Maria, out! Tatiana, next!
Will WTA soon build up TATIANA GOLOVIN as the new tennis darling. Someone who will actually be loved by the tennis crowd.
Well like everyone else, I agree that Maria's grunting and excessive fist pumps and classless celebrations are factors to why the crowd is not ready to embrace her. But then Anna was an arrogant bitch when she was beating players left and right but the crowd was still enthralled by her. I really can't put my finger on it but the most visible reason I can see is that she isn't that APPEALING at all.
And believe it or not, I feel bad for the girl because she's just young, one of the best players currently and actually very humble off-court. She tries to interact with the crowd through her court interviews by joking to the crowd but it seems the crowd are indifferent towards her. It's almost painful to watch these kinds of moments when Maria pretty much senses that she's not getting the love from the crowd.
It seems to me that if WTA wants to build up a tennis star that is going to be loved by the crowd, the best bet is TATIANA GOLOVIN.
