And to be fair, most of those who OPENLY like Andy voted for Andy. It's pretty much a pervasive trend here at MTF. That's why the polls mean absolutely diddly
It's interesting that you've come to that conclusion about this board. I only frequent this board and WTAWorld.com because the other boards I've seen don't appeal to me. But, I'm sure that I've seen a lot of pro Andy threads here and, surprisingly, on the WTAWorld general board during USO '03. Also, despite the ESPN/media hype, I would never have chosen Rudseski(sp) at Wimbledon, Henman at the USO, or Dent here to beat Andy. Greg and Tim were coming off of injuries and Tim beating Andy at a tune up is NOT Tim beating Andy at his home country major. Dent showed glimpses of new form at USO '03. I was hoping he would perform well. But, he's not 2004 Andy ready. It is possible that I miscontrued the number of fans with the frequency and intensity of their posts. For example, there is a "Is Andy Ready to Dominate?" thread on the AO forum that I thought would be an interesting discussion of the contrasting styles of the current elite players. Unfortunately, the thread didn't develop into that type of discussion and so I had nothing to contribute to or learn from the discussion.
