Just me perhaps, but I don't get the love for Nadal/Federer etc...

I'm happy for Murray to win because he's British and I've followed his career. But other than that I always root for the underdog. Don't get why the Wimbledon crowd are so keen on the same people winning every time....
If it weren't for patriotic interest I doubt I'd ever watch tennis at all. Football, golf, cricket, athletics yes, but certainly not tennis to watch foreign stars male or female in action. When our local heroes/heroines depart, thus my interest goes with them. :wink:

Yes, saw highlights. One hysterical idiot I suppose rather than widespread unpleasantness.

At least there aren't "get it over the net" shouts every shot. Something to be thankful for.

Oh, don't worry A.T. we're fast catching up with the Yanks at making being fans "fanatical". Won't be long before it happens.. Golf used to be very "gentlemanly" at one time and they soon changed all that. :wink:

British tennis crowds aren't unpleasant (in the way some foreign ones are) but they are deeply, deeply, deeply irritating!

The whole crowd is that "one woman at a football match who can't stop screaming if they ball goes within 30 yards of the goal at either end".

Which is strange as when I went to an NBA game years ago in the US the fans were about as fanatical as a sloth. Most didn't stay in their seats for more than 5 minutes until the last few minutes of the game. The rest of the time they were either getting food and drinks or trying to catch thing thrown into the crowd (I use crowd very loosely) to keep them entertained. It was absolutely awful apart from a handful of away fans.

Well, I was actually thinking more golf A.T.as per your first comments.. My son in L.A. is also a Cheese-Head ( Green Bay Packers fan) and they seem quite fanatical to extremes. :wink:

Just do the comedy accent then. You could even try the Millwall accent, but it might give Bruce a few nightmares :)
