I hear what you're saying. But that's over simplifying a bit, I think.

Keep in mind if Petra won a lot, she would gain more fans as well.

Obviously, a lot of people still root for, like her, wish her to do well, even when she's playing poorly. Venus, just gained a bunch of additional votes (I hate to say it), cause of her recent ailment and struggles. But I'm not hating, or have a problem with that.

Just look at Lisicki for comparison. She tumbled in that poll, and she hasn't won much/squat, or been a threat to anyone (minus Wimbledon) since 2011. And Serena (who won almost everything), still ended the year #4.

I understand why, but you're not giving Petra enough credit.
