Maria Sharapova 43%
Amelie Mauresmo 12% (my vote )
Serena Williams 14%

Well that figures. The world wants to see how the girl is going to cope with superstardom post Wimbledon - flash in the pan or the new queen of tennis - but obviously its going to take more than a few tournaments to establish that.

Interesting....that is what being blonde and having blue-eyes will do for you.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

That's exactly it.

Davenport behind Mauresmo? I guess the Californians are sick of seeing Lindsay win all of their tournaments since 1997.

A tad simplistic, don't you think?

Not at all, really. Why do you think the American public was so infatuated with Kournikova when she was playing? Was it her tennis or her blonde hair and body? The same goes for Sharapova.
