View Full Version : Do you ever LIKE a player because you LIKE their fans on this board?

Or even on the old Sanex WTA board? Or like a player MORE because of their fans?

Monica Seles. I was always neutral with her, but I like her fans a lot. She's one of my faves now.

You are guys are too funny. Lol

As I mentioned in the other thread, it can work both ways, and their are certainly players I follow more and look out for their results, because I like the posters who support them...

I like the Williams sisters because of their loyal fan base, oh let me stop lying, :o I was already captivated way before I joined any fan base site :D

DITTO victory1!!:D

I got more sympathy for Venus more because of that interview that was posted here this week. :cool: (not that I disliked her before though)

Yes. Sandrine Testud has really cool fans! And that made me notice her more.

Feb 17th, 2002, 10:13 PM
Now, isn't this thread much more pleasant than that other mean thread? ;) :p :wavey:

This has happened to me fairly often. Eleni Daniilidou is one example of a player I like more now, thanks to her fans!! :hearts:

I became more of a fan towards the Asians and Russians because of the experts;) Danker and Eggy! They introduced me into liking them!

Feb 17th, 2002, 10:29 PM
Great post TeeRexx!:) ;)


Feb 17th, 2002, 10:45 PM
Thanks, Jovon.
Yes, Egg has made me painfully aware of all 400 of his Russian babes. ;) :p

Frankly, Fingon and the great VENUS matchups, made me admire Hingis. Although, ironically, he has dumped her for a new fave. :eek: :p

Yeah, this is really a much nicer thread than the other.

And its sad when a fan "deflects" if a player loses.

But personally, nicer fans don't make me like a player more. It just gives me a better opinion of that player's fans.
But it DOES make me feel more empathy for them. So that's almost on the way, right?

Fingon hasn't "defected" - he supports both Henin & Hingis. As I understand it, he's switched allegiance because Hingis stopped playing the kind of tennis that he liked to watch. Fair enough, surely?

Thanks, TeeRexx.

So...do you LIKE Jamie Foxx now that he's dating Serena? Lol

Feb 18th, 2002, 12:47 PM
No, I don't like Jamie Fox and NO he isn't dating SERENA. :p :rolleyes:

Feb 18th, 2002, 12:49 PM
Oh okay............................................Us her? ;)

Anyway, thanks for the cool "deflecting" thread; we need more of 'em up in here. :)

No, I like who I like, but if a poster I like has a fave I've not really followed before I'll take an interest in her - e.g. Eleni Daniilidou, when Iva's #1 Fan and Franziska cheered for her at the AO and provided random gossip/info about her. She's not one of my faves, though. Yet.

danker and TBE's enthusiasm for the Asian/Russian ladies is contagious, you find yourself cheering for them too. Which is no bad thing.

Feb 18th, 2002, 06:16 PM
No! I like the players for their game, not for their fans!

But JENN FANS are all cool!!!:) :) :) :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Feb 18th, 2002, 08:16 PM
Yeah Tee Rexx you are such a super fan that you persuaded me to like the williams.
Oh and I like Monica fans, so it makes me like Monica. lol

No! If I like a player, it's because I like them. It has nothing to do with their fans. This is too funny, you starting this thread!!!:D

Thanks for reminding me about Egg! He has absolutely got me interested in all sorts of players, and not just Russian! :cool:

Also, on the CNNSI board, the Mary Pierce fans were so very devoted to her, and so very, very nice, that I became a bigger Mary fan than I had been before. :hearts:

And Sharky has got me interested in Maria Sharapova, though with reservations! :)

Feb 18th, 2002, 09:50 PM
Sandrine Fans made me like Sandrine....although i already liked her..... they made me like her more.....so now i love to watch her play :)

Feb 18th, 2002, 11:16 PM
I like Seles and Davenport more because of their fans. And Hingis even more:hearts:

Feb 19th, 2002, 12:01 AM
I definitely appreciate Monica more because of her fans!!:kiss:

Feb 19th, 2002, 06:42 AM
Sorry, saki. I was j/k when I said "defects".

Feb 19th, 2002, 06:51 AM
Which, when looking back, I didn't say. *typo* :rolleyes:
