I just wanted to have a stroll down memory lane of players that you were used to seeing in the draws, perhaps never a big fan of, but still sort of have fond memories of. I don't know if it makes much sense, but there a lot of players that fit that mold to me. Sidot is one of those players, who I miss seeing thier name in the draw. Along with Sarah Pitowski and Alexandra Fusai. Anyone else share similar memories ?

I don't know what it was about these ladies, and I probably only saw them getting blasted in the 1R of a slam, but for some reason I keep fond memories of them.

hi jamie.dont worry,a thread like this still makes a 100 times more sense than the crap that is brought up often here!i even find it very respectful from you to remember the old times,because so do i very often...
ok,my favs:considering the players you named,i d suppose you are in my age(29),right?some of the girls i liked,were:julie halard-decugis,nat tauziat,lori mcneill,zina garrison,amanda coetzer,dominique van roost,anke huber,iva majoli and so on...that was some kind of era...
and you are right,when you say that it wasnt only big successes,that made us feeling with them.it was much more..aura,spirit...

I'm actually 19 , but I've followed tennis quite a bit as you can tell haha. I started posting on these boards since i ws 14!, and the older board when I was younger then that.

The Chi sisters and the now retired Janet Lee also I'll miss.

Anne-Galle Sidot! I remember her beating Kournikova at Wimbledon.

Catalina Cristea also.

Kimberly Po, Kerry Anne Guse, Erika de Lone, Ruxandra Dragomir, , Kristie Boogert, Gala-Leon Garcia, Patricia Hy-Boulais, and Karina Habsudova all came to my head just now.

I was a huge fan of Karina Habsudova, and I never knew why . I had totally forgotten about her recently.
