Venus, Paola Saurez and Kim. I like her most probably outside of Serena.

I'm getting an interest in the Chinese players right about now.

I go back and forth with Lindz and Venus

I used to like MoMo, Bovina, and Sharapova

I love to root against JuJu, JCap, and any one on the other side of the net of SERENA WILLIAMS.

I used to like Davenport and Justine. I was never for or against Sharpova and it largely remains that way with her.

First and foremost, like Stefwhit said, I love to root against JuJu, JCap, even Venus and any one on the other side of the net of SERENA WILLIAMS.

But, I want Venus and Golovin to do well as well.

I root for Kim C., and Svetlana K. There is something about these players who I can respect and genuinely root for because they strike me as equally good people and tennis players.

I root for Kim C., and Svetlana K. There is something about these players who I can respect and genuinely root for because they strike me as equally good people and tennis players.

Looking back this has stayed the same as well as my reasoning behind these players. I am finding that there are players who I don't necessarily like in terms that they are not my faves and I do not root for them, but I enjoy their games and watching them play. Dementieva is one as well as Capriati. A good respect for the game sometimes is all that is necessary :)

:lol: last year I had people in my siggy. Here goes in terms of who has stayed the same: Mary, Dinara, Venus, Kim, Vera.

New ones: Svetlana, Nadia, Jelena Jankovic, and I sort of like Sharapova. Not the hype around her or that sad and repetitive commerical. But with the sound on mute, I like her just fine.

It's probably easier to ask me who I don't like such as Maria Sharapova, Justine and JenCap. I love Vee, Lindsay, Chanda, Kutznetsova, Pierce, Myskina. I will root for JenCap if there are no other Americans in the tournament, like when she played Justine in the US Open 'O3. I also like Golovin, Dementiava (even though I think she's catty, I like to see her play)

Venus, Kuznetsova, Clijsters, Ivanovic and Safina.

Federer, Murray and a ton of atp players.

I only like WTA for W Sisters and mostly Serena.

The players in my sig are the only players I actively support. They are the only ones that give me highs when they win and lows when they lose :sad:

Although Serena is my clear favourite, there's a gap between her and Venus and then a bigger gap between Venus and Lindsay.

I liked seeing Kim winning before she retired, and ditto for Martina Hingis. These days I'm liking Ivanovic love to see her winning tournaments. :)

Diesel
Nov 12th, 2007, 06:12 PM
In terms of the ATP I like Nadal's energy, I sort of like Murray when he's not being wussy on court, and I also like Fernando Verdasco even though he just doesn't seem to win much :shrug:

Nov 12th, 2007, 06:50 PM

I like Ivanovic, Mauresmo, Bartoli, Djokovic, Federer and I think that's it.

VENUS, and pretty much all americans, and Sveta and Dementieva and Sprem.

In the Atp I like Murray, Gasquet, and Feliciano Lopez.
Oh and I would add Lindsay to the list of women.

Olórin

Well seeing as everyone's doing ATP as well :p

I'm not a fan per se of any male players. But I do enjoy watching: Federer, Murray and Djokovic, used to like ARod, but not so much these days. My favourite three male tennis player of all time are Bjorn Borg, John McEnroe and Jimmy Connors :worship:

Diesel
Nov 12th, 2007, 08:23 PM
Andy sort of reminds me of Sampras. I hated Sampras' game mainly because of the serve. Andy's game is too boring for me and I don't like how he gets away with his boorish behavior. My mother loved Connors, I liked Becker/Lendl.

Cant go past pete for so many reason: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LtgLwGUAdGY thats for those who question his talent, he played like this all the time up until around 96 (actually his game became totally built on the serve around 97 but 95-96 when Tim was dying was when this kinda magic showed up less and less frequently cos of paul annacone).

