I never said she's not extremely popular across most of the planet. Have you forgotten the multiple threads on which you and others have been proclaiming her the biggest tennis icon ever, well-known and loved in EVERY COUNTRY on earth? I don't give a flying fuck if she is well known in most countries. That doesn't make her the biggest tennis icon ever in every country on the planet.

Someone who is truly popular would have a high number of searches on a constant basis, not just a couple of spikes when their name is in the news because they just won something. If you go look at the last couple of years, searches for Wozniacki were as high as they were for Maria. Does that mean that Wozniacki is worshipped and beloved across the U.S.?
