I was just wondering (and partially spurred from the "most annoying fanbase" thread), because I don't identify with any of the player fanbases...I have favorites players, just like everyone though. I guess I'm kind of a tennis loner.

Identify most with: Maria Sharapova and Justine HH fanbases :hearts:

Identify least with: Williams sisters fanbase (I actually like them but just not most of their fanbase. But there are like a handful of Williams fans I love. They know who they are.) :)

I wish I did, I mean there isn't enough Nastya fans to classify a form of a "fan base" on here. Wish we could be sneaky and gang up on people like the Davenport, Sharapova, Williams and JHH fans do.

It's just me basically... I'm the fan base.

Sharapova and Henin-Hardenne :)

But there are lots of awsome posters in other fanbases too. :hug: I don't identify with their fanbase, but they are cool posters. :D

I don't particularly identify with any fanbase, although there are many players I admire, but I have to say I do not admire the vast majority of the fan bases.
I post in ones where I am made to feel welcome and there is a sense of maturity, which isn't many. :tape:
Some of the fan bases seem to centre around a certain perception of the player and are not willing to have a broader view expressed about the player. :rolleyes:
There is quite a bit of "be-one-of-the-gang-or-go-away" behaviour in the fan bases. I'm all for playfulness but not if it is mud-slinging or offensive. :( So you're not the only one Pheobo ;)

however, i do have hate any players...maybe sometimes i dislike maria's habits, however i still consider her a great player ;)

Any player would be seriously embarrassed and even shocked by the behaviour of their own fanbase. :(

Well, usual Dokic tard seems to be also AnnaK, Kirilenko, <insert any pretty blonde> fan. It's little scary to be in that kind of company. It sometimes feels it's almost nothing to do with tennis. Hm...
..or maybe I'm little bit harsh...

Kudos to Nadl for being a genuine WMO member, you deserve a medal of honor.

On the other hand, SpankMe is on the verge of dismissal.... you Momo-traitor, Spank!! :fiery: :mad: ;)

Jokes aside, I identify more or less with the Mauresmo fanbase, although there are some member I get along with better than others. But I guess that's what happens in all fanbases :shrug:

I think I'm part of the Hantuchova, Wozniacki, Vaidisova, and the Pavlyuchenkova fanbase.

My other faves really don't have enough fans to be a fanbase.

And I don't count myself as a part of the Nastya fanbase, despite her being my 4th favorite, because I don't post there really much at all. :p

Don't generalize Spank... I do see a great difference among different player's fanbases.

i identify most with the Venus and Serena fanbases. and though i like the sisters, my biggest fave is Justine, so it's almost shocking i haven't be put on the chopping block.

I'm a proud card carrying Williams sister fan. I find their fanbase intelligent, creative, witty, funny and strongly opinionated.:worship: :hearts:

I Identify with the Tzveti Pironkova fans and the Bulgarian forum, I do post in there but to be quite honest I am quite a tennis loner I get a long with all the fans and can identify with a lot of them but I still see myself as a loner.
I love Martina Hingis, Justine, Elena D, Jelena Dokic, Lindsay and Mary and I follow and have followed their careers for so long, I follow all their matches but I never post in their forums and that doesn't mean that they are not my faves, in the end of the day I follow or try to follow all their matches whether on tv or by scoreboard but I never really post in their forums.
Than again I don't really post in here all that much.

I don't know, sometimes I do, it kinda feels that Sveta doesn't have a fan base the same way other players do, I mean she has fans, but her forum isn't very active I get on with most of Sveta's fans though. Sometimes I identify with the Momosapiens, and sometimes not.

I am suprised by SpankMe's negative outlook on fanbases I thought she'd be waving the Momosapien flag... :shrug:

True Serena fans (Craig, StarDuvallGrant, Diesel, mrserenawilliams, Sir Stefwhit, SJW, Amira, et al) are NOT fanatical in the least. Williams fans are different, they tend to be more fanatical and aggressive. So your characterization is false and misleading.

And if you consider yourself a true Serena fan, more power to you. :lol::tape:

I always felt the other fan bases were a bit too much in their own cliques in the past but with retrospect I suspect it was more my not being friendly enough than them being exclusive.

No way! Most fans, even those of my favourite player - are stupid. I identify with several fans individually, though. :)
