I just enjoy her playing. I guess I get nervous, but after 14 years and all she's been through, I love her playing more and more everyday and am just glad she's still out there showing some of the young guns just how it's done. When she wins, I just have a feeling of "ok, all's right and good in the universe today" and if she loses, I admire the caliber of tennis it takes to beat her. I am just truly thankful for everytime she steps on the court.

(Of course, would it be a Slam final - I'd be pissing myself nervous!)

I yell like you wouldn't believe when she wins really big points, usually a "YEAH YEAH YEAH" loud enough and intense enough to scare people a quarter mile away. Last time was when she took control of the Schwartz match.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

I miss sleep all the time for Monica - well, not just Monica. If she's playing at an odd hour - I will stay up/get up to watch the scores if it's on the net. I will do this for other remarkable matchups too (Lindsay v. Venus...Hingis v. Lindsay, etc... so it's not just a Monica thing)

yeah but then of course she retired so not anymore

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I was always taught that anybody can win on any given day, so I get nervous every time one of my faves is playing. I think they will win, but I don't take anything for granted so I really get into the match. It also depends on which of my faves is playing, if it is Hingis then I really get into the match, same for Kournikova. While Dokic and Tulyaganova are 2 of my new faves I don't get as excited for their matches right now as for when Hingis or Kournikova are playing. That will change over time though.

I get really nervous when either Hingis or Kournikova play. Even if its just a 1st round i think it could be an upset and wont calm down, although with anna this is very frustrating cos she has been losing in the 1st round. I normally just sit there quiet and throw advice like"go to the net, hit your seves harder etc" if the player is winning really easy. I never really calm down when Anna is playing even if she is a set and 5-0 up cos she has lost some shockers after having a good lead. When martina or Anna meet a top 10 then i am nervous from start to finish, shout at the TV, cuss the other player, move around and just fidget like mad until the match is over.

When a Favourite loses i just sit there moody and somber and it takes about half an hour for me to snap out of it, and then go on and on to anyone that will listen how they shouldnt have lost the match and she didnt try hard enough

I usually get a nerve collapse while watching Lindsay... After the injury she's had when I see her play I really try to enjoy her being on the court. I feel amazing just by watching Lindsay play, and when she's not playing so well I send her good vibes and always work..
I shouldn't say what was the most outrageous thing I did when Lindsay was playing...
