After yesterday, I've seen Michaella Krajicek and Kim Clijsters three times.

I've seen Krajicek playing at Antwerp this year (doubles SF) and last year at Hasselt (doubles F) and yesterday also at Hasselt (singles SF).

The three times I saw Clijsters play were each time at Hasselt: QF in 2004, F in 2005 and SF in 2006.

I guess everyone has a player who they see frequently when they go a tournament, no?

Justine Henin-Hardenne and Amelie Mauresmo. :p A grand total of 4 times (Justine - against Myskina, Capriati, Seles, and Bondarenko or was it Doushevina?) I'm not even a Justine fan or anything, but everytime I go to Dubai, she wins the tournament so I end up seeing her the most. ;)I've seen Amelie against Krasnoroutskaya, Nagyova, Seles, and Kuznetsova. The Henin-Seles and Henin-Capriati matches were classics. :worship:

Venus and Serena...more times than I can count. I have visited their home several times and Venus decorated one of my best friend's home who recently moved to West Palm Springs. As a matter of fact I put Venus in contact with my friend and her husband when they were almost finish building their home. Vee did a fantastic job with their home.

The player I've seen most is Sophie Ferguson. I saw a bit of her win over someone at the Australian open 2005. I've seen her at two challenger tournaments and I saw her get squashed by Petrova at this years Oz open.

Others I've seen more than once live (all at Oz open).

ElenaL: Saw her play someone in 2004 and her 2 singles matches this year.

Kraijeck: Saw her great round 2 match v Patty in 2005 and the round 2 vs Mirza this year.

Camille Pin: Witnessed her being destroyed by Serena in 2005 and her win vs Diaz-Olivia this year.

Diaz-Olivia: Saw her beat Dulko in a "derby" match in 2005 and the above one vs Pin this year.

VeraD: Saw her beat VeraZ in 2005 and a bit vs Castano this year.

Lauren Breadmore: Saw her play Kuznetsova at this year's oz and at a challenger last year.

Sharapova: Saw her play a doubles match with Tanasurgan in 2004(!), plus her match vs Lindsay Lee-Waters in 2005.

I also saw Barbara Schett vs Santalego in 2004 and her last 2 matches vs Tiffany Welford and Hantuchova in 2005.

Dementieva signed my Cocks hat last year at Charleston and she looked fab at the Advanta Championships players party.

Lisa Raymond who can get moody but she's usually nice to her players.

Patty Schynder.
She's such a nice player to her fanbase.

Lindsay Davenport.
It's just a joy to see her at as many tournis I can go to.
To me Lindsay is the most responsive to her fans rooting her on.

Mary Pierce.
I went on a date with a sexy mofo a couple of years ago at the US Open.
He didn't know much about Mary but he knew enough to comment that she had a nice ass. :tape:
I was inches away from her at Charleston last year and watched her play Li Na at the US Open this year.
I was rooting for Li Na and she did come through.
I hope and pray that I will be able to see Mary one more time.

Laura Granville, but i cant really rememeber how many times, quite alot though :D

Nov 5th, 2006, 06:34 PM
I'm pretty sure it's Amélie :hearts: among the girls: I saw her in Rome for the final in 2001, semis and final in 2003, semis and final in 2005 and in her first round match at Flushing Meadows 2005! (I hope I didn't make too much confusion with the years at the Foro Italico :o )

As for the ATP, I'll definitely have to say Rafa :hearts: whom I've seen in 5 official matches, including a 5-set win over Federer and I've caught him training at least three times :bounce:

My biggest regret is never having seen Mary in an official match, though I've seen her hit like every time I've been to a tournament! And obviously, next to that, having seen my beloved Jen only on one occasion :sad:

I can't count the emails I have send to her and I got from her.
I am just happy to be her webmaster, and I am so sorry she has retired :(

I hope she will have a nice birthday next Tuesday! :)

Vamos María! :)

Although I did not try to see her so much, for the longest
time I could not get away from M. Navratilova. Every time
I turned around at a tournament in California, there she was!
Now it seems that I see Hantuchova at every tournament, on
every practice court, all the time.

As for people I deliberately seek out: Mauresmo, Kuznetsova,
Safina, Daniilidou, Safin and Federer top my list.

Henin in AO 2004:
I watched her play against someone in Vodafone Arena

This year:
I was supposed to watch her play again in VA, but I went to the training courts to see who was there. I saw Franny first, then all of the sudden, Ju was there :)
Then I saw her match I think 2 times, and then another practice session. She wow-ed the crowd during the practice session. ;)
