Big tournament coming up your fav. is in the same half as her toughest oponent

Would you hope the rival pulls out, or want to watch them clash and may the best player win?

I've seen so many threads dedicated to wishing a posters favorite player either gets a default, or a chance at victory against an injured foe. I'd much rather see two top players clash and have the better player on that day win.

"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. "

Clash! Well for me it is easy, because my fav doesn´t really have a tough opponent, sooo...

Besides I don´t think my fav is afraid of anybody, so why should I be?!

Always bet on black!

Clash because you see better matches and your fav gets the bonus points for beating the better players.
