yap, Ausländer aus RusslandIt seems you are drunken. Otherwise I can't explain what you mean.
Zverev comes from a Russian tennis family. His father, Alexander Sr., is a former professional tennis player who competed for the Soviet Union. In 1991, he and his wife Irina, a former tennis player as well, moved to Hamburg, Germany, where Alexander Jr. was born and raised
ja, verstehe ich, aber das ist für mich "falsch", weil seinen Eltern Russen sind und er ist auch, er ist nur in Deutschland geboren.Irgendeinen Wikipedia-Eintrag rausgesucht ohne Hintergrundwissen. Er fühlt sich und ist auch zu 100% Deutscher.
And why should you support players only from your country?I follow him since he was 14.
Why should I support players from other countries?
I think that for a lot of people (including myself) patriotism in sport was a way in to supporting tennis.Can you prove that?
So for you it's enough to be a fan of a certain player, Zverev for example, only because he is German?Can you prove that?
That's your point and that's ok. But everybody should decide themselves who they support and why.So for you it's enough to be a fan of a certain player, Zverev for example, only because he is German?
And what if a player has the dullest game or he is one of the biggest scumbags on tour? Should I still support him?
My point is that you should like player's game style, personality. And what country he plays for is secondary for me. Of course it's nice if he is my countryman, but if he isn't, it will not make support him less.
+1that's your point and that's ok. But everybody should decide themselves who they support and why.
I see it like b.kelly123. I support all my countrymen. But i support zverev because he is german and because i like his gamesyle and personality. Among the germans i would say i have maybe favourite germans. Like becker when was very young, then haas and now zverev, molleker and altmaier.
I do like also other players like djokovic. I like his personality. I like federers gamestyle. But it's not the same attachmant like b.kelly already said. When i'm supporting germans it feels like supporting a team. The german team. Mostly nobody else supports them except germans. I cheer for them like i cheer for my favourite football club.
Ok, it's off topic now. Sorry.
16 seeds, 4 in each sectionHopefully Sportv to stream the draw ceremony live, but I doubt it. They announced 16 channels for the Olympics (Sportv 10 only for tennis) plus 40 other streamings on internet.
One question: is this a tournament with 8, 16 or 32 seeds?
Regarding the discussion about nationality -- I don't care, I prefer the ones with the playing style I like most too, but I can understand people supporting mainly players from their countries. On DC and OG I support brazilians, doesn't matter if they're playing my favorites, I'll support the brazilian ones.
