Re: Players That You Became A Fan Of Or Lost Your Affection After AO 2013
I became a fan of Jamie Hampton, Madison Keys and of course Sloan Stephens. One of the great stories of this Major was that the USA finally has a good crop of young players.
Lets hope they can build on what they achieved at the AO open.
At first I had a negative reaction to Vika's antics. But with more time to reflect, I don't think its as bad as was initially reported. As a top player and premier athlete, its her job to compete and win. If people don't like the rule, change it. Don't blame players for knowing the rule book. What she did would have been legal even in an ethical sport like Golf. She broke no rules. Didn't cheat. Didn't lie.
The time-out injury break in women's tennis has been an issue for a long time. Maybe an incident like this will finally get officials to change it. Plus the controversy is great for the WTA!
I came away with no real negative reactions to any WTA player.
