Yes. 2 or 3 months ago, I heard/saw FOX Sports News in Australia quote Federer as saying that Svetlana Kuznetsova is his favorite WTA player.

Or was in Eurosport News? I definately heard a news story by one of these channels who mentioned it...

He might only have watched her Miami 2006 run, which I think was her best tennis by far..

Simona Halep
Juan Martin Del Potro

Yep, and why shouldn't he appreciate it? He's a fan of Justine too - and she obviously has the more aesthetically pleasing game - but Svetlana's power game, when it's on fire, is breathtaking to watch. And she can hit mean volleys too, which Fed appreciates being more of a net man now himself. And correct me if I'm wrong but I think the appreciation is mutual: hasn't Sveta complimented Roger in the past?

I like watching Sveta when she's on her game. But when she's nervous, like yesterday, she hits too many UEs and then plays too tentatively. She still hit a few impressive winners though.

It's a bit like Serena or Sharapova's games, not that they're similar just that when on they are amazing to watch, when off they're REALLY messy.

I really don't think Fed likes people comparing Justine's game to his. When the interviewer's try to throw in a Henin reference he usually says Kuzzy or somebody else is his favorite female player.

Federer changes his mind with who's winning. First it was Justine, then Kuzzie, then Serena...

Venus: US Open Champ (2000, 2001) Wimbledon Champ (2000, 2001, 2005, 2007)

I like her rotation on her forehand. Her follow-through is beautiful, but the one thing I hate about her game is how she always hits the ball into the net. At least with Dementieva, we know she's going to consistently get the ball over the net, but Sveta buries too many balls into the net. I think it's mainly because she's catches the ball way too late.

Dementieva

Yes, I remember he said at the FO Sveta is his favorite for the title.
I like her game as well, she's very talented, much more analytic than she used to be. she has a lot of weaposn, and she's still very young. I also think she's more comfortable on a slow surface, like the ones in AO and clay of course.

Merci Justine!


Agnieszka Radwanska - Beautifull style, tons of talent and variety, and the cutest smile on tour.

Don't speak to me, tell the TV stations because I know what I heard! They were not talking about gambling or predictions.

It is hard to believe the media though, probably FOX Sports because they are always creating stupid propaganda.

Hmmm...maybe it wasn't her "tennis" he likes to watch?? Maybe her milkshake?
