Who is Huber? - just kidding I like her too. I watch her some match. She have a great game on the net. She have a very good technique. Very intelligent and incredible player.

Well, I'm 24, but these teenagers probably have been watching tennis for a much longer time than I did. I'm only watching since RG last year I know who Anke Huber is though. The only other German who won Stuttgart

I think many of the 16 more or less year olds have only started following the game in the recent times so I can understand them.
well,I started to follow tennis pretty early, I mean, tennis was so popular in Germany in the late 80s/early 90s with Becker,Graf,Stich und Huber, it was almost impossible not to follow it!
Well, my first tennis memories are from 1995

But now it is not that interesting anymore, many of my favs retired and I am not that much into those new young players

She also reached final in Melbourne, won Masters of Champions (some tournament which only existed for one year ) and reached No.4 in rankings

Yeah, whatever But tell me, why didn't Steffi ever win Stuttgart? Was she tanking or didn't participate much?

last time she played there was in 1985, when she just was 16, after that she didn´t even play there anymore, the relation between Filderstadt and her wasn´t that great due to a few reasons...

Wow that's pretty short but never too early to start -- to be honest I've been hearing tennis since probably the early 2000's or something but it never really took my mind... when I discovered Maria I was 17 and she really captivated me because of you know why.

Then I became a fan of Nicole because I thought she would have been the next Maria, sadly (I miss her so much ), Maria then got hurt in 2008 and I wasn't watching or planning to watch any tennis when I discovered Victoria, then Sabine and in RG 2009 I literally had a crush on Sorana the 3rd love of my life.

And finally Julia.

Ah, yes, I forget you are from Germany so it's true that many of you must have started watching since from the cradle. Julia herself had said in an ITW that she had started watching Stuttgart since baby.

I can't really speak of before and I might sound biased but I think tennis right now is interesting in a different manner. Personally I just love the sport more than any other, I've been in women's tennis for like 5 years now and I just don't see myself completely stop following the game.

That said in the new crop of girls 93, 94, I've seen nobody other than Kristina Mladenovic and Coco Vandeweghe for who I could become passionate about but we'll see.

Génie - Victoria - Kristina.

Yeah, does it show? I was getting bored by the low quality of the material I had to study for my licence degree and saw a match between Caro and Flavia. I found Caro's game interesting, especially those moonballs

I know Julia because she beat my favourite at the time, Sam. I also liked Lena much and had short crushes on Petko and Wicky. I'm starting to like Sabine and I saw a very good display of tennis from Sori last week. If she does it again, I might like her too

That is sad indeed. But hey, astronomy could worth more than a lousy performance by Julia, should the latter happen
