Red face Top 100 WTA Fan's Favorites AND Least Liked

Hey all

Although I am a member here, I mainly post on MTF. There, I started the threads "Top 100 Fan's Favorites" and "Top 100 Fan's Least Liked / Most Hated Players". They were very successfull and even had their own spin-off: "Top 100 Fan's Favorites of all times". Now, in my opinion, it is time to move these threads to WTAworld too. I think it might be handier to combine both threads in one thread. So, if you want to participate, please mention your ten (this is the maximum, a smaller number will do too) favourite WTA players AND your 10 least favourite or most hated WTA players. Please do mention carefully which category the lists belong to.

This, for you fans, is the time to be satanic towards some of those players on the Tour (and I know how a lot of you, me included , like to moan, shout and whine ).

If you want to participate in this vote, then please make sure that you obey these guidelines:

- Please only name active and female players. If a player is no longer active on the Tour, she will not be included in the list. A player that is not active due to, for instance, injuries, however, can of course be included. If it is doubtful whether a player is still active or not, you can mention his name.

- You can mention a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 10 names (the latter is highly appreciated by me, as it will make making up a top 100 easier).

- The points system works as follows: the player you dislike or hate most, or the player you like least, will be given 10 points. The number two on your list will receive nine points, and so on.

- If there are multiple well-known players on the Tour, please don't just mention the surname, but also the first name. On the ATP Tour, Martin can, for instance, mean Todd Martin, but also Alberto Martín. Solely naming a surname can cause serious confusion here

- Only mention one player per spot. If you cannot decide, just flip a coin

- Participating in this vote is possible in two ways:
--> 1. Submit your list to this thread. If you want to change something in your list, please submit a new post stating that your earlier vote has changed.
--> 2. Send me a private message with your list.

- If you want to, you can clarify why you voted for certain players. This is the ultimate time to vent your spleen!

OK That is it! Enjoy voting, everyone!


P.S.: This thread is also posted on Results will be posted on both sites.

Top Rated Favorites (in order):
Serena Williams (The Supreme Goddess of Power Tennis)
Venus Williams (Classiest Tennis Player EVER!)
Martina Navratilova (The Queen of All Tennis!)
Lindsay Davenport (The Nicest Player on Tour)
Monica Seles (GO LEFTY!)
Kim Clijsters (Another Great Player, who's nice as well)
Anna Kournikova (Come on, do I really have to say why?)
Jennifer Capriati (All American Girl, helped Venus in '01 and Serena in '02 make America become the supreme Grand Slam Champion, by the way, that US streak of Grand Slams, between three players is 11, from the '00 Wimbledon to '03 French)
Chanda Rubin (From Louisiana)
Maria Sharapova (So Much Enthusiasm, and her grunt ROX!)

Least Liked (in order)
Jelena Dokic (Awful, conteptuous person)
Elena Dementieva (Rude and jestful)
Anastasia Myskina (Pretty mean to other players)
Ai Sugiyama (Too Prideful)
Emilie Loit (Serena called her a Bitch, so she's automatically on my dislike list! Hahahahaha!)
Laura Granville (Rude to Lindsay)
Vera Zvonareva (Rude to Venus! BIG NO-NO!)
Patty Schyder (Rude to Serena BIGGER NO-NO!)
Meghann Shaughnessy (Rude to Venus! BIG NO-NO!)
Justine Henin-Hardenne (least of all the player that I dislike, only because of the hand incident, but I really do feel sorry for her becasue her mom died, and when she had match point at the US Open, she called her mom's name before she hit that amazing inside out crosscourt forehand! Great Shot, good player, I'm sure she's a nice person, but sometimes her tactics are a LITTLE UNDERHANDED)
