Who are your other WTA favorites, outside of JJ?

Mine are: Mauresmo, Henin, Peer, & Chakvetadze. I'm also somewhat partial to a few others: Safarova, Vesnina, & Ivanovic.

I don't like Justine as a person, but her game is fantastic. Also I love to watch Safarova, Li Na, Alona Bondarenko and Sam Stosur

Unlike other major sports, in tennis we only get to see
stars, more stars and incidental views at lower class,
rookies and teens zooming up the charts. Who knows how
many years before one can take a deeper look (from a comfy
chair) at players like Alexa Glatch, Anna Tatishvili or
even Caroline Wozniacki.

Rep points of the blinkering spectator go to.....

Anna Chakvetadze.
Finally one player coming to the rescue of meditative tennis.
Eccentric diagonales and nonrational anticipation don't tell
the full story of rare mystic on the tour.

Elena Dementieva.
Mean groundstrokes make a perfect antidote to the soothing
effect of her persona and visage.

Dominika Cibulkova.
Legs of a weightlifter, but face is divine. Tenacity of a pit-bull
with a lockjaw is a bonus. Expect her to drive crazy the rest
of the tour.

Hingis, Mauresmo, Zvonareva and Golovin.

I'm also keeping an eye on the likes of Paszek and Azarenka, who I would like to see do well.

I only tend to root for one player in a hardcore way :lol: It used to be Kim since 2000, but now JJ obviously.

But, I like Hingis, Ivanovic, Mirza, Peer & Safarova. I like the look of Pascek as well.

Ok, normally I would say, I haven't got another fav player besides Jelena. But if I should name somebody, then it would be Justine Henin. For me she has such a great style and she's also what I call a nearly perfect allround-player. Good on all surfaces, with no real weaknesses and a unique and beautiful one-handed backhand.

Chakvetadze, Kirilenko, Ivanovic, Mirza, Hingis, Paszek and Safarova - though none of them come close to JJ in my eyes!! :worship:

Past players (are we allowed to mention those?!) who I still consider favourites are Seles, Graf, Capriati :)

These are some reasons why I like Justine as well. I don't have the uber-FAN response to her like I do JJ...maybe because she's already a proven slam winner. But her game to me is just divine. From a purely technical standpoint right now, she's my favorite player...but JJ wins in all the other categories.

Past players (are we allowed to mention those?!) who I still consider favourites are Seles, Graf, Capriati :)

It's sometimes hard for me to remember past favorites, but I'd definitely say Navratilova & Seles, as I feel they were so innovative at their respective times. Graf was a player I kind of loved-hated...not unlike Serena today...she was so dominant I found it hard to root for her, but her game was magnificent.

Some lightyears behind JJ maybe Hantuchova and then it gets difficult. Maybe I would watch Dani more often if she wouldn't always wear that "thing" on her head while playing.

I like almost everyone but my favourites are Vesnina, Kirilenko, Sharapova, Myskina, Dementieva & Golovin (yeah im shallow and superficial, i only like the pretty ones :lol:). Of course i support the swedish players the most but they all play like crap right now so it feels pointless even mentioning them. For some reason i hardly like any american players. Chanda Rubin is the only american player ive ever really liked (i dont count Martina Navratilova and Monica Seles as americans). Jana Novotna is my all-time favourite player.

I've never ventured here before, so first I'd like to say: I heart Jelena! She's so fiesty and is always so cheerful....... Ok my other favourite is Hingis and that's about it lol. I also like Myskina but she seems to have disappeared.

And yes.., I didn't answer the topic.

Jelana, Ana, Monika, Dokic...obviously ...
I can only add Kim Clijsters and Chriss Evert. I like Martina now with her comments...but never liked her on the court

Hmm, good question. I don't support anyone nearly as much as Jelena, but I miss Kim a lot! And Capriati :( I also like Hingis, Sharapova, Ivanovic, Vaidisova, Venus and Davenport (most of the time! Last week being the exception!)

I miss Kim Clijsters a lot :sad:
I like also Amélie Mauresmo
and I am also a big fan of the belgium girl Yanina Wickmayer :worship:

and most of the time i'm also cheering for the girls in my signature :p

Jelena, Ana and Lindsay are my main favourites for years now. I've grown very much for Kirilenko lately :drool:, also I love to watch Martina, Kim, Amelie, Mary...

Sharapova and Jankovic are my top fav's. No other players come even remotely close to them.

After that Kirilenko, Zvonareva and Vesnina follow.

I like Mauresmo a lot, not so much her playing style as her personality. She seems such a nice and normal person, I've never seen her having that killer look in her eyes while on court, which is one of the things I dislike in sport the most... ah, well, I guess I lack competitive spirit :lol:
I also like Sveta (for similar reasons), but I also like her playing style (when she plays well).
Dementieva's game is to my liking, too.
I can't say I like Justine, but I most certainly like her tennis, it's so versatile, not boring.
I like Serena because of her drama-queenness and fashion style :) Speaking of fashion styles, Bethanie Mattek is such a darling! :D
In general, I like players who are not too much powerful in terms of strength. I don't like matches with too much aces and short rallies..well, I guess I'm talking about serve/volley game. That's why I'm not a fan of Sharapova, Ana, Vaidisova. Well, I'm far from a tennis expert, maybe I'm just talking crap. :lol:

^^ Wouldn't blame ya.

Now if only JJ, Tati, and Kuzy can get healthier and start winning more matches, I (make that we for these players' fans) would be all set.

Then: Chakvetadze, Hantuchova, Sharapova, Mauresmo
And: Vesnina, Zvonareva, Cibulkova, Safarova, Zi Yan, Vaidisova
Might have been easier to list those I don't like!

Gail Emms (fun-loving badminton player - is it sacrilege to use the word BADMINTON on these forums?:lol:

In fact ~whisper it~ Gail is vying with JJ for my affections...:eek:

Maybe I should migrate to the Baminton forums...:lol:

My ultimate favourites are Jelena and Maria Sharapova. ♥ Then wayy after them:
Ana Ivanovic, Tatiana Golovin, Dominika Cibulkova. And I have also been liking Anna Chakvetadze and Vera Zvonareva recently.
