The hate for Maria has gotten ridiculous

Boy, this is completely ludicrous now. Before, there was contempt for Maria. Now it seems to have bloomed into full-blown hatred. It's completely ridiculous.

GET THE HELL OVER IT MARIA HATERS.

She's a great player. Whether you like it or not.

....

I agree that her father is WAAAAAY over-the-top.

I agree that she's been used as a marketing tool a lot. But it's not like it's her fault that mother nature decided to make her attractive.

I agree that IMG is exploiting her and making bad decisions.

BUT THAT'S NO REASON for this intense, seething hate that exists around her. This YEC title win has pushed the situation from annoying and stupid and downright disgusting. What has she as a person done to deserve it? All she does is go out there and try her best to win, LIKE ANY PLAYER. And yet for some reason she is easily the most hated player on this board.

...

What I'd like to do is do a comparison to Svetlana Kuznetsova. They have taken almost identical routes this year. They both started out the year ranked in the 30's. They both won some smaller tournaments, and a first Grand Slam. And yet the only way people get talking about Svetlana is when she makes an "uncalled for" comment about another player. Maria can't walk down the bloody street without there being an article about it and 10,000 people queuing up to say why she's stupid. I just don't get it.

What about Martina Hingis? She was a young prodigy. She was attractive. She was everything Maria is (and more) and yet she's one of the most loved players. So why is Maria so hated?

...

Maria is going to be around for at least another 10 years (as long as she stays healthy, touch wood). You people are going to have to put up with her for a long time so I suggest you get over your childish hatred for her. Myself, and other Maria fans are absolutely sick of it.

Oh boo hoo, cry me a river with this People have opinions. Learn how to take them. Learn how to read posts. Maybe then you'll catch a clue. Maria isn't so special that she should be a sacred cow not subject to criticism or her actions that to people's ire. Get over it.

Good post, except your wrong about Martina, she was one of the most hated players during her time at the top. She was more hated than Maria.

Really all the hate should be seen as a compliment. It means Maria's a success and keeps reminding the jealous cretins of how meaningless their lives are.

Exactly.

There's players that I like less than others, but it's nowhere near hate. And I don't go around berating them

No need to hate Maria, because she is really only a teenager. There is nothing wrong she has done to anyone. She deserves everything she has gotten so far and no one can take that away from her.

Justine's always got the fight in her


Serena's always got it. Never underestimate the heart of a Champion

Actually I doubt that. To take criticism of a favorite as badly as this thread starter is taking it shows he probably is living by way of Maria. So you did pinpoint the thread starter correctly.

I don't think the thread starter is taking criticism badly. I think he is just sick of the nonsense, as all impartial observers are.

But it's OK, I've been a Martina fan and a Jenn fan so I know not to take any shit from the haters
Serena and Venus fans will know the same.
Sharapova fans will learn to live with it too, by this time next year the hate will be like water off a ducks back.

And yes anyone who HATES a tennis player they don't even know has seriously problems in their life.

It would help if the thread starter realized what most of the criticism regarding Maria at least today is about. And there is a difference between flat out hating a player, any tennis player and criticising actions. Not knowing the difference and that there is one is sad in itself.

I really think this board has become overrun with immature people who are not really fans of tennis. Anyone who truly likes the game and it's players would not stoop to posting the kind of garbage they're throwing at Maria. This was a great match, immensely entertaining with fine play by both girls. I am so proud of Maria's maturity in winning this match but I have to keep reminding myself that just because this message board is clogged with hate doesn't make it any less of a win for her. And Serena played so well , too.

I think I'll head to bed - these rabid dog "fans" are sickening.
