Question Biggest fanbase in Asia?

Which player has the biggest fanbase in Asia? I presume that it could be the Chinese players (Shuai Peng, Zi Yan, etc) or Sania Mirza, but I could be wrong...

Maybe the posters from Asia can give the answers in here?

Re: Biggest fanbase in Asia?

If Justine finally decides to play an Asian tournament, we'll be able to see how many people are rooting for her As she always gets a lot of new fans when she plays a new tournament, I'm sure, she'd get a lot of new Asian fans

Re: Biggest fanbase in Asia?

Um, which part of Asia? If we are talking China or Japan, I'd guess it would be Sharapova... am I right?

God, do you ever post something that's not about Justine?

Hantuchova and Sharapova are really popular in Japan because they're tall, white and skinny. Mirza is probably the most popular because India has so many people and she has a bigger profile there than the Chinese players do in China.

Um, well... the entire Asia is too big... Sania would obviously be popular in India but not in Japan.

Re: Biggest fanbase in Asia?

Williams?

Because Asians tend to have some curiousity against 'black-skinned' people.
So if they are there,I believe they will cheer them like lunatics if Williamses are able to play dominant tennis.
