Most popular player amongs other players

Who do you think is more popular and well liked amongst their peers?

Im sure a lot of factors probably come into this like personalities, language, nationality etc. I know that most of the russian girls baring Maria S and Chaky seem to be quite close (lenaD, Myskina, Kuzzy, Safina and others) and same goes for the french girls.

I chose this group of players for no other reason than because they seem to be the most high profile.

Re: Most popular player amongs other players

I actually remember hearing that Kuznetsova was a favorite among the players, as was Ivanovic (except more with the staff).

Re: Most popular player amongs other players

Amelie and Svetlana are apparently both REALLY, REALLY popular with the players.

Certainly Kuznetsova; she is generally incredible well-liked on the tour. Everyone always seems to use the same word when describing her:

"bubbly"

It's a sad shame she doesn't bring that to the court.

I know just--just what you are--ah-ah.


I like the way that you taste, when you're all up in my face.

Re: Most popular player amongs other players

You lumped the Williams sisters together. What's up with that? Plus, the question should be addressed to the players. All you'll get here is a lot of fan bias.

That said, Myskina is without a doubt, the undisputed favorite among the players. And don't give me that "she's been away from the tourt for nearly a year" lame B.S. She's still, head and shoulders, the unquestionable favorite, so the thread can be closed now.

Re: Most popular player amongs other players

I realised after that I forgot to put Sveta in there and I don't know how to amend it! But it never occured to me to put momo in the list as I didn't think she was that popular. It turns out I might be wrong

I heard that Mykina's best friends are Jankovic and Sharapova...

Re: Most popular player amongs other players

It's too close to call between Serena and Justine.

Re: Most popular player amongs other players

Seriously I think Amelie and Sveta are liked, and Clijsters was too.

Re: Most popular player amongs other players

Players are not knocking themselves out in the WTA in order to make friends. Its winning that counts, not popularity among players.
