Who is your tennis idol's IDOL?

I know Hingis wasnt just named Martina for nothing, she adored her.

Ana and Jelena idolized Seles as kids and i still think up to now.

Federer looked up to Marcelo Rios.

Sharapova, never allowed herself to idolize someone else.

Re: Who is your tennis idol's IDOL?

I heard Sharapova liked to watch Sampras-Agassi matches.
Kuznetsova said in USO 2004 she liked to watch Hewitt. She also had a poster of Kafelnikov and Rios when she was a kid. Now she's adoring Federer.

I'm so proud of you!!

Dementieva's idol is her mother. Oh, and Hingis.

Re: Who is your tennis idol's IDOL?

Patty said that she tried to model her game after Marcelo Rios and admired him. I can see the similarities in their games (and tempermants, honestly).

2016 Title(s):

For some reason, a lot of good players love Marcelo Rios' game even though he kinda sucked as a person.

Re: Who is your tennis idol's IDOL?

Both Radwanska and Laura Robson have said they looked up to Hingis (Laura actually trained with Hingis in Switzerland )

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!


Sorana Cirstea - Stefanie Voegele - Michelle Larcher de Brito - Alexandra Dulgheru



Martina I will miss you!!

Umm I think it was more of Martina's mom adoring Navratilova than Hingis herself

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!
