Do you ever LIKE a player because you LIKE their fans on this board?

Or even on the old Sanex WTA board? Or like a player MORE because of their fans?

Monica Seles. I was always neutral with her, but I like her fans a lot. She's one of my faves now.

As I mentioned in the other thread, it can work both ways, and their are certainly players I follow more and look out for their results, because I like the posters who support them...

Manchester City 2011 FA Cup winners! 2012 Premier League Champions! 2014 League Cup winners and Premier League Champions! At last!!!!!

I like the Williams sisters because of their loyal fan base, oh let me stop lying, I was already captivated way before I joined any fan base site

I got more sympathy for Venus more because of that interview that was posted here this week. (not that I disliked her before though)

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Yes. Sandrine Testud has really cool fans! And that made me notice her more.

Now, isn't this thread much more pleasant than that other mean thread?

This has happened to me fairly often. Eleni Daniilidou is one example of a player I like more now, thanks to her fans!!

I became more of a fan towards the Asians and Russians because of the experts Danker and Eggy! They introduced me into liking them!
