Serena fans Unite: Introduce Yourself
(Hello my fellow Serena fans. I'm going to try to be more active in this thread since this thread is the one spot where all of us Serena fans can gather to talk about our love, admiration, and appreciation for all things Serena. So let's all try to gather here more often and get to know one another a lot better- I love all the other Serena fans out there...)
I'm just currious about everyone's story about when they became die-hard Serena fans- so please share....
As for me:
Well I started out as a die-hard Graf fan. Although Graf was my ultimate number one, I always kept my eyes open on all the new talent coming in and Serena really impressed me from day one. I could never have envissioned myself being a die-hard Venus fan because what I liked most about Steffi was her intensisty on the court and I just didn't see that in any other player on tour besides Serena. I remember the day where I "officialy" became a true Serena fan. When she was playing Indian Wells and that crowd was being horrible to her- I saw strength and courage in her, a will to overcome and not let the crowd get the best of her. To say that I was impressed is a great understatement. The thing I love most about Serena is her sheer will to be great (just like Steffi). To me it was a sign that the same year Steffi won her last grandslam and retired, it was the same year that Serena won her first grandslam. The torch was officialy handed over as far as I was concerned. Now if only she can stay healthy and have a career lasting as long as Graf's did- that would just be heaven!!!