Then theres the greatest match in slam history for its drama the 95 Quarter against Courier, Aces through tears, and of course the most unforgettable Uso match ever, corretja 96 Quarters, saves a match point throws up on court 2nd serve ace in the breaker after hitting all his serves at grandma speeds (barely 80 mph on some).

And the man had a form of anemia like Venus, made him weak and sick in the heat, reduced athletic capacity, hurt him at the french especially the one year when it was super hot and helped his game, but just took too much out of him. He was a quiet fighter such a great heart.

Oh yeah and almost single handedly winning the dc for his country in 95 in russia, won his 2 singles matches, collapsed on court with cramps need an iv drip straight after his first match (over 4:30 mins 5 setter he started midway through the 5th and collapsed after winning match point) got up next day won the doubles against the french open champs, then finished it off with the do or die match on the 5th day. And he got a little box on the sports page to acknowledge it. (After all the times he sustained injuries and fatigue in DC which hampered his season, unlike federer who skips DC when its convenient citing that he must protect his ranking first, the Americans then had the audacity to not only not acknowledge his achievements, but to berate him for skipping future DC meets).

He put up with all this plus the slow death of his coach and his best friend, criticism from the media all the while internalising everything and never complaining just going on with his business. A model human being let alone tennis player.


Oh yeh, and before Tim was laid to rest he put his first wimbledon trophy in the coffin with him...

I used to like MoMo, Bovina, and Sharapova

I love to root against JuJu, JCap, and any one on the other side of the net of SERENA WILLIAMS.

:confused: WTF!!! I don't EVER remember liking Masha...lol. WOW, this is old- even my old signature from my original user name is surprising to me. Of the 8 players I had listed I only really support three now (Serena doesn't count, I'm a ride a die fan 4 with her).

Favorite players are Serena and Nadal. :worship: The others don't come close...

Other players I root for: everyone in my signature, Safin, Safina, Na Li, Zvonereva, Kraicek, T. Haas

Players that I'm neutral with: Lindsay, Venus, Nalbandian, Gasquet, Golovin, Szavay, Andy Murray, Moya

Players I'm starting to warm to: Hantuchova (really friendly in person), Radwanska, Azarenka, Bhagdatis, Roddick (rooted for him for the first time @ Indian Wells), Janko Tipsarevic (yummy!!)

Players I'm losing interest in: Djokovic, Chakvetadze, James Blake, Robredo

Players I LOVE to see lose: Sharapova, Justine, Mauresmo, Jankovic, Schnyder, RODIONOVA (don't get me started on this one...:fiery: ), Roger FEDERER (I loved being in the audience watching Canas beat him @ Indian wells!!!), Hewitt, Radek Stapanek, Robin Sodderling (YUCK), Bartolli (Double yuck... not friendly at all, not as bad as Rodionova, but close)

Of the players you are losing interest in, why Chaky and Blake? I can kind of see why Blake :rolleyes: For me with him, it seems he's never going to reach his full potential. Also, I'm not a fan of Chaky, just curious about that.

Also, do you root for Justine over Maria or vice versa and why?

When it comes to James Blake I really do like him. I just don't see any progression with him. Now I don't base my opinions solely on results, after-all I still love me some Petrova and she's been declining as of late. The thing that bothers me most with James is his lack of belief in his self. I remember he had mentioned that Serena once told him to walk with his head up and show more confidence. I had hoped he would take that to heart. Whenever he steps on court against Federer it's sickening to no end how his self-belief flies out the window. It's like he concedes defeat before the first point is played. I like WARRIORS, not push overs. When it comes to me and the tennis players I root for I love the players who are a lot more sure of themselves, win or lose. I don't agree with P-Mac about him incorporating more spin and altering his game ,but I wish he'd be more willing to try new things. And with that in mind, I do love his loyalty to his coach it's admirable, on the other hand I really don't know if it's the best thing for him in the long run. I feel like I have more belief in his game than he does and that's such a turn-off.

