He's not mindless, actually when he is on he is one of the smartest players out there, bashing the ball and trying to keep in control of the game, since he cant play defensiveley against the best players or volley.
If he wasnt a basher he would be as ranked as Weintraub

I don't need to, you yourself said you haven't watched him before. He now wins, and suddenly you watch. Nope no coorolation there at all

You clearly don't know what a bandwagon is, I guess you had some sort of negative connection with the word when you were young and can only subconsiously connect this word to negative things in life. No point in me wasting my valuable time arguing with this mug anymore

most of them probably will, this is because Klizan will not become top 5 in the world and gain fans like the top players do, some fans will remain when he starts losing though, me thinks you won't be one of them
What exactly gives you this idea, you don't know me well enough for this type of judgement, I've just said that I also like Bellucci, who has a similar game to Klizan, has Bellucci had a ton of success and is he a top 20/10 player, no, Melzer, my favorite player, is he a top player right now, no, so sorry, but from that you should be able to glean that I won't be dropping support for players anytime soon.

Heh, ok, right before you said that fans who have recently become Klizan fans won't be fans of his by the AO, contradicting much, also, yes being a bandwagon fan is a bad thing, it means you aren't really a fan of the player, but a fan of winning only.

Fans who jump on a bandwagon often do become long term fans of said player. You act like bandwagoning a player is a bad thing.

Fans who jump on a bandwagon often do become long term fans of said player. You act like bandwagoning a player is a bad thing. There are 2 levels of bandwagoning, bandwagoning which involves cheering for a player only when they are winning is bad, but when a player first starts getting good results he's bound to gain more fans. This is bandwagoning too, it's not bad bandwagoning though, often some of these fans stay fans through the good and the bad. This is good bandwagoning

Doesn't matter if the talk of the player is warrented by the player's game or not.

More fans = Bandwagon

More often then not the player then receeds and most people stop caring, leading to the typical idea of what bandwagoning is.

That will more than likely happen with Klizan too, only time will tell. All these "true fans" who love his game, will be asking Klizan who by the time the Australian Open gets here
Wrong, if that were true that would mean that every players fanbase is a bandwagon, which it's not obviously, a bandwagon fan is some one who supports a player only during a period of success, how many times.
