apart from football (Juve, Bayern, Man U -- order being not accidental), i do follow tennis... not as much as i used to, but still...
which reminds me, aussie open started today, yay! :D

I'm glad someone brought up tennis. I like Nadal and Roddick, but I don't follow women's so much, but I'd probably support Sharapova if she was playing. I guess in football: I don't 'support' anyone other than Bayern but I do have soft spots for Man United, Aston Villa and Barcelona. I like Chelsea only because of Mourinho (I think I'm the only pro-Mourinho person around. He's just so wacky). But I don't get upset if they lose like I would with Bayern.

Also like Athletics, mainly track, but swimming and jumping is fun to watch. In track, I was so SHOCKED when Gatlin was banned. I was against it, even if the drug allegations were true, but the Gatlin/Powell rivalry would've been so great. England have ok runners but I haven't a clue how we got the gold medal in 4x100m in Athens... I'm a Jeremy Wariner fan otherwise ^^ I hope someone else here likes track? otherwise I'm just babbling :P

mourinho's not happy at chelsea, so they say. personally, can't stand him.

i do believe men's tennis is so much better than women's. it's faster, more exciting, engaging and has more twists to it. i like safin, and hewitt, he's such a fighter and federer, but still miss ivanisevic, he was something else, love him. :D

I stopped watching Tennis when my dearest STEFFI retired ;). I don't think there is much quality these days anyway, barring Federer.

You´d get along with my mate who is a big Arsenal fan. Yeah IK like Arsenal for not having a team full of starts and relying more on younger players, when the likes of Chelsea are damaging football with all their money.

Well, I'm not a tennis fan but I love to play it. I don't care for golf but I adore Tiger Woods.

I would have to say, and I think I'm probably the only person on the board who follows it, is I like figure skating.

As for other football teams, I like Chelsea. I do like Barcelona (saw them play when I lived in Spain) but I'm getting tired of hearing about them. :lol:

Yep, but only when he almost beat Agassi. I miss Agassi now that he's retired.

considering the 'contemporary' players, i love watching federer play. he's way ahead of others.
