How does your family think about your fav??

My family doesn't like Martina at all!Well they think that i'm to0 obsessed by Martina and they are always rooting for her opponent. One time i had a HUGE fight with my mom about Martina and she said that i see Martina as a god or something and that i'm crazy but i defended myself and Martina and then my mother said : I hope that she will break all her bones and muscles That was so mean

Martina Hingis

my whole family disliked steffi because I was obsessed too, they think all troubles I had were because I started to watch her, yeah right
my mother still likes monica for the simple reason that I was a Steffi fan

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

My family thinks I'm too obsessed with Kim (OK maybe they're right )
My mom and my little sister totally don't care about tennis
My dad likes Kim and he always wants her to win except when she plays Justine

My family (plus friends) thinks Martina is an arrogant brat

They don't really have an opinion on Amanda

It's thanks to my mother that I became an no problem father is rooting for his oponents every time...especially when it's the classic Andre-Pete match-up
They both like Kim and Justine, they're not real fans though....they are not so interested in WTA-tennis....allthough my mother loves to root against Martina together with me

My family absolutely adore Eleni Daniilidou because its not often a Greek sportswoman makes headlines They were all watching her progress at Aus Open and sometimes even ask me how she is doing on tour

As for Iva Majoli...they dont know who she is

My folks and I never talk about tennis. If they know anything about any of the players, I wouldn't know.

My Mum loves Kim! She thinks she's really nice but her favourite players are Tammy and Paradon because they are Thai. My Dad is a right muppet and takes the mickey out of ALL the players I like! I mean Im a big Hewitt fan and last night he made so comment about Lleyton being a cheapskate cos' said something like "Look! he can't afford his own water! see! he has to nick loads of bottles out of the cool box!" ugh! How immature!

My parents like to hear about Justine from time to she is playing, her ranking, and all that good stuff, but they think I am obsessed. They are right! I can't help it though! It worries them sometimes, but hey! They'll get over it! It's what makes me happy that's important!

they don't think much of anna. and actually rub it in sometimes when she loses. but what can you do? it's not like i'll stop supporting someone even if people don't like her. besides, it's something you get used to. and it makes it all the more satisfying once she gets her form back.

Goooo anNa!
good luck to anna, martina and daniela!

I don't really have many problems with my family because nobody in my family really cares about men's tennis except my brother... he's a big Andre and Pete fan and hates Lleyton for the simple fact that I adore him and cheers for his opponents but Lleyton wins so often that he doesn't get to rub it in too much lol... and women's tennis, well everybody in my family likes Kim although some have other favorites, like my sister with Serena !

My mum also likes Martina Hingis as well but sometimes sometimes when she watches a match she will get really excited and that just annoys me as she doesn't even know what she is cheering for half the time. So then she asks me alot of questions about it!

My dad is not really interested in tennis. He's more into rugby football but he admires the Williams sisters. At times he'd ask me: " Why do they wear those odd coloured dresses? My mother doesn't even care to know anything about tennis. She would tell me that she has more " worthy things to attend to then to make idols out of people." (yup! she's very religious and commited).
My sisters are just as crazy as I am with the Williams sisters. So yeah that's how my story goes
