are you a fairweather fan?

I hate to think that I am...but upon reflection maybe I am. I have been a fan of feli lopez since wimbledon but lately his wack results and tacky new hairdo have made me care (much) less. Same with Blake lately, too (though I like the bald look on him)

I also did a switch today on justine--I was severely anti-justine after the AO final, but I watched the Dubai final today and could not help but root for her. The girl's just got SO MUCH damn game.

( christophe rochus through to the finals at rotterdam!!! )

Team Rafa or Team Roger? Team Nole or Team Berdych? Declare Yourself Now!

Well I'm still a huge fan of Henman so I think I have answered your question there!

Re: are you a fairweather fan?

I'm still a James Blake fan, have been for years, even through his awful 2004/05 and his recovery (both tennis & personal)- it was really rewarding to see him win his latest two titles- fairweather fans suck booty!! .

Re: are you a fairweather fan?

No I like my faves whether they are winning or losing. I even supported Agassi when he sucked.

And back to subject, I never leave my fave players even if they suck so much that it might be unbearable. There must be personal reasons for me to stop liking a person, and so far only one faced it. I even didn't stop liking Coria when he's getting more and more ass each week.

ANYWAY - my FAVE players are mostly injured so I probably shouldn't be too hardcore on this topic to begin with.
I am tired (following a dumb WTA match cos Polish girl plays final and chokes) and I expressed in shorter form by calling Coria "ass" - he's not only losing his game and makes thousands of doublefaults. There is still magic in his game. But he is a wild weird animal in behaviour. Covers his face, runs away nearby the group of fans, people from team don't want to talk to him, except Martin Garcia a double player (at least in Sopot). he was also that clever that was changing practise session hours to be not caught. In fact , there were only about 30 fans including ballkids but he had to hide all the week to not to sign any single autograph, and really nobody wanted to force on him, his wildness was hilarious after a moment.

Re: are you a fairweather fan?

Mardy Fish is one of my favorite players, so I think that answers the question.

Mardy Fish for president.

Re: are you a fairweather fan?

And for me it's Andrei Pavel... other than Davis Cup and the AO 1st round he hasn't won a match this year. Definitely not a fairweather fan here
