Yes, I have a love/hate relationship with X. Malisse. He's so talented but... you know, he's just Malisse...

But when he plays with Olivier in doubles, he seems a completely different player. Also in Davis Cup.

I dislike Elena Dementieva. A lot. But if she were to play Fed Cup, I would root for her. But then again, I am not Russian by birth, so if you mean are there any Americans I dislike, that's a whole different story...

Feb 24th, 2005, 02:07 PM
wta: none whatsoever.
atp: Alex Bogdanovich. Prolly a good fella but pity he's playing for the teabags.

I have no business disliking my country men when there is a host of others to hate, (just kidding) but I will admit Hewitt does push the boundaries for me.

No :D

I love all chinese!

Feb 24th, 2005, 02:27 PM
Jane O'Donoghue from my country, she annoys the crap out of me

Feb 24th, 2005, 02:31 PM
I don't hate them. I get bored with them. I'm mainly thinking about Wayne Arthurs and Mark Philippoussis here. I don't see the big deal about Arthurs apart from his serve. He's well over 30 and not likely to get any better than he is. What's all the fuss about? Philippoussis doesn't like his fans or the media to discuss him, so that's that. He's just a train wreck - "move along, nothing to see here." I don't feel bored by or dislike any of the Aussie female players. They are generally good-natured and spunky, young women. Even that never-aging dynamo, Nicole Pratt. However, if we're going all the way back to Margaret Court, well, let's not go there and just say that as a tennis champion she was a great one and noteworthy of little else aside from that.

I hate Domachowska

Feb 24th, 2005, 02:36 PM
There are some of them that I don't like THAT much.
Some are funny, some sre stupid, but that's not the reason for hating them :cool:

Feb 24th, 2005, 02:46 PM
So far No.

Feb 24th, 2005, 02:50 PM
NO, I like Luxembourg's three players Claudine Schaul, Anne Kremer and Mandy Minella. :D :)

Feb 24th, 2005, 02:56 PM
I wish I had any players from my country full stop.

Feb 24th, 2005, 02:57 PM
I have never liked Jennifer Capriati, but I'd pull for her if she played...I dunno...Satan? :shrug:

Feb 24th, 2005, 02:58 PM
Nope. At this point, the canadians players need all the support they can get;)

All of them, except Bally, but she's from Ukraine. :)

Feb 24th, 2005, 04:11 PM
I don't like Baijot because she's lazy and unprofessional :o

Martian Jeza
Feb 24th, 2005, 04:20 PM
No. But I don't care about them would I have answered but that's not in the poll options ;)

Feb 24th, 2005, 04:49 PM
I've never liked Jennifer, really. Probably because of her rivalry with Serena and her bad attitude. Also, Jill Craybas has always bothered me! lol

Feb 24th, 2005, 04:57 PM
I've never liked Serena.

Feb 24th, 2005, 05:48 PM
I have never liked Jennifer Capriati, but I'd pull for her if she played...I dunno...Satan? :shrug:
I couldn't have said it better myself :worship:

Feb 24th, 2005, 05:49 PM
I don't hate Maureen Drake...but I'm simply not a fan ;)

Feb 24th, 2005, 05:52 PM

I had a feeling Satan was an American.

Feb 24th, 2005, 07:14 PM
I dislike Capriati.

Feb 24th, 2005, 07:27 PM
I like and support everybody!!! :D

Feb 24th, 2005, 07:41 PM
Yes!! I can't stand the Williams sisters (more so Serena than Venus)!

Feb 24th, 2005, 07:46 PM
i do'nt like Justine :o

Feb 24th, 2005, 07:49 PM
Not a fan of Peer.

Mrs. Peel
Feb 24th, 2005, 07:52 PM
Not fond of Capriati but I have rooted for her

Feb 24th, 2005, 08:09 PM
I like all Aussies.

Feb 24th, 2005, 08:11 PM
I also really do not like Jennifer Capriati; her attitude on the court really bothers me!

