How do you react when you fave's are drawn beside eachother?

For me its Hantuchova and Zheng I wanted both to have a good run here
I suppose I should pick Zheng, because she lost their last match I think, still disappointed though.

Well I suppose we might at least get 2 good matches then - apparently Dokic played well at RG, if she keeps it up could be entertaining against Ivanovic. With my fav's on the other hand neither have had good form

Re: How do you react when you fave's are drawn beside eachother?

Me too and for the 2nd year running. My three favourite players are in order Niculescu, Shvedova and Rybarikova. Last year Yari lost in qualifying and Monica drew Magda. This year Monica drew Yari. That makes it two years in a row my two favourite in the tournament have played each other in the 1st round. The odds of that happening are more than 16,000 to one. FUCK. And this is the tournament that I look forward to every year and go to practically every day for the 1st week.

I honestly can't begin to describe how deflated and totally crushed this leaves me feeling. It just feels like all the emotional excitement and anticipation I have had for this tournament has just been stamped on and beaten into a flattened piece of roadkill.

I´m little bit disappointed, when my huge faves are playing eachother

For example Wimbledon´s QR1 this year: Gehrlein vs. Spears

Anger, rage, and fury.

None of my faves have ever played each other though, I don't think

Total Livid.

It sucks. It happened at the French Open with Dokic and Dementieva and although I was happy Elena made it through I said a pretty nasty comment in the results thread I wish I could erase.

LUCIE SAFAROVA!!

Madison Brengle!!
Tsvetana Pironkova, Maria Sharapova, Serena Williams, Lauren Davis, Petra Kvitova, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, Timea Bacsinszky, Madison Keys, Kaia Kanepi, Klara Zakopalova, Agnieszka Radwanska

Elena Dementieva - Always my number 1 2012 FITD Olympic Gold Medal Champion!

Kim and Amélie, at the time they both played well...

Re: How do you react when you fave's are drawn beside eachother?

Before the match I always think I'll be happy that at least one of the faves will go through. Never feel this way after the match.
These kind of situations are always not easy to deal with. (Today I had yet another experience of it watching Rosmalen doubles final.)

Re: How do you react when you fave's are drawn beside eachother?

It is tough,for instance when Monica played Serena in the 1999 U.S. Open quarters as much as I loved Monica and Had NEVER rooted against her I found myself pulling strongly for my new love Serena.After that I only rooted against Monica when she played Venus or Serena,rooted against Venus when she played Serena,and the VERY few times I rooted against Serena was because of Venus[during her losing streak to Serena]NOW I Never pull against Serena,My All Time Favorite.

Serena-Easily The #1-True-All-Time Greatest! You Are In A Class By Yourself.
Venus-Luv you.You rule with on court class.
Monica Seles-A Great Player and A Great Career
#22 FOR THE QUEEN!! "Serena Derangement Syndrome"is Real-You Sad Bitter Pathological Haters/Liars in the Tennis media And on TF-Nothing You Say Or Write will Diminish Her GREATNESS!!

Re: How do you react when you fave's are drawn beside eachother?

I only have one truly HUGE fave, Ana. Regardless of who is on the other side of the net, be they one of my faves or someone I hate, I consider each and every one of them to be the scum of the earth when they're playing Ana.

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .
