How many times often do you change your fave player?Like when you have a fave say Venus and she starts losing a lot then you change to Serena cuz she wins more.Or you like Martina then she wasnt winning and you say,O I need a new fave cuz the player I am cheering is losing to much,but no matter what and how often times my faves lose I wont desert them :) :cool:

Not counting momentary diversions, such as a brief Gaby Sabatini flirtation, and a traitorous Graf fling while Monica was out :eek:, I have only had 3 main favorites in the 16 years I have followed women's tennis: Navratilova, Seles, Henin-Hardenne. :hearts::hearts::hearts:

My anti-faves, however, change more often. I hate to recall how strongly I once rooted against Steffi, whom I later grew to love. :hearts:

I am a fan of the WS almost equally. I lean a little bit more towards Venus, but when Serena wasn't doing so well, I was rooting for her to win Grand Slams. Now that Serena has her "slam". I am rooting for Venus to win the French and Wimby. Basically whichever WS is not doing so well, I am rooting for them to win.

I don't change, I support my faves in good and in bad times :)

I admit that I didn't root as hard anymore for serena as I used too simply because I don't want her to win the real grand slam. I am bad I know :o (but people who know me, know the reason behind that so you can't say I am not faithfull;) )

I don't think I will change my favourite player (until she retires maybe :p , but then I guess she will still be it). I liked Kim from the very first time I saw her playing ( it is not that long ago, only two years, but before I wasn't even interested in tennis so).I was mad at her sometimes (that awful 2rd loss last year at Wimbledon or that loss against Serena at the AO). I vowed never to follow woman's tennis again after that loss, but hey it is stronger than myself :o .
I have a few favourites but my absolute favourite will never change I guess.

I have to admit that before I don't liked Venus that much, but now she is actually my second favourite :) , things can change.

I don't change my faves but my faves are on different tiers as far as the amount of time I spend obsessing over them.

For instance... Venus and Serena are at the top because I tape all their matches, buy their magazine covers, etc. etc. While I'm a fan of Clijsters, Bartoli, etc., I don't tape their matches, I don't buy their covers (well they're not that exposed over here but you know what I mean) but I root them on until they meet Venus and Serena. If they're playing a tournament without Vee and Ree, it's on! Does that make sense?

I've already set up the next crop of players I'll follow once my senior faves retire. Watching them mature has certainly paid off, especially seeing Ashley, Dinara, Alicia and Marion having some success the past couple of years. For now, my loyalty is with Venus and Serena. I am solidly behind them, no matter what. Sometimes I wish I was just a fan of Venus and Serena but they don't play enough... :p

LOL!! tiers...a good way to describe it

Tier I: you got Serena
Tier II: Elena B Alex Alicia and Venus
Tier III: Jennifer and all the Russians etc

i know that as soon as Serena and Venus retire.....its gonna be all Russians all the time for me...but im glad Harkleroad is keeping the American Influence of my "younger" girls...

(In fact I was a bit confused for a few years betwen Martina N. going and Kim coming along!)

Before I heard of Alicia, I loved Martina H. But then a few years ago I discovered Alicia and now she's always gonna be no.1 for me (til she retires in twenty+ years ;) )

How could you hate Dementieva? :confused: She is always so lovable! ;) Fortunately,you love her now.She's been my favourite at first sight. :worship:

:hearts: Alyona :hearts:
Alyona is my forever favourite.I am sure I will never change my favourite.Being a great fan,I don't think one should change his or her favourite player when that player is on a losing streak.Otherwise,he or she may change his or her favourite player every week.Yet,I believe there're such people.

Before Serena came onto the scene there were a lot of players i liked but i didnt have an absolute fave. Serena has been my absolute fave ever since, win or lose.

It's odd, I have different sorts of favourites - Venus and Justine are the only real Slam contenders I actively root for, so inevitably I find myself cheering for them the hardest at the end of a tournament. But I certainly don't :hearts: them as much as Nastya and Lina... as for switching faves, it was a gradual switch last year from Iva to Nastya. Mostly because if Iva doesn't care about her results, I don't see why I should :rolleyes: Still love her, though.
