Fanbases other favourites and least favourites?

Who are the other favourites of every fanbase? And who are their least favourites?

Federer-Nadal is an obvious example of the latter, even if the ones who consider their less favourite of those as the 2nd best player in the world may not hate Rafa/Roger that much.

But Ferrer/DelPo fans seem to hate the other player, I wonder if some posters are the reason to this. And it seems to be so that it's almost Ferrertards who hate DelPo more than DelPo tards hate Ferru. And it seems to be very often that also Tsonga's and Berdych's fans don't like Ferrer and vice versa. I wonder if there are many posters here who like all players from the #5 to #8 bunch, I like them all, they're the ones who can threaten the Big Four most.

Stan Wawrinka
2014 Australian Open Champion | 2014 Monte Carlo Masters Champion | 2015 French Open Champion | 2016 US Open Champion

Re: Fanbases other favourites and least favourites?

Recently, Murray fans seem to dislike Del Potro.

But personally, i like pretty much all the players

Re: Fanbases other favourites and least favourites?

I like most players really. The vitriol on here is staggering at times, especially towards someone like Ferrer. I dread to think what people would be like with other sports, tennis is full of good guys in comparison.

A lot of the fans of the triumvirate DelPo/Tsonga/Berdych are very bitter because Ferrer always beats their guys. Oh, and apparently they also hate him because he's never beaten Federer..?

Personally though I admire Fed, Nadal and Djokovic the most.

Of course. Why would Delpo fans care about such an inferior player (in every way)?

I like all the 'real' 5-8 best players, I'm counting Soderling instead of Ferrer.

This. JPStards are the most clueless people on MTF, but how can you not be a JPStard? The man is a living legend.

Re: Fanbases other favourites and least favourites?

I don't even think Ferrer is hated in general by Del Potro fans, it just happens to be Lenders' favorite player.

I like them both.

Re: Fanbases other favourites and least favourites?

David Ferrertard... ?

Nadal "Sampras, Ivanisevic match. or one between those kind of players, is not enjoyable. It's not really tennis. it is a few swings of the racquet. For me in the past it was just serve. serve". arrogance.

clay excluded. successive win 0.  If grass and a hard are fast. Like Sampras era. Nadal is able to win only with clay. power of defense and muscles. boring ugly. All the surface is slow now.

fake time-out. cheat. gamesmanship. too noisy annoying always. excuse. boycotts threatened. always dissatisfaction cry complaints. dissatisfaction to schedule. selfish two-year ranking. bump to player. ugly protest. always exaggerated appeal of self condition. etc. overrated by fanatic arrogant blind fan

Please please don't generalize some crazy wars induced by very few people on GM to the whole fanbases

I read so often this generalization from a few crazy GM people to the whole fanbases, that's bullshit, and especially in the cases you mention. The whole Ferrer topic has become shit for around one year on MTF because of very few posters on GM who managed to get several others in their "fun trip" because some people like following the "trends". It's become impossible to speak seriously about all topics related to Ferrer.

If you want to really know on that topic, there have been several topics about that on GM in the past where people tried to find a proper answer.

The most important trends imo are Fedfans disliking Nadal (although many ones like him a lot as well, still a significant part doesn't, both because Nadal often defeated him in big matches, and because Nadal' style is the opposite to Fed's), and Djokofans disliking Fed (for several reasons, including nationalistic ones and "opportunity" ones : Djokovic came right on time for the ones who were disappointed by Fed).

useless old guy

Re: Fanbases other favourites and least favourites?

Federer fans seem to like Del Potro, Haas and Wawrinka but dislike Berdych.
I like Tomas though - he is one of my favorite players (not when he beats Roger of course )

Many people think that Tomas disrespects Roger - I don't agree with this.
Tomas feels just comfortable to play against him.

Murray fans seem to like fed, but not vis versa

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

well that is about our fan base

but Sapeod and Moozza no doubt like federer.

Me? I probably like Federer the most out of the big 3, not like that is saying much, Djokovic is a attention seeking clown and Nadull, well enough said about him already.

I think most Federer fans like Wawrinka but most Wawrinka fans don't like Federer