As for Chakvetadze. I remember seeing her practice @ Indian Wells about 3 years ago before anyone knew who she was. I told my friend that we needed to keep an eye on her cuz she's going to be dangerous. So when she started making a name for herself I was happy to be behind her, she was like this player I supported before she was the player she is today. The problem is when her game is off I think it's the ugliest game out there. It's funny because I want to like her and for a long time I had her in my signature, but every-time she would play I seemed to care less and less. It's just one of those things I guess, I can't get into her game for some reason.

As for Juju vs. Masha. The poster 'Lady' has got me to soften towards Juju over the years. I still don't like her, but it's not at the levels it used to be. So she moved up from being my least favorite player to my second least favorite players...lol. The only time I could envision myself rooting for Masha over Juju is in the French Open finals- can't let Juju get the career slam. So if history is on the line, something that's going to significantly add to Juju's legacy than I think I'd root for Masha to stop her- other than that I probably would root for Juju.

The way I see it Sharapova hasn't had any on court issues. Sure she's tough and concentrates on the match even with the Golovin fiasco or her vocalizations, but she's not lacking in character like Justine and hasn't acted with gamemanship. I don't much mind Maria actually. The media coverage comes with the territory. Justine I'll never root for because of who she is and what she doesn't stand for.

You hit the nail on the head as exactly how I feel about James. I think he has so much potential in his game. I love his game and love seeing him play. He knows how to get the crowd into it too, but he lacks confidence and belief in himself and I'm growing tired of it. Also, I thought the turning point for James was his win against Andre at the US Open, but alas it wasn't. I thought he would believe more in his game and become more consistent. I guess by then, everyone was beating Andre, so it was no big deal.

And you Diesel, summed up my feelings exactly about Maria and Justine. Maria is a nice girl. She couldn't help the hype surrounding her and her obnoxious father. I think her fans didn't help much in the department of me disliking her either. However, as time went on we found out Serena was right, she's overrated and that's not her fault. She gets out there and does the best she can do and she has a good game that I think will mature over the years and get better.

As far as Justine, she has no ethics and that may be because she really didn't receive any values from her family, as she didn't really have one. Carlos, I believe, twisted her mind and made her who she is and we know how he is. But, she is a grown woman now and able to see right from wrong and she still has no ethics.

I guess by then, everyone was beating Andre, so it was no big deal. When did James beat Andre at the US Open?? I know they had that great epic battle a few years back, and by all accounts James SHOULD have won that match, but it goes back to what we both see in James, his lack of belief. I wont give him too much of hard time about that loss because it was one hell of a match, but then again, it's one he should have won. From the top of my head I can't remember any other match they had at the Open. It had to be earlier in Blake's career when he was younger because I think Agassi won the last few matches they played.

OK... then you have to feel my frustration with Djokovic constantly meeting Nadal in the SFs of the majors. Just once in the majors I wish he would be lumped in Federers quarter. Even at the Championships he's in Nadal's group- not that it would matter with his current form. I know Nole played FedTard @ Oz, but that was before Djokovic upped his game. I hope both Nalbandian (those angles he produces are WICKED and Seles like,) and Djokovic find themselves challenging Roger and ending up in his quarter of the slams.

I wont give him too much of hard time about that loss because it was one hell of a match, but then again, it's one he should have won. From the top of my head I can't remember any other match they had at the Open. It had to be earlier in Blake's career when he was younger because I think Agassi won the last few matches they played.

My bad, you're right, Andre did win that one. I couldn't remember exactly who won because I love Andre too, so the loss for James didn't bother me as much as any other hard fought loss would have. I should have remembered b/c didn't it go to five sets and James didn't win a five set match until the US Open this year, right? Anyway, I remember now because I remember thinking at the time, this would turn his doubtful ways around if he had won. That's what I was disappointed in.

