Make sure you don't get recruited, man.
Just watch for a while until you find one or more players who have a playing style (and personality) that you like. Then you can call them your favorite. Don't make a decision because of some clownish fanbase here on this forum.
I don't think I will. That was just a joke. I'm looking for young players on the rise to root for cause I don't want to come off as a bandwagoner.. although I'd still like the greats of the game but hard to call someone your fave when you missed most of their career.
When I used to watch sparingly, I'd root for the americans out of national pride but this was at the tail end of Agassi's career...with Blake and Roddick coming up. Now, it seems very barren so have to look elsewhere.
