Knowledge of the game in general, whether it's the past, present, potential future, main tournaments, or challenger levels. Have I left anything out? :rolleyes:

Fans who "don't" get irrational and over-react when their favs get even mildly negative comments.

One who can see both sides of an argument. Posters who can hold a conversation and disagree without namecalling. Posters who don't let personal biases blind them to the facts. Overall a poster who respects another posters, and treats others the way they would like to be treated.

Fans who respect the result of the match, if their fav lost, because the opponent was good they must not be mad.
And fans who always cheer for their favs, not change fav because of bad results.
And an other thing of tennis fans must be that they watch everybody, not that they only watch their fav. (they are fan of a person not of the game)

Fans who don't "pretend" to like a player just to get positive reputation points. I feel there are many posters around who hide their genuine feeling for players just because they want more rep. pts.

I'd rather face a genuine "hater" than a masked one.

I have lot of respect for those fans who are able, even when their favourite lose, to recognise that his/her opponent was better that day, who can look in awe at a great point even if their beloved player was outplayed... I think the important thing about being a tennis fan is that, even before supporting a certain player, you have to be a fan of the game and still get good vibes after a long hard-fought rally...

I joined the board for all the reasons posted above. I'm thankful there are any tennis fans of any description at all in the world. I thought I was alone until I saw this messageboard.

I can understand what some posters mean about the fans who get irrational when their faves get criticised, but I think that shows passion too. You've got to love the players to love the game, otherwise where did the initial attraction to tennis come from?

It certainly wasn't just from glimpsing a fluffy, yellow ball, but the skill that went along with striking it. Who struck the ball? The player! But yeah, the single-minded fanatic can be an annoying person, especially when they act like rabid dogs in reply to the criticism or the match losses of a player.