OK... then you have to feel my frustration with Djokovic constantly meeting Nadal in the SFs of the majors. Just once in the majors I wish he would be lumped in Federers quarter. Even at the Championships he's in Nadal's group- not that it would matter with his current form. I know Nole played FedTard @ Oz, but that was before Djokovic upped his game. I hope both Nalbandian (those angles he produces are WICKED and Seles like,) and Djokovic find themselves challenging Roger and ending up in his quarter of the slams.


:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

You and I could be VERY good friend rofl, those are my thoughts right there!!!

But in all honesty, Nole's form is 1 part overplaying (100 friggin matches this year) and then 1 part USO choke, when he had something like 7 set points in the first and thats when it fell apart for him, remember how he rushed all those points, he didnt take the proper slow ball bounce thing that he usually does, also he tried to over play so many friggin serves didnt get a 1st serve in. And then started overplaying in rallies.

Ever since then ive not seen the usual flare and passion that he had during most of the Year (let alone the USO itself). Its like Rafa post wimbledon 06, it can really kill the best when uve come that close to winning a slam (And lets face it if Nole won that first set, he most likely woulda then had the guts to finish the match, especially since Federer didnt raise his game till it was near the end, his game woulda probably dropped).


Im worried about the groups now, If federer finishes second then he plays ferrer and ferrer will most likely get crushed by him cos hes afraid of him (also he is a sucker against variety, especially a short slice), so federer gets a cakewalk to the final with all the accolades of having crushed the world beater, Roddick will play Rafa and beat him convincingly (it just looks that way from the way they match up indoors) and most likely lose another 3 setter like the USO (except probably more convincingly). I honestly dont believe roddick can beat federer, like EVER. He handed his balls over to him last year at the YEC when he f@#$ed up that match point on his own serve.

What everyone has finally wised up to is that Federer moves well but he doesnt like being moved, Ive always been a fan of Nalby and safin, more recently Rafa and Nole, and Gasguet,... now im a murray fan cos of his talent.


Look for next year to be very interesting in tennis, I think it will be the year of Nole, Murray, Nalby, and one of them will win a slam, but federer will still most likely win 2 AND STAY no1, lets just hope Rafa doesnt lose to nalby at the french and then nalby chokes the final to federer.

(secretley want it to be the year of serena and nalby :P win all four together plus the gold, but thats not likely)

What bothers me most about the players when it comes to Fed is their mental fragility and lack of belief. I might not like Fed, but I obviously recognize his talent. Some players treat him like a god, he ain't no Serena...lol, but seriously, other players should realize they're also world class tennis players. That's why I give mad props to Rafa, Nalbandian, Gasquet, Murray, Gonzalez, and all the other warriors who don't just bend over and take it, they take it to Fed whatever the result. If he beats you at his best, too good and move on, but you've got to have some belief. And although Roddick has no reason on earth to believe, I respect him because in spite of it all he still does believe. Of course believing and executing are two different things, but it all starts with belief.

As for Murray, I'm starting to warm to him, but something about him still bugs me. I heard rumours that he and Brad Gilbert might be parting ways, not sure that's a good move for him.

The darkest day in tennis will be the day that Federer wins Roland Garros or the day that Justine wins Wimbledon. Let us hope those days NEVER come.

It is pretty annoying, since he's been drawn to face Rafa so many times like you said :o But they play good matches, Miami and Montreal were :worship:

Nole is just not used to playing at this pace, Rafa and Fed are, which is why he's struggling, I think before the US Open he was still the underdog flying under the radar, now he's expected to really challenge the top two, so that's probably getting to him, anyway, he's on a 10-set losing streak if Rafa closes this match out so the sooner the season ends the better :lol:

And you Diesel, summed up my feelings exactly about Maria and Justine. Maria is a nice girl. She couldn't help the hype surrounding her and her obnoxious father. I think her fans didn't help much in the department of me disliking her either. However, as time went on we found out Serena was right, she's overrated and that's not her fault. She gets out there and does the best she can do and she has a good game that I think will mature over the years and get better.

