Do any of you have superstitions when you watch your faves? Do you believe, even a little bit (be honest :) ), that what you do influences their performances?

Actually I have a horrible feeling that if I watch Anna she will not win. I have not watched a match on TV that she has won since the US open in 2000!!! But then again I saw her win loads of doubles matchs at US and Wimby so I guess that puts that little superstion to rest.

The other one I have is that I will not play on Smash COurt Tennis or any other compunter game with her in as I fear it will jinx her.

Strange huh!

hell yeah i have that sort of feeling. i've got so many. for example if i'm watching them on tv and the lights are off because no one was in there and my fav is winning then i'll sit in there with the lights off until they start to lose (if they start to lose). but that is pretty rare i don't do that sort of thing now. if a player is winning while i'm out of the room i won't go back and stay and watch them (if they start losing when i go back in).

basically if they are winning i try to keep everything the same.

I cannot watch an entire match with Serena. Take Oz for instance, when I was watching the clijsters match, I was sadden by her being down and I decided to take a shower and anticipated the venus - clijsters final. I came out of the bath and sure enough she won...I was amazed.

On the other hand I have to watch a venus match cos I felt she won't win.

I was witness to the capriati victories at RG and wimbly two years ago and felt that serena should have won those matches but of course I watched and there goes the beginning of my superstition.
