Fed, Nole, Nadal, Murray fanbase question

Ok I am new here.

Have to admit I am exhausted just to read all of the bickering between particular players fanbase and how one is pitched against another.

Is there anyone who actually go for Fed, Nadal, Nole and Murray and not exclusively one of them only?

Am I the only one who actually like all of these players (and a few other emerging ones like A Zverev)?

I do admit I like Federer the best but I would root for Nadal, Nole and Murray on any given day.

Re: fed, nole, nadall, murray fanbase question

When you are a real Federer fan you can't also like Nadal or Djokovic. That's not possible

Re: fed, nole, nadall, murray fanbase question

I mean .. after you appreciate Federer's incredible charisma , class , attacking and beautiful style

how can you cheer for Nada's classless butt pickin , novack's lack of charisma , and murray's murraism

not possible just like what FedererTheOne said .

Call 911, Federer just got out of jail

I like all players, but I root primarily for Fed.

Re: fed, nole, nadall, murray fanbase question

I'm a fan of both Andy and Roger and consider them my two favourite players, which is pretty obvious in my posts. In fact, plenty of Fedtards seem to either like Andy too, or are indifferent to him. Likewise for Muzzatards with Roger.

Any other combination of the fanbases is rare though. All four (with the aforementioned exception of Fed/Muzza) hate each other for various reasons.

Re: fed, nole, nadall, murray fanbase question

I'm a Federer fan. I like Djokovic and admire Nadal and Murray. I think the Djokovic and Nadal fanbase on here are broadly awful but in real life are usually fine.

Re: fed, nole, nadall, murray fanbase question

I've always been a big fan of the Federer-Nadal rivalry ever since that epic in Wimbledon 2008. I am die-hard Roger fan who also has immense respect for Rafa's achievements and ability, I always consider him the favourite in their matchups considering their H2H. With Djokovic once again I give him credit for what he has achieved and have put it into my signature, but I certainly don't support him. I have never been a huge fan of Murray I have to say, but he was impressive last year.

Other players I really like would be Nishikori, Raonic, Wawrinka and Del Potro.

I still want Federer to win every tournament he enters, though I would love it if Rafa could make it 10 RGs this year!

RAFAEL NADAL: 09, 05, 06, 07, 08, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 08, 10, 10, 13

NOVAK DJOKOVIC: 08, 11, 12, 13, 15, 16, 16, 11, 14, 15, 11, 15

Re: fed, nole, nadall, murray fanbase question

I actually have a group of players I usually root for but in certain ranking position, Federer would come first, then a couple of newcomers like Thiem and Kyrgios, Delpotro would be

in the ranking too, and then I would root for Djokovic if he played against Murray and specially Nadal. But I really would root for any player who´s playing against Nadal, I just

don´t like Nadals style really

Re: fed, nole, nadall, murray fanbase question

Fanbase warfare is a given here, its just the way it is. That being said, if you want to fit in with the majority you will be required to accept Jesus Fed as your lord and savior.

But yes, there are people here who like all of them more or less equally (though probably not many).

Re: fed, nole, nadall, murray fanbase question

I don't actually dislike any of the other big four, despite being a Federer fan. I respect what they bring to the sport. However, the Nadal and Djokovic fanbases on here seem to lack any respect for Federer or even previous greats like Sampras etc. They make it sweeter if Federer ever beats them.

Murray, I can take or leave, part of my reasoning though is down to the quagmire that is British politics (I won't bore you with all that, lets just say I think his knighthood is a joke, I don't blame Murray for it but a mockery of an honours system)!

Outside of the Big 4, I like Wawrinka, Del Potro and Gasquet mainly!

yikes...I have been living a delusional life, thinking I am a fedtard ... I will have to tell my better half that he is wrong... I am not really obsessed with Federer after all.

Thanks all, very interesting to see who you root for and why...

When Federer plays I root only for him.. if he is not around then it depends..

I think these four are great human beings with great tennis game.. different but unique... Nole took a while to like and Nadal was because he is such a nice bloke and is also a good friend of Federer.

Your time to shine @TheBigFourFTW

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

If I make a thread one e.g "Whom of Big4 you hate more?" with a poll will you remove it guys?