As far as Justine, she has no ethics and that may be because she really didn't receive any values from her family, as she didn't really have one. Carlos, I believe, twisted her mind and made her who she is and we know how he is. But, she is a grown woman now and able to see right from wrong and she still has no ethics.

my feelings too...i think people take that serena statement about masha being overrated in the wrong sense...she didn't mean it as an insult...i think she meant it as i see it...that masha was touted as the next great thing to happen to tennis with this ever so great game when in fact she just has the 2D game of hit hard and hit harder...cause i do believe serena respects her game and respects her fight cause even with her type of game she's been able to maintain her place at the top..that match against patty at RG this year she won on pure fight alone...the hype i couldn't stand but then this year changed my view on her because even though she was injured the same media that promoted her as the greatest thing to step on court, ripped her to shreds e.g. mary carillo...its then when i realised that they only liked her because she stopped serena's 3-peat at wimby and her winning the YEC even though she was horribly injured...the media didn't like serena so masha just happened to be the person to beat her....now the hype is gone i can appreciate her since they are now doing to her what they did to serena...


jh will never be good in my books....03 was bad since she admitted she purposely did it since serena "needed to lose and she would do anything to get her 1st gs"...06 she retired cause she was getting drubbed by momo and withdrew...07 when she beat serena at wimby she said she didn't believe serena was injured hence why i'm not offended by serena's "lucky shots" comment...so she will forever be in my bad books

I admit some of my Joke-ovic dislike goes to the match he had with Gael Monfils at the US Open a few years back. To me that was a bit of a turning point for both. Gael hasn't gotten passed that and we see where Djokovic is at. Both players are entertaining, and I felt he could have beaten Federer this year in the final, but he just wasn't ready to capitalize on his chances. Nadal should have won Wimbledon and Djokovic I felt could have had the US Open. All exciting finals really. So when I think of it I'll have to put Djokovic on my warming up list next to Gael.

Justine said something along the lines, she wasn't aware of Serena's injury during the match or before the match. NOT that she thought Serena was faking it or wasn't injured.

And although Roddick has no reason on earth to believe, I respect him because in spite of it all he still does believe. Of course believing and executing are two different things, but it all starts with belief.

As for Murray, I'm starting to warm to him, but something about him still bugs me. I heard rumours that he and Brad Gilbert might be parting ways, not sure that's a good move for him.

The darkest day in tennis will be the day that Federer wins Roland Garros or the day that Justine wins Wimbledon. Let us hope those days NEVER come.


If you watched that YEC Round robin match yesterday, well I think federer looks more lazy and relaxed against Roddick than he does against a qualifier, Seriously. Several times in that match he had concentration lapses, he was rolling the first serve in even just toying and pushing the ball back into play sometimes when he coulda finished it, and i never see him wind-up and power into shots against guys like rafa and nalby etc, as he does with roddick, you can see this sortta sick arrogant confidence like henin against say Kuznetsova at the French or USO. HE just KNOWS hes not gonna lose, I think that match last year changed alotta things cos up until then I sitll felt like roddick could at least make federer work and could potentially win a set off him, I think the knowledge that roddick still couldnt pull the trigger last year really shifted the balance of believe (cos roddick was just starting to trouble him again).

Federer trains specifically to beat roddick-esque players, guys with one big shot, you just need to react to their shots and constantly keep the ball in play deep, its tough, but it requires little thinking, he out defends roddick in a big way, block back the serve, work with his most aggressive shots, slice it alot (esp to the backhand), and if he comes to the net, just go for it, you know he cant do it often enough to cause you any probs. (Ferrer is gonna love their match in the semis).

In regards to murray leaving Gilbert, Good on yah mate throw your career down the drain like Roddick did. Roddick wasted 4 good Years by leaving Gilbert and going to Goldstein, Gilbert had him moving forward taking advantage of the big serv,e he coulda been a great sv'er right now, Gilbert is a great mind, hes an annoying man but he knows his crap and Murray said last year that gilbert gave him the belief tobeat federer. Murray is also a whiny brat, thats his prob.

