Is there anyone with a heart who is NOT rooting for Fran???

Obviously no live-scoring in GM, but my god, this woman plays tennis the way it should be and she has the heart of a champion.

I'm torn.. I want Fran to win the title, but I doubt she would get past Na Li and i've already expressed how I feel about her.

Anyways, the woman is amazing.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

If you're not a fan of Francesca Schiavone, then you're not a real tennis fan. Period.

I'm a fan of tennis but not a fan of Schiavone. See,it's possible. Most men don't give a shit about women's tennis anyway so you're wrong.

Why are you referring to yourself as "most men?" The personal pronoun "I" would have been more appropriate.

But shouldn't a tennis fan love good quality tennis despite the sex, race, age, etc since the term tennis has no bias on all these criterias? And since I think Fran plays good quality tennis, I am a fan of her.

If you are a fan of tennis but don't like women's tennis than a more specific way to describe u is a men's tennis fan not tennis fan in general.

And no, I wasn't rooting for her. Caro is one of my favorite players of all time and Schiavone is one of my least favorite players of all time, so needless to say I was heavily rooting for Caro

Yes, because the only criteria that a player has to meet to be a favourite of yours is to be "hot"

Schnyder Jankovic Petrova Kvitova Schiavone

Zvonareva Kleybanova Mattek-Sands Strycova

Niculescu Lisicki Razzano Koukalova Errani Pironkova

Baltacha (RIP) Robson Watson Gent Konta and the rest of the Brits

I wasn't talking about myself. Anyone can be a tennis fan. There are no rules like if you don't like someone you're not a real tennis fan. There is a lot of people that don't like Federer who plays the epitome of tennis. What does that make them if not being a fan of Schiavone eliminates you from being a real tennis fan?

It makes them not real tennis fans also.

Well I do automatically like all hot players, but there are plenty of non-hot players that I like as well, like Kim and Monica Seles*
