Who are freinds and who are enemies between WTA players?

Hi guys, this has been always the question I asked to myself when I see players fighting for a match. I know that tennis is an individualistic game, but what about friendship in this game? Anybody has an idea who is a friend of who? And if there is a friendship as well can anybody tell us a story about that? For example i know that for the moment Mauresmo en Justine are not the best friends but that Bartoli and Justine are friends and they have too much respect for each others...

Re: Who are freinds and who are enemies between WTA players?

After the AO of 2006 Mauresmo was furious about Justine... Till now they are real enemies. But I Think Mauresmo is jealous about Justine. Mauresmo find that Justine has the same game like her but she wins more and more and mauresmo wins less and less... The secret?: The mental of JUSTINE.
I think the players who have the less friends in the game are The williams, en Sharapova... They are so arrogant... Incredible... But I love old times between Hingis and The williams... It was the Cold war era in tennis...

And you have what proof of this?

As for two players that actually never liked each other, one of the most interesting feuds was between 80's German rivals Sylvia Hanika and Betting Bunge.

Bettina constantly had crappy things to say about her; everything from Hanika faking injuries to not being a team player for Fed Cup. Never heard Sylvia refute what Bunge had to say but wow did Bettina NOT like Sylvia.

Another catty player I thought was JoAnne Russell. When she began faltering in her results she turned to broadcasting and that was during the years Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert pretty much were seen in all the major finals.

Everytime Russell called one of their matches you could clearly tell she had nothing but love for Chris and disdain for Navratilova. Not sure what the story was there but damn Russell would let Martina have it every chance she could.

Everything that comes to WS is bad, nothing positive. i believe you are cofusing personality, character, selfsteem and desire with arrogance. get over it

Re: Who are freinds and who are enemies between WTA players?

hingis and william sisters are not enemies.
not even when they are young, many times serena and hingis has joke many times about it. infact i should say they are pretty good.

hingis and amelie, amelie and henin, are not really 'good' friend, but i don't think they are called enemies either.

Hingis Fan since 1997

When did Henin and Sharapova become enemies? They both speak very, very highly of each other and there is great respect between each of them. They are not best friends, but they certainly are not enemies. Where did you read or get it from that they are enemies?
