Which player has the biggest gap in popularity between this board and casual fans?

I noticed Karoline Sprem is quite popular on the board yet she's not that famous amongst the casual fans, at least yet.

as much as i it pains me to say this,
in my country, Justine, Kim and Amelie, even Lindsay were virtually unknown to casual tennis fans.

In fact, when you mention womens tennis here, only Venus, Serena & now Masha comes to mind!

so i guess, most of them actually!

of course there is Anna K. and Martina H.

especially Anna Kournikova, she is very famous here in fact she reigned as the sexiest woman in our FHM top 100 sexiest a couple of years ago. but thats because of her body and looks, not of tennis. and besides she is semi retired.

Kirilenko would be right up there.

As would Vaidisova I reckon

Why is it that the world never remembered the name of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern-

Biggest gap the other way (so more popular with casual fans and less so on the board) - definitely Sharapova and Capriati.

No one still knows who Anastasia Myskina is around the casual fans... No need to talk about anybody else.
