Leena #2

Hello everybody!

My name is Leena, I'm 22 years old, and I love books, dogs, and -- obviously -- tennis. Actually, I tend to be obsessive about tennis, and I thought I was doomed to be obsessive all alone; which is why I'm very glad to have found this place. You guys make me feel normal!

I like just about every player who plays well, and dislike none. My WTA favourite used to be Hingis, now it's Henin-Hardenne; and my ATP favourite... well, I'm not going to tell who my current ATP favourite is, because I don't want to be dragged out in the street and shot. I love to play tennis also, but unfortunately I've got no one to play with. And I've never learnt to serve, so it would be a bit pointless anyway.

Anyhow, I'm glad to be here. As there already is a Leena here, you can call me Ismy. (When I first noticed a 'Leena thread' spanning about 10 pages in the off-topic section, I actually thought it was about me , and I thought, 'This is what I call a warm welcome!' I was always something of an egoist.)

Re: Leena #2

In fact, I turned 23 a couple of weeks ago.

Did I mention my memory isn't particularly good?

Re: Leena #2

Welcome Leena2. You're funny. You're definitely not normal which is why you should fit in with all of us other tennis loonies. When are you going to spill the beans about your ATP fave, huh? Have fun.

Re: Leena #2

Kiitoksia, Adele! Hauska tavata

Thank you, jmp and Washa, for your kind words. (If 'you're definitely not normal' counts as 'kind words'. ) My current ATP darling should be easy enough to guess... He seems to be despised by roughly 80% of the populace here, poor thing. But that's okay. Fan-martyrdom has a sort of appeal to it.

And Washa, I don't know why you've been sad, but I order you to cheer up this instant!

Hi. Who are your favorite ATP players? You won't be shot, I promise-just find your home among the player forums.

Re: Leena #2

O.K., L2, I'm guessing Lleyton because of all the bad press he's gotten lately. He has just as many fans who will be around long after the grumbling settles down. Did I get it right?

Re: Leena #2

Why, thank you, MariaV, erica and Willow! (I had no idea the Finnish language was such a hot commodity here )

I suppose I might as well admit that the much-maligned player I have a soft spot for is none other than Roddick. (I love Lleyton too, though.) The funny thing is that I used to find him quite obnoxious; but since last year's Wimbledon, I've been smitten. I think it was the beard that did it. I blame the beard.

(I think the beard may have emanated some healthy fumes into his own nose as well, because he played and behaved like a completely different person while he was wearing it...)

Re: Leena #2

Dog gone it! Andy is the old stand by for "the man hated by MTF". I should have gotten it!

Don't you think most of that has blown over?

L2, we got a bunch of new Andy fans on MTF right around the end of AO. They said Andy's site was down. So, you won't be lonely.

See you in the forums.
