For those of us who actually follow the results of all 1400 + players with a tour ranking, 50 doesn't really seem like such a big number ;)

That said, there are certain players who I can definitely distinguish between being a big fan of, compared to ones who I like to see do well, but aren't necessarily among my biggest of favourites.

Well there’s nothing wrong with it as such, but it just seems kind of ridiculous that when your “favourite” loses, chances are they lost to another “favourite”.

Everyone on this site has 50 favourite players? Really? And you base this on their signatures? How about this? Find me one, just one, person who has 50+ favorites listed. I bet you can't.

Additionally I think for those that do have multiple names in their signatures you can usually tell who are their very favorites by the font size used.

Personally, I know there are alot of players I like but obviously some more than others. But whether someone is a fan of alot different players or likes only one player at the exclusion of all others or anything in between, I have to say I'm not bothered in the least. Infact I find it rather peculiar that it should trouble anyone at all. Not that there is anything exactly wrong with this troubling you. I just hope you don't lose too much sleep over it. :p

I'm a huge tennis fan, at every level of the game. A lot of the players in my sig are players I met, and enjoyed talking to them and watching them. I support them anytime they play, and I think they deserve to be seen by other posters just as much as other more *famous* players. They are the real heroes of the tour and often don't get enough credit.

What really gets on my nerves is someone who has 6 or more top 10 players in their favorites... i mean there's nothing wrong with liking the good tennis they produce. it's just so weird to me. i've always been a 1 player type. then there's a supporting cast that barely belongs in the same category.

I think you should be able to support as many players as you want.

There are about 20 players that I would consider my 'favs'...even though really I have 4 top favorites, but Martina is my Absolute!

But I completely respect those posters that only have 1 or 2. :wavey:

James
Apr 1st, 2007, 09:44 PM
Funny how this kind of criticism always comes from people who can't even name 50 WTA players. :p

Otherwise it's fine to have more faves, there will always be one or two that stand out. Should any of the others play each other, you always will have a feeling as to who you support more at that time.

DAVAJ MKirilenko

Sometimes I find it strange that many people here have many favs.
Not that I find it a bad thing of course.

I'm just fan of ONE player and that's already enough.
But am I the only one who has just 1 favorite player? Then I must be the weird one ;)

Exactly - most people will have some sort of order of their faves if they have more than a couple. I like lots of players, but when you follow tennis for around 15 years, you are generally sure to have seen lots of players, and find quite a few who you like to watch.

And if someone has been following these players who are now top 10 since they started on the tour? I have quite a few top 20 players in my sig, and I can tell you I have followed pretty much every one of the since they were just starting on the tour! (Patty, Kim, Amelie, etc)

Most people have a couple of favourites bbut others which they also like and follow (support was a good way someone put it). These days with injuries and players playing various schedules and losing a different times of tournaments it would not be as interesting for those who follow tennis as closely as most of us on the board do if we just liked one or two players!

Corswandt

Even after trying to clarify things with those two echelons of favourite players, I still have way too many names on my sig. And most of those are of players about which I don't do much more than follow their results - something I also do with several other players who nevertheless aren't on my signature because I feel it's already too crowded or because I have never actually seen them play.

And to add to the confusion I'm currently without a clear main favourite.

If anyone actually has 50 players in their signature (which I doubt they do), that's still only 1/24th of the tour- not including juniors or unranked players.

Anyway, it's not like you make a conscious decision to like a certain player, it just happens. If people want to express that like in their signatures, it's fine by me.

I don't mean to bump a thread but I've often wondered what Langers has, just not quite as TWAT-like as he's displayed. But yeah, it used to kind of bother/irritate me since I don't feel it's necessary to say "this is everyone I like" but I've often wanted to put in every player I like in my sig, so talk about hypocrisy. :lol: My sig would be so huge though if I did.

The seven players in my signature are nowhere near the amount of people I really like. Dementieva is my obvious #1 as anyone can tell who's read posts of mine, then Venus and Lindsay complete my :hearts: trifecta, and then Petrova and Hantuchova follow real quick after that. Then I usually switch between Mauresmo, Santangelo, Vaidisova, Zvonareva, Safina, blah blah blah.

But I'm also a big fan of men's tennis, in particular Pete Sampras (a personal god of mine) and Agassi.

Sometimes I've wondered if everyone I like a lot seems to be just the top names, and that's often the case (I consider people in the top 20/30 top players cuz out of 1000+ players top 20 is top), so that can be a bit embarrassing as I don't want to come off as a poseur, but as long as I have Elena I'm pretty much set to go.

I have all my eggs in one basket. :angel:

Chocolate eggs of course, with a bouquet of flowers, a kitten, and piece of pretty jewellery, in the basket. :)
