Maria is more introverted than extroverted, but her quick wit and (dry) humour is that of someone who is the absolute opposite of socially awkward. I guess she just doesn't speak out loudly and freely and dance on court like others. I remember one of her after-match off court interviews at the AO this year: "What are we all cheering about? Do we all like wine?"

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.
Yep. See Sheldon Cooper for an extreme example .

Императрица Мария is an introvert; most probably an INTP since she has aspirations to be an architect.

Yup, if only Vicky could follow Императрица Мария's lead of tactful and intelligent acts such as yelling "RUN RUN" towards her opponents in matches.

Even the fanciest font cannot mask the high level of fail in this post.

Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.

First and foremost, I refuse to believe this is Apoleb. He was a refined troll with just the right amount of vile. This pest is just some wannabe Claycourter; obviously, it walked TF once before , however, it was so balantly redudant in its trolling that it is hard to say which former troll it actually is. Oh well, I cannot acknoweldge such nor deal with such peasantry anymore so I am putting it on IGNORE.

Jesus Christ. All this talk about Pova's 'dry' and 'quick' sense of humour. I swear her fans have perpetuated this beyond any evidence at all.

The way you lot talk about her, you'd think she was Joan Rivers or Phyllis Diller or something.

Keys and Babos seem extroverted whereas Kuznetsova and Barthel seem more introverted.
