Well some other forums have this, and I thought that it was a good idea.

To sort of describe a bit about ourselves - not too much of course, as some aren't partial to sharing too many details, but you get the idea.

For example, I'm a 20 year old female, who is currently unemployed ;) but I'm a student so its okay :eek:

My other faves after Ferrero (who is my number one fave, and the only one that i will never root for the opponent of), are David Nalbandian, James Blake, Fabrice Santoro, Sebastien Grosjean, Tommy Robredo, Alex Corretja, and lots more ;)

My faves on the WTA are Martina Hingis, Justine Henin, and Anna Kournikova.

I have been watching tennis as long as I can recall, but I never started following it hard core untill maybe 2000? maybe 1999? Certaintly I didn't use the internet to follow tennis untill 2000.

I started posting on some boards in April of 2001, and here I am :p

Anyone else want to share?

I'm a 19 year old male unemployed student :p I'm from Virginia, USA.

My ATP faves other than Juanqui are Lleyton Hewitt, Paul-Henri Mathieu, Tommy Robredo, Thomas Johansson, etc. etc.

WTA faves are Mary Pierce, Corina Morariu, Nathalie Dechy, Emmanuelle Gagliardi, etc. etc.

I started following tennis around 1992 (early Graf/Pierce fan) though I have been watching it forever because my parents like it, and have been following hard-core since about 1995 after I saw Mary win the Australian Open.

I started posting on the Sanex boards in mid-1999.

Ok I'm really ancient! I'm actually 30 but I feel and look about 20. :D Single and currently unemployed, although I make my living with freelance translations and some other stuff. Also looking for a boyfriend but everyone here is so young. *sigh* ;) I'm a Capricorn but that's not always apparent.

I started watching tennis when I was little as I've already mentioned in the other thread. I adored Lendl but after he retired I only followed tennis sporadically. In 2001 tennis became my favorite pastime and I've been practically obsessed with it ever since. For example, I have a beautiful notebook (the paper one) where I write down all the matches of all the tournaments and mark my favorites in red or blue.

My number one favorite is of course Ferreo :kiss: and like Rebecca said I never ever cheer against him. My many other favorites have their place in my hierarchical structure and include: Tim Henman, Alex Corretja, Greg Rusedski, Lleyton Hewitt, Sebastien Grosjean, Fabrice Santoro, Tommy Robredo, Carlos Moya, Arnaud Di Pasquale, Goran Ivanisevic, Olivier Rochus, Marat Safin...

My WTA faves are Monica Seles, Kim Clijsters, Mary Pierce, Katarina Srebotnik and Tina Pisnik.

I only started posting in April of this year at Go Tennis.

I'm also a movie and music buff and have loads of tapes. Never leave the house without my walkman. My other major hobby is astrology, which I've studied for many years and might even make into a profession some day. People still laugh at me about that but I don't blame them. It does sound funny lol. :D

Layla, I dunno about ancient. I get the feeling, especially when I venture into Non-Tennis, that I'm a youngster :)

Okay, a little about myself. I'm a female, unemployed college student, total tennis fanatic. I used to watch Wimbledon as a child but laid off for a few years (the last slam I followed was 96 Richard Krajieck at Wimbly, wow I remember being sooooo thrilled he won instead of Pete :) ) I got back into it in 2001, I'm talking delved into it.

Other faves besides Juanqui: James Blake, Michel Kratochvil :hearts:, Jarkko Nieminen :hearts:, Richard Gasquet, Mario Ancic.

WTA faves: Kimmy Clijsters & Daniela Hantuchova. All time favorite was Steffi Graf, she always kicked ass at Wimbledon!

My favorite Slam is Roland Garros, and all of my favorite players are pretty good clay courters.

None of my RL friends like tennis to the degree that I do, so they got so pissed at me yakking all the time that they told me to start a website. I did, and it's my hold on the net to keep up with my boys and girls. Everyone who's seen it loves it, so come by and visit! http://tennishack.freeservers.com

I started posting on internet boards way back in '97 and everyone mistook me for a 30-year-old man :eek: I started posting for tennis in Yahoo Groups last year and stumbled onto this place from Mrs. G's Kim site at WTA World.

My fave slam is ROland Garros too :) Clay season is my absolute fave time of the year.

My freinds get sick of me talking about it too :eek: esp about Ferrero - that is why my msn list is full of online tennis freinds :p

It's funny, the hot rumour on the sanex board used to be that I was really a gay man disguising as a women :rolleyes: lmao

I'm Ana and I'm an alcoholic, I'm a 15 year old female and I love to watch Juanqui play :D My Atp faves are in my sig so no point in posting it over again. I have too many WTA faves to list but I guess Anastasia Myskina, Elena Dementieva, Justine Henin, and Kim Clijsters, are at the top now :)

Keep cheering :wavey:

WTA faves: Venus, Serena, Lindsay, Jennifer, Hingis, Dokic, Chanda, Monica and of course you could never leave out God's greatest gift to tennis: Miss Anna Kournikova, she's making a comeback!
