Re: The rise of your favorite players

Started having "faves" and around 01/02 when Linds was ranked 1-3 and now she's 25 I think.

Followed Ana since Zurich 04 (same as opening post) so 150 to 1.

Followed Marion since French Open 07 so 21-10 (most of that time inside top 10).

I only became a real fan of Lena last year, before that it was on & off. She was top 15 most of last year and is now top 5.

Re: The rise of your favorite players

Ivanovic

#156 (Oct. 2004) >> #1

I basically became a huge fan after her match with Venus in Zurich.


Dementieva

#25 (Sept. 2000) >> #5

Her SF run at the 2000 USO made me a fan.


V. Williams

#3 (August 1999) >> #7

I became a fan after her performance throughout the summer of 1999 (Wimbledon-USO Series-USO).


S. Williams

#6 (August 1999) >> #6

Her title runs at LA and Flushing Meadows made me a fan.

Same! That match was immense. Ana lost in straights but had SP's in both of them IIRC.

Maria Sharapova #4 (January 2005) current rank #2. I became a fan of hers after seeing her QTF match against Kuznetsova at the AO.
