Who is it? The old guard players are dying off quick, and it kind of amazes me I can fit almost all of them in a poll. The few that aren't that I can remember at least are in "Other."

I wonder which one is next to go, as well? :devil:

Who I like most: Serena (Pierce if she comes back).

Who will leave next: Davenport (after 2008).

Patty, of course.

Amelie will probably be the next to go, unfortunately. :(

Pretty much a toss up between Davenport and Mauresmo - but I picked LD whom I feel won't be around for much longer

joćo.

I like most of them, so it's hard for me to vote. As for who will leave next, probably Davenport, Schnyder and then Mauresmo.

Lindsay :yeah:

Next to go: Mauresmo, Schnyder- anyone but Lindsay :lol: She's lasted longer than Henin, Clijsters, Myskina, she can still last a little longer. :bounce:

While there are a lot of great players I respect in that list I have to go with other. Rossana De Los Rios and Kimiko Date-Krumm would be my top two favourite veterans by healthy margin. Others that I admire would include Tanasugarn, Sugiyama, Ruano-Pascual, Mauresmo, Venus, Obziler and Craybas. Patty Schnyder has a great game also but I'm not too keen on the personality.

I'm not sure I yet regard Elena D as being a fully fledged oldie although she is getting close to that status.

Serena :hearts:

I think Amelie is the next to go :sad:

Venus or Patty or Lindsay. I can't narrow it down any more so no vote.

Also interested in Date but I can't pick her as a favorite over the others.

I didn't know Rossana was an old timer. :eek:


Sad thing about Tammy is that no other Thai player is going to be there to carry on for her.

Rossana will be 33 years old in September. She does look quite a bit younger it's true. She also has an 11 year old daughter who in 5 or 6 years time I suspect will probably start to make waves on the tennis circuit herself. :worship:

Poor Fran. :lol:

Bruno thought Venus or Elena would win this. Looks like Elena and Amelie in the lead.

I like all of them. They're all a part of the generation I grew to love so much.

The brilliant matches (The Sister and Lindsay) they played against my favourite (Martina) helped add to the legacy that makes her the great player she is known as today, just as she did for them.

They might be the 'old guard' but they are still 'in'!!! Have to go with Amelie but Lindsay and Patty very close seconds.

Venus and Serena!

I think Davenport will be the next to go. I can't imagine her playing next year but I think Mauresmo will stick it out until the bitter end!

Venus

Tier II: I actively root for these and consider myself a fan
Serena

Only Patty. Not really a fan of this old guard since Kim retired.
