I was just about to let go of Muguruza, then she goes and has a good year. Maddening in a whole new way. On the men's side, Gulbis. I'm surprised he's still plugging away, going out in R1 of Challengers or Tour qualies. He didn't have a tour-level main-draw win this year.

I came around on Radwanska and Wozniacki eventually, once I appreciated good defense, so the reverse effect.

I actually try to let go of Mugu and then I catch one of her matches and I simply can't. I just like her, and that is it. Regardless of how many times she will break my heart on court.
(I did manage to do that with Kvitova, although I still like to watch her play).

I have admired the game of tennis for some time now and have seen many of the greats of the game in my 57 years of my lifetime. I have never really picked up the game that well, and am more of a novice player. I have excelled more at running in my lifetime. So what these players I have seen do over my lifetime have completely awed me many times. They are the greats like: John McEnroe, Bjorn Borg, Jimmy Connors, Ivan Lendl, Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djovokic, Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova, Tracy Austin, Steffi Graf, Monica Seles, Venus Williams, Serena Williams, Kim Clijsters, Lindsey Davenport, Martina Hingis, Maria Sharapova, Justine Henin, & Ashleigh Barty.

Aces, you just basically mentioned every top player of the last 50 years ;)
You missed Mandlikova and Vilas.

Well, I have been around for 57 years. :lol: I also could have easily mentioned the likes of Wilander, Edberg, Becker, Sabatini, Novotna.

Radwanska I did come around to. Never liked Wozniacki - still don't care for her. Not that she cares, but I think of her and Domi as the Kardashians of the tennis circuit.
