ATTN Tennis Fans

Now that Hewitt and Kuerten are out of the Australian Open, and Agassi and Rafter aren't playing (why, oh why did Rafter retire?) who are you rooting for? And don't say Sampras...(who, in my opinion, is living proof that evolution did occur...even if he IS a great player).

This is, assuming that there ARE tennis fans here. Or else I look like a complete loser.

Great post! I'm sorry, but I love Pete Sampras. I have to like him. I play his style of game.

Otherwise, look out for:

Federer
Phillopousis
Henman

Look what you did, you little JERK!

too bad Poussi is already out of there...

Roddick is a contender as is Sampras (though they will play in the 4th round), but we all know that Goran Ivanisevic will beat Sampras in a classic 5-set Finals (either that or the more likely scenario featuring a Sampras victory over someone like Federer or Kafelnikov in the Finals)

Sampras :P
Kafelnikov

As for the ladies, I hope that Hingis will FINALLY finish her Grand Slam drought.

Why O why does everyone want Martina Fungus to win? She could groan her opponent off court and win by default I guess.

And did any of you Aussies hear what Hewitt was babbling on about after his game? Does he need a good hard smack in the head or what. Poor form. Really bad. Oh thats right, hes still a kid and doesnt know how to conduct himself yet. BLAH.

I'd love to see Williams win. She is fascinating to watch.

If Henman or Rusedski win I will cry with laughter.

Actually they are now playing each other in the next round. That's about as big as tennis gets in England! haha

I for one, agree w/ Stagman & Saracene and hope Hingis takes the ladies's championship. It's about time, she needs it. But she'll have to face all the big 'contendas' along the way....

And isn't Rafter retired now? Isn't that why he's not playing?


And for the record: I don't HATE Sampras...I love serve and volley, and he IS the best. I'm just not overally fond of him. I admire him, etc, but I think I still may be sore about his personality. He's said some rude things in the past...forgive and foget Petey?
The Williams sisters I can't stand.
