which are you?

fanboy/girl -- loves one player no matter what. even if said player wins everything in sight, a la federer and sampras, he's your man.

a tennis fan in general -- has the highest regard for federer and sampras but get sick of them for the way they make, made everything a faits accomplis.

a tennis junkie -- breaths, eats, sleeps and lives tennis. can rattle off the 75th to the 100th ranked players off the top of one's head.

just curious. i'm a tennis fan in general. i tend to root for the smaller guy who has to fight and scrap for everything.

Re: which are you?

If I was single with no responsibilities, living alone, and only had myself to spend my money on, I would be an absolute tennis junkie, travelling to every tournament that I possibly could, glued to the t.v and latop, skipping meals or living off cold baked beans just so I could indulge my passion to the ultimate. But reality bites (not complaining as I wouldn't have it any other way) but a job, husband and kids means time, money, and electrical appliances have to be shared and juggled, otherwise I'd be the mother from hell. Having said that, there will be a few burnt and late dinners, no doubt over, the next fortnight
I have my favourite players to whom I am loyal regardless of their results but I'm a realist and can see their "feet of clay" whilst always being a supporter.

Re: which are you?

I guess you could put me under each option. I don't like any of the TOP players, but I am loyal to my man Hewitt. Having said that, I root for a number of lower ranked challenger players aswell. And, I know most players on the tour.

Fanboy with a lot of tennis knowledge. I still watch a lot of tennis but only get fired up for Nadal matches.

A tennis fan in general, usually supporting the underdogs.....
Fangirl of Rafa & Gasquet... I find Federer exceptionally boring.
