Are you patriotic in Tennis?

Do u support players from your country.I must admit that Jelena is only girl for who I can wake up in the middle of the night to watch and she belongs to my Top 5.I love Ana and Bojana support them unless they play Lucie,Chak or Jelena...TBH I love them,but they arent in my main favs.
What about you?

Re: Are you patriotic in Tennis?

I was patriotic when I started to follow tennis. Not anymore though, as those players was retiring I didn´t find a way to support our young players. Daniela, Zuza Kucova and doubles specialists Mertinak and Zelenay are the only who are still playing and they are on TOP of my fave list...but as they will retire I think there will be no Slovak even in TOP 10 in my fave list in both ATP or WTA.

Re: Are you patriotic in Tennis?

Not at all, I don't really care for any of the German players except for Julia Görges who I like a tiny bit... but not really enough to be a fan.

I´ve picked my faves solely on their personality, I would never be able to root for someone who I can't stand just because they have a successful game or hold the same passport than me.

Re: Are you patriotic in Tennis?

No...although a couple of times at U.S. Open when Jen Cap was playing a big match, I would let the enthusiastic crowd take me there, but that's also because I was a big Jen fan already.
Otherwise...I just like who I like and am not influenced by what country they are from.

Re: Are you patriotic in Tennis?

Yes. All British players are at least second tier favourites of mine. They'd have to have something very off putting about them not to be.

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

Re: Are you patriotic in Tennis?

The country I was born in doesn't have any players to support. But, even if it did, that wouldn't be a contributing factor.
I choose my faves through game style, personality off court, and whether or not I consider them great role models for the future of tennis.

Re: Are you patriotic in Tennis?

Nope. I like Serena because I like Serena, not because she's American like me. Most of my favorite players (Sharapova, Ivanovic, Wozniacki, Lisicki, Li Na, etc.) are not from the US. Conversely, Melanie Oudin is as American as apple pie and I can't stand the sight of that little bitch.

Re: Are you patriotic in Tennis?

I'm not patriotic. It really annoys me when people talk to me about Andy Murray because they know I like tennis.

Hlavackova, Strycova, Venus, Serena, Schiavone, Hradecka, Safarova, Cetkovska, Pliskova, Kasatkina, Putintseva, Ostapenko, Gasparyan
