Wimbledon: VENUS PERIOD....Serena, Sharapova
USO: VENUS, SHARAPOVA, SERENA, Clijsters, Henin, Kuznetsova? Jankovic

The different surfaces fit them well. My favorite being Venus Williams in Wimbledon. It really doesn't get any better than this (hence her 5titles in 8 finals since 2000!!).

I hardly wtach matches that don't envolve these players. The other players are just mediocre.
lol I don't think you'll convert any fans by making them watch Kuznetsova. She shows up for maybe one or two events a year and then plays like a Challenger player for the rest of the year.

I agree with the others though.

To be fair, men's tennis during 2000 to 2002/transition period was boring as fuck. I mean Magnus Norman was once World No. 2.
What about Justine? She's another player that ATP lovers can generally appreciate.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT.

There are differences between the ATP and WTA, both have their good and bad sides. In general, for most of the time, I've almost always preferred the WTA. It is probably in some of it's worst times right now though there's still so much in it, and in fact I haven't been this excited for RG in a few years. I don't think there's a doubt the level of tennis on the ATP has been higher for the past few years though. My interest in the ATP has definitely increased again. I've always had my faves but I'm finally actually enjoying just following the tour after years of Federer on his own.


But 1990's- early 2000's WTA shits all over the ATP of that period. Davenport, Hingis, Venus, Serena, Graf, Seles, Pierce, Capriati, Clijsters, Henin, the list goes on and on. And, I actually loved the ATP in the early-2000's too.

How do you think people in the reverse position feel? Waiting 4+ hrs for some 5 setter to finish. That's another big thing I hate about the ATP. 5 set matches have got. to. go. Plus the fact that most broadcasters seriously favour men's matches over women's.

No. But if you were a true football fan you wouldn't be unable to enjoy a game of women's football. That's the thing, people here referring to women's tennis as shit/useless/only good for perving, it's really hard to take them seriously as tennis fans (or at all ).

5 set matches have got to go? I would honestly give up watching the ATP if that happened. It would kill the suspense. 5 set matches are much better tests of stamina and endurance and more likely to see changes in momentum. I love them.

what are you smoking mate??, no 5 setters???, well your at it, lets make the the wta matches first to nine. Less choking,less errors and less 5 mph second serves!!. About the broadcasting, thats bullshit. This year they showed kim winning 6-0 6-3 instead of an exicting 5 setter between steps and ivo, both those guys each have something that wta players don't, a good volley or a big serve!!, wta always get shown ahead of atp in grandslams. i'm sick of carillo commentating on wta at the us-open aswel, just gives me another reason not to watch that crap.

Men's junior tour has better quality overall than women's tour. Since very few people watch men's juniors, the vast majority of people who enjoy watching the women's games must be enjoying something other than tennis.

Anyway check this rally, this is pretty good.
