Talking Now Kim is off the tour, who do you support?

I was just curious to know so I made categories, and you just have to elaborate and post precisions on how you see your life as a tennis fan now

Poll is public, multiple choice allowed and poll open for 2 weeks


And oops I forgot one category: My real life can start again

Le temps de la colère, les femmes
Notre temps, est arrivé
Connaissons notre force, les femmes
Découvrons-nous des milliers !

Re: Now Kim is off the tour, who do you support?

Ok I'll start off then:
My life as a tennis fan isn't stopping at all (going to RG at the end of this week ) and I'm a big Amélie fan, so I'll definitely cheer for her all the way now

Re: Now Kim is off the tour, who do you support?

I'm jumping the Caro-bandwagon
besides Jankovic, I don't really have many non-Belgian favs...

Thank you! KIM CLIJSTERS FOR EVER MY NUMBER 1


Supporting Belgian girls!

Tennis will never be the same without Kim, but I'll keep on cheering!

My faves are Amélie, Hingis, Chakvetadze and Danish Caroline Wozniacki.

Re: Now Kim is off the tour, who do you support?

I will end my studies at uni in a month, starting my new job in september, so it's the perfect timing to stop that tennis addiction

Anyway, I already felt that I was less and less involved in tennis after Kim won the US Open. I felt like I had fulfilled my duties as a Kim fan.

Otherwise, I'll keep on visiting the board, watching tennis when I see it, going once in a while to a tournament and visit the 4 Grand Slam if I have the opportunity to do so.

Beside that, my new "fave" is Jelena Jankovic.

I've done that for Am&#233;lie as much as for Kim, quite a few times recently (AO particularly, they were playing on different nights, I was up every single night, I could say i was nearly relieved when one of them lost, I thought I'ld finally sleep again ).
I am going the first sunday and monday so I suppose we'll miss each other

Re: Now Kim is off the tour, who do you support?

I thought about this "problem" too!!! I'll definitelly cheer for the Romanian tennis players because they are pretty good and , I had the oportunity of meeting some of them.
The 4th option in the poll is really interesting

Re: Now Kim is off the tour, who do you support?

None of the options. I’ll keep on following tennis, only I won’t have to get nervous any more

Why should we open a new one? We already have the ’live scores’ thread

Actually, following Kim was a good opportunity to take a little rest from the 'real life'

Re: Now Kim is off the tour, who do you support?

of course it was, and that's what it should be Moonlight
and I suppose you're option one since you'll still follow tennis. A shame my superpowers don't allow me to slightly edit the poll

I got up this year during the AO for Kim's second or 3rd round at 3 or 4 am, watch the second set,(about half an hour) went back to sleep to get up at 7 and take an exam at 9 and pass! glad my dad never found out about that one
I was already fearing for RG and Wimbly if Kim still played, cause we have two weeks to study for final exams starting next week (the two weeks of RG that is) then three weeks of exams (and yes, you got it, the first week of Wimbly was that third week)! gosh I suffered last year not being able to watch some of those matches!

COME ON KIM!

Thanks for everything Kim!!!
