The trends were not that clear : there are all kinds of tastes actually.

Anyway, people who just spend time lurking the forum won't have a proper opinion as it's often the same ones who talk a lot (myself included) and give the impression that they are numerous and represent a lot of people , which is just wrong. Also the ones who spend a lot of time on this forum are often trolls and also often are full of themselves. You will have a bad opinion of every fanbase if you just read what these posters post. I've often read this wrong interpretation on this forum that the most talkative posters on MTF truly represent their fanbase, which is 100% (well 99%) wrong.

People in real life are very different, and you can already see that in other forums.

Fedfans usually don't like Nadal, that's the only very obvious trend, for various reasons of course there's the "losing" factor, but not only Fed and Nadal are opposite in many aspects. Usually Nadalfans think that Fedfans just hate Nadal because Fed loses to him, because that's the most acceptable opinion for them : it's hard for them to imagine that one can't like Nadal for other reasons.

Among Nadalfans, it's not visible on this forum but many ones like Fed or at least respect him at least from what I read on multiple forums. I was nicely surprised by that. I guess defeating him helped, the fact that Nadal praised Fed a lot also helped ... and of course that there are many reasons to respect Fed and it's visible in the whole tennis community . Also I was pleasantly surprised that many Nadalfans really are humble people, although on this forum you will not realize that at all

I have the impression that more Djokofans don't like Fed than Nadalfans dislike Fed, anyway I've often seen they had a strange and peculiar relationship to Fed, very much concerned about him even when Nadal clearly was Djokovic's main opponent. I think Tignor was on something when he spoke of a "Fedipal" complex about Djokovic, remember "the king is dead, long live the king" ?

About Djokofans disliking Fed, there also seems to be a specific "nationality" factor : I think the Serbian media played a lot on that competition with Fed, and also some liked to give a bad opinion about Fed for that reason.

Of course, disliking Fed, or, specifically on this forum, disliking visible Fedfans, has also been a reason to cheer for Djokovic or for Nadal for some, at different periods though. Also some who were disappointed by Fed when he declined also went on to cheer for Djokovic, as he's the one who's most "offensive/complete" out of the other top-4, or at least out of the top-3 because these ones were rather gloryhunters, and it was hard for them to cheer for the slamless Murray

Besides, specifically on this forum, an artificial "association of interests" has been made between Nadal and Djokofans, because of the high number of Fedfans. I've not seen it anywhere else.

Personally Fed is my favorite, and I'm allergic to Nadal, between Djokovic and Murray it depends, I prefer Djokovic's attitude and desire to create more, also his personality, but I admire Murray's talent, esp. since I saw him live. Also I prefer Fed-Murray's match-up than Fed-Djoko's, more interesting matches imo.
Great post Duong. I'm sorry 'bout the poll. I know some are not happy about the choices. I think I should add more choices, like those Rafans that like Fed, Nole fans to Fed etc

Cheated to beat Fed. I have no problem admitting the pig cheated to beat the GOAT.

Fedfans support/like Murray.

This might change if Murray starts beating Federer at the slams.

That's what I think also. Fedfans tend to support a player ( Big 4) who is less a threat to Roger and his records.

I'm a Federer fan.
Like Murray (but not too much).
Pretty much neutral about Nadal, but have enormous respect for him.
Hate Djokovic with all my heart and soul.

Sorry Djokonauts, I am a fan of Federer now. I've learned over the years to appreciate his contribution to the game. No one will ever surpass this man's influence.
Federer ~ The consummate professional. Never retired once in a match. Does not go over the time limit on every point.
Since becoming a Fed Fan I have had 0 moderations

I'm indifferent to the other members of the big 4. Don't like or dislike them.

Default Re: Which of each of the Big Four fans are more likely to support another Big 4.

Federer (the grandmaster, il duce, greatest of all time for me, flawless gamestyle, personality can be better sometimes)

Nadal (miss the guy, the competition is not the same without him even though he stood in the way for untouchable records for Roger / could have had 5 AO, 5 RG, 8 W and several more MS 1000)

Djokovic (even though he regularly beats Fed in slams these days, he has the most positive and attacking game plan and the biggest cojones from the remaining top 4)

Murray (a year ago, hell a month ago he would have been #3 but now he finally has won his Slam I believe he got what he deserved. He was the one that deserved a Slam the most from all active players who were slamless but I do believe he has the most boring personality/game)

I think both Rafa and Nole fans get along well on MTF in general. Even in 2011, the flame wars between the 2 fanbases weren't that bad.

The Noledal love in stemmed from RFK's 'Sparta' campaign/promotion of both. When the ultimate fact is Federer has more slams than 'Sparta' combined.

I think Federer fans like Djokovic (mainly because of the beatings to Nadal last year). It goes both ways too.

Murray and Nadal are more disliked generally by the the ones who aren't fans of any them.

Honestly, it just depends for me on the particular match. I'm a Fed fan, but when's it's a great match played well by both, the winner is the winner and i don't begrudge the player who beat him. He earned it. This being so emotionally attached that you can't respect a player who just earned it ( regardless of who you are a fan of) just get's out of hand. We see that in most sports, so it's not unique to tennis. The booze probably has a lot to do with it i'd suspect.
