Is Tamarine Tanasugarn simple/naive?

Don't get me wrong, this isn't a bashing thread.

But has anyone else thought the same thing after seeing Tamarine play, either on the telly or live? To me, she has a lovely smile and an infectious manner, but there's something that suggests she's a little simple and naive as well.

It's hard to explain I guess. She's not quite in Justine's category of looking a bit childlike, but it seems there's something going on there with Tamarine.

Any thoughts, from anyone who knows more about her? Or perhaps it's just a trick of the light, or my imagination.

You have long been my goal, been my chasing, been my soul. I have hung out on the edge. But I just couldn't let go. There's a time to forgive. There's a time to forget. Close your eyes, get ready, set. Walk me down this fall I'm taking but don't let me go yet. Oh let me go, sweetheart, throw me, around you, like you know me. And remember me too. Remember me too from a dream i had of you. Mary Margaret O'Hara | Dream I Had | Apartment Hunting | 2002.

And I guess Conchita, Magui or Rita look normal to you?

Based on that fact alone, She's more intellegent then 90 percent of the other players!

Thats what u get for having a bubbly personality these days

wow, i didn't know she had a degree in law. that's impressive. must have been hard to balance being a pro and studying.

clearly she isn't simple then.

Don't kill me please.
This is probably a compliment, but for who I can't really tell.

I don't think Tammy's sister will appreciate a thread like this one, if she reads it..
You do know that Tammy's sister often posts on this board right?

Tammy is one my favourites and not only don't I take offense by your comments, I know exactly what you mean. I've seen her play live 3 times and Tammy's very sweet but there's a real innocence or wholesome quality about her that makes her appear to be "naive". Sometimes I think of her as a "woman-child". I see her as being very idealistic and being upset if she heard you speak unkindly of others. I admire that about Tammy.

I think we've just clarified that she's obviously not simple if she has a law degree.

and what do you have against being simple anyways??

If tammy's sister is as smart as Tammy, she'll see that no harm was intended with this thread. I like Tammy. I met her at Birmingham. She was very friendly, very giggly. Compared with the other players, she was a breath of fresh air. But I also thought she might be simple. And there's no crime in that.

thanks Curtis. This is what I meant to say, but didn;t choose the right words.

I have loads of respect for Tammy! As I said, she's one of my favourites but I don't treat my favourites like idols where I can't say anything remotely critical about their game or personality. I admire her more than most tennis fans, many of whom only see her as "that girl who gets the 4th round of Wimbledon every year" and not much else. When you see her play in person, you can see the little girl in her when she dumps forehands into the net or argue line calls. It's very sweet to see but there's a part of me that wants to go out on the court and hold her hand during changeovers to get her through the match.

you can't base intelligence on looks
lucky the person in this case has a law degree wich says enough

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I know that irma but we're all humans, and as humans we make observations about people based on their looks, among other things. None of us really know the players so our perceptions of them are based on what we read and what we see. I realise I may be wrong but naivete is one of the things that Tammy projects when I've seen her in person (3 times).

Irma that's naive, sorry. Just because a person goes to uni and gets a degree of any sort does NOT make them intelligent. All it says is that they were disciplined enough to graduate.
