Dani, after she started Pounding Patty last fall.
The Contessa, after her ordeal with her mother's cancer last year.

Conversly, I used to like PP B4 I found out all the stuff about her and the :devil:

or the contrary? It happens to me, with a certain player I used to like (well, I'm not exactly a hater, I just don't like her... and often cheer for her opponents :lol: )

Yes, I used to dislike Tatiana Golovin, but now I like her.

I was a Justine hater for a long time, and then I slowly started to warm to her just a little bit ... and right as I was about to stop being a hater of hers, she goes and pulls the Belly. :lol:

Oct 21st, 2006, 11:23 PM
Myskina, because she used to always beat ElenaD. Now I love her, regardless of whether she beats Elena or not.

I wouldn't say I was a Venus hater, but I remember not liking her that much. Now I'd say I'm a big fan of hers.

I really disliked Vaidisova around the time of RG, but now I kinda like her :)

That reminds me, i hated Nicole after she beat Vee :sad: but after Moscow i like her :D, but usually those who beat lenaD in big important matches i pretty much never like again :o AKA Myskina(not as much) and Kuznetsova

I have love/hate fanship with Sharapova.. depending on who she plays and how she plays. The bitchier she is, the more I like her :hearts:

Same here! I forgot about Kim, I root for her now.

Nicole seems pretty cool. I've always kind of had my eye on her since she came on to the scene back in 2004. ;)

I have an up and down relationship with Kim. I have periods of times when I hate her(when she plays Lindsay :tape: ) and then I have times when I root for her. Where I am not a fan of hers, I do appreciate her more now than I used to.

Oct 21st, 2006, 11:41 PM
it's happened a lot to me. I used to hate Kim, Momo, Venus(during the Williams era, but I liked her before/after then) and Serena. I love them now except for Serena, I'm just indifferent to her. I liked Justine until I found out how she's too afraid to get embarrassed by her opponent ie. vs. Momo she withdrew when she had no chance of winning and denied Amelie the satisfaction of actually winning the title instead of having it handed to her.

I used to dislike Kim too, but I've warmed a lot to her over recent years, I like her more and more as time goes by, for some reason though I just hate it when Lindsay loses to Mary Pierce, I don't know why :lol:

Maybe because Mary denied Lindsay the YEC last year, and, err, RG :unsure: :lol:

Mary is cool. She's one of my secondary faves ;) . I wasn't upset with RG, but I was pissed as pissed gets with that YEC match. I punched the wall after that one. :tape: But, I'm with you, Lindsay would have had great odds in winning the YEC against Mauresmo if she had advanced.

Nope, but I've done the opposite.

I used to like Serena, and now I dislike her.
I used to like Maria, and now I dislike her.

I'm sorry if I gave you a heart attack from the shock of my previous statements.

Justine Fan

I used to hate manliness of Mauresmo, then I realised there not much to hate in her. It's the personality and game that matter.

Justine Fan
Oct 22nd, 2006, 12:11 AM
Ive also done the opposite

Used to lurve Serena ...... not now :tape:

Used to like Kim ...... not now :tape:

Always loved Justine and always will, no matter what! :inlove:

It's mainly your heart what tells you about your true feelings. There is no logic behind that. However the whole thing still looks kinda weird to me. Pity that you don't like Daniela anymore.

The only way I turn from hater to a fan is if i see a player really working in the area I feel is their weakness.
I saw that in Kim and her backhand this summer.
The same thing with Roddick and his backhand.
So right now I'm a fan of both on a trial basis.

You think Kim's weakness is her backhand? :eek:

Oct 22nd, 2006, 05:53 AM
i usually didn't like lindsay whenever she beat kim in some important matches (particularly last year at roland garros & wimbledon). i really dunno why? because i show alot of respect 4 lindsay & her game. but that didn't mean that i hated lindsay in every single match she played.

i was actually cheering 4 lindsay when she faced serena & venus in last year's aussie open & wimby finals. i probably cheered 4 lindsay at that time because she didn't win a slam title 4 ages & that i wasn't particularly fond of the sisters. but that was like a year ago though.

i've never hated kim 4 once in my entire life. i've always been quite fond of her when i 1st saw her play from day 1.

it's a great shot her backhand, but it's not as good as her forehand i would say.

I quite despised Santangelo for bieng a boring player from the country where tennis cannot go wrong, but she played some great tennis, backed it up with hearty play and charectar, as well as a unique game-style, with her step-up the court backhand down the line before drawing into the net.
so for proving to me she HAS an intresting game, i realized i was just against her because i admire the single handed backhanders from her country so much that i automaticly set her as a level under them.
now i know much better - MEC is way more boring and un-italian. :lol:

Oct 22nd, 2006, 12:01 PM
Yep.

I used to hate Sveta coz she always beat me faves :p but then she joined forces with my fave Molik and created TEAM ACE, and I've been a fan ever since. Even tho they arent a team much anymore. Go Sveta! :D
