Superstitions to help your faves?

What superstitions do you have to help your faves win matches? Do you wear a lucky shirt, or lucky color? Do you cross your arms/legs one way to help them hold serve, and the other to help them break? Do you sit/stand in a certain position? Do you utter any "magic words" to help them? Do you eat a certain food on days when they are playing?

Just curious what you do. (We know Tine does her tickling. )

It seems that whenever Venus plays, she starts losing when I'm watching her; however, whenever I turn the channel, she starts winning.

If there were any superstition, I think changing the channel whenever Venus is playing from time to time would be one of them.

-one of those "bad" Williams fans that everyone keeps talking about

Well when one of my faves is playing,and her opponant is serving,and the first serve is a fault,I always hit the mute on the remote and 6/10 times the players serves a double fault it seemsed to work 10/10 when one of my faves was playing Anna Kournakova also too I wear my underwear inside out,well sometimes

with kim I don't have superstitions except that I never do anything when it's a close game (I mean like going to the toilet or something like that)

it's nothing compared with the steffi days though. I was so nuts

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

Well, when I am at university and Justine has to play, I must think of her at the moment she should be playing. If not, she loses or has a very tough match with a lot of errors.

And my boyfriend and I have a superstition. It's private. I have checked it and 90% of the times the superstition is true. He's not happy with the thing we do or better said don't do. He is quite "happy" when Justine doesn't play for a couple of weeks

I never play as my favorites on the computers games I have during a tournament. I truly believe this works as I played as Babsi the other night on NGT and won 3-6 6-3 6-3 and then she lost erm.. badly the next day.

I also practise serve when Anna is playing. Dont ask!

Last year at Wimbledon, when Lleyton was playing his SF and F, I listened so many times to 'eye of the tiger ' (from the Rocky movies), hell after Wimbledon I was sick and tired of that song.
