The Chladkova Appeal

I wonder why Denisa Chladkova of Czech Republic has not much support from people on this board. I cannot think of anyone in the Top 100 who has such little support. She beat both Beltrame (maybe expected) and then the higher ranked Petra Mandula, and nobody mention it.

Well done Denisa

Good luck!

Good luck for Iceland Fed Cup team

We are still in shock over the loss of Justine, then patty, martinez, now vera and petra! Talk about going after the big guns!
Good work Denisa.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

It is puzzling, could be the haircut.

It's probably the hair.
And the relationship to her coach who could be her grandfather.

I like her, but she's the kind of player who seems to go steadily through the year(s) appearing on draw sheets without ever having a huge result. Usually beats the players she is ranked above and loses to those she is below. Occasionally she gets a nice draw and gets to the later stages of some biggish tournaments (e.g. Wimbledon QF 1997, taking out Davenport). So for most results watchers she's barely a blip on the radar. Also it seems like those who do bother to find out who she is are put off by her appearance.

Nevertheless she still has her fans!

Eurosport showed her coach once and the commentator said they are a couple. And her coach is VERY old.
Doesn't have to be true though.

Oh!

I thought you meant that there was a rumour that it might be her grandfather

Good luck!

Yeah, those who said that the reason could be the haircut are probably right. To be a real, hardcore Chladkova fan you need to get the same haircut like her and some people just don´t want to pay this high price.

I saw this too and when they said who he was I was like "WTF he could be her Grandfather." . Actually I used to think that she was a lesbian.

OMG....I AM a Chladkova fan.... i put a thread up about and got about 5 responses!

Its her fault.... she's quite pretty - but INSISTS On looking like a man.
She has a great hard hitting game... she's actually quite talented as well to be able to keep in the top 75 for so long!
I hope she gets some exposure soon.

It´s inappropriated to second those comments, but actually I think it´s true. Furthermore Czech...the people can´t pass the thought but connect her with the other "star" players of the big eastern country (no offend!) russia, at least I do that. Next match actually she plays against one of the glamour russians (Go Nastya!!)...so we´ll see...

I think she would actually be really pretty if she grew her hair

Good luck!

Congratulations Denisa

Yes, Denisa would be more attractive if she changed her hair style. I saw her playing Serena on TV 2 or 3 years ago. Her hair was short, but not nearly as short as it is now. She looked like a model rather than a military recruit.

Her hait aint that bad anymore, shes actually dyed it blonde and grown it a little bit (so its not a crew cut) and it looks really effeminate.

I just think there are other players who play better then her, and if people are to support the Czechs they tend to support Benesova, Bedanova, Strycova etc, cos they have better results etc.
