Only speaking for myself


I'm certainly guilty of that posting bias, though I follow Danielle as well, but probably not quite as much (I was pretty pumped about her recent play leading up to the AO). I've probably always followed men's tennis more than women's going back to the days of Ashe, Borg, and Connors, etc. Not sure exactly why at this point - I enjoy watching both matches equally now. I did attend more of the men's matches in C'ville during their glory runs and before, and also because there have been 4 or 5 former men's players in the tournaments. Maybe that's part of it. Last, since I don't have cable, the only Pro tennis I'm able to watch are the Challenger matches from time to time on the ATP website. So, it was fun to watch a set and a half the other day :-)

Danielle's achievements are fantastic and I love that she comes from the public courts. Certainly no disrespect intended. She's already GOAT of UVa players IMHO.
