I think that there are certain players that I enjoy watching on the men's and women's side. There's some players that I don't enjoy watching on both sides. I enjoy watching Serena [Williams] play, I enjoy watching [Agnieszka] Radwanska, [Maria] Sharapova. And right now there's a lot of young, up-and-coming players. I like watching someone like a Madison Keys, for example, at the Australian Open, where she's just really going for shots and playing fearless tennis.
