Players you're supporting or dropping support for

Something has prompted me to create this thread. I don't know what exactly, but it's likely my pent up frustration with my faves over the past two years. I'm sure many fans feel the same way.

Faves I still root for:
Safina
Azarenka

Recent faves:
Oudin
Zheng
Peer

Possible faves:
Venus
Clijsters
Wickmayer

Faves I've given up on:
Chakvetadze
Dementieva

Faves I'm on the verge of giving up on:
Zvonareva

Azarenka * Kvitova * Zvonareva * Oudin * Zheng * Peer
Waiting for the next great non-headcase to emerge....

Re: Players you're supporting or dropping support for

I should have given up on most of my faves years ago, but I still love them.

Not necessarily. None of my current faves have won a major. If I was really fairwaether, I would not have dropped being a fan of Henin (which I did for her being a poor sport, a coward, to name a few). I've never liked Serena even with her 12 slams and it's taken almost 10 YEARS for me to warm up to Venus.

Re: Players you're supporting or dropping support for

i'll always love nutjob chak, but i do love watching kim clijsters play nowadays. i think when she was just one of a group of great players 2000-2006 i didnt respect her game enough.

im happy henin is back to. infact im holding (clinging more like) to kim, justine, serena and venus right now to keep womens tennis intresting for me.

Anna Chakvetadze Rules

Kim Clijsters - Supporting the comeback!

I have no other faves, I just hate

Re: Players you're supporting or dropping support for

I don't think I have ever given up on my faves and I doubt I will
Maria S, Ana, Jelena, Vika, Serena.
Out of lesser known players, Arantxa Rus, Laura Robson, Johanna Larsson, Romana Tabakova.

Whatever you do now,
the world still turns.

Re: Players you're supporting or dropping support for

Despite how sh*tty Ana has been over the last 1.5 - almost 2 years, I still can't even imagine dropping her Same goes for most of my faves, something about them that makes me not able to stop following them

Ana Ivanovic
Angelique Kerber Sara Errani Julia Goerges
Marion Bartoli Garbińe Muguruza
Andrea Petkovic Mona Barthel
