I don't think anyone else draws large crowds at all,

Oh, and Ana will be number 3 in the next couple of years, or less,

Rena's Army, Ana and Vika!!!

Re: Rank active players by who you think draw the largest crowds

I'm not going to rank them, but from experience, the buzz is around Serena, to a lesser degree Venus.

Surprising one is Mirza, at least in Cincinnati - she gets a large crowd of Indians.

And of course, Sharapova.

It depends on the location. In Hong Kong Sharapova rules, for example.

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .
Justine Henin. Amelie Mauresmo. Francesca Schiavone.

This is really true. I think Serena and Maria draw large crowds wherever they go. Venus also.

But the location is key for everyone else. For example, I noticed you gave Dellacqua a mention. This Australian Summer, I bet there will be hoards of Aussie fans watching all of Casey's matches, because of her great run last year. Ivanovic will get lots of people coming to see her matches in Melbourne as well because everyone seemed to fall in love with her there this year.

So it really just depends on where the player is playing.

Ana also has family in Australia.

Also a lot of my [American] friends really like Jelena. But they still would put Serena and Venus over her. Others that I force to watch tennis with me want to see sharapova and then find her grunting slightly annoying.

But Sharapova has a huge pull anyway.

Location, location, location.

Before answering such a question I would need to know where this mythical match would take place.

It's all location

In the US barely anyone even knows who Lindsay Davenport is.

★ a. radwanska + lisicki + jankovic

Re: Rank active players by who you think draw the largest crowds

Sharapova and WS can draw large crowds regardless of location.

They are the ones known to non tennis fans, just like Jordan or Kobe in basketball or Tiger Woods in golf.

The others all depends on where they're playing.

As it's been said many times by many sources, no one makes the ratings needle move like a Williams.
