A bandwagoner jumps on board something that looks popular but may not necessarily be any good, in reality.

Eg. Anna Chakvetadze fans

It works the other way too. Dani has been on fire since somebody posted one of those famous "Should she retire" threads after loss to Czink.

The annoying Chokomo threads even though she has a 3-1 mark against the two toughest competitors in Slams this year and has won 2 Slams.

I have seen nothing in my limited time on these boards like the Ivanovic fascination. Still the best of them all.

People proclaiming Serena all the way back after beating Myskina.

A lot of Maria is overrated and sucks threads after Wimbledon loss to Mauresmo.

Now I think there are some people here who sincerely feel she could beat Federer.

In a sense we are all bandwagoners, no? Some have just been on the wagon for longer

Yes, I jumped on this particular bandwagon six years ago when it looked like a certain someone was going to be the next big thing. Even though this bandwagon has a tendency to lose wheels during big matches and the service on board is awful, you couldn't pry me off with a crowbar. I'm riding to the bitter end.

Safina was awesome during the clay season. She's been rather mediocre since.
