My name is Dominic, and I post as Beforehand here and on another forum. People call me "Befo" there, so if you're the type that likes to abbreviate, go for it.
On the other forum, only three people post in our tennis thread, so I think that qualifies me a little bit.
I just started watching tennis during the semifinals of Wimbledon last year, and since then I think I've learned a lot for not even watching for a year yet. I got lucky during Wimbledon last year, as I cheered for Maria Sharapova because she was 17 and Federer because I thought his headband/ponytail was the most awesome hairstyle ever!
So, they became my favorites then and have since become my favorites. I'm not a big fan of the women's game, so I can't say I like anyone but Maria. In the men's game, I've recently become a fan of Guillermo Coria (after his match with Agassi at Indian Wells). Others I keep a slight eye on include Andre Agassi and David Nalbandian.
I am NOT a fan of Lleyton Hewitt or Rafael Nadal and would glady see them drop off the face of the Earth.
Well, that's all I can think of for now...by all means, PM me or something if you're really interested in more for some reason.
