Konta has the misfortune of being rather plain looking

I think it's a combo of not really British and woman's tennis being so **** that it's hard to be excited for any of them.

i think rusedski's popularity was borne of pure desperation

now that british tennis player andy murray is on the scene we're more picky

naw we back our lads to the hilt, often to a fault. ask boxing fans. note the 90 thousand that turn up to wembley for friendlies against san marino despite our footballers disappointing for 5 straight decades. our #1 olympic hero right now is a bloke born in somalia, and we have quite a few to choose from these days

loads of english supporters will root for whoever murray is playing

during the early days of andy murray's career he said in some interview that he's scottish and not british. Then there was some flag debate where he wanted a scottish flag and not the union jack following a tournament win

needless to say he's got a lot of people split between loving him and hating him in england

Re: 2017 Wimbledon: The Fortnight

Konta was a very late bloomer, she never had any kind of hype while coming up through the ranks.

Casual fans everywhere generally get excited about whoever the media tells them to get excited about. So it never happened with Konta.

Dustin Brown is like a very strange mixture of Gael Monfils and Nick Kyrgios

I'm Scottish and I have a hard time supporting Murray just because he's a bit of a knob. The Scottish flag debacle was the only thing that got me to like him for a bit. Only turned the match on today because Brown was playing and he plays fun tennis (though Murray did look good).

I don't get the rocks your colours thing. This isn't the world cup (or Davis cup). It's an individual sport. Who cares what the flag beside their name on TV says? If Konta was representing Australia but everything else was the same they don't support her? Sure in the Davis cup it makes sense but this seems like some sort of weird rabid blind nationalism to me. If they are a **** I don't care that they are Irish I won't be a fan, and if they are from Switzerland and look like a GOAT I'll support them like they are my own countryman.
