Re: Favourite players beside Roger and how you feel when they meet each other

I also like Rafa. Lately when they meet each other I feel ill

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Sorry for you - I respect your ideas, but I don't like minimally Rafa as he playes. I even don't like too much the person. For me that was a grat match

Instead today I'm not happy about what Llodra did in the 1st round - telling not good words to asitic fans Too sad for this words.

Yep, still haven't recovered. It was so delicious it left me unable to appreciate normal food for months afterwards

Re: Favourite players beside Roger and how you feel when they meet each other

I have several favourite players beside Roger atm, highest of which are Youzhny and Wawrinka, but none close to his level. When he meets any on them I root for Roger pretty much regardless of circumstances, and still feel nervous on his behalf, as demonstrated in Halle 2013 when I really wanted him to win against Youzhny despite Youzhny also needing a tournament win (which I'm happy he got a bit later ). I wasn't too sorry to see him lose to Haas in Halle 2012, though, as Roger was in a very good place then and Haas needed it more at that stage.

Last time I had a more "evenly matched" favourite was in Safin. For their AO meetings in 2004 and 2005 I was quite relaxed, I didn't mind very much who won and was just enjoying the match. It's really been a while since I had that feeling in a close match involving Roger

Well, I also like Wawrinka, Haas and Djokovic but when they play against Roger I cheer for Roger.

I have a similar problem, supporting more than one football team. Trouble is, with tennis players you can't have a score draw

Re: Favourite players beside Roger and how you feel when they meet each other

I always cheer for my other favorites during the tournament but the moment they are on the same court as Roger it's only Roger time

Fortunately we got this match-up meanwhile twice and I was lucky enough to attend both of these matches

Even though I really like Grigor there was no question who I was rooting for
