Many people don't like Marion - because of the unnatural serve, the two-handed forehand, the constant jumping between points and when receiving serve. But Marion definitely grew on me with time, and I usually enjoy seeing her fight it out on court. While she's currently on her way to a spectacular loss in the first round in Toronto (6-3 2-0 to Voskoboeva at the moment), she usually plays with so much heart and desire to win, that I just can't help but root for her. As for all the unusual things she does - if that's what helps her get to the top, what's wrong with that? Not everyone can play like Marion's favorite player, Roger Federer (Happy birthday, Roger, by the way :)).
P.S. You might notice that I skipped days 9-10. That's because I almost haven't watched any now-retired players, so I can't really pick a favorite. Honorable mention goes to Elena Dementieva, whom I liked very much.
