Nice girls don't win Gran Slams

Well they say nice guys don't get anywhere but what about the girls. We seem to hear a lot about how Makiri is very popular with the other players on tour, how friendly she is etc. But maybe to be a Gran Slam champion you need to be nasty. Ruthless. That what the top women seem to have. The problem with that is I might stop supporting Makiri if she were that way. Would you prefer her to be a good loser or a bad winner?

On the issue of her current form, I think we should keep it in perspective. She has a coach now, which she desperately needed and if he can sort her out pschologically/get her tactics right on court she'll climb the rankings fast. It would be a lot worse were she suffering from a major injury. Blaming Igor is daft and I don't think the Stella McCartney/Vogue thing should matter.

My only concern is with Yuri who needs to be put in the background in a supporting role. He's not a coach as we've all painfully had to see.

Expect to see Maria seeded for the USO.

Kim C. was one exception. Hopefully, Makiri will be another one.

Re: Nice girls don't win Gran Slams

maybe you don't need to be "ruthless", i think you need motivation and passion. the williams sisters were poor and their father, with no previous tennis knowledge (only a book) managed to get to the top. ivanovic is one of the nicest players on tour, but she trained in a disused swimming pool and was forced to leave serbia cause of constant bombing. cause of their difficult upbringing the williams sisters and ivanovic play with passion, something that you don't always see in maria.

Re: Nice girls don't win Gran Slams

To win the slam player must be mentally strong, must be fighter...Thats why I think Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic never will win the slam...Honestly, I cant imagine Makiri winning the Grand Slam...Sorry... But I wish her all the best, of course

I'm alaways right, even when Im wrong...

Re: Nice girls don't win Gran Slams

I would prefer her to be a good loser. I don't support players because they are grand slam champions. I enjoy watching her play and she seems to be a good person. A lot of my favorites will probably never will grand slams. Doesn't matter much to me. I just wish that Makiri will use her potential and try her hardest in every match she plays.

Re: Nice girls don't win Gran Slams

well this has been a big topic after wimbledon on the daniela forums aswell, and i think its true, arragance is a need to win a slam, humble kind-loving girls on the tour i dont think are capable of winning slams but i dont know why, its just a need i hear about, u need to be arrogant and driven, but i dont understand why cant players be nice unsoar losers and well driven to succeed at a grand slam, haha it annoys me that kiri, daniela and ana are players who i dont think will be grand slam champs

Re: Nice girls don't win Gran Slams

also i think this was why clijsters was so popular and maybe even henin, nice humble girls, winning slams, yet still down to earth and dont get a big head about things

That's what I was thinking and laughing at.
