Former fan of Jen Capriati from 1989 to late 1993. Lost love for her when she was in trouble outside of tennis eventually after she lost the first round of US Open 93. My favorite memory was when she beat Graf for Gold medal in 92.

Former fan of Anna Kournikova from late 1992 to Feb 2001. Lost love for her when immediately after she lost to Mauresmo in Paris Indoor 2001. No regrets for me turning my back on her. My favorite memory was she made in the final of Lipton 98 after beating 4 top 10 in a row.

Hard-core and devoted fan of Maria Sharapova from Sept 1999 to until she retires. Right after that, no doubt I will retire as a tennis fan and no longer be following WTA tennis. Maria will be my last favorite player.

Justine

I became interested in Justine when I learned in the back pages of Tennis Week magazine in the spring of 1999 that this unknown Belgian girl had just won her very first WTA tournament.

I became an actual fan when she came to Philadelphia that fall and shocked everyone by beating the big star Kournikova right off the bat, and in straight sets! Who was this kid?? A few months later I finally got to see her play on tv, and I found myslef liking her game, her style, and her whole tightly-wound persona more and more.

But it was only a year ago that I realized that Justine had sneaked past everyone and, unknown to me at the time, had quietly become my #1 favorite. I realized it (with a shock) when she was set to play my longtime beloved fave, Monica Seles, at Wimbledon last year, and I suddenly realized I wanted Justine to win!

But Monica, that sweetie , will always be my favorite human being on the Tour. Justine, though, did take over last year as my favorite player of the game of tennis.
