By this I mean any of the following:

1. Proud to be a fan of tennis, as a sport.
2. Proud to be a fan of a particular player.
3. Proud to be a fan of a particular tennis nation?

Re: What 2005 tennis moment made you feel proud?

3 times i was proud of roger.
first, aussie semi, he fought his heart out and went down fighting
second, after winning wimbledon in such style, playing the type of tennis that wont be forgotten even when there was so much pressure on him.
thirdly, wining the open when he wasnt even at his best.

131 and proud

those were perfectly legit answers, you can post a bunch about agassi if you like, not sure where the problem is.
1. Proud to be a fan of tennis, as a sport. the comments roger made about santoro after their match at the uso
2. Proud to be a fan of a particular player. federer fighting really hard in miami, and handling his loss in australia really well.
3. Proud to be a fan of a particular tennis nation? croatia/ivan this year in DC.

In all three categories and for both players, it was that 45 hit rally between Hewitt and Federer at Indian Wells last March.

Re: What 2005 tennis moment made you feel proud?

For me:

Proud to be a fan of tennis, as a sport - Federer is a true ambassador to the game, both in terms of his "God-like" abilities and his personality.

Proud to be a fan of a particular player - James Blake. My heart, like so many other peoples' goes out to this man. Not only did he lose his father, but he almost lost mobility and his career...and somehow he is back at the top of the game within 18 months! Incredible!

Proud to be a fan of a particular tennis nation? Ljubo, in David Cup, is a true inspiration for anything right now in my life...I've had a difficult year and seeing him able to battle single-handedly and come up trumps in so many challenges, is incredible. If you are ever down in something as trivial as a sporting match, you think of him...and start to turn the tables...

Re: What 2005 tennis moment made you feel proud?

I wouldn´t describe what I feel for tennis or what tennis makes me feel as being "PROUD". I enjoy it, it`s a wonderful sport and it can make my day a couple of times in the year...
My happiest tennis moments this year: Marat defeating Roger and winning AO, Puerta in RG final, Argentina defeating Australia in Aus. and on grass (Nalbi ) and the good moment of Arg. male pro tennis in general (despite doping)....
I might be missing something...
(and obviously, enjoying good tennis in general too...*cough*Roger*cough*Rafa*cough*)

everyone on here will think you are a idiot for saying that, but not me here is why, fans like on this forum only hear bad things and use them against a player, but Ljubicic was voted by players as Vice-President of there Union, so if people who spend most of time with him yearly on the tour, think that highly of him, he must not be that bad of guy after all.

Re: What 2005 tennis moment made you feel proud?

I will talk about moments when I was proud of players other than Roge (I am proud of him many times)

1. I was very proud of Safin: Safin def. Federer AO semifinals, the exchange not just at the net but when they were walking over and Safin came and patted him on the back and they looked at each other, understanding how difficult it is to lose after having matchpoint


2. I was very proud of Agassi: at the USO finals he was extremely gracious in defeat. He took time to talk up Roge because the crowd was so one-sided, and he managed a congratulation smile to Roge although he looked devastated

Re: What 2005 tennis moment made you feel proud?

1. Proud to be a fan of tennis, as a sport.

All the charitable things ATP players have done this entire year with disaster relief and UNICEF, for example Carlos Moya donating all his prize money from winning Chennai to help tsunami victims.

2. Proud to be a fan of a particular player.

Rafa winning Roland Garros, taking out 2 Frenchmen and the World No 1, on his first try while only losing 3 sets.

3. Proud to be a fan of a particular tennis nation?

Argentina's win over Australia in DC QFs, particularly Puerta/Nalbandian winning the doubles rubber on grass.

Titles: 2005 - PAW Washington 2006 - PTS Marseille, TT Miami Doubles(w/coreyschucky), TT Tokyo Singles 2007 - TT Hamburg Doubles(w/SarettaFan) 2008 - TT Indianapolis Singles Finalist: 2005 - PAW Montreal & Bucharest 2006 - TT Acapulco Singles & Doubles(w/Iza), TT Houston Doubles(w/robrulz5), PTS Monte Carlo, TT Barcelona Doubles(w/Peta Pan), TT Newport Doubles(w/adee-gee), PAW Umag 2007 - TT Queen's Singles & Doubles(w/SarettaFan), TT Champaign Doubles(w/TommyB.) 2008 - TT Auckland Doubles(w/invu2day), TT Recanati Singles, TT Newport Doubles(w/sploush), TT Indianapolis Doubles(w/sploush)

As an argentine, the moment of 2005 that made me feel proud of our tennis was the Entry Ranking of August 1st and 8th:

#8 Gaudio, Gaston (ARG )
#9 Coria, Guillermo (ARG )
#10 Canas, Guillermo (ARG )
#11 Puerta, Mariano (ARG )
#12 Nalbandian, David (ARG )
