Superstitions when ur faves playing?

i have many superstitions when alicia's playing:

-when the draw first comes out and she has a really bad draw, i dont say its a bad draw until she has actually lost, bcos i dont want to jinx it like this week, i could have said her draw sucks but i didnt and she ended up winning
-whenever im playing PAW at a tourney where alicia is, my first paw of everyday is always Molik over whoever. i also never choose against her in CAD
-when im playing the race and alicia is playing, my first pick is always alicia
-in the order of play threads, i always devote one post to solely wish alicia luck
i then do another post wishing all my other faves luck
-whenever theres a who will win thread involving alicia, i always say alicia will win, no matter what
-i used to not like watching her on live scoreboards, bcos the first two times i did she had very bad losses (to nagyova and tanasugarn). this trend was sort of killed when i witnessed her win stockholm and beat dementieva and myskina at the olympics
-also, i generally dont say anything negative about her until shes lost in a tourney (unlike another alicia fan ). when shes actually lost the claws come out

does anyone else have superstitions with their faves?

*IF* I look at the draw and figure out quality/ranking points in advance, K-Lina will lose early. If I don't print the draw and figure out round by round points that she can gain and what ranking she can achieve, she tends to win a match (or 2 sometimes ).

If I'm following scores and she's winning, I don't move. Like not at all. If she's losing I move around until she comesback, then I stop moving around the house.

I was worse with Monica... when on tv at a crucial point, like break point down, I'd hold my breath. Completely subsconsiously until someone pointed this out to me.

1.) Don't move
2.) Don't blink
3.) Don't breathe
4.) Pass out and come to in time for the last game

- I never take a break while Venus is down a point

- I never watch the last point of the last game if its in favor of her opponent

I know what some of you may say "well he doesn't watch that much of Venus games" so I'm going to laugh in advance :lol

You should know better then to oppose Veegeta!!

I'm using my example from Daniela, since she is my #1, but this also implies to my other faves

- I don't predict or guess the scoreline (even if i kno she'll win or "loose") and I don't let any members from the Cocktail Party (Daniela's forum) do so either

- In some cases I use reverse physcology and PAW against Daniela

- If I'm watching the match and it's tensing up, when the opponent is about to serve I yell "Miss! Miss! Miss!" or something along those lines

- Don't vote on polls of "Who You think will Win" or Player 1 vs Player 2 [poll], bla bla (again, this refer to my first point )

- Don't realli talk about the match to anyone (don't wanna jinx or get hopes up)

- Wish Daniela luck in the tourney thread at the Cocktail Party, her good luck thread at the tourney forum and that's it, nothing else on the GM.

When my faves are playing.. especially Daniela's playing ..

- i wont predict scores and same as dont wanna see the predicted scores..
- i wont vote on the who will win thread.. well i did the last time! see what happened
- i feel more comfortable when people expect Daniela not to win.. like voting for her on PAWs and Polls .. weird huh?! cause i think they are jinxing her..
- i try jus to wish her luck in one thread..
- i dont follow the scores usually.. i dosconnect from the intenet often..
- i dont make tournie threads on the CP i stoped doin that..
- i pray..
- i dont do bad things the day before she plays!hahaha! when she loses i do horrible things.. haha

this is tru. i forgot to add this.
i noticed a trend in PAW
when the majority of people PAW against Daniela, she shows them, and wins her match. when the majority of people PAW for Daniela, expecting her to win, she looses!
it's scaringly tru!

example: mostly everyone PAWed against Daniela vs. Douchevina = Daniela wins, then when those people saw how Daniela could win they PAWed for her against Sharapova = Daniela lost

curses!

lol kinda dumb, but I always tear out a piece of paper the day Momo plays, and write "Momo momo momo momo all over it" and then stick it in my pocket.

everytime I did that, she never lost a game

But it takes a while

MARIA SHARAPOVA: "Amélie, you know it doesn't really matter at this point. I mean, I'd love to, I mean, Amélie is No. 1 in the world. She's playing great tennis. You know, I love that challenge of going out there and competing against the best in the world."
You'd love to what, Maria?
