Where's my tour?

When I first came on to the WTA Fanatics Association, I was used to having Martina Hingis giving me problems falling asleep.

Venus and Serena were ranked 6 and 17, respectively. Anna Kournikova was in the top 10 and Lindsay Davenport played.

Monica Seles made semifinals of grandslams ranking in the top 4. Irinia Spirlea was cussing in every match.

Conchita and Aranxta represented the Armada ever so proudly. Steffi still showed off her prowess every time on the court.

So I ask, where's my tour?

For the first time in over 5 years, I did not print the WTA rankings and save them (I started from August 1998 - July 2003).

I have no idea what's going on in tennis except that Venus and Serena are not #1 and #2 and I miss them more than dear life.

So for any other "old-schoolers" out there........ya'll feeling me?



PS - I'm back


PPSS -- No disrespect to the current tour, which I'm sure is awesome -- I'm just wishing for my "good ol days"

I hear ya! But I understand. You can't handle not seeing me at the top, winning everything in sight. You poor thing. To make you feel better, how about you come and share a burger with me next time you're in town. Just go into any Burger King where there's a tournament happening and I'll probably be there.

Jennifer Capriati is my idol

You still expect Steffi to play ?

Hi ! Have you been to Greenville again this year ?

BTW, could you maybe reduce your signature a little bit ?

I didn't make it to Greenville this year, but I saw that Nancy played.

I am back in school and have no free time (except now as I'm on fall break).

BTW - I forgot to mention my favorite pixie -- also known as Mrs. Van Roost. She was one of my fave players back in the day too

BTW - thanks to everyone else for responding too!

Welcome back Josh

Can't say as I'm all that excited about the tour and I'm going to the championships

I was bored with Hingis vs. Davenport all the time in '98-99, bored with Williams x 2 finals the last few years and I'm certainly tired of the all-Belgian affairs. I loved the years when a different girl won each slam. Of course, as a Steffi fan, it never bothered me for her to win 3 out of 4 slams a year, so sue me

I mainly wish everyone would get healthy, Daniela would gain enough weight not to be faxed city to city and Jennifer Capriati would pull her head out of whatever orifice it is stuck in and win a damn match that matters. Oh, the good old days. I must go now and watch a tape of some quality tennis from days gone by.

Maybe we should have a Mass Exodus over to ATP. If only there were more bitches on that tour it would be perfect.

1) Find new players to love... I had to do the same thing. I was bored with the women's game during the late 90's... until I found an extremely tall Russian girl that I developed quite an interest in.

2) I know you're a fan of challengers, and such. I find it much more fun watching the young players, and the worse players develop. It gives you more options... and I personally find that more interesting than following the Top 10.

3) Bust out some old tapes... and enjoy that.

Welcome back Josh...!!! I, too, feel that there's a "lot missing" from the tour and would gladly welcome back the "days of old"...!!! But, you know what they say; "you can't go home again"...!!!
