when your favorites face off...

how do you decide who will you cheer for? or when your least favorites face off?

for me, when it came to the players i disliked, there was a total hierarchy: i always cheered for monica only when she faced the williams' and serena only when she faced venus, and novotna only when she faced either of the three i named, etc. etc.

when it came to favorite players, though, i always have to take the circumstances, like sometimes i'd go for arantxa over anna, sometimes i'd reverse it, and depending i'd want lleyton or juan carlos, so, i always had a set cheering pattern for the least favorites, but it varied with the players i liked
anyone else?

It will always be Arantxa, hall of famer! and martina hingis and kim clijsters - amazing legends
ana ivanovic and the italian girls, especially pennetta (forza azzurre! RG CHAMP FRANCESCA AND FINALIST SARA!)
aga, vika, sam, na in the next tier
NEVER say "I don't care who wins, I just want good tennis"

If my favs are on equal status I cheer for both and respond to good play in general.

For instance, I like both Justine and Kim and root for both of them when they're playing each other on tv. Everyone around me thinks I've gone nuts because they'll hear "ohhhh good shot Justine" "OMG Kim, great get", etc.

Amélie Mauresmo, 2009 GDF Suez, 2007 Proximus Diamond Games, 2006 World No. 1 ,Wimbledon Champion, Proximus Diamond Games, Gaz, Australian Open, 2005 YEC, Advanta Chamionships, Italian Open, Proximus Diamond Games, 2004 World No. 1, Advanta Championships, Generali Linz, Rogers Cup, Italian Open, German Open, 2003 J&S Cup, Advanta Championships, 2002 Rogers AT&T Cup, Dubai Open, 2001 Gaz, Nice, Amelia Island, and Eurocard Ladies German Open, 2000 Adidas International, and 1999 Bratislava Champion

There's a fine line between love and hate; that line is called family!

No one does things exactly the way I want them to. No one ever has. It’s a problem they have!

AZARENKA!

when two of my favs face off, i just like to see a good match with the best player winning, or sometimes, i cheer for a certain player depending on the situation. when two players i dont like play, i really dont give a shit about the match.

azarenka - pavlyuchenkova - li - jankovic
garcia - bencic - paszek - rus - kanepi - kuznetsova - stephens
bouchard - karatantcheva - larcher de brito - voegele - lim - mladenovic

mary pierce - forever #1
vaidisova - kournikova - golovin - henin
the boys - federer - gasquet - del potro - haase - nishikori

always always Daniela first. always.

I hate it when Nastya and LenaD plays, but recently I've been hoping Lena would win at least one important match against Nastya, it's about time.

When Venus and Serena played in 2000, I wanted to the player who was most likely to win the tournament to win. Like at Wimbledon SF I wanted Serena to win because Venus didn't have a good record against Lindsay at that time.

Now, Venus all the way. Serena beat her too many times in big matches.

I can't pick between Justina and Anastasia...I just hope it's a good match.

I actually wanted Nastya to beat Serena at the YEC this year tho

Last four encounters:

2003 Leipzig: Myskina def. Henin-Hardenne 3-6 6-3 6-3
2003 YEC: Henin-Hardenne def. Myskina 7-5 5-7 7-5
2004 Indian Wells: Henin-Hardenne def. Myskina 6-1 6-1
2004 Olympics : 7-5 5-7 8-6

Well, not counting Indian Wells, it was always very nice, frustrating, sad, brilliant, wonderful and very disappointing at once! But still I am already waiting impatiently for the next match-up...AusOpen: 7-6 6-7 10-8? When my two faves face each other it always totally freaks me out ...I just wished Nastya would stop choking against Justine...great fun!

Aarrrgghhh! It's a nightmare when my faves face off. Whomever plays best I want to win initially, then I want the other to win, and so on! I'm so fickle.

Against anyone, I will alwasy cheer for Justine!
the rest, well, i always go for the underdog, or of whoever really needs the win.
Like when it was Nastya against Elena @ YEC, even i like Elena more like she is my #3 & Nastya my #4, I cheered & rooted for Nastya.

after that the world stops for me a bit.

Well I like Elena moree than Nastya, but it depends on the context I guess. I didn't really care who won in the FO final, but after that I kind of hoped that Lena would win the Kremlin against Nastya. Then the YEC, I wanted Nastya to win because then she can move into the semifinals.

Anastasia Myskina

Daniela Hantuchova

I always cheer for Maria over Serena and Venus. Always Serena over Venus.
With my hated players, I do the same.
