a new favorite needed ?!

after henin's retirement (1st and 2nd) I have switched to Jankovic for her tennis, as well as her "drama queen" attitude. but she has lost interest in tennis and lost early often lately.
Who else can I root for?
No one is consistant enough to be in the later rounds week in and week out?!?!
Serena and Venus only play whenever they feel like it
Wozniacki?!? It was maybe a choice, but now she's also losing early (and i hardly like her)
Clijsters: Part time tennis player, and when she wants to play she's injured
Azarenka she's probably the most consistant, but she kept retiring, when she can't fight in her matches, or slightly injured
Zvonareva: inconsistant
Li: Only plays well in the GS, keep losing early, in other tournaments
Sharapova: the hunger is not there anymore
Who should i root for. I don't want to give up on JJ. but if she keeps losing early? then I might need to find a substitute favorite. any suggestion?

Maju terus Tenis Indonesia!

Re: a new favorite needed ?!

You want a drama queen? Try Lisicki. You may have to weather the storm for a few months while she learns how to keep the ball in play, but she'll be a Top 10 player eventually. And she's only 21 now.

Tsvetana PironkovaSabine LisickiMaria Sharapova
Christina McHaleZheng JieMaria Kirilenko
Laura RobsonPetra KvitovaDominika Cibulkova

@JJ all the way.. let's see if she could beat Zheng. she doesn't have a good record vs the chinese. but she's 4-1 against Zheng. but it's been 3 years since they faced each other

It depends. I'm pretty sure I'll die 20 years sooner than expected for being a hardcore fan of both Dementieva and Mauresmo!

Re: a new favorite needed ?!

How do you just 'pick' a favorite player? Isn't it more organic than that if it's genuine to begin with?

Björk
Imperious in victory. Never conceiving the possibility of defeat. The greatest of her era. The self-belief, that smile, backhand, muscles, serve, personality, all larger than life. There's no greater sight in women's tennis than watching Serena J. Williams go to work.
The others are Great, but Serena's the Greatest

Re: a new favorite needed ?!

picking a favorit player? that will not work
you will feel it when someone is around who has Favorit player potential

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

I see this could have a reality tv potential. You know like Paris Hilton's new BFF.

WTA should maybe consider it instead of the Xperia shots. 100% drama guarantee.

Jankovic still has potential to deliver the goods.
