schiavone well respected on MTF

whenever i see wta being discussed on MTF i see schiavone being spoken of very highly along with justine

the ws + maria come in for the biggest criticism
can someone tell me why??
is it because she is a grinder like nadal

If you're not paying for something, then you're the product.

Her and Justine have "manly" playing styles.

Maria and WS have the stereotypical female game, so of course men's tennis fans won't really care for them.

Re: schiavone well respected on MTF

Women who hit with topspin generally get respect over there because on MTF, topspin = thoughtful tennis. I don't neccessarily agree with that but that is the general consensus over there.

Plus their more tom-boy atheletes. The WS and Maria are kinda glamorous and stuff, but they some of the toughest competitors on the tour and they should be respected for that.

Venus Williams. Serena Williams.
