Are there similarities between your favorites in all sports?

For example:

(this is the gayest list of sports here) I like tennis, skating and gymnastics. And my favorites have so much in common: Between Justine Henin, Michelle Kwan and Svetlana Khorkina. They are all considered more artistic performers, not necessarily known for their power in sports where there is a premium on power, so instead they've had to be more creative. They are all big fighters. And the BIGGEST similarity. None of them have ever won the biggest title in their field. Justine has never won Wimbledon; Michelle Olympic Gold; Sveta All-Around Olympic Gold...though they've all come second. (While I personally don't think Wimbledon is the biggest title in tennis, I know many can make the argument)'

You?

quiet resilence...

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

Re: Are there similarities between your favorites in all sports?

Within Women's tennis, my favorite players are Serena, Sharapova, Venus and Henin(in that order). They all share one common attribute - that never say die attitude. All are amazing competitors who always fight til the bitter end, especially when they play one another!!

Outside Women's tennis, my favorite athletes are Roger Federer and Michelle Kwan. They share a lot of common attributes, both emphasize great technique and artistry in their craft rather than athleticism/brute force, both are great champions many times over and considered by many to be the greatest ever in their respective sport, and both seem very kind, genuine and down to earth. Oh and another thing they have in common, unforunately, neither has an Olympic gold(for Roger, a singles gold).

I think after the Vancouver Games I might also become a big fan of Lindsay Vonn's.
