For me, I first took notice of him when he beat Sampras for his first Queens Title in 2000 but actually becoming a fan of his probably the US Open semis Vs Sampras in 2000.

I noticed him in 99' but I absolutly hated him then and then I found out he was dating Kim I hadn't a clue what she saw in him lol. But I have to admit I did cheer for him when Him and Kim played Mixed at Wimbly '00'
But I became a Lleyton fan at Queen's 2001 as I noticed he had cut that stupid ponytail off and I thought I was being rather immature having a blast at Lleyton as he was such a good tennis player and I got used to the emotion he used on court and I have been a fan since!

As y'all know, I'm a HUGE Kim fan, so it comes as no surprise that my regard for Lleyton can be traced back to her. :)

I first noticed Kim at the '99 Wimby, when she got to the 4th round as a qualifier. I though, "Hey, this chick could be good." Then I got to see some more of her when she came SO CLOSE to beating the Predator Part 2, er, I mean Serena, at the '99 US Open. Serena, of course, went on to win that :rolleyes: and I thought again, "Hey, this chick could be good."

As Kim was rarely on TV in the US, I didn't get to see her play, so she was one of those players I hoped was doing well, but she was always pushed to the back of my mind sort of by default.

I got to see some of Kim and Lleyton's mixed doubles matches at the '00 Wimby, and I thought they were adorable. :angel: Then I saw Lleyton in the US Open semis versus Sampras, and I really started to root for him.

THEN came the '01 French Open. ;) I loved the way Lleyton battled back from 2 sets to love down to beat Canas, even though Ferrero took him out in straights the next round. And I thought it was sooooo sweet the way he stayed to support Kim throughout the rest of the tournament.

And I was hooked! I've been a rabid Lleyki ever since. :hearts: :hearts: :hearts:

Thanks. Venus is simply The Predator, if you weren't able to piece that all together. :p

"Rabid" is right!
Pffffff. Whatever, Priscilla! :p

They're equally annoying. They rank right up there with Ezel!

Ditto for the Williams sisters. They annoy the tar outta me.

I don't particularily like Justine but I would MUCH rather her than Serena and Venus! They're kinda of annoying just being them but it bugs me SO much that they win EVERYTHING :mad: At least before they use to suck on clay and serena wasn't so good but now the world revolves around them :rolleyes:

Right back when he won his first ATP tournament in Adelaide as a 16 year old - I can't even remember what year it was!

I suppose at first it was mainly because he was Australian and talented. Then I watched him play several levels above his usual standard for Davis Cup and realised how patriotic he was ... and then Pat said Lleyton was his little mate so I was confirmed as a Lleyton fan forever!

I think it was during 2000 that I first started to root for him a little :p

I remember when he lost to Gambill at Wimbledon - pfftt what was that about? :p

The first time I recall seeing him on tv for a full match was against Corretja at the Masters Cup in 2000. I was rooting for Alex though, then later in Davis CUp for Ferrero and Costa.

SO he always seems to be playing people I like :eek:
