Your country or your favorite player?

I have a question with the olympic games coming in august. Are you going to cheer (in tennis) for your favorite player or for a player from your country?

Sharapova | Jankovic | Pavlyuchenkova

Re: Your country or your favorite player?

I'll cheer for Masha first of all... and then my countrywoman Kaia if she goes there

Whatever you do now,
the world still turns.

Re: Your country or your favorite player?

Probably my player, because as far as I'm concerned the Olympics have become just another stop on the tour--and not just for tennis. Yes, it's nice that everybody gets to show up and play, but the fact is with every sport pretty much having world championships and competition year in and year out, it's going to come down to the usual suspects whether you're talking about tennis or the 100 meters.

I'm frankly much more interested in the two remaining slams, Euro 2008, the start of CONCACAAF qualifying for the World Cup 2010, FC Dallas and the Cubs pursuit of a shot at their first championship in 100 years than I am the Olympics.
