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?
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.
