Who was your previous absolute favorite before the one you have now? (If you've switched at all)

Hantuchova used to be my favorite player, back when she was still top 5.

Tati & Dani

Swiss Miss. My fave of all time. Hasn't changed. :)

Active players are hard for me to pic. But I don't like jumping on and off bandwagons. :angel:

then: Serena
now: Dementieva and Serena (I like Dementieva a LITTLE more only because I like rooting for people who haven't won everything like Serena but honestly I respect and admire Serena more as a player)

Evonne Goolagong.
Although I wasn't much into women's tennis pre-86 because it is a sissy sport.

When I first started to really follow tennis in 2001, the Williams sisters were my reason for watching!! At first I was more of a Serena fan, but when the Serena Slam ended, I became a Venus fan. I just like her game better than Serena's when it is all working!!

I may have missed it live, but I have seen plently of Graf matches as well as Seles matches, Evert and Martina, Billie Jean, Evonne, all the greats. And yes Steffi was amazing!! (okay I said it!!)

Mary Pierce will always be my sentimental all time favourite as she was the player that brought me to tennis. She is now in equal or second favourite to Masha but i will always love her.

Davenport's always been my #1. But the Belgians used to be two of my favorites before they started winning too much for my liking. :lol:

Amelie caught my imagination at the AO 1999. Anything before that is too long ago to remember. However, I did like Kournikova a lot as well during that period (while she was playing). Dani I've liked since the AO 2002 when she caught my imagination with the cocktail dress and her cool attitude on court.
