Is Myskina your favorite athlete?

I know we must have some multi-sports fans in here like me so I was wondering how many of you have Nastya as their absolute favorite athlete. Nastya is not my favorite athlete. Maybe #2 but no where close to #1. Which isn't bad considering tennis is only my 4th favorite sport. So who else can admit that Nastya isn't their favorite athlete? Or am I just a horrible fan who deserves to be flogged?

Hmmmm. I am a fan of different sports. If I was offered a chance to see any athlete currently playing in action, it would be Myskina. I wouldn't even have to think about it. If you could put me into a time machine my answer might be different. I am quite taken by Nastya though.

Not so strange. I'm not gay and most of my favorite athletes have been male. I admit, I get a different feeling watching Nastya than I do watching Brett Favre.

My favorite athlete is Rod Smith, he is a Wide Receiver for the Denver Broncos. American football is my favorite sport by a wide margin and the Broncos are my favorite team. Smith is my favorite athlete by a gigantic margin.

Myskina may be my 2nd favorite athlete though. It is close with her and a couple of others. Definitely top 4.

I hate Roddick. Probably because I'm force fed him all the time. Just like the rest of the American players. All of whom I pretty much despise. I like Roddick's post match interviews especially after a Federer match because he can be really funny. Other than that though I don't like him.

NHL hockey player Steve Yzerman beats Nastya, but he's nearing retirement (likely when this season is over.) But that's it.

I watch a lot of sports (except american football and golf and rugby) but don't have too many favourites I cheer for it seems.

I guess Steve Yzerman the way he plays the game, his tempermant and personality is kinda how I wanted to be. So he's kinda a hero-like stature. While, Anastasia Myskina, the way she plays and her personality and temperment, is my ideal girl, I guess.

I refuse to answer this question on the grounds that it might incriminate me.

Seriously, Kasey Keller and Lena D. are probably my favorite male and female athletes, respectively. Nasty's just a slight tick behind Lena, though.
