Fan for a match

Have you ever become a fan of a player for a match just because you don't like their opponent? Today I'm a huge Alexandra Stevenson fan. Go Alexandra, you can beat Jelena!

Actually, me too. I become a fan of anyone who is playing JenCap or one of the sisters.... particularly if it's Jelena.

Not unllike Rebecca I usually root for the underdog, or the lesser known player, or if one is from USA, I usually go for the other. This means that I in 99% of the time I am on the other side than the commentator.

I can support a player, but then I am not a fan. what's a fan anyway?

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night
