This poll is just for 'curiosity purposes' only.
I picked the third option.

I love her even tho she stopped Serena's threepeat!

I hope she can beat Myskina tomorrow so that there can be a rematch!

I too love her. I have liked her ever since I saw her profile in ***************** where all the junior players list their fav players like Graf, Seles, Serena, Capriati, etc etc.
This was Maria's reply:

Favorite Tennis Player:
"Myself - because I believe in myself"

It was so in your face but funny at the same time. I knew then and there she was different.

Winners forget they're in a race, they just love to run. You try too hard.

I don't like her because she's an upstart.

Just curious...what is an upstart? She's been playing since she was 5.
Does that mean Seles and Hingis are also upstarts because they've won GS at 16/17. Was Sampras an upstart for being the youngest US open champ?
Im not trying to change your mind, just want to clarify the meaning of upstart.

Hey. An upstart is actually someone who comes from a poor or disadvantaged background and rises to a position of wealth, power or privilege, and in the process becomes mean, arrogant or presumptuous. So sort of like someone who's forgotten where they came from and act all snobby etc... I don't know if Maria is like that, but she gives off that vibe.

So it's just better if you are a millioner and you play tennis to earn even more money? The rich stay rich and the poor stay poor? Nice ideology.

I'd say that all Russian players are upstart then. Kournikova, Safins, everyone wasn't very rich.

And that even applies to, lets' say, 95% of the pro players of any sport.

i like her game, but the hype aint for me, sorry.

i just like the way she pumps herself up and plays some good shots. but she needs to develop a game plan, cuz one day those shots are gonna go off and she's gonna lose like she did ala FO. some variety would be great, but she's only 17, so that's all to come

Agree on every word!

I like her a lot. Before Wimby I didn't consider her overrated, but the hype now is just killing all the joy from her wins for me.
