Why is there a lack of respect for other players in the WTA? Quite contrary to ATP.

Why is there a lack of respect for other players in the WTA? Quite contrary to ATP where most players respect each other.

Obviously there are aberrations and its not like ATP is a model of sportsmanship and good behaviour. Example.. (Coria's feud with Roddick)

But as a whole……ATP tennis players get along much better than WTA players.
Safin, Federer, Roddick, Ferero, Nadal are all fine.

Whereas, Sharapova, Serena, (Now Hingis), Venus, Myskina, Justine do not show the camaraderie or even respect for each other.

Big egos, cattiness and what not.

Throw in a line or two
So I can sense what your minds are upto,
On this particular topic.

I'm not young enough to know everything.

I think Hingis, Capriati, Venus, Serena, Davenport all respect each other alot. They owned an "era" and despite having war of words, they usually still regard each other as the best players.

Men compete with men for women, Women compete with women for attention. Men are a lot less complicated, all they basically need are *edit* food, fucking, video games, and or sports? Does that about cover it?

Last time I checked, it was on the ATP Tour that players tried to get another player (Daniel Köllerer) banned from the circuit; not on the WTA Tour.

CHARDY | CHIUDINELLI | CIPOLLA


Bemelmans|Camerin|Cornet|Crivoi|Cuevas|Dentoni|Dod ig|Garbin|Granollers
Hlavackova|Ilhan|Kohli|Kuznetsov|Lammer|Mannarino| Menendez|Phau|Polansky

um...the men don't get along.

ivan is the 'bitch' of the ATP, coria and lleyton fight, marat said he didn't get the hype around nadal (i think he was implying that he's not that great yet, which is true, but it's worse than what serena would say...), blake and lleyton don't get along...

i could go on.

ROCK ON:
elena dementieva, serena williams, caroline wozniacki, ana ivanovic
david nalbandian, rafael nadal, andy murray, gael monfils, jo-wilfried tsonga

Most people say that the WTA is worse because women are cattyer,but that`s not true,the men also fight a lot.Let`s face it both the ATP and the WTA could be called BITCHES`R`US.

All should be done in the company of a beautiful, intelligent and charming girlie. Sex can follow the food and drink. Some sleep is then necessary. Repeat this indefinitely.
