Has looks ever come into the equation when you have decided to support a player?

Whether it's an ATP player or a WTA player, I am wondering if looks have ever come into deciding to support them?

Have you ever supported a player solely because you found them attractive? Or did you like their game as well and their looks were just a bonus for you?

Have you ever supported a player because you find their looks funny/unique?

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

Re: Has looks ever come into the equation when you have decided to support a player?

I have disliked players because I found them offensive to look at. I'm ashamed. There are a lot of players that I find very attractive but dislike regardless, so looks aren't enough to make me a fan of someone but they are enough to make me dislike them. All I ask is that you don't resemble a failed science experiment (here's lookin' at you Mahut and Errani)

So now you'd better stop and rebuild all your ruins...
For peace and trust can win the day despite of all your losing.

Certainly, I have cheered for certain WTA players in the past based on their appearance.

Re: Has looks ever come into the equation when you have decided to support a player?

Only in WTA, but I don't follow it regularly anyway. Favourites are Cirstea, Ivanovic and Lisicki

Fakervic played at 150% against Federer as usual.


Federer was the pioneer of first-strike all-court tennis. This is the real tennis and the beautiful game. Never forget the beauty of what was tennis. Nadull and Fakervic don't win tennis matches. They simply outlast their opponent with endless grinding and stamina. That is ugly. Beautiful tennis is gone now. Never forget the good days of real tennis.