Lets hope rafa does well and makes the finals of the Yec, And Lets hope next year the competition grows a pair and we see Nole back to his old self, Nalby and Rafa and then some pushing from the other green horns.

Well not to disagree with you, cos it was wrong to take that time out (thats what your reffering to right)? But I dont think Gael will ever be anything more than what you saw at the Aussie, A headliner who has some of the most entertaining out of this world tennis matches we see, and probably retires when hes 25 cos of his chronic injuries. The guy was showboating last year in Paris by jumping after a smash that bounced WAYYY over his head, and then landed onm his ankle in a weird way (After just comin back from a long lay off with ankle probs). Plus he stays further behind the baseline than rafa, and the idiot says its cos he enjoys running from side to side to protect his turf (yeh so he can show off some more).

It was just a backhanded (no pun intended) comment, just like she expected it, when venus called the trainer and said that she had fatigue etc at the USO.

I've always been a Kuzy fan. Someone opened a thread that showed there were a significant number of Serena fans who liked Kuzy, but Kuzy fans hate Serena. I don't really understand it, but to each his own I guess.

I compiled the results for the first three pages in that thread that you're talking about. Here's what I came up with based on the results at that time:

Justine Fans
Of all the people who have voted Justine number one, more than half have listed Serena as their least favorite, no surprise there.

80% of their votes are given to two players as their least favorite player:
65% Serena
15% Chakvetadze


Serena Fans
Of all the people who have Serena listed as their favorite 100% have one of two of the following four players listed in their top 3. Serena fans most mentioned player in the fans top three is Ivanovic, she barely edged out Kuznetsova. Here’s who Serena fans mentioned most often in the top three:

1. Ivanovic
2. Kuznetsova
3. Jankovic (this surprised me, didn’t know Serena fans suported Jankovic)
4. Chakvetadze

Sharapova, Hantuchova, and Justine were not listed once in any Serena fans’ top 3!

Looking at the least liked by all the fan favorites.
-Chakvetadze fans have Serena leading as their least favorite followed by Sharapova.
-Hantuchova fans have Chakvetadze and Justine leading as their least liked.
-Justine fans have Chakvetadze listed after Serena as their least favorite player.
-Jankovic fans have ever player listed at least once at the bottom except for Justine. No Jankovic fan put her as their least favorite. (good to see they don’t hold a grudge)
-Kuznetsova’s couple of fans split their vote for least liked between Serena and Chakvetadze (interesting considering Kuznetsova’s popularity with Serena fans)
-Sharapova fans give the nod to Serena as their least favorite.
-Ivanovic is only listed by one person as their number one favorite up until post #50. The good news is that she’s not listed even once as anyone’s least favorite.
-Serena fans give their vote for least favorite to Sharapova followed by Justine.

True dat. But I hope Venus/Sharapova/Serena won't meet until the final. I really want another Venus - Serena final. I kind of want Serena to verse Justine in the semis just to really prove the world once again who's boss. I think Sharapova right now looks more dangerous than Justine. I think Serena's burning desire to beat Justine will REALLY be on fire this time.

Nov 18th, 2007, 12:02 PM
Ye absolutely. I would love to see Serena come alive again this year and to see Henins face when she realises shes got to play Serena at her best in the semis :lol: :p

As for Venus, I hope she has a close match wid Sharapova but comes through the better player to face Serena in the final! Then Serena should defend her title - Venus can make enough points here without stealing her sisters :lol:

