Have you ever gone from complete DETESTING a player to being IN LOVE with them?!

This is what happened with me and Roddick. Also, once upon a time, I really couldn't stand Clijsters--but that was for a few months when I hardly knew her. Then, I just fell in love with her, like that. Oh, and Daniela. Kim and Daniela, I wouldn't say I detested, but I started out really really not liking them. Roddick--oooooooooouu, I hated him so much. Just last year

I think changes of heart are so wonderful. And for people to say so outloud is very admirable quality. Just curious if anyone else has had similar reactions to a player

That happened with Davenport for me. I don't know if I'm in love with her but I like her a lot. I used to hate watching her play now I can appreciate her.

Ashley Harkleroad.....I used to hate her so much, she was such a useless player and she was way too hyped. But since then she's proved herself as a great person and player, and now she's one of my favorites!

Same here. I can say I am a Davenport fan now. She rocks. She's got the 'tude. LOL

Oh, and can we do the reverse? Jelena Dokic used to be a favorite of mine about 2 years ago, now I despise her thanks to her attitude.

The very same thing happend to me with Lindsay. I used to dislike her, but after I watched her more she grew on me!

Also to a lesser degree Hingis, I kinda miss her now.

Hey James. LOL! There goes another one. Same here. She's in my sig now, but I used to not like her-- A LOT. I think I just didn't like anybody or something

....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

no I might not have detest them anymore but I didn't start to root for them(of course those days the only player I sometimes rooted for outside steffi was mary joe). that said I felt sad when sabatini retired anyway

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I dislike petrova, can't imagine that will change soon

When I first saw Kim I thought "Oh God another crappy power player" and then she beat Hingis. But soon thereafter she became my second fave (behind Martina, of course).

In reverse...I used to like Aggassi but now I take glory in his losses.
