Which female player did you like to watch the most and why?

martina navratilova because she could s+v amazingly and it was a thrill to watch her. Though I think it was even better when she was facing Evert. High quality tennis.

Hingis - greatest genius in tennis history.

Hingis was great all around. Just the smack talk she gave back to the Williams' was worth it. She also had great control an point construction. Plus, I thought she was pretty cute.

After Hingis, I would say Henin. Just awesome from the ground. And, gave Serena some beatings.

i watch wta for my own "interests'

so its sharapova and ivanovic

THERAFA

Sharapova is built like a man, no chest, big shoulders, scowl face, 6'2", I don't find her 'interesting', but yes Ivanovic is my 2nd favorite ever to Hingis.

Ivanovic is the best female player to watch...but not watch her to play lol.

THERAFA
04-10-2009, 07:10 PM
Yeah for tennis ability I'd watch Hingis, and for tennis looks I'd watch Hingis AND Ivanovic.

Dementieva...and yes for tennis. But hey, I like watching davydenko too...i dont mind watching the endless ball bashing.

Alona Bondarenko, Jelena Dokic, and Gabby Sabatini. Oh wait you meant game-wise. I would have to say Kournikova, I honestly really like her game, it is similar to Hingis's.

THERAFA
04-10-2009, 08:59 PM
Yeah Kournikova's game was pretty good, she moved the ball around the court a lot, could play any shot in the book technically well, just not the best judgement and a messy serve, but very entertaining.

Venus Williams. Her movement is mesmerizing.

THERAFA
04-10-2009, 10:52 PM
On grass Venus and Hingis are the 2 most entertaining. Remember Hingis in 1997 Wimbledon, that was incredible.

04-10-2009, 10:54 PM
In order:

Steffi Graf and Monica Seles (They bring the best out of each other with their matches)
Martina Hingis - Pure genius
Justine Henin - A breath of fresh air
Venus Williams - I love her sheer power
Kim Clijsters - The splits!
Anastasia Myskina - for her weird technique

She doesn't have big shoulders. So, basically, you're saying she's built like a man because she doesn't have a Hollywood sillicone rack? That's what a women is?

THERAFA
04-11-2009, 03:57 AM
She does have big shoulders they're like the Olympic swimmer shoulders, and she is 6'2" and no rack, its not the no rack that makes her a man its the body overall. And I think her face is really unflattering, and she's known for arrogance in the lockerroom according to reports, ignores other girls etc.

Have you ever looked at her upper body?

she looks pretty to me, and she has a great butt. :razz:

Monica Seles
Me too! For her amazing fighting spirit (before the stabbing :cry:) but I also liked her personality and style. I still miss her. I haven't liked any other female player as much as her.

Cesc Fabregas

Steffi Graf.

Steffi Graf: that footwork, the power combined with elegance.

Glad someone her has actually watched Kournikova play and knows something about tennis.

Justine Henin easily. I started following her when she played Davenport in Montreal when she was really young. She was my favourite player ever since. I lost interest in the WTA once she retired.

I loved watching Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario run all over the place-side to side at different parts of the court, forward to the net & back to the baseline-to return a ball. Sadly we don't see much of that anymore.

Renee' Richards. You'd be thinking "Wow, that must have hurt" the whole time...

I like crafty women players since the power just doesn't impress at all since the average men hit way harder. So Hingis, Patty Schneider, Date, and women like Loit. Of the "big" hitters, Henin was okay to watch.

Anna Kournikova. Pretty interesting stuff.

04-13-2009, 05:14 AM
i watch wta for my own "interests'

so its sharapova and ivanovic

Yeah, but this is "of all time" so you gotta put Kournikova and Sabatini in there too.

Hingis and the Serena Williams at a GS final. HINGIS IS THE most entertaining thing alive. She run here and there get the ball here and there, ****es people off here and there, EVERYTHING! Serena Williams is very highly entertaining to watch at a GS final. She just plays all out and we all know what she capable of. Up setting Safina like that? And Sharapova at 07? in less than an hour WOW.

Seriously though, Hingis and Henin were fun to watch for their variety. Seles was always fun 'cause of her intensity and the way she scrambled around the court clutching the racquet with both hands. Navritilova's game was always exciting. And I like watching Venus on grass.

Henin , just purely because of that beautiful single handed backhand ....

My favorite player of all times was


GABRIELA SABATINI


a true angel in the courts...


ADORE YA GABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nothing will match Navratilova/Evert encounters. I know it's a different era, but just because they were such opposites on every level I found their matches very exciting.

nat75
05-26-2009, 07:23 PM
Gabriela Sabatini=Part ballerina dancer, part boxer. A really graceful player with every shot in the book except her serve. Even her serve was beautiful to watch in a tragic poetic way.
Evonne Goolagong=Moved like a feline on court.
Matina Hingis=Graceful strokes and she had an amazing vision of the court.

05-26-2009, 07:29 PM
Gabby = especially in the third set of a hot day.:)

05-26-2009, 07:31 PM
definitely ivanovic

OP: Navratilova and Venus.

Could not stand the slow and predictable Hingis, Evert, failure-prone Sabatini, et al.....

nat75
05-26-2009, 08:08 PM
Venus is as interesting to watch as a rhino with a racket. I enjoyed seeing Navry play though.

paulorenzo
05-26-2009, 08:13 PM
navratilova all around. she had the ability to attack really well, which made her game very exciting to watch. but henin's point construction and shot making ability also put me at the edge of my seat.

Dilettante
05-26-2009, 08:13 PM
For the game, Henin, Hingis, Seles.

For the looks, Kournikova, Ivanovic. I always liked Martina Hingis too, I think he's hot in her own particular way.

bruce38
05-26-2009, 08:17 PM
Seles, because she was the best.

ronalditop
05-26-2009, 08:18 PM
serena williams...

just kidding, i used to enjoy watching martina hingis a lot, because of her game and her looks too.

Polaris
05-26-2009, 08:21 PM
Graf, Hingis, Navratilova

From the current players: Nobody :(

anointedone
06-05-2009, 12:33 AM
Current players? I would say Azarenka since she shows fight, great potential, and she actually uses her head rather than just bashes.

nat75
06-05-2009, 06:19 AM
Gabriela Sabatini for me.

wangs78
06-05-2009, 06:29 AM
Arantxa Sanchez Vicario. It was always amazing watching her fight against the bigger girls (Graf and Sabatini, etc.)

zagor
06-05-2009, 06:31 AM
Justine Henin for me by far,I also liked Seles.

Rhino
06-05-2009, 07:38 AM
Definitely Simona Halep, by a long long way.

Warriorroger
06-05-2009, 09:33 AM
Steffi Graf, the footwork, elegance combined with power, she was respected the most by the men's players.
