When did you become Nole`s fan?

... and when did you see him first time?

First time I heard of him when SCG team under 14 became European champion and Nole was the best player without lost match.

I read every article about him since the end of 2004. when he reached top300.

I saw him for the first (and only) time on DC match SCG - Belgium last year (and Nole lost both matches, I`m not lucky for him )

I saw him for the first time when he was on my TV playing Coria at last year's French Open and since I am not a big fan of Coria at all I thought, "WHO IS THAT THAT JUST TOOK A SET OFF OF CORIA!!!" and I started following him.

Then I saw him in person for the first time in Montreal last summer. He had already lost in the last round of qualifying but he was hanging around practicing. Then I saw him again practicing again in New York. This spring will be the first time I see him play a match

Re: When did you become Nole`s fan?

First time I've heard of him quite a long time ago, as there is a lot of good discussion at SteveG's forum and I like following young players' careers...
First time I've seen him... it was one challenger's livestream... can't exactly recall were it was but didn't pay too much attention, so I saw him at USO against Monfils and I didn't like this act on court - not only that I like Monfils a lot.

I became his hmm I don't like the word "fan" but I started to wish him well after "Proud Mary" thing. Slavic soul

I will burn
And you will die...

Re: When did you become Nole`s fan?

Luckily I was in Scotland when that happened and not at home watching the slaughtering happen

Although if I had been at home I would have discovered him sooner

Re: When did you become Nole`s fan?

I think I still haven't watched a Nole-match (live on courts I'm sure I haven't, but I think I haven't even watched him on tv). The Marat match was here from 9.30am, that's why I couldn't watch it... I only saw the result and thought something like: Poor Nole!

I became his fan because of the SCG, as I have a little closer look on the players with that country-code

Re: When did you become Nole`s fan?

the 1st time I've heard of him was when I checked the AO draw to see who Marat was playing "Novak who? Novak like in Jiri Novak? "
I think I became a fan when I met him in RG and then with this match against Coria.
I saw him again in Bercy.

It's impossible not to like him when you see him in person of if you go to one of the chats on his site He's just such a fun, sweet, wonderful guy!
