Tennis Players Favourite Players/Idols

Who were/are the tennis players favourite players?

I know that Martina N is Petra's fave and that Marion's favourite is Seles, but who else?

I'd like to know because I want to see if they have a similar game to their favourites/idols i.e. Marion has a very similar game to Seles.

Just guessing, but I'm sure most of the German girls loved Steffi

Also, what about the young up and coming stars? Who are/were their favourites?

Caro' idol is Martina Hingis though

Hmm.... Stosur, Henin & Strycova play a similar game to Graf, don't you think?

I'm sure she still admires her game though her game is widely still widely respected
her personality? not so much

I think Agnieszka admires her too.

He didn't say he loved her results, though.

Sveta can really do almost anything in the game but be consistent.

Didn't Bojana say she admired Sharapova as a kid?

And the dish ran away with the spoon..
