Sharapova was never hated by the tennis Media, she is and has always been the WTA's golden girl, do not confuse negativity printed in online tennis boards by regular fans with official Media disapproval...

Azarenka is going now through a negative and subtle shading and/or little recognition by the English-speaking Media, something that also affected Dinara, Justine, Hingis, Graf and Navratilova (and also Lendl, Muster, and male Latin "claycourters") among others, during their time at the top... do you see a common pattern there?
