Why do all Ljubicic fans like Federer and all Roddick fans like Nadal?

I have noticed there are these kind of alliances between fans. I have never seen a Ljubicic fan who prefer Nadal against Federer, or a Roddick fan who prefers Federer against Nadal. Why is that?

I dont see any similarities between Federer and Ljubicic or Nadal and Roddick in their style of game or personality. So I wonder how these alliances started?

Because Ljubo fans HATE Nadal, and Federer fans HATE Nadal so they just combined their hate.

On the flip side, Nadal fans and Roddick fans cant stand Ljubo or Federer, and just combined their hate

Well, Ljubicic fans seem to hate Roddick, and since Federer is the ultimate Roddick "killer," I guess Ljubicic fans would like Federer. And maybe since Federer always beats up on Roddick, Roddick fans root for Nadal because it makes them feel better to see Nadal beat up on Federer.

That's my guess, at least.

I don't think that you can say ALL Ljubicic fans hate Nadal and ALL Roddick fans hate Federer. I like Ljubicic, but I also like Nadal.

Also Gasquet fans and Federer fans seems to have some kind of alliance. I have never seen a Federer fan who doesnt like gasquet.

because the Fedfans believe that Gasquet plays like Federer and isnt a "moonballer"

They also have some stupid notion that Gasquet can beat Nadal

Hmm.... you don't see any similarity between Federer and Ljubicic on the one hand, and Nadal and Roddick on the other, in personality. Eh?

I don't think personality is the only reason, however. From what I've seen there aren't that many Roddick fans who like Nadal, there are some cretins like Veronique who seem to like living vicariously through him so they can enjoy the feeling of supporting someone who beats Federer regularly.

Conversely, quite a few Ljubicic fans seem to like Federer for his ability to beat Roddick, but they also probably wish that he didn't make it to the finals against Ivan so often.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

That's basically what I was saying, only more concise. Still, there aren't really many Roddick fans who act like that, whereas there are plenty of Ljubicic fans around to gloat over a Federer defeat of Roddick.

That's certainly true for me.
