A True Tennis Fan
Even if Nadal loses Wimbledon, I will still watch tennis. Even if, Djokovic doesn't play great I will still watch tennis. Even if Federer, Roddick or Murray win French Open, I will still watch tennis. Stunned ao to WHY? I will watch the game because I love the game and don't watch it for the players. Even if all my teenage life I have supported Rafael Nadal I will still watch the French Open, just to see who wins and how everyone is playing. 5 reason's why I consider myself a true TENNIS FAN:-
I) I do no give justifications or petty excuses as a supporter of a player for her?his loss. The reason is simple s?he didnt play well, so didnt win. Not because they were ill or ANOTHER PLAYER PHOBIA!!!!
II) I watch the game for it's rallies and not for the ACE'S!! The rallies, the running, the slam shots and the agression makes tge game click for me.
III) The player I support does not cry when he loses in the grand slam which is considered his and his alone.
IV) I do not switch off the television when my favourite player is losing.
V) I graciously and calmly accept the defeat of my favourite player.
Yes, there were promises I made to myself after Nadal los. These promises were:-
If Federer wins:- I will not watch any grand slam.
If Murray wins:- I will not watch tennis at all. Be it Grand Slam or ATP masters. \
If Roddick wins:- The word "tennis" doesn't exist in my life.
If Soderling wins:- I will continue to watch tennis the way I do. Oh! Come on Nadal fans accept it he was good, real good. For some reason Nadal was not better.
I would as a tennis watcher love to see Robin Soderling come up but a a Nadal fan would not like him to come up. Two contradictory thoughts together in a mind can be very disstressing!!!! I will forever love tennis. And it will be a Novak v/s Rafael final in Wimbledon. You just wait and watch!!
