Feb 1st, 2002, 07:02 AM
Since she retired I have found it hard to have a fave, she was one in a million, a great fighter and was the first belgian to reach teh Top Ten.

We Miss U!!!!:)

I know I miss her :)

I always thought she was very fun to watch! I remember when she won the olympic bronze medal in doubles, and her emotional win over Lindsay at RG. I hope she's enjoying her life outside of tennis!!! :D

I miss her:)

Many people who were fans may miss her but I am not sure
how she is remembered among many tennis fans because
she did not have that impact on tennis as compared to
Henin and Clijsters. Though she played her part; not enough
in my opinion.

Feb 1st, 2002, 02:05 PM
i do miss her a lot :)
since i just watch a lot tennis
when she retire but i can still
remember her play
i ever watch her once she's
great :D

I miss her. She still had some good matches in her.

Feb 1st, 2002, 04:03 PM
After Julie Halard's retiremnet I feel the same way, fave-less!

Actually Dominique would have become my fave if she had not retired at the same time as Julie.

My 1st and 2nd faves bowed out at the same time.

I think she was a badly under-rated player, capable of anything.

Feb 1st, 2002, 04:09 PM
She is really missed :rolleyes:

Feb 1st, 2002, 06:59 PM
I miss her...she was able to play some spectacular tennis. I always wondered how such a petite player could create so much pace. She was exciting to watch.

Feb 1st, 2002, 08:11 PM
I was just wondering if Dominique is from the Walloon speaking side of Beligium or the Flemish side coz her first name seem French with a Dutch last name?

Feb 1st, 2002, 08:34 PM
i've only took notice of her during the last moments of her career... but she's a great player and yes certainly missed. I just love the way she trounced Lindsay twice (RG & Eastbourne?)

Feb 1st, 2002, 08:45 PM
I mis Dominique too. It's a pity she retired at such a young age. :sad:

Candy, Dominique is Walloon. She used to play under 'Dominque Monami' but after she married to Bart Van Roost, who is Flemisch, she changed her name. They are living in Flanders now. :)

O yes, loved the way she played and (re)acted on court :)

Feb 1st, 2002, 09:18 PM
Yep, she was a cool player to watch. I loved the way she could compete with the very best. Those victories over Venus, Hingis & Davenport were so good!!!

Dominique still rules :bounce:

Feb 1st, 2002, 10:46 PM
Dominique who ? ;)

Yes, I do. :) Especially since her 'real' career (with the great results) only lasted 4 years.

Feb 1st, 2002, 11:04 PM
Yeah, I miss her! She's my all-time #1 fav.

Such an elegant lady with a great style on and off the court!

Feb 1st, 2002, 11:31 PM
I miss her a lot too!!!
I'll never forget her reaction when she won at RG from Davenport.
She was crying at the press conference...
She was a real fighter, and always nice in and outside the court!
Bye Dominique

Yes, a lot, she was much more emotional then our new youngsters, and she played some awesome matches.

Good luck Dominique!

Feb 3rd, 2002, 01:30 AM
Dominique, you will always be in my heart! :kiss: :hearts: :kiss:

Feb 3rd, 2002, 01:32 AM
i miss her :sad:

Feb 3rd, 2002, 04:18 AM
I miss her too! I really liked watching her play, she could always surprise! :)
I really think she stopped too soon, but she had great moments like her bronze medal with Els, good Fedcup results, great wins over topplayers,... so I really can't blame her that she wants to end her career on the top, instead of like a player outside the top100!
I hope she's happy without tennis now (I'm pretty sure she is :) )

Feb 4th, 2002, 10:23 PM
Glad to see tgere are so many Domi supporters, I really liked the way she wore her heart on her sleeve, but it was a toture watching her matches, u never knew what u were going to get and her serve made me cringe and panic!!!lol

Feb 5th, 2002, 12:36 AM
Yeah, those awful double-faults. ;)

Has anyone heard how the family is doing ? Or has anyone seen a pic of Dominique and her daughter ?

I guess there's not much I can say... of course, I do miss her!!! :sad: But also, I'm pretty sure she's having a great "new" life now. Like it used to be when she was still playing - when she was happy, we were happy... it has remained the same... :)

Feb 9th, 2002, 03:11 AM
We miss you very much beautiful girl !!!!:kiss: :kiss: :kiss: :sad: :sad: :sad:
