Doubles probably, but honestly none of them too closely. I like to follow doubles when players I like (Venus, Serena, Hingis, etc.) are playing, which is rare :sad:

I occasionally look @ ITF & Juniors to see who is doing well and for big tournaments...

Probably ITF women. Don't really follow any of them though.

Maybe I'll play PTF so I can be more up to date on Challengers. :)

WTA doubles, but I don't follow that much now as most of my favs don't play it anymore.

I don't follow ITF tournaments at all

Marina was a top 5 junior not too long ago and Ellen was a top 30, while Sacha Jones is a current top 15 :)

And I wouldn't know any of them if they weren't in your signature.

Well will you be following the ASB Classic? Marina Erakovic is in the maindraw and Ellen Barry is in the qualifying draw - Sacha got a maindraw wc but had to turn it down just a few days ago after a chronic back injury

Interesting that in the poll most people are saying Wta doubles - I wonder how many of you who said that could actually name the top 5 doubles players in the world (without looking it up first).

this is what i currently know about the current state of doubles (other than the super obvious -- like no one playing, etc.)

lisa and sammy are the top

zi yan and jie zheng are quite good too
so are rennae and cara

2nd year in a row that ai and daniela got edged out of yec

i forgot the other team that qualified for yec... schiavone? ???

i know srebotnik is good
penneta and dementieva are decent
asagoe wasnt bad recently either

ivanovic and kirilenko are around the top 50
jankovic is also around the top 50

vania king and kostanic are around the top 50 as well lol.


i think thats the extent of my doubles knowledge, and i follow that one the most out of those 3.

Following doubles more than ITF/juniors doesn't mean that you follow it obsessively, just that you're more likely to scan the doubles draws/results than the ITFs/juniors.

not true, you just posted the poll in the wrong place.

90% of GM knows nothing other than top 50 (make that top 30) plus a handful of other players

ITF most recently anyway only 75k, 50k and 25k though no satelittes, followed by Doubles. I mostly follow doubles at the slams and maybe a few tournies here and there where lenaD plays :). Least would probably be junions. I only ever look at a few results at the slams. Juniors don' really have that much bearing on whether players are going to be top singles player or not i think

Definitely ITF (singles). I follow only one team in WTA doubles, the wonderful Paola and Vivi. :hearts: But a lot of the fun went out of the doubles after the incomparable Natasha Zvereva, as well as my all-time favorite team, Lindsay and Corina, stopped playing. :bigcry:

None, to be honest.

I guess WTA dubs, but only if Vee/Ree was playing.

I think Mixed Doubles should be an option, I followed that at Wimby '06.
