I usually don't regret cheering for anyone, it's just a sport, but Justine is at least in my Top 5 favorite players, I'm more of a Justine person than a Kim person, but I feel a little bad after I root for Justine against Kim and Justine wins, because Kim is a great player and seems sweet and nice, so I sort of feel bad later, like how could I not root for Kim.

I have regretted or felt a slight remorse cheering against a few players at times. Not because I even liked their opponent. A few times I couldn't cared less what the match was like as long a the players I wished to lose eventually lost.
But I can’t think I ever regretted cheering for my favourites.

That makes it even sweeter, it's refreshing to see evil winning over good once in a while. :devil:

Aww. I feel that way when Justine plays Amelie or Myskina. I really like both of them too and they're great players to watch, but somehow I still want Justine to win!

If I regretted cheering for my fav, then it would mean I don't like that player anymore, and since I still like all my favs, it would be a no!

Not Ever!!!

If you are a "true" fan of a certain player, then you should know pretty much everything about them... good points, bad points, strengths, weaknesses. etc.

When you "really know the "ins" and "outs" of your favorite player , and still continue to be a fan , there's " No way" you should ever regret cheering for them. :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Yes, when Elena D and Jen played each other in the USO SF. Both are my faves, but I had a sligh inclination towards Elena to win this match. Even though it was NY and Jen's playground, I wanted Elena to win a little more as I felt for her, it would be a career defining win.

Sorry Jen! :)

I regretted cheering for Monica at RG 1998 when she beat Martina. Martina would've had a MUCH better chance to win that final.

Also regret cheering for Martina in AO 2002 semifinal when she beat Monica. Monica would've had a MUCH better chance to win the final.

I think that's about it. ;)

No, but I've often wanted to make other people regret cheering for their favourite players. If I could have five minutes with the tossers that chant "Let's Go Andy, Let's Go..!"

Not once have I regretted cheering on Kim Clijsters as I admire her beautiful strokes.

I don't regret cheering for anyone. I did, however, make a fool of myself cheering for Serena prior to 2004 Wimbledon final. I told some of my friends, "Yeah, Maria's gonna get a Royal Spanking, she's gonna be Serena's bi***. At the end of the match, I had to hear, "yeah, who the bi*** now, big mouth?" I won't cheer so loudly next time. By the way, thanks a bunch, Serena, for losing me a ton of money on that match, too.

Tennis Queen Graf Tearfully Retires With
'Nothing Left to Accomplish'


EIDELBERG, Germany-- When the fun stopped, Steffi Graf did what so many superstars have done in recent months. She said goodbye.

After 22 Grand Slam singles titles, 107 tournament wins on the WTA Tour and a record 377 weeks as the No. 1 player in the world, Graf retired Friday from the sport she dominated for nearly two decades.

One of just five players -- male or female -- to sweep the Grand Slam in a single year, Graf said she had "nothing left to accomplish."
"I'm not having fun anymore," Graf, fighting back tears, said at a news conference near her hometown of Bruehl.

Her announcement, foreshadowed by statements that she would not return to play Wimbledon or the French Open anymore, was the most recent retirement this year by one of sports' dominant players. Graf followed the path taken by Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky, John Elway and Barry Sanders.

Graf, 30, had fought through numerous injuries in recent years and throughout her 17-year career, a tenure that also was plagued by off-court distractions.

It wasn't that she found it hard to keep up with today's generation of teen-age stars: Graf proved she still was a contender by beating Martina Hingis in this year's dramatic and emotional French Open final, and then reaching the final at Wimbledon.

"It was almost too easy to catch up to the top players again," Graf said. "I have nothing left to prove."

Graf said the decision to quit came two weeks ago as she was flying to a tournament in San Diego, where a thigh injury later caused her to pull out of her first-round match against Amy Frazier.

It turned out to be her last official appearance on tour.

"The weeks following Wimbledon weren't easy for me," Graf said. "I was pulled back and forth, but when I made my decision I didn't think about it one minute afterward."

She also said her decision had nothing to do with injuries.

"Right now, I'm perfectly fit," Graf said.

Graf turned pro in 1982 at the age of 13, and even as a teen-ager presented a stern and determined figure on the court -- a contrast to her modest, almost shy demeanor off the court.

She won her first tournament in April 1986, beating Chris Evert in Hilton Head, S.C. Graf beat Evert again 11 months later in Key Biscayne, Fla., becoming the youngest player to pass $1 million in earnings.

Graf won her first Grand Slam title in June 1987, beating Martina Navratilova at the French Open, and in August of that year gained the No. 1 world ranking for the first time.

She finished with more than $20 million in earnings, seven Wimbledon titles, six French Open titles, five U.S. Open titles and four Australian Open titles. In 1988, she won all four majors and the gold medal at the 1988 Seoul Olympics, giving her a "Golden Slam."

Her growing popularity was accompanied by personal setbacks, including her father spending 15 months in jail in 1997 and 1998 for tax evasion on her tennis winnings.

Graf's injuries -- more than 50 in all -- peaked in June 1997. She underwent knee surgery, and her career appeared to be over. Despite the 81/2-month layoff, Graf fought through several other injuries and reached the top again, culminating with her French Open title in May.

Although many thought Graf would wait until after this year's U.S. Open before retiring, her decision wasn't a complete surprise.

"I can kind of sympathize with what she's going through because when you're at the top, it is not easy to maintain it," Pete Sampras said. "She had an unbelievable career, did it with a lot of class.

"She went out and got the job done and made the racket do the talking. I have always looked up to her the way she approached the game."

Never. What's the point of cheering someone if there's a slightest risk that you might regret it?
No regrets here, no.
