Serena Williams as the heatbeat of the WTA

When I heard that Serena withdrew from the Nasdaq I knew that there were going to be many post on this topic. I never thought that she had this kind of effect on people, both haters and fans. After checking out the many tennis message boards I have finally realized that this woman truly have cast a spell on many people. With a big match between Sharapova and Hingis coming up later today I truly believed that more people would have been hyped about this than the news that Serena has withdrawn from a tournament. What current player on tour generates this kind of passion from both fans and foes? Serena is desperately needed on the tour whether you love her or hate her and I hope she comes back soon.

Miss Maria Sharapova generates alot of posts whether she WITHDRAWS FROM Tennis Tournaments/poses in magazines/loses/wins...so she's up there w/ SERENA as the "HEARTBEAT of the WTA"

Well at this time with the return of Hingis it will be very interesting having both William sister (healthy and fit of course) on tour. And if some of the younsters (Vaidisova, Krajicek, Azarenka,...) improve and become a real thread could make the circuit even more interesting (like veterans against youngers again)

Actually Venus is. Just take a closer look at the WTA's logo.

Not in America, Serena's matches still get the highest ratings of all players in America and she also still gets more media play in the USA. Serena's story and personality will always be more enduring in America because she made her own name with her athletic accomplishments. Sure Maria will cash in on her "look" and be worth tons of money (maybe more than Serena eventually), but no about of money or popularity can buy you status as a legend. It's like comparing Sabitini and Graf.

I agree Serena is loved and hated by many people thatís what make her the major star she is today, I think Maria in the future will get the same amount of attention because she also a divisive person you either hate her or love. They both Serena and Maria just have that star quality.

She is certainly not the Meatbeat of the WTA

BepaZvonareva Don't read my reps anymore, very relaxing Lydia Ko , Felicity Jones, Emilia Clarke, Rachel Khoo.

I think Serena is a lot like Helen Lawson. I can just see Serena barking, "The only winner that comes out of a tournament entered by Serena Williams is Serena Williams, and that's ME, baby, remember?"

There you go with your same bullshit all over again.

There is nothing divisive about Maria. If she were that divisive, she wouldn't have any sponsors. Its just the nut-cases out there who look for things to hate in everyone.
