oh - why she's not as populer is a very good question.
popularity usually has alot to do with your start.
looks, grace, a fast big win and title. winning a slam has alot to do with popularity.
bieng the best in your country works. having a unique game sometimes works.
Likhovtseva is a great player - but she's a bit old school.
She's a complete athlete - not a stunner. she doesn't have a brutul shot, nor any other specialities, often known as "weapons". she's not conventionally pretty (though she's so cute IMO) nor is she good with the media (AKA giggle, smile, wave "you know") she didn't have a fantastic start to her career, and she wasn't a reguler at the second week in grand slams.
The media likes a good story.
it doesn't have to do with tennis, or even sports.
Dokic is still more populer than likhovtseva.
popularity is a very tricky part of our lives. no one knows how it works completly.
all i can say is that i really like her, i think she's so cute, and i hope she has a great 2006.
if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.
