Yes I was just reading some old Serena vs Justine threads, who will end up with more slams, can Justine pass Serena, who will be best of her generation. It's so hilarious reading them now

I particularly enjoy the pre-Australian Open 2007 threads.

Re: You know you are an obsessed tennis fan when you..

When you "arrange" for your family to be out of the house so you can watch matches alone.
When you can't fall asleep you count tennis balls instead of sheep.
When you set your alarm to wake you at 3am to watch AO or USO matches (from my time zone anyway)

Re: You know you are an obsessed tennis fan when you..

For me, I see players when I see a car number plate. For instance the Mandurah cars are abrreviated MH and I immediately think Martina Hingis. I see SW I see Serena Williams. this is for both WTA & ATP. I have no memory of anything else.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Re: You know you are an obsessed tennis fan when you..

This thread is just amazing

As for me:

- I ALWAYS go out with my friends no matter who's playing, but I always remember to check LiveScores on my Phone, no matter who's playing, and no matter how drunk I am.
- Having an excellent knowledge about random citys and countries because of Tennis Tournaments.


I think this is it. However, I used to be much a bigger Tennis fan, a Tennis-Freak, a few years ago, back when Vaidisova and Golovin were still playing and Dani was at her best. Back then I used to:

- Spend Saturday afternoons at home following LiveScores online
- Getting huge mobile phone bills because of checking scores in the internet when I'm not in Switzerland
- Crying because your fave lost (or getting realllyyy upset)
- Always having a look at new Nike/Adidas outfits etc.

Gosh... There's really too much to write about

N. VAIDISOVA - T. GOLOVIN - A. BONDARENKO - A. SZAVAY
D. HANTUCHOVA - A. PAVLYUCHENKOVA - E. VESNINA - E. SVITOLINA
J. GOERGES - A. WOZNIAK - Y. WICKMAYER - E. BOUCHARD - Ka. PLISKOVA

I don't even know why I do it ... I'm not a massive fan of hers, nor am I a massive detractor. There's just something so satisfying about KAMANing at every opportunity.

Re: You know you are an obsessed tennis fan when you..

*When you have spreadsheets charting your faves' ranking points that you update as they play each match.

*When you get upset about a result in the first qualifying round of a $10000 tournament

*When you develop superstitious watching routines when your favorite plays and feel like secretly it helps

*When you have multiple devices streaming all the courts with live coverage at the AO, because it is the beginning of the year, and you have been tennis-deprived for a few weeks
