Serena, acts like teen-aged school girl one time, and then suddenly wants to shove balls down your throat.

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

It'd be really difficult to know any of this info without having consistent, protracted social interactions with these players. As someone else said, being an introvert isn't the same as being socially awkward and being an extrovert isn't the same as being popular or a social butterfly. Extroverted people like having social interaction with others. It replenishes and rejuvenates them. If an extroverted person is tired or stressed out, that person would probably want to congregate with their friends or even a group of strangers and do something (clubbing, group dinner, board game, etc.) with those people. Introverts are the opposite. They recharge by being alone. An introverted person who is tired or stressed out would probably gravitate toward having dinner, reading a book, or watching a movie alone in their apartment. Social interaction tends to take energy from introverts whereas those same interactions bolster the energy of extroverts.

There are a lot of theories that President Obama is actually an introvert. Clearly he has a lot of friends and doesn't have problems interacting with people in social settings. On the other hand, Steve Jobs, who was known for being an intensely private person, is supposedly one of the world's most successul extroverts. Famous people aren't always what they appear to be. I'm sure the same goes for the WTA.

Extrovert ---> Li, Vika, Caro, Serena, JJ, Hingis, Capriati

Introvert ---> Masha, Ana, Sam, Venus, Petra, Seles, Graf

Socially awkward ---> Henin and Bartoli. Who else? Maybe Davenport when she was a dump truck. How about Kuzzy?

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

Extroverts - Sloane, Serena, JJ, Li, Caro, Heather
Ambivert- Laura (she can be really loud and talkative in certain situations but she has a reserved persona when being interviewed etc.)
Introverts - Masha, Venus, Ana, Petra
Socially Awkward - Davenport, Bartoli,

It's a new art form showing people how little we care.

Indeed, and there are extroverts who are among the most socially awkward.

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

Being introverted can be a good thing in tennis, at least when it comes to fellow players (see Sharapova ). It means you're less likely to form emotional attachments that could hinder your ability to play your best against someone (subconsciously I bet a lot of players have trouble bringing it against someone who's a good friend ).

I actually really love listening to Vee's voice, its very calm and mellow. She'd be a great commentator

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

Not sure if all the mentioned extroverts are naturals and were truly like that all their lives.

For example until around 2002-2003, Serena used to have a reserved demeanor and speech.

Completely agree!! And then it just comes off as she's trying too hard and makes it awkward to watch.
