Oct 15th, 2001, 10:32 AM
Did someone mention me??? <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

Yes, in case there is someone at the North Pole who hasn't noticed... Im miss Julie HD very very much!

Its just no fun without her.

My second fave, Dominique Van Roost retired at the same time. Pah!

Oct 15th, 2001, 10:44 AM
I miss Sabatini! Her shot selection was phenomenal, particularly in the beginning of the nineties when she was coached by Kirmayr. She could do anything with that ball in those days, from stopvolleys to topspun lobs... I miss that kind of tennis!

Oct 15th, 2001, 11:06 AM
Filip retired last year <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">

Manuela Maleeva (but shes like 35 or something so Im over it <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">)

Gaby <IMG SRC="smilies/kiss.gif" border="0">

Spirlea....I loved watching her game!!!! That forehand! That attitude! Still young, so i wish she was still around <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">

I miss Irina Spirlea... and plenty others, but I am saving my sorrow for when Arantxa and Conchita retire <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

Oct 15th, 2001, 02:43 PM
I'm already starting to miss Anke and she hasn't even retired yet!! <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

She's the one who got me hooked on tennis...

You're, sniff, welcome!! <FONT SIZE=1>I'll just cry on your shoulder when we're out of Kleenex... <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0"></FONT>

What are we going to dooooooo?! The WTA (World of Tennis fans and Ankeholics) just won't be the same...

Oct 15th, 2001, 03:56 PM
I miss Jana a lot sometimes (she's a far more dynamic serve/volleyer than say, Tauziat - no offence!)... also Natasha of course....

I miss Kimiko Date too... I was only young when she left the Tour and found her style so weird.. but cute too! <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

Oct 15th, 2001, 04:12 PM
yeah. i totally agree with you, the freedesigner. when Kimio is leaving, i was young too, and i just stared to watch the woman's game. i also remeber kimio beat Mary Pierce and almost won Graf in 1996 Wimbledon...
i miss Jana very much. now i am not paying a lot of attention on the woman's game because it was lack of Jana Novotna. her style was so elegant. Her serve and volley is so unblievable... <IMG SRC="smilies/sad.gif" border="0">

Oct 16th, 2001, 12:05 AM
van roost!!!!!!! i never got to see her play even but i love her so much!!!!! and sabine <IMG SRC="smilies/hearts.gif" border="0"> how cool that they are on so many peoples lists. i thought i wasthe only one!!!

Oct 16th, 2001, 12:34 AM
Yeah right I miss Betty Stöve, Betty who? Stöve. Duh

And Martina now she is in hospital. The Sanex Championships wont be the fun for me as I had hoped it would be.

Oct 16th, 2001, 01:09 AM
Franziska - I'll put some extra thick shoulder pads in to soak up the excess!! <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

Then we'll have to set up our very own Ankeholics Anonymous meeting.
See you there!

Oct 16th, 2001, 03:51 PM
(Im already missing her)

Oct 16th, 2001, 03:59 PM
it was a pity jana injured her ankle in 99
or she would have a much longer career

Oct 16th, 2001, 04:21 PM
Hello, I'm a belgian... So, I miss my little Sabine and my little Dominique... But, Sabine Appelmans is now a TV-reporter, so I can see her almost every day on TV...

Oct 24th, 2001, 09:45 PM
Definitely Dominique, of course...
