What player makes you see the entire match without zapping once cause it's so damn exciting and enjoyable to watch.

For me it's without a single doubt the girl in my sig.When she's playing I just can't take my eyes of it,coz you know even if she plays bad there's going to be a couple of genious shots and in the end I think that it was worth all the waiting.

Unless someone's having a really awful day and stinkin' up the joint, it's the commentators that make me want to change channels. The players I"m usually happy to watch.

No one. I zap during the commercial breaks because they are at every change of ends and I get very irritable watching the same ad every ten minutes :explode:. I always zap back though, especially to Monica :hearts:.

I can watch anyone on the womens tour without any problems. I enjoy watching tennis no matter whos playing (though i like to watch some players more than others). We get little tennis coverage here so i enjoy it when its on.
Some mens matches are boring to watch though. We get too much mens tennis coverage, especially of Hewitt and Phillipoussis, so i dont watch sometimes when they are on.

justine, serena, kim. venus, well, i enjoy watching the other play more cuz when i see her hit her first serve into the net all the time i feel like ripping my hair out.

Honestly none. Even my favorites every now and then make me feel like changing the channels, especially when they are winning easily.
Generally like I said in an other thread, I get bored of anything where one is totally dominating the other. In watching women's tennis, the most important thing for me is the outcome cuz I really don't pay attention to their skills or technique. I watch men's to enjoy watching "tennis". That said, I enjoy women's tennis more, cuz I don't have any particular fav on men's tour.

Serena( when she´s on, no one is better at hitting winners), Venus( her movement over the court is stunning, Justine( she can do some amazing things with the ball).

Venus and Serena (in that order), ESPECIALLY when they're killing some poor soul 6-2, 6-1 in 40 minutes. Carnage on the tennis court is a good thing. ;)

Monica because she never gets tentative and no matter what situation she is in she keeps gritting her teeth and showing that shes not gonna be put away too easily.

Well as much as I like Monica, I don't think it's always the case with her just like any other player.
The match where she was double-bagelled by Hingis, she was very very tentative..

it´s great to watch matches between the best players in the world - players between number 1-20 in the ranking and their matches against each other.often there are really close matches and high quality tennis.so normally,i don´t zap to other channels.for sure,especially kim´s matches are the most important ones like you can see in my sig

Lindsay when she's on fire there is not better play to watch and there the added advantage of if she on fire you're not sitting there for long either usually about 50 minutes or less.

Nastya for me!

This girl has such an aura around her.
Her game is also a pure joy to watch for those who like smart tennis and beautiful shot selection

I clearly remember an article saying "Her game is one of the most watchable on tour"!

Serena and Amelie always, Venus when shes playing well (movement is SICK), & Elena Dementieva.

No Name Face
Oct 13th, 2005, 09:40 PM
Elena Dementieva --- I rarely get to see her on American TV so when I do, I watch the whole match unless she's losing. Sometimes I can't watch.

I rarely change channels when the WS are playing or Elena Bovina (who is 10x's rarer to see on American TV than Dementieva)

From the ATP:
Safin, Blake, Agassi, or Gasquet even though sometimes men's matches get boring...I've watched full matches by these four guys

I'll update my choices from my previous post.

Actually, if I watch women's tennis "live" then no player is zapped; but if it's a match that I know the outcome of (they air tournaments later here) then I have zapped matches where I know someone get's routed.


Usually if I watch a match "live" I expect to see the whole thing, and want to see it to the conclusion.

Oct 14th, 2005, 01:49 AM
I used to be glued to Martina Hingis. I thought her game was just stunning.

My favorite (Tanasugarn) doesnt get much coverage, so if she's on I have to watch because I don't know when I'll see her again.

I just hope her brief showing on USA tv at the Open this year against Myskina isn't the last time she's on tv. :(

In all honesty, I can only watch my favourites.

It's weird, even if the tennis is great, if I don't like either player, I don't care. Like this year's Wimbledon Final... high quality, incredibly dramatic... but neither player was one of my favourites, so I didn't give a damn. It's really different to the men, where I'll watch almost anything with interest.

Venus Williams.
Obviously Alicia Molik too.

all the old skool drama queens basically. U knew they were gonna play well to win and if they lost there was gonna be some am dram. Great entertainment.

The members of my eternal fanship (see sig). The problem comes when more than one of them are playing at the same time.

The only player I can honestly say this for is Justine Henin-Hardenne. :worship:

Although judging by some of her dramatic scorelines over the past few years Elena Dementieva might qualify for this as well.
