Favorite pro tennis player(s):
Who else but the fab Fed? ;-) Nadal for his ferociousness on court and his shy & sensitiveness off court.

2011:

Ernest Gulbis might have some potentials if he gets more serious with the game. ;-) Mario Ancic, just retired recently, will be missed. Monfils is fun to watch but he needs to cut down his silly acrobatic moves while in the match.

And a new edition: I am becoming a fan of Milos Raonic. He can serve big with a very smooth service motion. And he has the groundstrokes too. Still a developing player. Very exciting to watch. Will definitely be keeping two eyes on him. ;-)

Looking to see Victoria Azarenka winning a major soon and watching Yanina Wickmayer to mature more as a player. And it's always a treat to watch Dulko/Pennetta in doubles and to see Kirilenko in action.



2012 Update:

Vika came through with her first Slam. :-) Keep it up!!!!!!!

Gulbis, what happened to him? Won the LA Open then dropped off again. :-(

Milos, go Milos go. :-) Defending his title in San Jose as we speak. Still have high hopes for him. What a great person on and off the courts.

Still looking for Grigor Dimitrov, the Baby Federer, to become a threat on the tour.

What's happening to the Dulko/Pennetta duo? Hope they find their way back on top again.



2013 Update:

Chairman Fed is still the sentimental favorite. Rafa, we miss you on the tour.

Jerzy Janowicz. New kid on the block. After making the Paris Masters final, he had climbed to #26 and will be seeded at Slams. Keeping an eye on him.

Milos continues his climb to the upper echelon of the tennis world. Can he break into the top 10 this year?

Will Grigor break through this year? Finished 2012 in Top 50 for the first time. Hope that the trend continues. First priority, break into Top 30 so he doesn't need to face seeded players in early rounds in Masters Series and Slams. This can be the break out year......

Can Steve Johnson be a force in the pro tour? Very interested to see his progress in the pro tour after the highly decorated collegiate career.

Will Juan Martin Del Potro disrupt the Elite Four this year? I believe the "Tower of Tandil" will be the one to do some damage to the Elite Four at the Masters and Slams this year.

Gulbis......... What happened to you? :-(

Agnieszka, can this be the year for you to win a Slam? Great making the finals at Wimbledon last year. Can't wait to see her win a Slam this year. :-)

Andrea Petkovic....... 2012 was mostly sidelined with injury. Can she make a comeback this year? Petkorazzi still rocks. :-)
My tennis skill (please check your NTRP if you know it):
Not bad
On the court, I am a:
lefty
My favorite local courts:
As long as it's a tennis court that I can get on to play, it's my favorite. :-)

Maria Jose is great, I love her game The quality of the WTA now I feel bad, I just like  veteran players. Other young people I think are terrible

Interesting.  People are just getting their acceptances?  That is not good for me.  I got a denial 3 weeks ago.  They need to start treating digital media like traditional media....
