Re: Martina Navratilova says that nobody how hard she tried she was not loved by Fren
So the French crowd only like ultra feminine women but loves Amélie, Justine and Fran ? Your post doesn't make any sense.
To be honest I don't know if Martina N. was loved or not, but she says she TRIED to be loved and I think that's the problem. Same thing happened with Serena this week, it seems like she was desperate for the crowd to love her and in the end it got to her.
The French crowd is rude and dumb (at least on the main courts) for the most part. It sucks but you have to deal with it. I don't think their hatred towards players is logical. They're not homophobic, they're not anti-American (Roddick, Agassi are well liked for instance), and despite what some posters might think I don't think they're racist (Tsonga and Monfils are the most popular players here, I remember James Blake being well liked too).
