Why, why, why are we all Lena fans?

Being a Lena D. fan isn't easy, Lord knows. She's broken more hearts on her climb/descent/climb/descent/climb etc. than she has racket strings during her career. All of us could have easily selected or switched to supporting other players and not have our sporting emotions so cruelly toyed with. Yet we still love her. This poll is an attempt to determine why.

Re: Why, why, why are we all Lena fans?

you know what, Max, if she were the feminine Federer, I doubt I'd be a ED fan, it's against my masochist nature...but, on a second thought, I'd love if she dominates the wta tour for a while...four, five years...

Elena Dementieva

Re: Why, why, why are we all Lena fans?

that's an easy poll. Just because she is Lena D.
I mean when I saw her for 1st time (US Open 2000) I just fall in love

What's the point? Do you want to be frontrunners?
Then root for Amelie, Maria and Kim. You might be rooting for a winner.

You hit it right on the head! I love to see Lena fight. I love it when she loses the first set, but then bagels her opponent in the third set. She's dope like that. Even for fans of Maria Sharapova, they love her because she fights, she doesn't just cruise like Federer so often does. I remember reading a NY Times magazine article on Federer and the article mentioned how television networks, etc were afraid that Federer's matches would be boring because he just crushes other players. People like to see people like Lena with their backs against the wall because pressure often produces the best tennis. And Lena comes up with her best tennis in pressure situations, it's just that her serve does come through.

Re: Why, why, why are we all Lena fans?

If Elena became Federer-esque, I'd still back her. In fact it'd be good for my health.

I'm a fan because she made a good impression when I first saw her, in a time when I didn't have any women players that I liked. She was very nice with the fans. And easy on the eye

Re: Why, why, why are we all Lena fans?

What I want to know is who DIDN'T pick the last one, since it's multiple choice.

(Most of the pro-Lena statements above would support the "Lena fucking rocks" theory).

Re: Why, why, why are we all Lena fans?

I voted for the first and last two options. I really need to chose my favorite players more carefully next time. Nastya sucks. Tati is a massive choker and always hurt. Lena is a massive choker. Elena L. is a massive choker and doesn't win anymore. ALG sucks and is in terrible shape. Only Severine and Anna C. don't let me down whenever they have the chance.

And on the mens side JCF is atrocious now.

I would like to at least once in my life as a tennis fan pick a player that actually wins and doesn't torment me on a daily basis.

Re: Why, why, why are we all Lena fans?

I don't know. Believe it or not, the first woman tennis player I was a fan of was Martina Navratilova. It was great. I got really spoiled.

Now, of course, I haven't had a favorite woman player win a singles major since. I mean, I liked some of the others, but nobody I'd actually go out of my way to follow.

After years of frustration, I went ahead and bit the bullet to jump on the Federer bandwagon just to preserve my sanity. Pluse he really does play some beautiful tennis.

At least you Nastya fans (yeah, I'm one too, but we know who I was rooting for during the catastrophe on clay) will always have Paris.
