Google Trends... Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams On Top.. JHH Least Popular.

http://www.google.com/trends?q=Venus...o=all&date=all

If you go to Google Trends On The Above Link, which is really interesting, it appears that Sharapova and Serena are the two most searched female tennis players out of the 5 questionable top current players (I would have added Clijsters but could only use 5). And Apparently JHH is the least popular, but that could also be because her name is complicated... who knows.. Anyways, I root for the Williams Sisters so I'm being fair when I say that Sharapova looks to really be the most popular female tennis player right now.

Google trends measures web searches on the internet, not popularity or recognition. 50 people searching for a topic multiple times a day can make a topic appear more popular than a topic that has 1000 people searching for it just once.

try Justine Henin without Hardenne or even Henin alone and the results are less radical. So your little theory is blown to pieces

She might be popular somewhere else but not in the states. There's an article on the most popular male/female athletes for 2006. Venus is number one, Serena second...I think Maria is 4th. A few others mentioned are Mia Hamm, Michelle Kwan and some I can't remember.

LOL, do these girls really care who is most popular? I think they care more about winning titles.

Well popularity means money (endorsements) in their pockets. So it is important in some ways because even if you are losing there's still endorsements rolling in.
