what were the devoted things you did as a fan?

i used to buy every nike aparrel that agassi wore since 1995. i now have a huge collection of different dri-FIT shirts and it's kinda cool looking back at each of them.

what about you?

Re: what were the devoted things you did as a fan?

uuuuummmmm, nothing. I suck

With each passing season, I discover new reason
SAMPRAS --> Rios --> KUERTEN --> Kafelnikov -->
Federer --> Hewitt --> RODDICK --> GONZALEZ -->
NALBANDIAN --> Benneteau --> Davydenko --> Mathieu -->
TURSUNOV --> Mantilla --> KIEFER --> NADAL -->
Karlovic --> Odesnik --> Stepanek --> Monfils -->
??

I'm not Spanish but I made paella the first week of RG and flan the second in honor of Rafa - I knew he was going to win it!

Re: what were the devoted things you did as a fan?

started a website.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Nothing too crazy. I have a million Pete Sampras scrapbooks with every pic of every size from mags, papers, the net, etc; countless mags and posters; dozens of tapes with his matches; and to top it all, I have his autograph!(from when he came to Lisbon for the Masters Final in 2000).

Re: what were the devoted things you did as a fan?

I moderate communities on LiveJournal... lol.

I don't do anything too crazy.

Although, I am going on a 9 hour road trip with 3 people I have never met in order to go to Montreal this summer to cheer for my boys

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer
