How often do you change you FAVE PLAYER?

How many times often do you change your fave player?Like when you have a fave say Venus and she starts losing a lot then you change to Serena cuz she wins more.Or you like Martina then she wasnt winning and you say,O I need a new fave cuz the player I am cheering is losing to much,but no matter what and how often times my faves lose I wont desert them

Lendl,Navratilova,Graf,Venus

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

I still haven't changed. It's Venus all the way baby even if she were ranked 103.

Venus fan forever.. a true fan here so will never change until the Goddess retires.

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

Sir Richard Williams

Not counting momentary diversions, such as a brief Gaby Sabatini flirtation, and a traitorous Graf fling while Monica was out , I have only had 3 main favorites in the 16 years I have followed women's tennis: Navratilova, Seles, Henin-Hardenne.

My anti-faves, however, change more often. I hate to recall how strongly I once rooted against Steffi, whom I later grew to love.

I am a fan of the WS almost equally. I lean a little bit more towards Venus, but when Serena wasn't doing so well, I was rooting for her to win Grand Slams. Now that Serena has her "slam". I am rooting for Venus to win the French and Wimby. Basically whichever WS is not doing so well, I am rooting for them to win.

I admit that I didn't root as hard anymore for serena as I used too simply because I don't want her to win the real grand slam. I am bad I know (but people who know me, know the reason behind that so you can't say I am not faithfull )

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

irma, is it because you don't want her to match Steffi's achievement?
