I've never seen #62 Cirstea play. She's been on T.V/livestream once or twice but I never bothered to watch her for some reason. :shrug:

So what about you? Oh plus clips like these don't count. :p

I'm talking a couple of games on a match screen at least.

Highest ranked player I've never seen is probably A Bondarenko. I've seen highlights of her doubles matches but not in singles i don't think.



Bartoli. I know she has a two handed forehand and stuff, but I've never seen her play and I have no interest in seeing her either:shrug:

she played mirza in the 1st round of dunai in a night match that was live on british eurosport, sania was up a set and serving for the match i think when she got cramp and had to retire in the 3rd set. her 2nd round was also on british eurosport against ivanovic when she twisted her ankle whilst serving for the match but she managed to carry on and finish the job!

It was Doha. And Govortsova was serving to stay in the match when Ana sprained her ankle and I almost thought Govortsova was going to win 3-6 1-5 ret. :help: Luckily after Ana got back on court it was 3 HUGE forehand winners in a row and the match was hers. :bounce:

Hmmm...I'd say for me it's actually Peer...I just watched a few points of her against Chakvetadze at USO last year...boring.

I don't think I've ever seen #35 Govortsova :o

She bashes the ball as hard as she possibly can. Her serve is vulnerable and she likes to make high-pitched "uh!" grunts when she hits the ball. There, you've watched her.

Shepster
Jun 22nd, 2008, 06:25 PM
Kleybanova - apparantly I've seen Pironkova and Govortsova as I definitely saw JJ and Henin's early round matches at the US Open but I can't remember a thing about them, whereas the performances of Julia Goerges and Iona Raluca Olaru against big names in the same tournament have really stayed with me.

Really surprised about the Szavay mentions, she was all over the tv around September with her New Haven run, then the US Open followed by Beijing, but then ... if you weren't watching that month then it's not really surprising I suppose. Then of course the run in Paris. Hmm, yes it's surprising.

I may have seen Azarenka play a year or two ago when she was just barely starting out but I alway get her name confused with Kutuzova or whichever other player was getting beaten silly by her father. Either way, the memory didn't stand out.

And in real life the only players I've seen play so far are Chakvetadze, Hantuchova, Vaidisova, Mirza and Krajicek. But I hope to see a lot more at this year's US Open.
