm not even a Justine fan or anything, but everytime I go to Dubai, she wins the tournament so I end up seeing her the most. I've seen Amelie against Krasnoroutskaya, Nagyova, Seles, and Kuznetsova. The Henin-Seles and Henin-Capriati matches were classics.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

Venus and Serena...more times than I can count. I have visited their home several times and Venus decorated one of my best friend's home who recently moved to West Palm Springs. As a matter of fact I put Venus in contact with my friend and her husband when they were almost finish building their home. Vee did a fantastic job with their home.

Re: Which player(s) have you seen the most in real life?

The player I've seen most is Sophie Ferguson. I saw a bit of her win over someone at the Australian open 2005. I've seen her at two challenger tournaments and I saw her get squashed by Petrova at this years Oz open.

Others I've seen more than once live (all at Oz open).

ElenaL: Saw her play someone in 2004 and her 2 singles matches this year.

Kraijeck: Saw her great round 2 match v Patty in 2005 and the round 2 vs Mirza this year.

Camille Pin: Witnessed her being destroyed by Serena in 2005 and her win vs Diaz-Olivia this year.

Diaz-Olivia: Saw her beat Dulko in a "derby" match in 2005 and the above one vs Pin this year.

VeraD: Saw her beat VeraZ in 2005 and a bit vs Castano this year.

Lauren Breadmore: Saw her play Kuznetsova at this year's oz and at a challenger last year.

Sharapova: Saw her play a doubles match with Tanasurgan in 2004(!), plus her match vs Lindsay Lee-Waters in 2005.

I also saw Barbara Schett vs Santalego in 2004 and her last 2 matches vs Tiffany Welford and Hantuchova in 2005.

Top 10: Ashleigh Barty, Caroline Garcia, Jamie Hampton, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Lucie Safarova, Maria Sharapova, Karolina Sprem, Sam Stosur, Jarmila Wolfe.

All time favourite: Anna Chakvetadze
