The first tennis match I watched and liked was Hantuchova vs Venus Eastbourne 2011 and then I watched Wimby 2011 and was routing for Maria

The first tennis match I watched was epic semifinal between Safin and Federer @ AO 2005 if i'm not mistaken.
The first Maria's match I watched was replay of YEC 2004 final :oh:
I wasn't Maria's fan and watched her matches from time to time. Actually I started following Maria's career closely after her comeback in 2009.

I think I first heard for her at USO 2006. I was watching the ending of that tournament because JJ played against Henin in the semis (and of course lost after a nice lead :o). And then I just wanted a cute, sympathetic girl from Russia to win it, because I wanted JJ's loss avenged :lol: And that's kind of the beginning of me as a Maria fan. I watched her very irregularly though up until RG 2011 I would say :eek: I consider myself a huge fan, and since the first time I saw Maria I always liked her and rooted for her, so it seems almost surreal to me that I actually started watching her in a I-don't-miss-a-single-match fashion that recently...

I believe I first watched her when she lost (choked) that RG 2008 match to Safina...:facepalm:
That, and her subsequent loss to peasant Kudryavtseva too I guess

I first heard about her at RG 2004 and the first time I watched her play was in the early rounds of Wimbledon 2004.

Final of Wimbledon 2004 was the first match I saw from her and I immediately became a fan:) But I wasn't really a fan of tenis till 2007, so I didn't really follow her that closely until 2007. Since 2007 I try watch as many matches of her as I can.
When she was out with a shoulder injury it was horrible for me. I was following her for a bit more than a year and then 10 months of no matches from Maria :sobbing:

The first match that I probably saw from her is wimbledon 04 QF against Sugiyama. I didn't know much about her back then and tennis in general. Became a fan in 2005 :)

Australia Open 2004 , i was watching her match vs maybe Myskina , and our constant Eurosport commentator Boris Borovsky told during the match something like " look at this girl, she is probably a next Kournikova with a great future and will be very popular very soon"

it was about a halfyear before Wimbledon 2004 )))
