With Ivanovic, if she is bageled she will at least try to put a brave face on it, she doesn't break down like a little baby in the way Lisicki does.
That's my major bug-bear with Lisicki. I don't dislike her that much but it annoys me how she's the epitome of confidence when things are going well but this completely dissipates as soon as things start to go awry.

I have the the same question with Bartoli fans who hate Ana .

Bine 'self absorbed'? I guess alot of tennis players are self absorbed to an extent, they have to be selfish in a way to be fully focused on their own goals. Bine is not self absorbed though in general though and is a wonderful off court personality and noone smiles more on court. Obviously she was going through a rough patch for much of 2012 and the smiles weren't so frequent. I'm so sick of the mean comments against her calling her a 'cry baby', 'drama queen' and 'self absorbed'! atleast this thread her haters are on record and I know who to badrep!

and to those calling her 'Lisicki' as she once said when called by her last name 'Hey, my name is Sabine please'.

If you're hatin' on Bine, you're hatin' on me and my eye is on you.

That`s funny but not Andrea´s opinion obviously. She wrote in her Pune Blog:

My best friends are definitely the Germans and the Serbians, which means Julia Goerges, Angelique Kerber - we practice together and are very close. And Sabine Lisicki obviously. And then the Serbian girls, Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic - when we see each other we always go for dinner and catch up. Julia is my what's up buddy - we talk every day almost!"

Maybe she is too shining and smiling? For me sometimes it looks fake and unnatural. I don't very dislike her, but there are more friendly girls on tour, she isn't the only one.
+ I'm not a fan of her tennis, but she play little more aggressive though.

Like:
1) Agnieszka Radwanska
2) Petra Kvitova
3) Serena Williams
4) Vera Zvonareva
5) Sam Stosur
6) Roberta Vinci
7) Angelique Kerber
8) Tamira Paszek
9) Nadia Petrova
10) Venus Williams

Dislike:
1) Maria Sharapova
2) Caroline Wozniacki
3) Julia Goerges
4) Bojana Jovanovski
5) Liezel Huber
6) Marion Bartoli
7) Sara Errani
8) Urszula Radwanska
9) Victoria Azarenka

Why I like players that I like:

1) Agnieszka Radwanska - you all knew it
2) Petra Kvitova - she's lovely. I love her game when she's on
3) Serena Williams - oozes confidence, beautiful service motion, collects wigs like there's no tomorrow. I love her hair
4) Vera Zvonareva - I love her game, shame about her injuries Please make a comeback in 2013
5) Sam Stosur - I love watching her struggle mostly against her own nerves and weaknesses. Plus her face is beautiful
6) Roberta Vinci - she had a great Summer in North America displaying old-school, all court brand of tennis
7) Angelique Kerber - would be higher on my list, but I hated the way she quitted in Beijing. Still, she's a feisty character and has a lovely counterpunching game
8) Tamira Paszek - a woman of a thousand lovely expressions.
9) Nadia Petrova - an older player that strings her form back together in what seems to be an eventual comeback to top 10
10) Venus Williams - I don't like her game truth be told, but her struggle against her disease is truly inspiring. Most players her age are long retired anyway.

Why I dislike players that I dislike:

1) Maria Sharapova - obnoxious shrieks, obnoxious celebrations, boring game, taking forever between points
2) Caroline Wozniacki - fake sunshine personality, verbal abuse towards umpires, annoying grunt, ugly forehand
3) Julia Goerges - she's a total bitch when playing against lower ranked opponents. Her behavior towards Muguruza Blanco in Barcelona and Arantxa Rus was unacceptable. Describing an opponent she just beat as a "journeywoman" on twitter was another low blow
4) Bojana Jovanovski - the shriek is ridiculous, the game is ugly
5) Liezel Huber - what needs to be said?
6) Marion Bartoli - another one with disgraceful behavior. She always hobbles when she's hammered by the opponent, then if she makes a successful comeback she runs to the chair at the changeover. Really? Plus, the double handed forehand is ugly and should be banned
7) Sara Errani - obnocious shriek and obnoxious celebrations
8) Urszula Radwanska - same like Goerges, can display absolutely nasty behavior on smaller courts.
9) Victoria Azarenka - I hated her behavior at Australian Open and Indian Wells. She's been mostly OK since then, though her terrible banshee shriek remains an issue
