Glad to see naomi getting so much love here. I was really not expecting it at all lols. I guess a young player with aggressive game and capabilities to win big has attracted many people. Good for wta if naomi becomes consistent from next year onwards

Re: Who're your faves & who do you hate/dislike? | 2019 edition | Post your lists

LIKE:
1. Victoria Azarenka (still my fave though it's been a bit rough)
…the rest; I don't really have set favorites anymore, it more depends who I want to win on the given day.
2. Su-Wei Hsieh (how can you not love her, and the most entertaining to watch)
3. Caroline Garcia (I want to become her big fan, but she's made it a bit tough this year)
4. Alizé Cornet (hasn't given a lot to cheer for lately but I still love her flair and game is fun to watch)
5. Kristina Mladenovic (wouldn't have expected 3 of the top 5 to be French, but I love her willingness to speak out, and she won my respect forever for taking on Meldonium, even if she lost a bit for the Garcia treatment)
6. Sloane Stephens (hopefully she can get it back together because she's such a pleasure when playing well)
7. Simona Halep (feels kind of weird to have her on this list because I don't feel like a "fan" but her Wimbledon run was so exciting that I figured she deserves a spot for this year)
8. Petra Kvitová (too inconsistent for me to ever be a true fan, but how can you not love her)
9. Johanna Konta (I have so much respect for her sharing her mental journey and for rebounding this year from some lows)
10. Elina Svitolina (unlike many here, I enjoy watching her game, respect her continued improvement and her positive attitude)
Honorable mention to Keys, Sabalenka and Anisimova, I would like to see more of them !

DISLIKE:
1. Serena Williams (did you know she has a daughter?)
2. Maria Sharapova (top two are pretty interchangeable)
3. Eugene Bouchard (this year has been fun )
…the top three are clear, the rest are more just players I'm not crazy about.
4. Daria Kasatkina (this year has been fun )
5. Bianca Andreescu (she's talented af but personality drives me crazy)
6. Naomi Osaka (she's talented af but personality bores me to death)
7. Cori Gauff (nothing she has done per se, but the hype and rule-bending are annoying and she's done nothing to endear herself to me)
8. Ashleigh Barty (I want to like her but she's soooooo boring)
9. Anastasija Sevastova (talented but such a negative personality and top ten would've been ridiculous; Fed Cup move was lame too)
10. Carla Suárez Navarro (count on her to FLOP when you decide to cheer for her)
Honorable mention to apparent trump supporters Kiick and Vandeweghe plus Saisai very nearly made the list due to a certain insufferable fan.

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Crazy Frenchies: Gilles Simon Alizé Cornet

Re: Who're your faves & who do you hate/dislike? | 2019 edition | Post your lists

so its this time of the year again...
i'll keep at five each this time.

yay
1. vika azarenka. always and forever
2. karolina pliskova. effortless power when she feels like moving her lanky frame for a change and probs the best serve after serena when at peak.
3. anastasia pavlychenkova. hard to explain, but always had a soft spot for the perennial talent and her utter hilarious i-don't-give-a-single-fuck personality and attitude. if i had the chance to hang out with one gal for one night out of the entire WTA tour and get seriously wasted i'd for sure pick her after vika.
4: naomi osaka. probs the most talented out of the young guns considering shotmaking ability, but she hardly is always aware of it on the court.
5. ash barty. she's here to stay most likely, even if her hecklers are pressed af about it.


nay
1. SS zheng. i couldn't care less about the pathetic mooballer tbh, but that one "fan" just spoils it for basically everyone across the entire board.
2. caroline wozniacki. the epitome of a pusher by default, even if she's a non-factor these days and her career is basically over.
3. bianca andreescu. while talented af with plenty of power and court awareness her attitude and on-court behaviour with a gazillion MTOs is just off putting.
4. maria sakkari. you damn well know what you did there back then, lying cheat.
5. julia görges. the epitome of a BBB, and proper boobs don't count shit on a tennis court contrary to what her most dedicated stans might think. the by far most wasted talent out of the germans after lisucki.


You're like the Ocean and I'm desperate to drown.


forever Clexa

Re: Who're your faves & who do you hate/dislike? | 2019 edition | Post your lists

Like:

1. Iga Swiatek - amazing talent; equally wonderful personality. Will eventually take over the number one ranking from Yastremska.
2. Maja Chwalinska - look for her to make huge strides now that she's ready to take on the world. Singles might take a bit longer, but I can see her winning a doubles Grand Slam within a couple of years if she has the right partner.
3. Dayana Yastremska - will be number one within three years. NOT just a brainless ball-basher as so many here seem to think.
4. Kristyna Pliskova - the most effortless, beautiful serve in women's tennis, and by far the highest percentage of aces. Seemed to hit a flat spot last year, but the last few months have seen steady improvement.
5. Karolina Pliskova - nearly as good a server as her twin, but has a better all-round game. Moves better than the haters think.
6. Ash Barty - she's not number one in the world for no reason. I've always been a huge fan of one of the most understated (and under-appreciated) players on the circuit. Maybe a few others should take a year or two off to play cricket - it certainly helped Barty!
7. Margarita Gasparyan - so beautiful to watch when on song, but so fragile! For me, the best backhand in women's tennis (except, just maybe, Carla Suarez Navarro - funny how they both only use one hand!).
8. Elina Svitolina - how on earth can people think think she's a boring pusher after her efforts in the Shenzhen semi-final? Pushers don't serve three aces in one game, or seven aces in three games.
9. Camila Giorgi - absolutely love her "take no prisoners" attitude. The fact that she's utterly gorgeous is icing on the cake.
10. Kristina Mladenovic - it was a toss-up here between her and Aryna Sabalenka. I'm a huge doubles fan, and I prefer Kiki to Timea Babos, so that was enough for me.

Dislike:

1. Maria Sharapova - if there was any contrition when she was found to have used Meldonium after it was banned, or an admission that she had stuffed up by not reading her emails, I think that most people would have forgiven her by now. That and her shrieking make her number one.
2. Serena Williams - I don't care how well she's playing, or about her loving attitude to her fellow players. She dissed my home town tournament just because she set a record for the number of unforced errors when losing to Madison Brengle, and she has treated too many court officials like shit. Not even Nick Krygios (as far as I'm aware) has threatened to kill a line judge by ramming a ball down their throat.
3. Ysaline Bonaventure - has such a short fuse that her hair should be coloured bright red as a warning to keep out of her way.
4. Jo Konta - that preamble of ball-bouncing before she serves drives me nuts!
5. Svetlana Kuznetsova - another one who dissed my tournament, complaining that there was too much noise coming from the entertainment area. We should have put her on the outside courts - then she might have REALLY had something to complain about!
6. Victoria Azarenka - another screamer.
7. Dominka Cibulkova - I quite like her actual play, but she seems to complain about anything and everything. Hopefully marriage will mellow her out a bit.
8. Sloane Stephens - just about every match of hers which I've seen (which, admittedly, isn't all that many) seems to have included some snide word or look at or about her opponent. Not impressed.
9. Madison Keys - she may have earnt millions in prize money, but she could have done so much more with her career.
10. Sara Sorribes Tormo - just rubs me up the wrong way. Unexpectedly beating one of my favourites is probably as good a reason as any, though.
