Re: Why do you support Roger?
I usually root for underdogs and that first time which I can not recall, Roger was the underdog. I remember commentators stating that he will be the next big thing. Tough he used to lose, I could see the potentials were there. In his ascension to world #1 , I remained his fan because I learnt more about his on/off court greatness towards friends, loved ones and other tennis players. I just cannot see any flaws, gamewise, personality and so on. Before him, I liked very much Pat Rafter who like Roger was corteous, humble and affable. So, I guess that what matters at the end for me is a player's personality, his condut on/off the court. How he relates to the world in general besides being a good player.
