Confused! Who do you support, your #1 fave or your country woman??

I'm talking about the match between Anna K. vs Wynne P.
Anna is my #1 fave at this moment, and she really needed the win to gain her way to be back as a top player. but on the other hand i really wanted for Wynne to win aswell! i am the type of person who will support my country. but this is a tough one to choose?

if you are in a condition like this, which player you will root for??

thanks

Maju terus Tenis Indonesia!

I usually start watching the match and root for whoever is losing.

Rebecca, that's what I do too! I guess if Aus played Belgium in Fed Cup I'd have to go Aus though.

You better support Wynne, for sure! She needs more point to upgrade her rankings than Kournikova's.
But okay... if Wynne or Angie meets Monica one day, I'll cheer for Monica. Hmm... maybe it will happen in this week. Hopefully!!!

Venus, THE QUEEN
Serena THE WARRIOR
Miss you Monica Wynne Angie Anna Chakvy Marion Li Na
Good luck: Svetlana Simona

Well, my personal choice between Wynne and Anna K would be Wynne. But I'm not from Indonesia so this doesn't appeal to me. But still, yesterday, Kim had to play agains Meilen and I like them both a lot. I wanted Kim to win a bit more, but I wouldn't be mad if Meilen had won it

I agree with 2Ace2, I will cheer more on Wynne than Anna. But I wouldn't sad if Anna win the match.

Both are my favourite players (ahead of any other players), but I like Wynne more, because she is representing my country

Smile... When you do, it may change someone's day


=Good luck to my favourite players: Mirjana Lucic, Elena Dementieva, Li Na, Maria Kirilenko, Daniela Hantuchova, Vera Zvonareva, Zheng Jie, Venus Williams =

I support my no.1 fave every time, im not the kind of person who roots for players just because they happen to live in the same country.

Men nr natten r ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du r nga, spr av ett moln
I en drm om att fly till ngonting nytt

Och du hller s hrt och nr lngtan blir svr
S r jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i ngonting nytt