Renalicious
Nov 18th, 2007, 12:40 PM
:lol: Yeah, if Serena doesn't win then her ranking will drop. If Venus will make the final but Serena wins, she will rise and so will Serena (because Venus didnt play it this year, so she has no points to defend) then Venus can win the FO in another all Williams-final :D Then, the next year Venus can win AO 2009, to complete a career grand slam. :D

serenus_2k8
Nov 18th, 2007, 01:03 PM

Realistically Venus will make AO Final, losing to Serena
She will beat Henin in Finals of RG, after beating Serena in SF
She will defend at Wimb vs Serena or Sharapova
And lose in Final of USO to Serena

Clearly the most likely outcome for 2008 :lol: dont u agree? :)

Honestly, Serena is my favorite, but if Venus wins the first 3 grand slams and it is a all Williams final at the U.S. Open, I would want Venus to win and get the calendar grand slam.

Bunk that! I like how Serena is the only player of this generation to have won a career slam. Everytime the French would roll around I used to hold my breath and pray for both Hingis and Davenport to lose. Same goes for Justine at Wimbledon. It's going to be devestating enough if Juju equals or surpases Serena in total slams- and you know we'll never hear the end of it from her fans.

As for Vee, I personally love that Serena is the more dominant Williams' sister and I hope that never changes. It's bad enough Vee won the last few times they played. I'm a greedy Serena fan, I only get true joy in her wins.

If Serena can't win a slam next year but I could pick who would win one it wouldn't be any of the vets, well I might be ok with Lindsay winning the Australian or The Us Open, but none of the other tour vets. Give it to the newbies: Vaidisova, Safarova, Ivanovic, or even Kuznetsova. It would be cool if Kuzy could pass up Sharapova as the most accomplished Russian.

Well not to disagree with you, cos it was wrong to take that time out (thats what your reffering to right)? But I dont think Gael will ever be anything more than what you saw at the Aussie, A headliner who has some of the most entertaining out of this world tennis matches we see, and probably retires when hes 25 cos of his chronic injuries. The guy was showboating last year in Paris by jumping after a smash that bounced WAYYY over his head, and then landed onm his ankle in a weird way (After just comin back from a long lay off with ankle probs). Plus he stays further behind the baseline than rafa, and the idiot says its cos he enjoys running from side to side to protect his turf (yeh so he can show off some more).

Those time outs were killer. But I agree with you. Gael hasn't proven to be a winner or more to the fact, he hasn't proven he can take that next step to be a true contender. A few matches here and there but that's it. He's fun to watch and that may end up being his legacy.

Serena Fans
Of all the people who have Serena listed as their favorite 100% have one of two of the following four players listed in their top 3. Serena fans most mentioned player in the fans top three is Ivanovic, she barely edged out Kuznetsova. Here’s who Serena fans mentioned most often in the top three:

1. Ivanovic
2. Kuznetsova
3. Jankovic (this surprised me, didn’t know Serena fans suported Jankovic)
4. Chakvetadze

Chakvedtadze's game is not interesting enough for me, however Jelena on the other hand has a game I like to watch and she has personality. That matters a lot. I was liable to dislike Jelena after the spat with Serena on court but I liked her too much by that time I couldn't even fake disliking her for the hell out it :lol:

Sharapova, Hantuchova, and Justine were not listed once in any Serena fans’ top 3!

In Justine's case I do believe that the online factor has upped the dislike factor. Dealing with her fans mirrors the apathy between the players. The funny thing with Maria is I've started to warm up to her. Her fans not one bit, but Maria when it's just her, no message boards and just her tennis, isn't bad.

Looking at the least liked by all the fan favorites.
-Justine fans have Chakvetadze listed after Serena as their least favorite player..

:lol: I'm tickled pink with this I keep on remembering certain Justine fans constantly claiming how they were dual Justine/Serena fans and in heated discussions. I never believed them then; you can't deal with people whose first instinct is to lie.


