Nope. my background pic is Del Po with the US Open title

I'm also a very angry person when my favourites are playing and i get mad when someone says something to me.

I sometimes stop watching my favourite players matches when they are losing because i feel i'm jinxing them by watching

Shvedova-Muguruza-Garcia-Lisicki

Re: You know you are an obsessed tennis fan when you..

- When you travel 6000 miles to watch your fave play qualies

- When you're still at a tourney after midnight waiting for your fave to lose their R1 match

- When you get excited because there's livestream coverage of women's doubles

- When your dream tourney to attend is Tashkent Open
