Meh, I am sure there is already at least one thread on this, but since the search function doesn't work properly I decided to start a new one.

For me it has to be Schiavone and yeah Patty when she's playing someone who gives her enough time to play her game. Henin isn't around anymore, but her game too was great to watch.

Patty and Sveta, only when they are playing well, and not moonballing and being an error-machine, respectively.

Serena -- even though I'm not a fan, you can't deny she's a great player.
Bartoli -- everything about her game just looks weird. And she can hit some ridiculous angles.
A Chak -- when she's on its just pretty

I've been saying Patty for years, yet I just can't seem to embrace her :shrug: When her game is on, she is such a joy to watch. I just love the way she moves the ball.

Sharapova, Safarova, Jie Zheng, Na Li when they´re on. Mauresmo in 2005 en 2006 form. Zvonareva, Safina when it´s all clicking. Schnyder when she´s making an effort. I never liked Henin but she was awesome to watch most of the time.

There are a lot of players who's game I adore but I cannot be a fan cause their personalities are :weirdo:.

Ivanovic is the main example. I've liked her game so many times, but still, she has to either fistpump or scream like hell to make me start over again.

I can't stand Pety Caroline Schnyder, but I do enjoy watching her play. I like watching WS sisters play, despite I'm not a fan of them either (even though I don't dislike them as I used to).

patty is my favourite non favourite, i root for her all the time, not just to win but to play well so i can be entertained!! i used to love watching serena, but have gone off her over the past couple of years, i think its her attitude on court.. venus at wimbledon is great to watch, but i cant say i like watching her off the grass! but honestly any player that plays well is great to watch, even better if you can get two players playing well!

Patty because there's always something happening, she can suddenly become crazy, have a big lead and choke :)
Safarova but only when she's on. Nicole, Dinara, on On and Off days.
Also Marion. I like her game, and enjoy seeing her loosing.

It's amazing watching Serena on the rare occasion that she's playing her best. I'm not a fan of hers, although I do respect her game.

I also love watching (non-slumping) Mauresmo play. Her style of play is really refreshing.

edit: I like to watch Ana's technique, but I don't like to watch her play so much because of all the other stuff she does.
