How "psychotic" are you about your fav's chances at Wimbledon?

I have a summer job and work a Saturday-Wednesday schedule. But I am so psychotic and loyal to Venus that I have already asked and been approved to have the Saturday of the Wimbledon final off because I fully expect Venus to be there. I'll be thrilled and happy I'm dedicated to her if she makes it there, but pissed off and angry if she doesn't. What are your stories?

RIDE OR DIE! Down for Venus Williams

I GOT 5 ON IT!!!!! VENUS WILLIAMS 5 TIME WIMBLEDON CHAMPION!!!!!

I was going to take the entire two weeks off, but since Petrova is no longer playing, I'm going back to work.

I don't have any really interesting personal stories, I do remember, however, someone failing all of their exams because of the Australian Open...

I wouldn't say I was psychotic but more psychic about my fav's chances and something in my tummy is saying yes this is hers.

i'll be working and won't be able to choose my days off.

i don't know if i really can handle Venus' matches, anyway, i feel like it is the end of everything everytime she loses a point.

to new beginnings.

I failed one exam because of Roland Garros

And If Marta played very good I would only watch her and wouldn't even go out with friends till she loses

I gave birth whilst watching justine vs hingis this year I had to have the t.v on and the right channel. I am still the talk of that labour ward. That is how crazy i am about tennis.
In 2003 i was vising my sister over seas and since she had no cable, i went to her next door neighbour who was rumoured to have cable, introduced myself and asked if i could watch the AO. With a bemused look and extreme reluctance she said yes. (didn't let that bother me). I spent my honeymoon night watching AO. I m not psychotic, i blame the time difference.
I am sucking up to my neighbour big time so she can look after my little girl when Venus comes to the Hopman Cup. Venus better show up!!!

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

I'm officially on leave for five of the ten working days within wimbledon fortnight, mainly because I've got tickets to go up there ----- twice! Added to that, I am "working from home" this Monday, allegedly because the car is being serviced.

Kim is still more or less my favourite, but I fear that she has very little chance of winning, unless someone else polishes off Justine before the semis or Kim finds another way of beating her (I thought strangulation in the locker room when no-one's looking might be a possibility ).

Put it this way, I'd like Kim or otherwise Amelie to win, I'll be disappointed if Venus or Justine win and I don't mind anyone else winning it, even Chucky, whom I used to detest in a former life.
