    This thread is probably going to crash and burn, but I thought I'd give it a try!

    I guess i'll start. My favorite player is Roddick (#3 in the world),
    [​IMG]
    hoping he'll make a come-back! My most hated player is FEDERER, the number one player in the world. He's gotten so cocky lately after being on top for so long, i'm praying this will be his downfall year! :devil: I like Nadal (#2), he's got tons of energy and never gives up.

    My 2 favorite up-and-comers on the men's side are Andy Murray and Djokovic. Let's hope they start kicking some major ass in the next few months.

    Now for the WTA....so many hot players...I mean good! They're good! Amazing...ya, they're amazing...Uhh, hehe, anyways. Maria Sharapova is of course my favorite (who's isn't she?); here's her pic:
    [​IMG]
    Ya....but that's not why I like her! Well, not the whole reason. She's an aggressive, power player and she's #1 in the world to boot! Woot! :lol:

    Hopin' this will be Serena Williams' come back year! (she dominated women's tennis for a long time, and she started slipping about 4 years ago. She's already won one of the biggest tournaments of the year...and she's still kickin ass!

    My favorite 2 up and comers are Shahar Pe'er and Vaidisova. Shahar Pe'er mainly, especially because she's from Israel which is very unusual, never seen a tennis player from over there; plus her style of game is amazing.

    Here's to all things tennis! Cheers! *hoping this thread lives*

    Awesome, a tennis liker. :D

    Roddick is my favorite because he's a hothead american, same reason as you. :lol:

    Federer losing twice in a row was an answer to my prayers!

    What do you mean by play longer? Tennis is all year long. If you have HDTV there's a channel called "The Tennis Channel" that shows tournaments that ESPN and the other networks don't (my favorite channel on TV).

    LMAO! You dirty, dirty....ok, we're both dirty, dirty men. :lol:

    That would be great, but almost all female players, when asked this question, have been recorded saying that they would need a stretcher and a hospital vehicle outside the stadium, because they wouldn't be able to stand it. They all say it'd be too much for them.

    Disappointing for us I guess...one more pic. :)

    *withered little voice shouts out in the background* "Go Tim Henman"

    I've never been into tennis because the country never get worked up about it, so I have no time to watch it. But, hundreds of people think Tim Henman will win Wimbledon every time it comes around and pay to watch him. Face it people it's not happening.

    I actually had federer, i've always hated him. He's probably the only tennis player who actually dominated for 3 years+. Roddick all the way =D.

    Ha, finally someone in the UK who can be real about this issue. If anyone from over there, it's going to be Murray. :) I think it'd be awesome if he did it, too.

    See. No one even knows who Henman is.

    My grandad runs to me at Wimbledon every time shouting "I JUST WON 60 QUID" betting against Henman.

    Hey, cool thread, I love tennis, especially singles. I'm best at forehand+backspin/overspin. I'm decent at serving and backhand. My favorite player is Roger Federer, Roddick is a sour puss.

    This is where I love you. :)
    This is where I hate you. :lol:

    The thing I hate about Roddick is his predictability with his shots! 5 secs before he hits the ball I know where it's going! I don't like Roger Federer anymore, I used to have respect for him, but now he's WAY TOO COCKY. He's ridiculously pompous.

    Like I said, I used to have respect for him.

    Thanks much. :)

    I know, Djokovic is amazing. He was last year's youngest men's player in the top 20 (younger than Murray). :eek:

    It's awesome to see how many people here have a love for the game, it warms my heart. :sad:

    My grandpa taught me (and still does along with lessons) everthing about tennis from how to hit a forehand to who one the Australian Open any year.

    I love you both so much. :cryin: (in a non-creepy, fellow tennis player kind of way ;)).

    So, who's gonna win Wimbledon this year, guys? Hopefully Murray can pull it off, I think it'd be cool for the British community to get what they've been praying for the past 20 years to become reality. :lol:

    I know Nadal won't win it; Roddick's a no; Djokovic most likely no; Hewitt, don't make me laugh; Bagdhatis....*buzzard* wrong; I think Murray could pull it off. The only competition he'll have is Federer.
