Sucks when your fave loses early in a slam :sad:. For me, I'm used to just finding other players to root for since my faves suck or are retired(Venus, Davenport, Kim)

So for all you Venus, Mauresmo, Dokic, Chakvetadze, Vaidisova, Hantuchova fans and others, who are you rooting for now?

I'm rooting for Serena, Safina and Kuznetsova. Serena will always give us goodmatches and she used to be one of my faves. I want Safina to finally win a slam..and Kuzy.. well she's been one of my favorites since 2003/2004 but it's been so depressing being a fan of hers, I can't follow both her and Venus at the same time, it'd be too much :lol:

Maria, JJ, Sveta.

My faves haven't lose yet but one of them will very soon :sad: so hopefully the other will go all the way (Ana or Vika). Marion already lost so Elena is hope to make it through in the bottom half. Should none of these players progress I'll root for Domi to do some damage but of all the remaining contenders, Serena is the only one I'd be happy to see win it.

Serena for sure. I think she might even have more motivation now to win.

I still have: Ivanovic, S.Williams, Szavay, Jankovic, Safina, A.Radwanska, and Cibulkova.

Hell, I even might be coming back around to liking Sharapova again. :help: Never thought that would happen in a million years. :lol:

I'll be happy with whoever wins as long as it's not you know who. (Or Azarenka, she's just a hot petulant mess. :o)

May 30th, 2009, 02:20 AM
Well of my top favourites, Venus Jela and Danka are all out. I still have Masha, but for who knows how much longer! :lol:

I am happy for Agnes though, and I hope she can at least make a quarterfinal where I hope she'll lose to Masha.

I would also like to see Serena go far, and I hope Cirstea making a semifinal would be pretty good.

May 30th, 2009, 02:23 AM
Ivanovic and Dementieva.

Dementieva is still in. When she loses in seven hours, I will be rooting for Serena. When she loses, I will be horrified that any of the remaining players will be winning a slam.

I could tolerate Jankovic winning.

You're forgetting someone. I know you'll be rooting for Ana as well. LOL.

I don't expect too much from my favourites TBH. But so far so good. I hope JJ, Ana and Serena reach at least the QFs though.

You're forgetting someone. I know you'll be rooting for Ana as well. LOL.

Ivanovic winning the title beating Azarenka/Suarez Navarro, Safina, Sharapova, Dementieva/Williams/Jankovic would be super impressive. It would just not be a happy weekend for me, that's all. :lol:

If Sharapova won, that'd be cool, but it's just...people just don't win grand slams after a nine month injury time out, especially when it's their second event. And I just remembered Radwanska is in the draw too, and I'd love to see her win a slam one day. So Dementieva/Williams/Radwanska, my hopeful but very unrealistic trifecta.

But yeah, please, Cibulkova, Szavay, Safina, Kuznetsova, Wozniacki...go away. :sad:

Shvedbarilescu
May 30th, 2009, 03:31 AM
Gee...not many left I really like a lot but at this stage of a slam that's not too surprising. Still a few left. I'm rooting for Martinez-Sanchez, Suarez-Navarro, Cirstea, Cibulkova and of course Radwanska. Out of the top 10, I think I'd probably be happiest with a Safina v Jankovic final, with Dinara winning. If Dementieva won here that would be cool too. I want to see a debut slam champion for sure.

Horizon
May 30th, 2009, 03:34 AM
Ana please win :sobbing:

It's been a tough ride for the past 12 months :sad:

Serena.

If Serena does not win, I am cheering for Kuznetsova.

Thirdly would be Safina. She is playing so well. She would be a great #1 and role model for the sport if she can keep this up.

Tennisstar86
May 30th, 2009, 07:23 AM
I dont even know who im rooting for anymore....Heres who i would like to root for, but cant.

Serena- I'd love to root for Serena, but she clearly hasnt respected the game lately.... IMO she purposely threw 1 or 2 of those matches away in her 4 match loss streak....Plus she'd hold 3 of the 4 slams not playing well... It'd put a shame on her 2002 grand slam IMO if she got it again playing at such a poor level IMO...

Sharapova- Her fans would be unbearable. That said I dont think she'll have that much left in the tank if she makes it to the semifinals based on her match today, where she'll play Safina, who i hope looses in the semifinals, and i dont see Sharapova being able to beat her this early in her comeback.

I wouldnt mind backing Elena.... but i feel like thats just asking for dissappointment...
I also wouldnt mind Wozniaki, but I'm prolly the one of the only people on this board that likes her and doesnt see her as a "pusher"
And I love Li, but realistically she has no chance...

Miss Serena J. Williams, my 2nd fave. I wan't her to win her 2nd RG, if not, then it'd be nice for Ana, Dinara or J.J. to win this year.

Malva
May 30th, 2009, 08:51 AM
But yeah, please, Cibulkova, Szavay, Safina, Kuznetsova, Wozniacki...go away. :sad:

Why Kuznetsova in this company? Good attitude, likeable, technically refined tennis. Don't you like her game? -- I do, irrespective of whether she wins or loses.

May 30th, 2009, 09:21 AM
I'm happy I have so many favorite players. :angel:

So do I - but most of them have lost anyway :sobbing:

Only favourites left in are Serena, Dementieva, Jankovic, Li, Serena, Cirstea and Martinez Sanchez.

Out - Venus, Schnyder, Vesnina, Kleybanova, Mauresmo, Schiavone, Kanepi, Ruano Pascual, Dechy, Hantuchova, Mirza, Goerges, Makarova, Dokic, Bychkova, Loit, Dulko, Zheng, Keothavong and Pennetta.

May 30th, 2009, 09:25 AM
Arvidsson, then she lost

then.

Dokic, then she got injured.

So now im rooting for Dementieva

I hope to see a new winner at RG this year. I'm rooting for Jankovic and Dementieva. :)

Serena. With Vee biting the red dust, she's all I've got left now.

Wouldn't cry if Ana defended either.

DragonFlame

My fave is playing like a douchebag. :rolleyes: She´s losing against stosur on clay for godsakes. If she loses here. :fiery:

Anyway, after her my RG is pretty much useless... I´ll cheer for na li of course but besides that i don´t have many hope. Might as well cheer for ana to win another RG title.

Today sucks if elena doesn´t sort herself out QUICK. :(

H.A.M.
May 30th, 2009, 11:12 AM
Still have MaSha, Serena and Dinara. I'd like to see Azarenka winning too. I wouldn't mind if JJ won.. I'd be pissed if Kuzy or LenaD won. I will give you the HELL if Iavnovic wins!

Venus is the only huge favorite of mine who MISERABLY failed :o

Why Kuznetsova in this company? Good attitude, likeable, technically refined tennis. Don't you like her game? -- I do, irrespective of whether she wins or loses.

The idea of her winning another slam does not go well with me. It almost seems wrong after her failing so many times. I don't mind her, but she's never particularly moved me, and I'd hate seeing her win a second one. She went nearly three years without a real title and showed zero joy when she finally got her tenth title, the same as when she won her slam. There's nothing for me to get excited over about her.

No one believed me when I told them I expected Elena to lose. I don't do great in suicide for no reason. :lol:

May 30th, 2009, 12:33 PM

Peer & Daniilidou didn't play, Mirza lost first round, Rogowska second, Suarez Navarro lost today but I've still got Stosur, Wozniak, Wozniacki and Cibulkova. Not a bad RG so far but it's probably going to stop next round.
