Your Fave Lost... Who are You Rooting for Now?

Sucks when your fave loses early in a slam . For me, I'm used to just finding other players to root for since my faves suck or are retired(Venus, Davenport, Kim)

So for all you Venus, Mauresmo, Dokic, Chakvetadze, Vaidisova, Hantuchova fans and others, who are you rooting for now?

I'm rooting for Serena, Safina and Kuznetsova. Serena will always give us goodmatches and she used to be one of my faves. I want Safina to finally win a slam..and Kuzy.. well she's been one of my favorites since 2003/2004 but it's been so depressing being a fan of hers, I can't follow both her and Venus at the same time, it'd be too much

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Re: Your Fave Lost... Who are You Rooting for Now?

My faves haven't lose yet but one of them will very soon so hopefully the other will go all the way (Ana or Vika). Marion already lost so Elena is hope to make it through in the bottom half. Should none of these players progress I'll root for Domi to do some damage but of all the remaining contenders, Serena is the only one I'd be happy to see win it.

Serena for sure. I think she might even have more motivation now to win.

In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the SILENCE OF OUR FRIENDS. MLK

Definitely Aravane, after that performance today I'll be her fan for life! And Na. Either one or both.

Re: Your Fave Lost... Who are You Rooting for Now?

I still have: Ivanovic, S.Williams, Szavay, Jankovic, Safina, A.Radwanska, and Cibulkova.

Hell, I even might be coming back around to liking Sharapova again. Never thought that would happen in a million years.

I'll be happy with whoever wins as long as it's not you know who. (Or Azarenka, she's just a hot petulant mess. )

Re: Your Fave Lost... Who are You Rooting for Now?

Well of my top favourites, Venus Jela and Danka are all out. I still have Masha, but for who knows how much longer!

I am happy for Agnes though, and I hope she can at least make a quarterfinal where I hope she'll lose to Masha.

I would also like to see Serena go far, and I hope Cirstea making a semifinal would be pretty good.

I wouldn't mind seeing Safina or Jankovic win their first slam.
