Not really sure if this has been posted, but I was just e-mailing JustineFan, and I realized, that sometimes posters can make you like players more than you thought you did/ever would (Justine for example).

Although sometimes it, can be for worse too..

Has it happened to anyone else?


Also MightyMashaFan pushed me over the edge for Masha too

:hug:

*JustineFan, Justine's still got a long ways to go until she earns a spot in the siggy though :hug: :lol:

No. I find disliking players because of fans and not the actual players stupid and the same with liking them. The players have enough merit to be judged on their own.

I feel like I have gotten to know Amelie better on this board which has caused me to grow to like her.

Can't say that someone else "made me like her more" as it were.

Cant stand Patty naturally, but JR makes me dislike her even more.

Nate (Athenaeum) got me really into Karolina Sprem before I even saw her play.

Works both ways. In the late 90s, I loved Monica, but the Graf-Seles debates at the CBS/CNNSI boards sometimes forced me to root against Mon. :o
OTOH I didnt like Hingis, but some of my best friends were Hingis fans, so I kinda deveoped a soft spot for her.

No.

As I can separate a player from
one of their dimwitted fans. :angel:

Nope - i form my own opinion on a player regardless of who does/doesn't support them.

I probably know Elena Bovinas life story in more intimate detail than I might otherwise have done, but I'm not sure I like her more. Although I did stay up all night to watch her first match in Moscow. :unsure:

Yes, many times -- but only posters on other message boards. No one on wtaworld has influenced my views on players since 2001-2002, when Eggy got me cheering for just about every Russian under the sun. :kiss:

Well I must admit that since speaking to you, I am warming towards Serena ... don't get too excited, it's only about 20 degrees :lol:

Sorry I haven't PM'd you yet, but I had to go out after watching Nicole lose :rolleyes: and I've just got back, so will PM you tomorrow if that's OK. :)

Since I came in here, it's been nothing else but this.

Spend a few weeks interacting regularly with the fanbase of any player and you'll end up hating her forever.

Do you know that poster from new Zeland who makes no sense in everything he says???? PAV The more nonsenses he says about Amelie the more I like her!!!!!!!!!!!!

Perhaps he's the biggest fan of Amelie and it's a different way to say he loves her!!!!;) :confused:

So true. :lol: Still it has to be said, some players have more irrational fanbases than the others.
It's a good thing I like Sharapova in the first place, otherwise... :tape:

Fans don't make me like a player. There's some players I like and some I'm not so fond of and that's all there is to it.

But I will admit that when fans of other players start to slag off everyone else and how their player is going to win everything and slagging off their next opponent - I start wanting their player to lose. And I'm like Woo Hoo when that happens. Serves them right.

But just because I wanted that player to lose then doesn't mean I hate that player.

not really - but some discussion with certain posters enlights you about certain careers and players, gameplay and recent form.
happened to me recently with mara santangelo - i remembered her a much lesser player - but after some arguements in her favour it really did seem i overlooked her too quickly.
at lower levels - it gives you the basic knowledge of thier existents and from there, as i stated above - you learn the player more.
