Does Safina make a fool of herself?

She throws her racquet after EVERY SINGLE lost point.
Even when Schiavone or Schnyder made an amazing winner that couldn't be reached, she hits the ball up in the stands.
I personally find her annoying as hell.

Doesn't make her less annoying and has nothing to do with my point though.
So, what do you think?

Who are you referring to?

In the few matches I've seen of Dinara, I didn't even notice it. I don't think she does it every time. I quite liked her actually ...

Maybe she only did it in that match, but she certainly doesnt do it all the time. I've never got that impression from watching her.

She does it often, but I think she'll eventually grow out of it. And it's not like in Vera's case, it's been quite helpful for her against Patty and Francesca.

Women's on court demeanor is much more scrutinized than mens. Men can get away with racket throwing and cursing, while women who commit such actions are judged much more harshly.

Not really.
I don't like it when Marat slams 5 of those 200$ racquets per match either.
But I don't follow men's tennis very closely.

It's called disrespect towards her racquets and the people who can't afford them (and maybe not even food) and disrespect towards the crowd, because she attacks them with tennisballs.
And disrespect towards her opponent for not giving her credit for well-played shots.

Sure, she is very hotheaded on the court. She is always showing an emotion after every point. And as long as she is fair (what she actually is!) and she relates it to herself and doesnt affect her opponent or anyone else...
Well i like it It makes it exciting and interesting. But she should get it a lil bit more under controll.
And i think she needs it to get fired up. When she is, she is really smacking.

Ana Ivanovic, Tatiana Golovin, Kim Clijsters, Dinara Safina
