Arrow Which player(s) makes you watch the entire match without zapping once.

What player makes you see the entire match without zapping once cause it's so damn exciting and enjoyable to watch.

For me it's without a single doubt the girl in my sig.When she's playing I just can't take my eyes of it,coz you know even if she plays bad there's going to be a couple of genious shots and in the end I think that it was worth all the waiting.

Unless someone's having a really awful day and stinkin' up the joint, it's the commentators that make me want to change channels. The players I"m usually happy to watch.

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

No one. I zap during the commercial breaks because they are at every change of ends and I get very irritable watching the same ad every ten minutes . I always zap back though, especially to Monica .

I can watch anyone on the womens tour without any problems. I enjoy watching tennis no matter whos playing (though i like to watch some players more than others). We get little tennis coverage here so i enjoy it when its on.
Some mens matches are boring to watch though. We get too much mens tennis coverage, especially of Hewitt and Phillipoussis, so i dont watch sometimes when they are on.

Honestly none. Even my favorites every now and then make me feel like changing the channels, especially when they are winning easily.
Generally like I said in an other thread, I get bored of anything where one is totally dominating the other. In watching women's tennis, the most important thing for me is the outcome cuz I really don't pay attention to their skills or technique. I watch men's to enjoy watching "tennis". That said, I enjoy women's tennis more, cuz I don't have any particular fav on men's tour.

Serena( when she´s on, no one is better at hitting winners), Venus( her movement over the court is stunning, Justine( she can do some amazing things with the ball).

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Venus and Serena (in that order), ESPECIALLY when they're killing some poor soul 6-2, 6-1 in 40 minutes. Carnage on the tennis court is a good thing.
