Could someone rationally explain why all the bashing for Anna?

Has she or her fans ever said that she the next best thing? That she is currently best player around? That she has the most beautiful game? That she has the best second serve? That she is the most beautiful girl on the tour? (okok I did say that, but it's my taste. bash me not her). That she will be #1? Have I missed it?

The girl played smaller tournaments and won 2 in a row. GS winners didn't want to play them. How does it make her fault????

Could someone explain rationally what she did to have all the negativity?

Vassilissa is my girl............

From what I can gather from the critics they are a/ fans of people below her who are jealous she's outplaying their faves or b/ fans of the best players who find her ranking inflated because she's not yet done it on the Grand Slam level and only equate winning slams with success/being a good player. Never understood why someone else doing well threatens people so, it's only good for the game.

Are you a raving mental case with awesome groundstrokes? I'll probably like you...

That's what I'm thinking it. But it's not like she plays every tournament in the schedule. And what is she supposed to do: decline the points for winning the tournaments?

(PS. My questions are rethorical )

i havent bashed her but i think the reason is that she won two tournaments having weak fields
but having said that her game doesnt impress me but shes got heart and knows how to think and act acc to the situation

Re: Could someone rationally explain why all the bashing for Anna?

im in total agreement with shepster! i lova anna how good can she be i dont know can she win a slam i hope so! but what i do know for fact is shes number 6 in the world and deserves it, she has improved out of sight in the last 12 months, shes adding to her game and she works unbelievebly hard and is getting the rewards she deserves for that! if you think annas winning tournaments that have weak fields blame the girls that dont show up and dont work there asses off to be the best they can like anna does! i hope anna continues her rise through tennis and proves any doubters wrong!

I just never liked her and can't warm to her even though she's a nice girl.

Re: Could someone rationally explain why all the bashing for Anna?

I don't see it as bashing. She hasn't reached a slam SF yet. And a lot of people don't think she has the game to win majors.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

6 threads per day about her are simply too much. Sorry!

Re: Could someone rationally explain why all the bashing for Anna?

lately she has been on TV alot (Fed Cup, Stanford)

so I have had a chance to see her play and there is nothing about her that impresses me that much ... she can beat headcases in the Top 10 but she folds like a cheap tent against slam champs

she always gets weak draws (beat Schnyder, Safarova to reach GS QF) and wins weak tournaments so she is extremely overated

plus her voice is annoying

so basically that put her on my blacklist

i am not saying the bashing is justified i am just trying to analyze IMHO she has played well as per her talent pool so that justifies her being no 6 the others are not playing that much like venus or serena but that doesnt take anything away from anna
its more a product of the fact that we don't have bonus points anymore
if we did it wouldn't be that bad a situation in the rankings
venus and serena and some of the injury ridden other players and all their supporters would be very happy if we go back to bonus points

can we have a ranking based on the bonus points system
if she is no 6 there she has silenced everybody

Re: Could someone rationally explain why all the bashing for Anna?

From what I remember it all began with "Will Chakvetadze sneak her way to US Open title?" thread. Then we discovered she's never beaten GS champion since she defeated post-Olympics Myskina who was in free downfall back then.
And afterwards some found it ridiculous when player with 1-20 record vs GS champions was moving up to No.6 in the world.

Re: Could someone rationally explain why all the bashing for Anna?

can someone tell what her ranking would be if bonus points are included
that would be a much fairer assessment of rankings
