I hereby put forth that Talent = being hated by a rabid fan base. So here are the talented players of this generation...
And thats about it. Lindsay? Never hated. Momo? Never hated. Kim? Please. People love her like a teddy bear. The rest of the nameless russians? Well people do hate Demented so I'll include her. Hmm, who else? The rest are forgettable.
Ellena D is extremely popular at this board. people always talk about her serve and give her a hard time about her lack of willingness to do anything about it, but for the most part ellena D could not even be placed on a list of hated players at this forum.
serena = most hated woman at these boards
maria = second most hated woman here
jennifer = yep, she's got a lot of haters here as well
justine = she got her share of hatred, and once she starts winning again she'll pick up in that department again
hingis and venus = both were very hated at one time, but i think people now feel sorry for both. i think they both have more fans here at this board now that there best days are clearly behind them
i wonder who's next to be added to the list of 'most hated'. here are some top contenders:
amelie mauresmo = if she gets that number one ranking again i expect more haters to become more vocal, but she will never have the level of hate the other big names have, maybe because she's not really a threat like the other big names.
alicial molik = i'm not sure if i believe she's next on the hate list. i don't think she'll ever truly be hated like the "queens of hate", but she was mentioned so i wanted to at least comment on her
