Which WTA player has the most annoying trait in Tennis?

Which WTA player has the most annoying trait in Tennis?

IMO, here's some of the most annoying traits:

1. Taking too long in between in points.
2. Constantly looking at their support box.
3. Questioning a lot of line calls.
4. Taking injury timeouts during crucial stages of the match to disrupt the opponent's momentum.
5. Always making excuses when they lose a match.

For me it's a tie between Pierce's neurotic service preparation and Sharapova's screaming.

For me, definitely Zvonereva's temper tantrums on-court.

Never seen this frist hand? I have twice and it's really disturbing and sickening. Not talking about just a few tears at choice times, this is complete baby temper tantrums including with screaming, yelling out at her coach in the stands gesturing, red puffy crybaby face, very unsportsmanlike.

Has Vera ever spoken about why she sometimes breaks down or lets things affect her on court?

Those are my two as well. Sharapova's mouth when she screams makes me cringe. It's a carbon copy of her father's scream too. Creepy.

1. Taking too long in between in points. - Nadia Petrova *too looooooonnnnnggggg*
2. Constantly looking at their support box. - Maria Sharapova
3. Questioning a lot of line calls. Alexandra Rodionova
4. Taking injury timeouts during crucial stages of the match to disrupt the oppenent's momentum. Nadia Petrova - 2005 2nd round australian open against Soph! She took a fake injury time-out to disturb Soph Ferguson when she leads 5-4 serving for a set. But Soph was just too good to take a set!
5. Always making excuses when they lose a match. - Venus Williams - including those Bulgarians that she got beaten!

Rest In Peace, Elena Baltacha

Schiavone's unnecessary grunting three seconds after she hits her stroke, it seems like she only does it to distract opponents... but I still like her

Martina Hingis has this annoying habit of winning four out of every five matches she plays. I HATE THAT!

While I find Sharapova annoying, Zvonereva is so pathetic! She has to be the worst player to coach...sometimes it makes me sick to watch this professional tennis player just whine and moan all the time...yelling at her coach from the court...wow...so yeh, if you can't tell...it's Zvonereva.

I'd like to imagine that in order to beat me a person would have to play almost perfect tennis. - Venus Williams

As opposed to Sesil Karatantcheva's anabolic behavior, of course.....