-Kuznetsova’s couple of fans split their vote for least liked between Serena and Chakvetadze (interesting considering Kuznetsova’s popularity with Serena fans)

Sad they can revel in the goodness that is Serena, but Svetlana is so cool who cares about some of her fans' feelings for Serena ;)

Well, all I want this year is to have at LEAST an all Williams final and also for the sisters to win 2 of the four slams. Oh, and also a slam in the doubles department. I would want Serena to win Wimbledon and the US Open and Venus to win the first two but realistically, I think Venus will win the AO and Serena will win Wimbledon. I hope to God Justine does not win any more slams. I want Bartoli to win a slam! :D

I love Venus to death, and when she loses or withdraws from tournaments I can get down for days. But if Venus is accross the other side of the net from Serena I WANT VENUS TO LOSE.

I think the only time I would support Venus over Serena in a Grand Slam match is during the Final of the AO, as Vee lost a nail biter to Serena there in 2003 and it's a slam where Venus hasn't had the opportunity to do as well as Serena. However seeing as Serena is defending champion this year I will be rooting for her to the death :D

I also really like the fact that Serena is the only active player to have done the Grand Slam, or the career slam. I would quite like for Venus to complete the Career Slam but the Serena Slam shall be unique :drool: Anyway I wouldn't worry about Justine overtaking Serena is Grand Slam singles titles. She's had to have the year of her career just to come close to Ree. Nothing is set in stone and who knows what next year will bring? But I think Serena will keep her lead, and win one or two slams at the very least.

I wish Jankovic could come good against Justine, ive never seen their matches to know why she hasnt, but i guess it has to do with how much shes a counterpuncher and justine uses her high lopping topspin along with some topspin angle shots to move her around alot. If only we had someone besides the sisters, whom was as bad a match up for henin as Jankovic is for Venus. Well We do in Mauresmo who has played crap all year but nearly beat henin in eastbourne, but shes no good, she loses to everyone else.

You know i dont think anyones goals of serena winning a golden slam next year, are unrealistic at all cos we all know shes more than capable, and i really think she could kill henin when at her best, but its just the fact that shes using outdated technology and a crappy trainer, causing heaps of injuries and heaps of problems in her game and confidence. Thats what makes me doubtful

Ugh, I hate Justine. I'm watching the US Open QF right now and she is sooo annoying omg, right after she wins the first set she's like 'ALLEZZZ!!!!!!!!' (aka ALLAYYYYYY) like a dumb stupid bitch.

There's something about Azarenka and Sabine I like. Azarenka ever since Miami which is weird, but Sabine mostly due to this Wimbledon. Trial and error balloon it is for Sabine :lol:

It's weird, I used to despise Sharapova...she would annoy the hell out of me, and also due to the fact that she is a great competitor and rival for Serena lol. But after her injury time-off and what not, I actually respect her a lot more. She's interesting to watch becuase she plays every point hard and I like that...so I kinda want her to start smacking up these young players coming up...and then ultimately getting smacked by Serena of course haha! On the mens side I follow my boy Nadal...dude is so intense, such passion is admirable! So over Fed, and I love to watch Nadal make him cry at every chance!!

I know some of u may not like to hear this but...I actually am starting to get interested in Henin...I always respected her game but despised her. But now, I believe that she had matured a bit and she is over that ruthless-win at all costs-behaviour. So if she isn't playing Serena, I'd be for her...especially against Vee...can't stand her game its so frustrating to watch!! LOL. But ultimately, I just can't support any other player besides Serena at that level...she is the one who brought me into the game.

All players fall into 3 categories for me:
Those I love: Serena and Venus :worship:
Those I kinda like: Lena D., Davenport, Kuzzy :o, Kim, Golovin :sad:, Azarenka
Those I don't like: Henin, Sharapova, JJ, MJMS :fiery:

Francesca Schiavone is my No.2 favourite. :worship: I love how she plays with such passion and variety and her fighting spirit is so admirable. She's a consummate professional and is always in peak physical shape too.

Venus Williams, Iveta Benesova and Patty Schnyder comprise my top-five.
