When your fav player loses?

When ur fav player loses, how do u feel about the other player??

I hate their guts at first then he turns into one of my favporites!! Well not always but i tend to like them a month later. Eventhough blake beat nadal twice and nadalnever beat him, blake is one of my favorites. So i dont know y federer fans suddenly hate nadals guts. The dont understand that they never played on grass coz nadal never got there!! Ever noticed???This thread isnt about this anyway

Re: When your fav player loses?

When my faves lose I don't even think about the other player - my opinion does not change at all. I form my opinions about players based on what they themselves do, not whether they beat my fave (or lose to them, as the case may be).

Re: When your fav player loses?

I make a voodoo doll of that player. And the next time he plays, I poke needles inside the doll during the critical points.

Actually, I don't care much one way or the other. If I liked the opposing player before, I'll probably still like him, and if I disliked him before, I'll probably still dislike him, regardless of the fact that he beat one of my favorites. I can't start disliking a guy just because he's out there doing what he's supposed to be doing.

Re: When your fav player loses?

I don't hate their opponent when my favs lose. Obviously their oppponent wants to win too, and its up to my fav to win not for his opponent to lose.

Of course during the match, I call their opponent every name in the book, but that's besides the point.

For the most part, I like most of the players on the tour...just have to root against them when they are playing my favs.

I usually hire a hitman, and then rescind just in time to save their life.

Re: When your fav player loses?

I go on a banana-buying spree, of course, and send congratulatory fruit baskets to the winner.

In case it isn't obvious, I have been conditioned by Djokovic's hypnotic ball-bouncing in the following manner: whenever I see a post by J'torian, I feel an urge to make a banana joke. Meanwhile, I have received word that the other denizens of Federer's homeworld are going to come down in full force tomorrow and the enormous updraft from their descending space ships will cause a whirlwind that blows all the clay from the court, thus ensuring many sleepless nights for Rod Laver, who will consider rejoining the tour, BUT preventing Pierre Chatrier from turning into a mire of salty quicksand after Federer accepts the trophy from a grateful Vilas.

Sic dixit Sibylla.

Fan of: Federer Safin Haas Nadal Santoro Agassi Tursunov's blog

"I couldn't even tell you who the No. 1 ranked tennis player in the world is right now," Federer said. "It's probably me, still. It is, isn't it?" The Onion

It's like wiping you arse after taking a dump, a daily ritual.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

As long as they win by fairplay there's nothing to be upset over.

Re: When your fav player loses?

I don't really care about the other player unless I already hate them, in which case I get annoyed. But most of my favorites lose all the time, so one gets used to it.

Re: When your fav player loses?

It depends on the other player... but I don't hate someone only because he beats my favorite player.
But if I dislike the other player then I get really angry

Re: When your fav player loses?

It doesnt bother me too much. While they are playing my player Ill be rude towards them, but after its done its all 4gotten. It also depends on the opponent, and since I like most players on tour its mainly a non-issue.


Acasuso ~ Nadal ~ Gasquet ~ Clement ~ Nalbandian ~ Almagro ~Tursunov ~ Gaudio ~ Mathieu ~ Grosjean ~ Roddick

Ljubicic~ Robredo ~ Gonzalez ~ Massu ~ Ancic ~ Ferrer ~ Zabaleta ~ Monaco ~ Del Potro ~ Haas ~ Ferrero ~ Monfils ~ Verdasco ~ Moya ~ Tursunov ~ Chela ~ Serra ~ Lopez ~ Djokovic ~ Tipsarevic ~ Llodra
