As tennis playing female, sometimes I do feel kinda embarassed that I really don't have any interest when it's on... and often times mad that it is on. It could quite possibly be due to the fact that it means that the ATP gets less television time (and being in the United States makes that even WORSE... can't even watch on bet365)
But when it comes to watching tennis and playing tennis, I do look at them as two different aspects of my life. When I'm playing tennis, I love the feel of being on the court... the excitement of an ace.... the exhilaration of hitting a winner... and the hilarity of playing doubles with besties.
But when I'm watching ATP tennis, I guess it would be the equivalent of some of the guys here watching Kirilenko play tennis... although I get the enjoyment of watching my tennis player take of their shirt.
There hasn't really been anyone I've followed religiously in WTA, although if I chance upon a Venus match, I will watch. I like her LOADS better than Serena... i like how she looks when she wins... it's so innocent.
and that RBK dress that she had at Wimby was GORGEOUS!
That and there is just way more excitement going on in the ATP.
