Boy Ron- do you really just watch most players to see if they will play Rafa? Do you actually ever root for players as individuals outside of hoping that they will beat Rafa and you can add to your piggy roasting board?
There are many players I enjoy watching. But if it is a player in Rafa's section of the draw that I know can give him a hard time then yes I will be rooting for that player to come through. Besides, it just so happens that players who are able to consistently beat Rafa also have a game style I enjoy watching- James, Berdych, Gonzo etc.
I am struck by how player hatred, as opposed to player like is a directive on these boards at times. So if Tomas and Mikhail play- will you hope for a good match between the two as individuals or just watch for signs as who can beat Rafa more if he even makes it to the quarters?
I would first of all prefer the player I think will have a better chance to beat Rafa to make it through (i.e. Berdych) and if it happens to be a good match then it's a bonus.
Consider yourself lucky- this is one of the few times you will receive an honest response on MTF
