View Full Version : Players that make you think "How did they ever get fans?"

I was just thinking about players and a few I think how did they gat any fans? or How did they get so many fans?

One player who made me think the latter was Maria Kirilenko, I have never understood why she has so many fans, she's totally overratted as a player - just look at her current results, she has no weapons, and is lucky to be in the top 50. Her looks are overratted, they are so many players who are far better looking than her - I've been to eastern Europe and she just looks your average girl there, she is nothing special to look at, she's just a pair of boobs.

I also can't buy her I'm so sweet and innocent act. Sweet and innocent girls don't wear outfits like this:

People please don't think I'm hating for no reason but I also think she isn't a very good player to her fans. I was at wimbledon this year and I went and saw her practising and after she finished me and my friends asked for her autographs, she signed about 3 out of 20 fans waiting for her, she didn't say a word. I think she's worse than Nicole Vaidisova (who I've had good experiances with.)

I also think she is very cold towards other players, just look at this video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJ30U05v-4A

If you go to the end of the tiebreak, she throws her racquet towards the crowd (which is dangerous) but she also storms out of the arena after giving the coldest handshake ever.

Maybe I'm biased against her because of my bad experiance but I do feel like because I can see past her blonde hair a boobs I can objectivly see that she's not the nicest player and she's not the best.

Why do you care who others choose to like or dislike? This is the sort of ridiculous thread topic that is guaranteed to degenerate into nastiness.

She may not but her fans make out she is.

Whenever she loses a match people go on about how sad it is because she's so nice blah blah blah...everyone loses a match once in a while...so people need to get over it.

So that's got nothing to do with the player, right?

true but my problem with her is that she is overratted as a player, and she isn't the nice player she's made out to be, she cold and doesn't appreciate her fans, well she doesn't show any appreciation to them.

but really - you never can tell why a certain player has a fanbase.

That maybe but alot of people would agree that doing the bare minimum to please your fans isn't the actions of a 'nice' player.

Read up some more on her...and you may learn. Every player is different, Maria won the USO as a junior and was a promising talent who is yet to fulfill her expectations...but there has been glimpses.

IMO she had good reason to ditch her racquet and walk out

O.K. One thing is to be talented and a good player another thing is to nice.
Nice is Arantxa and also good player. I think Amy Frazier is nice.
Dementieva is a very good player, isn't she? But maybe not that popular.
Maria K is beautiful, very beautiful. Amelie is a very good player.

I can think of two reasons why Kirilenko has a lot of fans. The names of those reasons are Left Boob and Right Boob.

Honestly, I thought this thread would be about much lower ranked players.

Kimster
Nov 13th, 2006, 02:59 PM
People will always have their own reasons to like a player : type of play, personality, looks....

And then there are those jumping on a bandwagon whenever a certain player suddenly gets better. But that's an entirely different topic. :p

I know very much people who saw her and all say that she is so friendly... they saw her at Zürich...
I don't know why you want that other people hate her but she is a very friendly person.
In this match she was just sad... it was a very important game for her... it was in moscow and she played horrible. I can understand her... i think i would do the same... :rolleyes:

I don't want people to hate her, I want people to see past their rose tinted glasses.

And as someone else has pointed out, she wouldn't be as popular if she didn't play with her boobs hanging out, she's meant to be playing a tennis match not posing for playboy!

I'm not suprised that Kirilenko has fans - she's got some variety in her game and she has the sweet and helpless look going for her - but I am suprised that she has as many fans as she does. Anna C, for example, is another pretty blonde Russian with a good game, has shot up the rankings this year but she doesn't seem to have anywhere near as many fans. :confused:

I'm neutral on both but it seems odd to me.

The reason she tossed her racket was because it was a culmination of frustrating early round losses she suffered in the previous tourneys leading up to the Moscow Open. She was in the midst of a terrible slump that had been going on for months and all that frustration finally boiled over. Yes, tossing the racquet was bad, but she's not the first to do that. Hingis comes to mind. She was back in her hometown and wanted to perform well in front of her fans. Being unable to snap the losing streak made her lose her composure on the court. It's good that she did show some emotion.

I think we probably shouldn't be so quick to make judgements about a player's personality based on one or two incidents. Everyone has off days and sometimes the frustration can become too much.

Even the players who are thought to be especially nice have the occasional strop.

i absolutely don't agree. makiri is so popular and believe me is not popularity just counted by tennis scores that if it was like this now juju would have been the most popular player ;) is not everything around tennis and i believe makiri is one of top 10 popular players in wta.

:scratch: I don't see tha many posts of Kirilenko fans saying she is so "sweet and innocent"...and I "own" half of a Kirilenko/Krajicek webboard!

I think you can't tell how someone is from like 1 minute of seeing them, because maybe they were having a bad day. Maybe you need to see them on a different day, or for longer. And also, I have heard that Maria's english is not the best, so maybe she didn't talk that day because she was shy, or embarrassed (I don't know, as I wasn't there). Coz I have hear alot more reports from people where she was nice, then when she wasn't.

I can't understand how Rodionova has so many fans, )coz she really is a bitch on court)... oh wait, they are pretty much all male, so yes I can! :angel: :lol:
