Since when you are into Mary?

I thought it would be nice to know when you all started loving Mary!

I'm in love with her for about 12 years now.
I saw her at Filderstadt (1993) where she beat Natasha Zvereva in the final 6:3;6:3! At this time I began to play tennis on my own and I needed someone to identify with. I really liked her at once. She was just beautiful.

Since this time Mary was meant for me. I knew she would be the one I set my heart on for the rest of my life! And I was right. I still love her to death.

For me she is the most wonderful person to look up to. Mary is an awesome tennis player (finally a player who can hit the ball hard and fast; can't get enough of this kind of way to play tennis) with a great personality and above all she gives me the strength to move on (in every aspect of life)! She deserves so much respect for what she has achieved. I'm so damn proud of her! Don't know what to do if she retires one day (can't even think about it)!

Mary, thanks for being there and making me happy everytime I see you! There is still more to come and I will support you in every single moment! Enjoy yourself!

Kathrin.

I've been a fan since the very early 90's. She's the reason I started to follow tennis.


Le Poussin! Faithfully ignoring the haters since 1995.

Arrow 1995

when I saw her win the Australian Open! It was the first tennis match I had really watched properly! I didn't like tennis at the time but my mum and my sister did and they made me watch it! I remember Mary said 'Um' a lot in her speech and I thought she was the coolest thing ever!

From then on I started to play tennis and began following it! I love it!
Mary Rules!

Same with me. My brother is a big Amanda Coetzer fan and I remember the semis. I was cheering for Mary and him for Amanda
I started liking her because in one of her earlier matches at the tournament she was grunting I fell in love with the grunt ever since then I have been a fan, but over the last three years I became obsessed

Mary is the most graceful and charming tennis player of the universal, and anyone who love Mary or understand Mary is also a kind gentle one!

92 when she lost to Capriati with her old fashioned glasses

Will U continue to follow tennis if Mary retires?

Roland Garros 1994...I was a big fan of Steffi at that time...but I remember being amazed by Mary beating her so handily...and I was very dissapointed when she lost to Sanchez-Vicario in the finals...

Oh well...at that time I really liked the way she hits the ball...awesome shot making...

And throughout the years I've become a fan of hers...I got to know more about Mary...and I really feel that she's such a stylish player with an admirable personality...how she overcome so many hurdles in her life...makes me proud of becoming her fan...

GO MARY...!!!!!!!

...Mary Pierce...my queen...forever....


...Daniela Hantuchova...my little angel...

Lindsay Davenport...
Jennifer Capriati...

I was first interested in Mary in mid-1990 (I think) when Mary decided to represent France -I remember Nathalie Tauziat was against Mary's admission to the France team, and I hated Tauziat so took to Mary straight away! I followed her results closely over the next couple of years with interest, but because she didn't play at Wimbledon until 1995 only caught her on TV a couple of times -Filderstadt one year, and Brighton in 1993, when I think she made the Semis. Then at the end of 1994 I met my partner who had satellite TV so from then on I was able to see many more of Mary's matches, including the fantastic 1995 Australian Open. By this time she was easily my favourite player, and of course has been ever since. But at Eastbourne the following year I was lucky enough to see Mary play live for the first time, (a three-set tough first round loss to Irina Spirlea), and it was then that my feelings for her were really cemented - there's something about seeing a player live, when you get the real essence of their personality and really bond with them...I've never been the same since -really!
