Li Na, I have followed you since 2004. I didn't always get to see you play, but I kept track on all the news about you. It has been great to see you mature as a player and a person and see your tennis mature also. Thanks for all the memories of the past 10 years and I look forward to future memories. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

Greetings from Wales. Happy Birthday to by far my favorite WTA star, Jelena Jankovic. I've loved watching you play since 2008 when I was 10 years old. Even though I'm not native to Serbia, I still support you as much as they do. You inspired me to start taking tennis as a hobby and even my best shot is the backhand down the line, coincidentally. I know you've got what it takes to do well this season, as seen in Brisbane and Doha. Just keep your head down and focus on each game at a time and I'm sure you'll do it.
