Which Legend did Fellow Players Look Up To?

Just out of curiosity...see how it tallies up

I know Radwanska looked up to Hingis...as did Laura Robson (New Wimby Girls Champion )

I know Justine looked up to Steffi...Kim did as well I think.

Venus and Serena looked up to Monica?

I don't know who else

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!

Re: Which Legend did Fellow Players Look Up To?

A lot of players looked up to Seles, like Ana.
I don't think Venus and Serena looked up to Monica though, i could be wrong.

Maria looked up to no one (I think)... She didn't want to be anyone but herself.

I believe Marion looked up to Monica, or was it her father who did?

Re: Which Legend did Fellow Players Look Up To?

Venus and Serena did look up to Seles, much moreso Serena though.

They both looked up to Sampras too, again moreso Serena I think.

Venus Williams
Serena Williams

Re: Which Legend did Fellow Players Look Up To?

I think Maria looked up to Sampras. Didn't she study his serve to help improve her own?

Re: Which Legend did Fellow Players Look Up To?

Serena and Venus did look up to Monica.

Haven't I heard Richard showing them tapes of Monica when they were younger?

And didn't I hear that Venus started grunting because Monica grunted?

They have also said, Serena anyway that Seles was her favorite player while growing up.

SERENA 21 GRAND SLAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Which Legend did Fellow Players Look Up To?

Caroline Wozniacki looks up to Venus
Although she would deny it, but Pova secretly looks up to Serena and wants to be just like her

Re: Which Legend did Fellow Players Look Up To?

Venus, Serena, Ana and Jelena all looked up to Monica. Hingis as a 12 year old got an autograph from Monica - one of her highlights, she said.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.
