Theres something phony about her and the Aussie crowd seem to notice that. They prefer the housewives like Clijster and Na. The distractions about the bad pedicure and having Sideshow Bob coming to her matches all made it look like a circus. Someone has to be the villain so of all the players, she seems to fit that role.
Which is a shame since I think she is more likable than someone like Pova or even Serena personality-wise.
