Fans on TF which made you like or dislike a player?

Do you think any fans here on TF have influenced your thoughts about a player? For me:

Like
Jankovic. She really has a funny fanbase, they have a hint of sarcasm and I really started to like Jelena

Dislike
Definitely Radwanska. I liked her back in 2006-2007 but her fans here are so obsessed and annoying, they really put me off Agnieszka

J. GOERGES - A. WOZNIAK - Y. WICKMAYER - E. BOUCHARD - Ka. PLISKOVA

Ivanovic and Youzhny/Kohlschreiber.

Give back 2006 US Open to Justine

Fans of Radwanska made me hate her, but I didn't love her anyway...
The same with Domachowska.

Re: Fans on TF which made you like or dislike a player?

I would like to think I'm smart enough to differentiate a fan base form a player... No fan here is an official spokesperson for any player as far as I am aware?

Everybody here knows that but still I think it has a certain influence even if I know that these poster don't have anything in common with Agnieszka. It doesn't make her a worse person just because of her fans. But I think it can affect thoughts in a certain way.

Re: Fans on TF which made you like or dislike a player?

Do people not have enough conviction in their own choices that they would be so easily swayed? Really?

"If you practice for ten years, you may begin to please yourself, after 20 years you may become a performer and please the audience, after 30 years you may please even your guru, but you must practice for many more years before you finally become a true artist—then you may please even God." --Ali Akbar Khan, 1922-2009

Jankovic/Serena fans are fun. But I like both those players anyway.

Wozniacki fans are overly-defensive, humourless and hypocritical. But I still like Caro.

If one is at first neutral and then sees that a fan base, I don't want to point fingers, of a certain Danish player, praises her to be the next coming of Jesus, you can't help but start to dislike the player.

All this says to me is that these are a bunch of weak minded individuals who allow themselves to be persuaded based on the opinions or actions of others. This is nothing to celebrate people.

I am not conceited, I am just convinced

agreed. I didn't like the williams sisters to begin with, but their fanbase really doesn't help the cause either.
