Hands down:
Venus Williams and Serena Williams: loves them equally. I have been a fan of tennis for a very long time. Loved a lot of players but never before have two black players been so dominant. A lot of people say that it is because they are black. Well, that is partially true. If all of a sudden some British player start winning matches and is a top contender for female number one then most tennis fans in the UK would lose there minds because it is rare. I would never say well, I love Michael Jordan because he is black and doing well in Basketball. There are hundreds of black men doing well in basketball. I like Keith Van Horn and Jason Williams in part because they are top white basketball players who are excelling playing a position that is dominated by black men. DO YOU GET ME? It is important to understand that first and foremost I love the game of tennis and would not stop watching and following the tourneys if my top two faves stop playing.

Alex Stevenson: See Venus and Serena. Also, Alex has so much potential and I want her to realize them all.

Monica Seles: She is MONICA SELES, enough said. Besides, she is a part of the fearless foursome. GO MONI.

Chanda Rubin: She is a little different from Venus and Serena. I just like her. Get back on your game girl.

Sandrine testude: She was Chanda's doubles partner. Love her but she drives me crazy when she plays. Loses so many matches that she should have won.

Del Los Rios: Loves her story.

Iroda: She idolizes my top two faves (well, she admires their game):eek:

Anna K: I like her. I just want her to win a tourney so that people who does not follow tennis can see that she does have a solid game and IS ACTUALLY A TENNIS PLAYER. Not just T&A.

I am not a fan of Hingis, but I really wanted her to beat Jenn. I feel for her. I think back to the dominant Martina and know that she would not have lost that match 3 years ago.


MOST HATED:


JENN CAP: What a foul mouthed piece of trash. And to think that last year during the OZ I was so happy that she won. What a difference a year make. Proves you can take the girl out the slum but you cant take the slum out the girl. She is disgusting.

And you equal your description of JC by what you wrote about her. Hypocrite.

If only you had left out the trash about Jenn, that'd have been a beautiful post.

It seems that some people have a great deal of difficulty separating the "player" from the "person".

People can act obnoxious on court, but apparently in real life are nothing of the sort - for example apparently Lleyton Hewitt is a quiet, mild mannered you man. You wouldn't think so if you simply judged from his behavior.

Jenn can be an obnoxious screamer on court - I'm not going to deny that. But have you ever taken a second to read some of the stuff she does for people off of the court? The woman is quite selfless and has a lot of heart.

I just wish people could say they hate a players on court antics, without bashing that player as an individual.

Hands down, my fave is Kim Clijsters!! First of all, she's an awesome player and I don't think anybody can argue with that. And plus she seems to be the sweetest girl on tour. Second would be a tie between Venus and Serena. After both of those would be Justine, Martina, Daniela and a bunch of other players that I enjoy. I agree with Freethinker82, most hated definetly Jennifer Capriati. And it's not just because of her on court antics because like somebody said, Lleyton is like that too and i'm a big fan of his. But for Jen, I dunno, I just can't stand the girl. I guess it's not really her fault but i hate to hear anybody praise somebody for kicking drugs... I know it's hard and stuff but how about about saying congrats Kim, Venus, Serena, Justine etc... for being such good people and never taking drugs instead of Congrats Jen, you kicked drugs... i dunno, that just really pisses me off... and y'all can insult for not liking jennifer i don't really care!

You have a great post here Angele87 and you are certainly entitled to your opinion about Capriati. However, I think you need to give her more credit. Yes, she should not have gotten involved with drugs, but it happens to the best of people. She deserves praise for getting off drugs and turning her life around to become a champion tennis player. That is not an easy thing to do.

Yes, the other players you listed never took drugs, but everyone makes choices in life and some people make the wrong choices. You shouldn't condemn a person simply because of a wrong choice, but praise them for making the right choice to clean up their lives.

"god are we all gay and perfectionists here??"

Um - what does ones sexuality have anything to do with this? I think you just made your own ignorance VERY clear with that statement :rolleyes:



"as long as u know what he meant and he knoes what he meant there is no reason to start being immaure about it."

Ironic to call us immature, for commenting on another immaturity.



"if u havnt got n e thing nice to say then u shouldnt say n e thing at all!"

Once again - how ironic that you comment that we have nothing nice to say - yet your sticking up for a poster who just topped off a decent post with absolute filth.

Speaks volumes for the type of character you are - a type that I pity.

Thanks apoet29 for respecting my opinion... most people attack me when i say i don't like Jen lol... yeah i know turning your life around like Jen did is really a remarkable accomplishment it's just that i don't think she needs to be to made out as being better than the rest of the players on tour. Also I think since i haven't been watching tennis for too long so i wasn't watching when Jen first was on tour and when her life started to get bad so i can't really appreciate what Jen has done... i know i shouldn't dislike her (dislike is a better word that hate cuz i dont really hate her) just for that but you know when you don't really like somebody you just can't shake that feeling!!

How on earth can people defend Jen?

Jennifer Capriati's behavior can not and should not be defended. She acted in a deplorable manner during the final of the AO 2002. The heat is no excuse--especially given how many other players played out there and kept a "cool" head. I would be very offended if I happened to have been so unfortunate as to have been seated within earshot of her with my small impressionable child. What a crass and totally tasteless display of bad manners!

Congratulations to her for winning, but she almost makes me not want to watch her anymore. She may not deserve to be punished because of her behavior, but she certainly does not deserve to be defended. Would someone please pass her a soap sandwich.

I really thought she might get suspended or penaloized, but it looks like they had a soft-cock umpire who lets people get away with n e thing!!
