I think so. With her defeats and cocky statements and her past actions on the court. I think Justine is going to replace Hingis as the most disliked player, that tennis fans want to see lose a match.

note: note a player that is disliked has to be a great player. So this is not taking anything away at all from their tennis skills. Nor does all the below fanbases wish to see her lose.

It just seems that Justine has pissed off Kim fans, Lindsay fans and of course William fans. This total= a HUGE fanbase of people.

Sorry to say this but Martina wasn't one. The W sistaz are actually the ones fans most eagerly root against.

She had Euro fans, but alot of people rooted against her becasue she was winning everything and she had a potty mouth. Of course she was cocky.

EVIL WOMAN
Electric Light Orchestra

You made a fool of me
But them broken dreams have got to end
Hey woman you got the blues
Cause you ain't got no one else to use
There's an open road that leads no where
So just make some miles between here and there
There's a hole in my head where the rain comes in
You took my body and played to win
Ha, ha woman, it's a crying shame
But you ain't got nobody else to blame

Evil woman, evil woman
Evil woman, evil woman

Rolled in from another town
Hit some gold, too hot to settle down
But a fool and his money soon go separate ways
And you found a fool lyin' in a daze
Ha ha woman
What you gonna do
You destroyed all the virtues that the Lord gave you
It's so good that you're feelin' pain
But you better get your face board the very next train

Evil woman how you done me wrong
But now you're to wail a different song
Ha, ha funny how you broke me up
You made the wine now you drink a cup
I come runnin' every time you cried
I thoughjt I saw love smilin' in your eyes
Ha, ha very nice to know
That you ain't got no place left to go

lol, even at the US open, people sometimes rooted against american players playing Hingis When Hingis would say something, it would be attributed to her 'confidence' while if Venus said anything similar it came out as 'arrogance' in the press...
It made some sense at the time though, with her results Hingis clearly seemed as 'the chosen one' on a trajectory to greatness whereas Venus was this new kid with a loudmouth father, no results in juniors and a story about how she and her sister were going to determine the winner of all the slams in a few years

Justine needs to win a whole lot more before she can be considered in the same league for anything as Hingis.

please... Hingis was called arrogant all the time, as well as some less flattering things Not that it wasn't deserved, but no one was sugarcoating her statements and calling them 'confidence'

I doubt it. Henin is winning and now people are hating.

People always hate on those on top. However, Henin is a KNOWN liar. That's a strike.

Henin may not be popular on this board, but something tells me she's not crying in her waffles every morning over that.

The general public rooted against Hingis-I haven't seen signs of that yet with Henin.

I love Justine. I find her actions kind of funny.
She so wants to win at all costs; and doesn't give
a flying back hand f*ck what others think. Good for
her. In contrast to the other great 1 handed backhand
dynamo Amelie Mauresmo who's just too damn nice
to win in big events and to my disappointment is
really a big sissy. :lbf

If only there was another 1 handed backhand that
is a bit of both Amelie and Justine in the mental
toughness department and graciousness.

The more people hate Justine; the more I like her.
I don't think she'll be the favorite to bash against.
It looks to me of her being the player other players
don't like playing. lol.

Everyone is sweeped up by the media, that's it. All these quotes..I bet the media just picks some quotes out, change them a bit and face those quotes with words of another player with another opinion -> FIGHT

Generally, unbiased fans will cheer for the underdog in any given match. Justine can no longer be seen as the underdog (unless playing a Williams) and will therefore get some people cheering against her!

Simple really.