Feb 24th, 2005, 08:29 PM
i dislike Sharapova

Feb 24th, 2005, 08:39 PM
Venus and Laura Granville

Feb 24th, 2005, 08:44 PM
i don't like mauresmo......because her game is so boring....

Tati & Dani
Feb 24th, 2005, 08:46 PM
i like them all , only callens not and clijsters a little bit, she's strange , she doesn't have the winning mentally like Justine Henin.

Feb 24th, 2005, 09:41 PM
Unless you know these players personally, it's pretty hard to answer yes, unless you're bordering on emotional problems.

Feb 24th, 2005, 09:43 PM
To be honest I don't care about players from my country. I don't really know what to choose.

Feb 24th, 2005, 09:49 PM
I hate Domachowska

why? :wavey: :)

Feb 24th, 2005, 10:00 PM
Dislike Jcap and Raymond.......never root for them

Feb 25th, 2005, 04:37 PM
I dont have alot of time for Mark Philipoussis... he annoys me the way he plays and relies so heavily on his serve, and hes pretty much a tool in general,I only go for him if he's in Davis cup.... I love all of the girls they rock! I also think Todd Reid is a bit of a try-hard :o but i still cheer for him

Josh B.
Feb 25th, 2005, 04:48 PM
I think there are some english players i dislike, due to their awful play!

Feb 25th, 2005, 05:09 PM
I dislike Capriati.

Feb 25th, 2005, 06:39 PM
i dislike Tommy Haas

Feb 25th, 2005, 06:41 PM

Feb 25th, 2005, 06:59 PM
In My case the question could be shortened to - Are there Players from Your Country?

Youngsters coming on though!

Feb 25th, 2005, 08:28 PM
The only Canadian player that I just cannot stand : Maureen Drake... She's really not representative of what Canadian players are...

Feb 25th, 2005, 08:46 PM
Tim Henman!

Feb 25th, 2005, 09:15 PM

Feb 25th, 2005, 11:13 PM
Yes. I really hate Capriati and Davenport. I would be really upset if either ever won another grand slam. I also don't like Serena but can accept it when she wins.

Feb 25th, 2005, 11:27 PM
I don't like the Williams sisters at all.

Feb 25th, 2005, 11:32 PM
I hate mauresmo. I dislike her game but unfortunately eurosport france can't stop showing her matches :mad: :rolleyes:

Feb 26th, 2005, 01:36 AM
I dislike 99.99% of the Aussies. :ras:

I only support Monique Adamczak, Kristen Van Elden, and Natasha Kersten.

Feb 26th, 2005, 01:52 AM
I'm not a fan of Venus. I get annoyed by people who do the same thing over and over again. She hasn't become the versatile player that Serena is. There is not Plan B for Venus. So until she finds out what will work for her when she's down a set and a break to someone she doesn't know, she won't be back in the top 3.

Feb 26th, 2005, 01:53 AM
I don't like Henman or Rusedski.

Henman always says the same things after losing and before tournaments, and Rusedski is always whinging. They also take up a lot of TV coverage with there awful matches!

Feb 26th, 2005, 03:26 AM
don't care too much about the men except Reid.

Women - dislike Stubbs.

Feb 26th, 2005, 03:32 AM
Nicole Pratt, Renee Stubbs, Jaslyn Hewitt and Christina Wheeler.

Feb 26th, 2005, 06:28 AM
How can you not like Maureen Drake?! She is great for tennis!

Feb 26th, 2005, 06:32 AM
I don't like Abigail Spears. She is quite ugly.

Feb 26th, 2005, 08:20 AM
I like all swiss players :)
but gagliardi isn't really my fave :o

Feb 26th, 2005, 08:31 AM
Unfortunately I dont think there are any pros from my country of origin, I mean Mary Joe was born there but she played as an American. Maybe in the challengers but I highly doubt it. quite sad!:sad:
