I think monica has more fans than any past/present player (and her fans are really dedicated and loyal), followed by william sisters and martina hingis.

Niminator!!! Are you blind there in Israel?!? All the tennis people I know, which is also extensive, cheer Monica on, be it their favorite or not. If Monica isn't their number one fave, and their fave loses, then Monica becomes their favorite player! Monica has been through so much, who couldn't love her?

Well i dont ( Dont go off, just answering your question) and by the way, thanks for your nice post the other day.

I do agree though that Monica seems to have the most fans. I am not one myself but i'm also not blind or deaf. its a hard question to answer, i mean who really knows such a thing?

Your welcome Cahill! Some ppl. like yourself aren't fans of Monica, which astounds me, but I'm not you, so oh welL...

Nimi
Jul 18th, 2002, 08:30 PM
dude, i live here, i think i have a better idea.

anyways, we already had a poll which Jenny won, if anyone would want to bump it just for a proof...

darren cahill
Jul 18th, 2002, 08:34 PM
Well thanks for being cool about it. My thing is, i was never a fan to begin with, so i wasnt after 'the incident' either. I dont become a fan of someone just because of trials and tribulations of a player. everyone has a cross to bear. so what? i watch the game of tennis cause i love the game, what each players personal struggles and whatever doesnt come into play for me. I want to player who plays best to win, not because of something they are going through. It is a topic that is very fascinating though. and i am being serious. if there was a college course on the fascination of monica seles, i'd sign up for sure. and i am not being sarcastic, it really does fascinate me how many people became fans just because of all her tragedies. it seems so fake to me. i could see it if you were a fan already or on the border, but i know a lot of people who couldnt stand her before and now kiss her ass crack. once again thanks for your kind post, it was nice of you after our lashings out at each other. sorry about that.

Martina & Monica!

ktwtennis some people were no fan of monica when she was number 1 and it would have been very hypocrite to have become her fan because of what she went through and suddenly would have root for her in 95!(and yeah I am talking about myself;))
I respect her and will defend her when I think I need to do that(especially about the 93 crime because she got injustice there from what I know and her weight because it annoys me incredible that people attack her so much because of it)
But become her fan and say french open 92 final was a great match, no that goes to far;)

I'm not a Monica fan either and where I live, I don't know any Monica fans either :confused:

Anyway if we're talking worldwide, anybody who says it's not Anna K is blind. Even if 50 % of her fans are just fans because they like her looks, they're still fans!

darren cahill
Jul 18th, 2002, 08:49 PM
Well irma you said what i have been trying to say for days, and you did it faster and better than i could have! Thats pretty much it in a nutshell. I wasnt a fan then and i wasnt going to become one now, just because of all her baggage. Which i admit is huge, but guess what, things happen. It doesnt mean you automatically have to root for someone because of those things. If something happened to Venus or Serena would you HAVE to become a fan?

Alex Stevenson, it is just that very few people dare to admit it.

All I can say is that if Jennifer won a fan poll, it was taken during a time when not too many people were visiting the board. :p

I can't speak to the rest of the world, but I've been to a good many U.S. tournaments, and I've never heard the crowd scream and chant and cheer for any other player like they do Monica.

Of course, Anna wins hands down (!) with the casual (young, male) fans. ;)

that poll was like a month ago.
anyways, this is a fact, AnnaK has the most fans worldwide by far!

Williams Rulez
Jul 19th, 2002, 01:30 PM
I must say it has to be Anna... she wins hands down. She has millions of fans, she sells out stadiums, so has everyone cheering for her. I mean she is very popular.

IMO, I think it is in this order:

Anna
Jennifer
Venus
Monica
Martina
Serena

But it varies... Serena is more popular in US than Martina for sure and I suppose that it is not inconceivable that Jennifer and Venus are more popular than Anna in the US. And Monica has many many loyal fans too, I can tell on TV... I may be underrating her.

It's obviously Anna Kournikova..... but Daniela Hantuchova is gonna be hugely popular now the world is discovering her, especially if she can get inside that magical top-10 soon.
