Nathalie Tauziat, Anke Huber, and Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario could all get quite upset on court sometimes.

azarenka - pavlyuchenkova - li - jankovic
garcia - bencic - paszek - rus - kanepi - kuznetsova - stephens
bouchard - karatantcheva - larcher de brito - voegele - lim - mladenovic

mary pierce - forever #1
vaidisova - kournikova - golovin - henin
the boys - federer - gasquet - del potro - haase - nishikori

Daniela loves to give stares to the line judges after every questionable call. And then she pouts and puts her hands on her hips.

oh give me a BREAK will ya guys?? the last time capriati "threw a fit and cursed and screamed" more than the usual player was, what, like two YEARs ago? why is it that people just LOVE to talk about that bit about her? is she worse than the average ATP player? threads like these that talk about capriati's supposed former horrendous language junkie persona on court pop up more often than she utters a single profanity, i swear. (no pun intended)

what do you expect her to do? sit down and knit a damn sweater between changeovers?

hollywood's girls:




ana ivanovic daniela hantuchova jelena jankovic martina hingis


and... jennifer capriati !!

Petrova. I have never seen another player who would be that much owned by her own emotions. Maybe she is learning and improving now, but when I saw her last time at USO against Schnyder, it was really something..

Hey we're not saying it's a bad thing Capriati has a temper, but she's not exactly calm out there. She'll mutter out a few obscenities after a bad shot. Davenport's the same way. Even Monica blurted out a few last year.

Few more hotheads to add: Aniko Kapros and Barbara Schett

Patty has got by far the most horrific temper of any female player that i've ever watched (she's still my fave though ). She often flies into violent, childlike tantrums when losing, swears profusely, smacks balls into the crowd, and probably breaks at least one racket per match. I read that in a match against Dani H, the WTA supervisor came out after Patty lost a point and nailed a ball into the stands, because the umpire wanted to default her. It's funny that you mention the Petrova match from the USO, because i saw that match too and i don't remember Nadya being that upset. I do remember that Patty was unusually calm that night, though!

Second worst temper that i've seen is Poutchek. That girl has got a major league attitude out there! Cussin and bitchin after every point, it's like high school Drama 101. The quality of the tennis isn't great, but i recommend her matches for the entertainment value.
