Re: What players are socially awkward ? And extrovert/introvert ?

what actually is being socially awkward ? I know it's different from extrovert/introvert which is why i separated them in the thread title, but I wonder what exactly it is to be socially awkward as many seem to confuse it with being shy etc.

Re: What players are socially awkward ? And extrovert/introvert ?

Azarenka and Serena sometimes come across quite socially awkward during on court interviews. Azarenka can try to be funny but instead say something completely inappropriate (like after her match with Hampton). Serena can sometimes be in a different world, responding to questions without saying an actual sentence ie "I mean, yeah, like...wow, you know?" Or something along those lines.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Sesil the ultimate extrovert.

Jankovic and Serena too, the tour needs more extroverts

Re: What players are socially awkward ? And extrovert/introvert ?

I think being socially awkward is, you don't know the right thing to do or say when you try to interact with others. Like, your neighbor's dog goes missing, say, for a few months, you just try to express concerns, but end up saying, oh... so... anything about the dog? Is it found dead yet?

I don't know how to say if anyone is socially awkward or not, tbh, they could be only shy.

Not Justine Henin that's for sure. She's perfect in every way.

h88888tttteeeer.!!!!1!

She was sick shy though as well (I said "as well" to indeed show I don't confuse shyness with social awkwardness).

Hingis was socially awkward too, especially with poor Momo and Caro with her failed jokes

Martina's sublime tennis made up for it though

Only remember her say that she was surprised Hampton was hitting everything back she gave even with an injury, lol. And cant remember but she kind of made it out like she was playing a nobody and was pushed hard. I found it cute, that's the time she started to grow on me.

Sort of got to hear the interview, the way she said it was funny imo. It seemed really honest, just saying what she was feeling in her heart. Also why i began to love her. (may have also misunderstood some of the questions there as well)
