Who do you support more: Underdog or Favorite

Another age old question

Who do you support more, the underdog or the favorite?

Comment below

Cheers

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

totally depends. if i don't care much about either player, i'd go for the underdog. i never root against my favorites though, but overall i guess i like upsets and near upsets. they're exciting.

I support my favorite, Lindsay Davenport, reguardless.

I have "secondary faves" that I root for, but outside of that I just hope for a good match between whom ever is playing if my faves are not involved when I'm watching tennis.

Depends on who is playing. If a player I like is the favorite then I root for her. If a player I like is the underdog I root for her. If I don't like either player then I go for the underdog.

irrespective of favourite or underdog - I always hope the best player on the day wins (most of the time!)

if i don't really care for 2 people who are playing, i usually go for the player who's game i like the most. So in answer to the thread question, neither.

Depends on who is playing, If i dont really care about who wins i will ussually go for the under dog. Although i like seeing the top players play each other in the later rounds as well so i dont know.
