Has there ever been a REALLY unfortunate Tennis Year for you?

I'm still not over that I'll probably never see Golovin and Vaidisova, my absolute top faves, on a Tennis Court again. This year has been terrible too. My faves Bondarenko, Szavay and Bacsinszky ALL out of Top 100, even Top 200, this just sucks BIG time. Was there anything similar for you and your faves in the past? This is just terrible. I think I'm done with WTA as soon as Daniela retires. Really the only one standing next to Pavly but Pavly doesn't even come close to the likes of Nicole, Tatiana, Alona etc.

Ka. PLISKOVA - E. SVITOLINA - E. VESNINA - A. PAVLYUCHENKOVA - T. BACSINSZKY
N. VAIDISOVA - D. HANTUCHOVA - T. GOLOVIN - A. BONDARENKO - A. SZAVAY - M. PIERCE

Re: Has there ever been a REALLY unfortunate Tennis Year for you?

I honestly mean no disrespect, but Vaidisova and especially the Bondarenko sisters are all players that Ive wondered why would anyone really care to follow them? What made you such a big fan of those two in particular?

To answer your question, 1994 was the year for me. Martina Navratilova retired from singles, Conchita beat her in the wimbledon final, MOnica was still sitting on the sidelines after being stabbed the year before and Steffi was pretty much the hollow number 1. That was my dark year in tennis.

Of even more significance, there's this little gap in Graf's resume the size of the hole in the ozone layer: It's called Monica Seles. Was Graf the best female player of all time? She wasn't even the best in the heart of her career.

Alona
Chaky
Fedossova

... and obviously, Nicole as well.

Voilà.

The morning slips away, in a Valium haze,
And catalogs, and numerous cups of coffee.
In the afternoon, the weekly food,
Is put in bags, as you float off down the high street.

Re: Has there ever been a REALLY unfortunate Tennis Year for you?

2008, I don´t know why, but I lost interest in WTA, I did not have any players to follow, I actually prefered ATP . But it passed and I´m into WTA again. BTW I loved 2011 (3 of my faves got slam title )

Addicted to tennis, now and forever.

Re: Has there ever been a REALLY unfortunate Tennis Year for you?

I had a pretty good year as a fan Well, not the first half of the year. I'm a big fan of Lisicki and Stosur, and Sam was playing badly during the first half. But she rebounded in the 2nd half and won the US Open And you guys know Sabine's story, hope she can pull through next year!
