I'm too klutzy (and old) to play, but I love watching it. I've been a big fan of Maria Sharapova's ever since she won Wimbledon...she was so determined and played with such ferocity. I like how she gives it her all right up to the end, even when she's losing. It sucks that she was out for so long with her shoulder injury...her game just hasn't been the same since then. I also like Rafael Nadal a lot, for the same reason...he just never gives up. And when he loses, he does so with a smile.

Others I like: Caroline Wozniaki, Leyton Hewitt, Sarana Cirstea...

Others I can't stand: Roger Federer (arrogant) and Serena Williams (cry baby)

I play it occasionally and love watching it. I went to Wimbledon this year which was amazing, although it was only a ground pass I still got to see a few brilliant games such as Wawrinka vs Levine. I have to say my guilty pleasure is Federer but was really rooting for Murray this year. I don't really watch any other tennis apart from Wimbledon since I have no sports channels but never turn down a good match.

brandysnap, Rafa was out for a while with tendinitis, but he played Cincinnati this week and made it to the semi-finals. Unfortunately he got knocked out of the semis by Novak Djokovic yesterday. Even so, he looked pretty good and his knees didn't seem to be bothering him. I think he has a good chance in the US Open.

OMG so many similar hobbies. I was once a downhill mountain biker, crashed a few too many times and couldn't afford a new bike. Now I'm learning tennis slowly nd it's dayam frustrating. So much technique involved and the pros make it looks so easy (Bloody guys like Federer and his awesome backhand!). I refuse to go double backhand because I want to be like Federer lol :P. It pains me to hit into the net but I'll keep trying!
