Personally I like LukᚠLacko for reasons I don't know, every time I see him play I can't help but root for him and stuff, I don't even know a lot about the guy as well :shrug:

Bolleli. I pull for him for reasons I don't know.

Lopez

I actually don't know why I like Djokovic, his antics leave much to be desired and he's grade A pusher sometimes. Still I root for him.

I guess being a fan stems from him stepping up in 2007, beating Fedal and challenging the duopoly. Still, his etiquette isn't exactly something that I tolerate in tennis.

Kavcic, Dolgopolov, Lacko. Maybe I just like their names, as I've never seen them play. :confused:

For some reason I like Gilles Simon, and even like his style of tennis, even though I usually much prefer players who are aggressive and aim to take control of points.

Vince Spadea?????!!! He seems to be pretty much a total idiot off the court, a choker on the court, but for some reason I always find myself pulling for him and I just can't put my finger on why????

I second that! I don't find anything appealing about his game, personality, or anything else, but for some reason I am always pulling for the old man, when he plays :D

Another player I can mantion is Rainer Schuettler.

I discover that I root for Tomas Berdych whoever he plays (well, surely not if he plays Nole :p), and not just recently. During Miami I was planning to root for Soderling but somehow I'm very glad that Tomas won. He has something that attracts me and I dunno what it is :shrug:

And of course...Nole. I can't clearly explain to myself why I like him. I'm always ready to criticize him...my feelings towards him is shown in my avatar :o

Ferrer. Not so much that I don't know why I like him as he's easy to like, but must be the only predominantly defensive player I ever cared about.

Maybe because he is Slovakian, like me :)

I don't know...there is a reason (gamestyle or mentality) for every player I like, so... :shrug:

I never knew why I liked Haas until he changed his nationality. He is no longer someone I support.

Leonardo Mayer- don't know why but I always root for the fellow. I thought he was flat out entertaining in a match that he lost against Gonzo but the pull since has been stronger than most players at his level who have had such matches.

Belluci as well- but I think that is residual love of Guga brushing off and wanting a Brazilian to do well.

David Marrero, usually I dont like spanish players or claycourters but Marrero has style.
I wouldput Montanes in the same category.
