How does a player become your fave?

I thought it would be interesting to know how a player becomes your fave.

If it's a combination of reasons, vote for the predominant one and specify in a post.

For me it's game, personality, nationality, in that order.

Federer, Raonic, Tsonga, Monfils, DelPo ...

Easy. The trophies and chances of him winning stuff to make my life more important, crap players are not my thing.

Re: How does a player become your fave?

Game & personality. Nationality is completely irrelevant to me.

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"
