Only psycho stans do that... and I'd be worried if that were to ever happen.

Agree ..


I mean that kind of mentality is what helped Henin to win that Semi-final against Serena in 2003 ... DISGUSTING .

Re: Improbable Situation: Would You Do It?

Why would you cheat for a person you dont even know. All you will receive is momentary pleasure from your fave's win, but if thats all you want then you might as well go get pounded in the toilets of that tournament.

Despite what certain fanbase will have you believe, it will be the player getting all the money and fame, not the fan.

Re: Improbable Situation: Would You Do It?

I'd want my favourite to win based on merit :P

This brings back my memory of when I was in Sydney watching Petra. I really wanted a Petra vs Caro so I could shout in the stands, show her who the real no.1 is Petra !!!!! haha obviously this never happened

If your fave isn't good enough to do it on her own, she doesn't deserve it. Easy.

Re: Improbable Situation: Would You Do It?

I was going to say yes, duh. Then I realised, why bother? It's MP. It's the WTA. The opponent has a 60% chance of choking and hitting an "obvious" winner out, or doing something equally incomprehensible like this 6-5 point:



Replaying the point actually yields a negative expectation for my favourite.
