Who are your other favorites?

Who are your other WTA favorites, outside of JJ?

Mine are: Mauresmo, Henin, Peer, & Chakvetadze. I'm also somewhat partial to a few others: Safarova, Vesnina, & Ivanovic.

Re: Who are your other favorites?

I don't like Justine as a person, but her game is fantastic. Also I love to watch Safarova, Li Na, Alona Bondarenko and Sam Stosur

Re: Who are your other favorites?

Unlike other major sports, in tennis we only get to see
stars, more stars and incidental views at lower class,
rookies and teens zooming up the charts. Who knows how
many years before one can take a deeper look (from a comfy
chair) at players like Alexa Glatch, Anna Tatishvili or
even Caroline Wozniacki.

Rep points of the blinkering spectator go to.....

Anna Chakvetadze.
Finally one player coming to the rescue of meditative tennis.
Eccentric diagonales and nonrational anticipation don't tell
the full story of rare mystic on the tour.

Elena Dementieva.
Mean groundstrokes make a perfect antidote to the soothing
effect of her persona and visage.

Dominika Cibulkova.
Legs of a weightlifter, but face is divine. Tenacity of a pit-bull
with a lockjaw is a bonus. Expect her to drive crazy the rest
of the tour.

Re: Who are your other favorites?

Hingis, Mauresmo, Zvonareva and Golovin.

I'm also keeping an eye on the likes of Paszek and Azarenka, who I would like to see do well.

Re: Who are your other favorites?

I only tend to root for one player in a hardcore way It used to be Kim since 2000, but now JJ obviously.

But, I like Hingis, Ivanovic, Mirza, Peer & Safarova. I like the look of Pascek as well.

Re: Who are your other favorites?

Ok, normally I would say, I haven't got another fav player besides Jelena. But if I should name somebody, then it would be Justine Henin. For me she has such a great style and she's also what I call a nearly perfect allround-player. Good on all surfaces, with no real weaknesses and a unique and beautiful one-handed backhand.

Re: Who are your other favorites?

Chakvetadze, Kirilenko, Ivanovic, Mirza, Hingis, Paszek and Safarova - though none of them come close to JJ in my eyes!!

Past players (are we allowed to mention those?!) who I still consider favourites are Seles, Graf, Capriati

These are some reasons why I like Justine as well. I don't have the uber-FAN response to her like I do JJ...maybe because she's already a proven slam winner. But her game to me is just divine. From a purely technical standpoint right now, she's my favorite player...but JJ wins in all the other categories.

It's sometimes hard for me to remember past favorites, but I'd definitely say Navratilova & Seles, as I feel they were so innovative at their respective times. Graf was a player I kind of loved-hated...not unlike Serena today...she was so dominant I found it hard to root for her, but her game was magnificent.

Re: Who are your other favorites?

Some lightyears behind JJ maybe Hantuchova and then it gets difficult. Maybe I would watch Dani more often if she wouldn't always wear that "thing" on her head while playing.

Re: Who are your other favorites?

I like almost everyone but my favourites are Vesnina, Kirilenko, Sharapova, Myskina, Dementieva & Golovin (yeah im shallow and superficial, i only like the pretty ones ). Of course i support the swedish players the most but they all play like crap right now so it feels pointless even mentioning them. For some reason i hardly like any american players. Chanda Rubin is the only american player ive ever really liked (i dont count Martina Navratilova and Monica Seles as americans). Jana Novotna is my all-time favourite player.
