Does anyone else have a bi-polar attitude about Caroline?

Because I definitely do.

Some days, I want her to get crushed badly. Other days, I wonder why I don't consider her one of my top favorites.

It's very confusing.

Anyone else have this attitude towards her or any player?

Re: Does anyone else have a bi-polar attitude about Caroline?

I'm attracted to her and she seems very nice ...

...but she would have to pay me to watch her play tennis; possibly the most dull game ever.

But I would happily pay her to let me help her shower after the match.

No but sometimes I can understand all that hate she gets (perhaps not all) & sometimes I just think why exactly do they hate her?

Rest in Peace Bally!

For me Marion Bartoli

Sometimes she makes a SF or Final run I'm happy for her and other times she losses 1st or 2nd round I'm happy she lost.

Re: Does anyone else have a bi-polar attitude about Caroline?

If she were average looking or unattractive, would she have fans and if so, who and why?

She seems like a nice girl based on the interviews I've viewed, but her game is just so uninspiring.

I've always secretly liked marion because she isn't the prettiest girl, it only makes her fight stronger.

The same is with Caroline, with the masses not liking her for no reason, it will only fuel her to win more.

Carol. Empress. Vika. P3tra. Garbine. Dasha. Casey. Marion.

I'm curious about this also.

Obviously, I am a fan of Dinara and JJ and look at all the hate they get for their looks I support Caro's pushing, if not just for the hilarious backlash from delicatecutter and the like The hate comments are often more uplifting than the win.

I'm not a fan and her game can test my patience but I give her credit for getting to a lot of finals this year. None of us can take that way from her!

Benji Schwimmer is gay. Do the sister wives know?!

Re: Does anyone else have a bi-polar attitude about Caroline?

I have the bi-polar reaction to Marion Bartoli. One minute I'm chearing her on and loving her and then the next pulling my hair out. I can understand the bi-polar reaction to Caroline. But I do NOT understand the loathing and hate that so many in this Forum have for her.

However, it is better for people to react to you than not at all, and I think there is something special and enigmatic about Bartoli. She may not be a multiple slam winner but she has a certain way with her which makes her interesting and which makes her stand out above all the other bland players. For example Petrova, Chakvatadze(I can't even spell it!), Kirilenko, Safarova and Radwanska and the Bondarenkos just leave me cold and don't spark any interest. And all those that are hating on Caroline - remember it is she who is getting all your attention!

Monica Seles Superstar. Her fans never forget.


Players I root for now: Heather, Laura, Lucie, Marion, Serena, Simona, Svetlana, Venus, Vika. And Caroline.
Doubles and Mixed Doubles are fun and underrated.

The same could be said about most film stars, pop stars and Barak Obama!

Well she seems pretty nice off-court and has a good and positive on-court demeanor too. But her game-style is just not my cup of tea.

She is hot. Sometimes, that's enough.

I don't really care about her game. But she's a good player.
