Question Do you ALWAYS support your own country players?

Do you always support your own country players no matter what or do you have other favorites as well?
Please give some feed back about the why and when.
Thanks!

I haven't.
Before Justine came along I supported for Steffi and Martina Navratilova.
At the ATP I support Federer and in earlier years my favorite was Borg.

Of course when it's Fed cup or Davis cup time I always root for Belgium.

With the Aussie girls more often than not, but I absolutely loathe Lleyton Hewitt.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

My Faverite is Lindsay but I like Alicia and Sam as well and I can't stand Nicole Pratt and can't wait for her to retire.

Re: Do you ALWAYS support your own country players?

My top 3 favourite players are all kiwi girls, but well my most unliked player is also a kiwi girl.

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

No not at all. Tennis is an individual sport its about representing yourself not your country.

Hmm usually, although I don't like Pratt and am indifferent to Stosur. I'd support my faves over Australians when it comes down to it.
