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

I dont know why people are calling Bartoli socially awkward. I dont think someone socially awkward could come up with as many great quotes/insults as she does in her pressers.

Davenport is not socially awkward, she's actually very well spoken

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

Azarenka's 2012 AO Final speech shows how socially awkward she is. And I've definitely felt awkward listening to Serena sometimes especially during her speeches. They're definitely not shy though and that's what makes them awkward.

Venus and Maria seem pretty mellow and down to earth though.

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
How is saying Henin is socially akward hating?

No, you just teased me because Henin was my favourite, you mentioned her just to tease me and my H88tterrrZZ was really not serious

I don't even know if she was socially awkward or just sickinengly shy.

Elina Svitolina will PEAK in 2016

Maria actually seems quite introverted but she's far from socially awkward.

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

I am an introvert, I studied introversion and I can't believe that AnaIvanovic and Maria Sharapova are introverted.
We are about 5-7% of the total.
The one tennis player that I consider introverted is (was) Elena Dementieva.

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

Socially awkward: Wickmayer,Azarenka, maybe Bartoli, maybe Kvitova but I understand her fellow players like her a lot. I think with Petra it was just a struggle to speak in English.

shy/introvert: Stosur, Venus Williams, Justine Henin, Elena Dementieva, Dinara Safina, Ana Ivanovic, Anabel Medina Garrigues

extroverted: Francesca Schiavone, Jankovic, Wozniacki, Petkovic

I would not call amg introverted. Shes not shy at all. Remember hopman cup 07 - she san happy birthday to a spectator infront of a while crowd. Even her hopman cup 2013 speech was her just being a smartass haha

It has nothing to do with being 'introverted' or 'shy', although it may appear to take those forms; it has more to do with being clueless to-one-degree-or-another as to social norms. Socially awkward people often say-or-do inappropriate things without meaning to so so, offend others: such as laughing at the corpse at a funeral and/or don't do what what is socially expected of them. They lack smoothness and grace in interpersonal interactions. None pf these girls are really socially awkward, contrary to many of the opinions voiced in this thread.
