Steffi Graf was the least annoying player because she was always embarrased by her lovely nose and therefore she came across as being very humble, focused, and self depracating. She never tried to do the Sharapova ( I love you Big Masha) cashing in thing and she never got a nose job, I really respect the Fraulein Forehand. She is a treasure to our game.



Martina Hingis was a pain the in the ass but she was a loveable character. She was cocky but she was funny and smart in terms of tennis. We love little Chucky.


The Williams sisters are SO BEYOND ANNOYING. The don't know know how to play tennis, it is thoughtless and ugly and just bash, bash, bash. And anytime they lose it is the same old story "I played the worst match of my life, I played so horrible" How about giving some credit to your opponet? And those Burger King commericials? NICE. Way to fight back against obesity amongst your little kid fans.

Okay, so I'm confused.:confused: Almost 4,000 people bothered to vote for Steffi but barely 1,000 bothered to vote for Monica. So . . . to my feeble mind, Steffi is known by more people than Monica because three times as many people voted (positive or negative) for Steffi.:kiss: :hearts:

Or, do you have some other point that I'm missing???:lol: I want to know because this thread is terribly interesting, really.:p And, I'm sure Steffi has read about it and is currently crying to Andre about it.:lol: Maybe not at this moment, because they're too busy counting their money in between signing endorsement contracts and they have to take some time out to look after the babies . . . so, it might be a few days before Steffi can take some time out to have a good cry over this really interesting poll that some LOSER has taken the time to put on the Internet.:tape:

I really want to thank you because, as you know, some people have no life and reading stuff like this makes their day. You are such a good person, really.:rolleyes:

Yes, Graf was most annoying.
How she annoyed Seles, Navi, Hingis, ASV, Williams and their fans when she won slam after slam after slam and rewrote tennis history and set standard that most probably never will be broken.
Very annoying for many people indeed!

:lol:


Real tennis fans loved her though ...

Graf is not "hated", many fans of inferior players are just plain annoyed that she will be the greatest-ever for generations to come.

Hingis/Seles did the same?
With 2 and 5 blue-chip slams respectively against Graf's 18?
You must be kidding ... :lol:

Yeah both won 3 slams in a year and raped all their other opponents on court :wavey:

It's comparable, and nevertheless they are much more popular.

Take a look at you videos of FO 92 final, YEC 98 quarters (In the U.S.A.) and FO 99 final and tell me which player is cheered most.
A little hint: Her first name doesn't begin with a "M" ...... :lol:

funny you should use those matches as examples. graf was the heavy underdog in the 92 french open final, and playing as a german in france was way more popular than playing for the disbanding yugoslavia at the time.

the yec 98 quarterfinal crowd was only behind steffi during the second set after monica tore steffi apart in the first set.

and the crowd at the 99 french open hated hingis more than they loved graf. i wouldn't use that barbaric crowd as evidence of anyone's likability :retard:

Posters like you are the easiest - they hang themselves ...

1) Graf was NOT the "heavy underdog" at FO 92 as she had won the last two matches against Seles easily (the last one even on clay). She had 10 slam titles under her belt against Seles' 5.

2) The U.S. crowd was firmly behind Graf from the beginning of the YEC 98 match and especially so in the THIRD set. Not behind their countrywoman Seles.

3) Graf was the OVERWHELMING crowd favourite at FO 92, FO 95, FO 96 as well. And Hingis was the crowd's opponent at FO 97 when Majoli was cheered fervently.


BTW, the AO and FO Graf-Seles matches are great examples as too.

Graf was loved.
Seles got a little bit of compassion after The Stabbing.
Hingis was hated most of the time.
That's the difference.

we can go on an on with our opinion abt the french and the american crowd. it's largely subjective.

the only data (and calimero don't you love data??) we have here is the poll and the poll speaks for itself.

You sure about all this?

Graf has always been popular at the French. The French crowd also overwhelmingly supported her in the '92 Final. If you doubt this fact, I suggest you refer to the BBC Broadcast of the '92 Wimbledon Final in which Virginia Wade confirms this fact.

So, it was just in the second set that the crowd at the '98 YEC backed Steffi. How recently have you seen this match? Do you have the tape? The commentators were Virginia Wade and Bud Collins for MSG Sports. Fast forward to the third set. Wade comments on the crowd support. She concludes that they seem to be on Steffi's side. That's in the third set, not the second set.

The '99 French. Hated Hingis more than they hated Graf?

How deluded are you by your own hatred of Graf? The crowd's hatred for Hingis was situational. She broke the rules and she flaunted her disregard for them. The crowd obviously took that personally. The following year, the French crowd was cool, but nevertheless respectful to Hingis.

The French crowds have always loved Graf. She had the kind of flashy game the French appreciate. That was as true in '87 as it was in '99. Graf was brilliant.
