Your list is pure bullshit: http://www.google.com/trends/explore...2%2012m&cmpt=q

Additionally, players who have to endure "WTA spelling" lose pretty much all the traffic they generate from their home country if you just check for the WTA spelling, e.g. Görges vs. Goerges or Kvitová vs. Kvitova.

Impressive to have so many tennis players on the list.

.
You editorial comments give life to the list.
I wished you had added the same for Li Na and Ana Ivanovic

Tennis benefits by being the only international individual women sports with 4 marquis events every year.
People are "forced" to be proud of their country woman; explaining why you the likes of Yanina Wickmayer, Petko, Dominica C. etc...are on the list.

I am not surprised by high position of Sania Mirza given the enormous population behind her.
I am surprised by low position of Li Na, again - given the enormous population behind her.
I interpret it that Mirza might be the only world known Indian athlete (well, relatively known compared to other Indian athletes), so no wonder she has such a high status in India.
As to Li Na, China has enough athletes to care about, so Li Na must compete against a quite large internal market for an attention.

And I am totally surprised by Ivanovic on the list. She is a celebrity of the distant past, but somehow the population got it engraved in their minds that Ana is a "hot tennis chick", and somehow that sticks longer than it should.

Re: 50 Most Googled Female Athletes of 2012 list (wta players ranks)

It's just another proof how WTA Tour dominate in World of women's sport.
There is 20 WTA players out of TOP50 most searched during OLYMPICS YEAR!

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

In fairness Ana isn't ahead of anyone who is super relevant all the big names are ahead of her on the list.
