Anyone have special rituals for when watching favourites?

Personally, i have this really weird habit of turning of the volume when someone i'm supporting is losing. I have no idea why, its just something i've developed.

Anyone else do similar things?

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Murray - The Tactician

I pace and shout at the TV a lot, like I'm a coach he can hear, I tell him what he's doing wrong and what he should be doing.

Muzza and I have got the C'MONs virtually synched now. We both tend to let rip at exactly the same time

I love tennis because of...

Andre Agassi (always #1)---Novak Djokovic ---Rafa Nadal---
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga---Gilles Simon---Tomas Berdych---David Nalbandian---Nico Almagro

the exact same thing, listening the sounds of the crowd makes me nervous and anxious

(besides i hate the argentine commentators)

also playing Virtua tennis while the match is on (doing the 1-2 -Serve-Forehand-Combo- with Moya )

Well, I think that if I'm not at least watching the live score of Rafa's matches, if not watching the match itself... he will lose.

Re: Anyone have special rituals for when watching favourites?

When I watch Rafa play I am nervous and sometimes walk when I am alone and I drink a lot of water. Sometimes I jump off my chair when he wins an important point. Things like that

Re: Anyone have special rituals for when watching favourites?

Not really, I will usually scream at my tv and jump around like a 5 year old if Nadal or Federer lose but that's pretty much it.

Re: Anyone have special rituals for when watching favourites?

I play tennis in the same room while watching, too nervous to sit down most of the time so I keep hitting with the wall and sit down and watch in the important times or when any rally goes for a while, I also tend to scream "YES!" alot.

I've actually improved my strokes alot with this wall hitting habit
