Does anyone else miss Dominique Van Roost?

Since she retired I have found it hard to have a fave, she was one in a million, a great fighter and was the first belgian to reach teh Top Ten.

We Miss U!!!!

i miss her too

It's not shyness I have. It's just that I'm not one of those people who loves to open a newspaper of magazine and see myself all the time. I don't like that at all. I prefer to play my tennis which I love, and with which I've been blessed.

I always thought she was very fun to watch! I remember when she won the olympic bronze medal in doubles, and her emotional win over Lindsay at RG. I hope she's enjoying her life outside of tennis!!!

Dominique is a sweetie!

I'm sure she's happy now, tending to her little one.

Many people who were fans may miss her but I am not sure
how she is remembered among many tennis fans because
she did not have that impact on tennis as compared to
Henin and Clijsters. Though she played her part; not enough
in my opinion.

After Julie Halard's retiremnet I feel the same way, fave-less!

Actually Dominique would have become my fave if she had not retired at the same time as Julie.

My 1st and 2nd faves bowed out at the same time.

I think she was a badly under-rated player, capable of anything.
