    I am playing tennis for years, I used to play some club level tournaments but I gave up on it. Now I am following tennis regularly,especially WTA tour.
    I was wondering is anyone here playing and following professional ATP and WTA tour ? If yes, who are your fav players and are you looking forward US OPEN ?

    he is still an asshole. :smile:

    now Ana Ivanovic, is a serb i like very much :smile:

    Djokovic I hate.

    besides, if you to want cheer for a Serb on the men's tour, cheer for Janko Tipsarevich, Viktor Troicki or Ilia Bozoljac...not Djokovic :wink:

    Jankovic is a bettr player, but Ana is much prettier :wink:

    and i hate Djokovic for many reasons

    1. I am a Federer fan, and Djokovic and his repulsive family have been classless and despicable towards Federer.

    2. He is an asshole, like what he did here in New York at the US Open last year.

    3. I hate his gamesmanship on the court...the ball bouncing, complaining, the throwing water on the court.

    4. He quits when he is losing badly and he always make excuses.

    5. he has a stupid haircut

    LOL :biggrin1::wink:

    Many people are hating on Nole for those reasons. He still had guts to do this : http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_GWJatwb-WlI/SoDUzFS2bSI/AAAAAAAAKGs/AYSfjbZTRpU/s400/djokovic_montreal.jpg
    :sgrin:

    Yes, Ana is prettier but JJ is such a great and funny person, love watching her. She is actually playing her QF match in Toronto in 1 hour.There will be live stream.

    I play tennis at my local club regularly and follow the pro tour a bit obsessivly...

    On the girls side I'm always routing for:
    Dementieva (She WILL win a Grandslam one day!) lol
    Hantuchova (I've met her and although her game is far from perfect she really does deserve a place in the top 20 at the very least)
    Dokic (I love her too and was gutted when she withdrew from the French :( it was so sad... Unfortunately I think she will disappear again after the next Australian Open because she hasn't won enough points anywhere else to stay in the top 100)

    I also love watching Mauresmo, Stosur, Pennetta and Sharapova when on form but not as much as the other three.
    I am interested by the Clijsters come-back... It's amazing how she has straight away gone back to her old form and is beating or challenging top 10 players after so long away.

    I fuking HATE Safina! She is a terrible advert for womens tennis and should be on the mens tour. I also think it's laughable that one woman (Serena) can hold three of the four grandslams and not be number one! :mad:

    From the ATP my faves are:
    Federer (His tennis is as close to perfection as it gets)
    Hewitt (Far from his best but always exciting to watch)
    Hass (Brilliant technical player)

    Also enjoy watching Karlovic, Del Potro, Safin and Roddick.

    Tennis is the only sport I follow. My favourite player must be Verdasco.

    guts, or stupidity? :wink:

    besides, if i were him, i would do more situps.


    well, i don't personally hear Jankovich say anything funny in english (maybe she is funny in Serbian) she is a good player, though.

    i won't be watching her tonight...i am watching the Quarterfinals in Cincinatti, Djokovic is playing Simon (and i hope he loses) and Nadal is playing Berdych

    1) I'd encourage him to actually become a gay porn star. LOL
    2) Yeah, he ditched her...so what. That's life, get over it.
    3) He looks great
    4) He's a great player
    5) You like Djokovic, so I'm not surprised you have no taste :biggrin1:
