Fan Loyalty; the loss of.

What would it take to turn you OFF your fav. player? What would they have to do or say - to lose your loyalty? Cheat and lying during a match maybe? Drug use?

Or can they do no wrong in your eyes?

Just curious.

Re: Fan Loyalty; the loss of.

Doping would be the first reason
I don't understand how players like Karatantcheva still have fans....

Poor fair-play could be another reason
I could't be a fan of Justine or Sharapova

Re: Fan Loyalty; the loss of.

@ frenchie^ We wouldn't want you to be, either.
Both of your comments are ridiculous. But I'm not going to get into it with someone who would never give an intelligent answer in return.

They'd have to do a lot, really. I'm pretty emotionally invested, and that will last me quite a few years I'm sure. I just don't see Maria doing anything "that" shocking that could possibly cause me to not support her anymore. Forgive and forget, anyway.

Re: Fan Loyalty; the loss of.

I'm sure all my favs are charged as hell (Serena!) so I really don't mind about doping.

Actually, if they lose in a constent basis against Mauresmo, I could barely handle it.
But as she's gonna be forced to retire anytime soon, Maria/Venus/Serena can feel relax, I'll love them to death

Re: Fan Loyalty; the loss of.

I used to support Justine Henin until Roland Garros 2003. Kim was my number 1 but I liked Justine too and I even hoped they both would overcome Venus and Serena at the top. I just couldn't stomach Justine's actions in that tournament amd seeing how Serena handled herself in the whole affair revealed a whole other side of her personality to me. I really like Serena and Venus now along with Kim and nothing Justine can do will make me a fan of hers ever again.

Re: Fan Loyalty; the loss of.

Doping for me would do it for anyone.

I was really irritated with Serena when she started trashing Sharapova publically, like when she told People Magazine that Sharapova was overrated. True perhaps but I think saying that in public is tacky and rude and does not become the champion Serena is. But after a couple of days, I figured Serena is the shit, so I let it slide. But one or two more nasty comments like that, and she's off my list. And truth be known, if they meet in the semifinals and Masha wins, I'll be laughing my ass off where otherwise I'd be pissed. But I'm still a fan. I just think speaking publically and negatively about an opponent is one of the worst things you can do.

Lena would pretty much have to murder my children for me to stop supporting her.

Actually, given that one of them is a teenager, she might have a legitimate excuse.

Re: Fan Loyalty; the loss of.

Doping. Or letting her father/anyone else in her camp accuse another player of doping and not publically stepping in to defend them.

Doping really a big deal. Accusing a player of doping is saying that they cheated rather than getting there through their own hard work. A player actually doping is cheating.

I think very young players like Sesil deserve a second chance, though. Not a third but definitely a second.

Karatancheva should have got a lifetime ban

she's still getting doped, just is using more sophisticated stuff

The main one for me would be doping.

Also blatant cheating.

Serena has been on the tour for round 10 years and never caught, she cant be accused of anything.
Instead we can easily say that karatancheva is a filthy cheater

That explains it all.

Don't get me wrong, as much as I love Maria/Venus/Serena, I'm sure they're getting doped. And when you look at Serena's body, you know 'roids are a la mode
But they're not the only ones. Look at Hénin, her arms are still growing at 25
