Have You Ever Rooted Against Your Favourite Player?

Have you?

I have once which was actually at Wimbledon last year where I supported Bogdanovic when he played Berdych as he really needed the win.

Well I supported Marat against Ernie last year in LA.. Does it count when they are both your favs? Impossible situation really.

Re: Have You Ever Rooted Against Your Favourite Player?

Yes, but that was quite a while ago. I don't remember when exactly it was, but David Ferrer had been complaining about feeling tired and achy, so I was actively supporting his opponent for once so he could go 'home' and rest. Not that he ever really does, active as he is.

Fan of:
David Ferrer , David Nalbandian, Nicolas Almagro, Feliciano Lopez, and Juan Monaco

Ivanisevic vs Rafter Wimby 2001
My 2 alltime favorite players against each other, Rafter being the slight favorite...but Goran really, really, really had to win that one!!

Paul Henri Mathieu & Lleyton Hewitt

I root against Robert Dee every time, as nothing would hurt his fame and publicity more than a signature win

Re: Have You Ever Rooted Against Your Favourite Player?

Yes, last year during Madrid SF at one point I wished Rafa just let it go.
If this could be count as rooting against my fav.

When I'm good, I'm very good...but when I'm bad, I'm better

I supported Anderson (for being a countryman) against Djokovic in that one match they played against each other.

Re: Have You Ever Rooted Against Your Favourite Player?

if you rooted against your favourite player, surely the other player would be your favourite.
