Did You:

Gain a new favorite?
Find yourself accepting a new player?
Cheering for someone/doubles team you normally wouldn't?
Etc....



For me, I noticed how BEAUTIFUL Anne Keothavong is. Dang...I remember seeing her in the press conference during her match against Venus. Never realized she was that pretty.

Became a bigger fan of Wozniacki. I wished she would have won a few more rounds.

I also cheered for Jie Zheng to keep winning, her intention of donating all her money to earthquake ruined province in China was truly :worship::worship::worship:

As for my top favs Venus and Serena. It was finally so nice to see a WS final. Became a tennis fan in 2004 and I finally got to see live what many have seen.

Share your thoughts too! =)

Zheng! Even though she beat Nicole. :( Dementieva kinda, too. DECHY!! I lost a little respect for Serena after the final and gained a little more for Venus. I hate Chak. and Bartoli even more now.

Oh, and I agree about Keothavong. I wish she could find a way to raise her game!

I was actually cheering for Serena which is a change, because I was not a fan of hers before AO 08.

I became a bigger fan of Casey Dellacqua just because of her awesome consistancy at slams this year. She made the final at RG in doubles and she made it to Semis at Wimbledon with Dechy, who I also have become more fond of.

Dechy more than anybody else. Sympathy and admiration for her graceful defeat.

Dechy!

The way she almost beat Ana was soooo classy, oh and did anyone mention she was graceful too? Cause she is.

Dechy was graceful for sure. It was so sad for her as she had a really good opportuinity to do better at Wimbledon.

Also I learnt that Bartoli was kind of a fluke last year. She hasnt impressed since her final appearance - maybe she was just too overwhelmed but her results this year have been :help:

I like Dechy more than I did before. I dislike Jankovic a little less, but instead of flat out hate she's just kind of a pest when she's primed to beat a top player at a slam to me now. So no worries fellow JJ haters. :hug:

If her comments were true, I lost some respect for Dementieva. If not, then it's water under the bridge.

Ummmmmm.....I gained a lot of respect for Kudryavtseva's post-match comments. Very ballsy. Good on her!

I'm lost for anything else at the moment.

Zheng, Dechy and Aga earned some more respect from me :)
