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. :hug:
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. :facepalm:

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.

I really don't understand why it's mandatory to pick in both categories. Wozniacki remains the player I can't stand, but now I'm rather indifferent to her than inclined to say I hate or dislike her, as I barely see her anymore. I added Cornet, but for the last 3, I used random.org, I don't know any of those players.

1 bianca andreescu, because she's awesome.
2 dayana yastremska, because she's going to be awesome, hopefully.
3 aryna sabalenka, how can you not like her, great interviews as well.
4 sonya kenin, magnificent fighting spirit, never gives up.
5 karolina pliskova, not everyone's cup of tea, but i like her.
6 amanda anisimova, future star, love her style.
7 elise mertens, gets everything out of her game, plus aryna's doubles partner.
8 danielle collins, i like the fact she's a little different, great fighter.
9 camila giorgi, okay, her handshakes aren't great, but the rest of her is fine as.
10 bernarda pera, yes she's a choker, but she's the hottest one and a cutie.


dislikes
1 anastasija sevastova, is there a more miserable looking player on court, i get depressed by watching her.
2 angelique kerber, mostly just her on court persona.
3 sloane stephens, mostly just because she looks like she couldn't care less, that really pisses me off.
4 madison keys, i just find watching her so bloody boring, i don't know why. ( maddie is fine, just her game)
5 coco gauff, nothing about her really, just the constant hype that i'm sick of.( probably unfair of me)

it was hard to find dislikes, only sevastova really gets up my nose, a sevastova losing day is a great tennis day for me.
apologies to all sevastova fans.
