View Full Version : Obligatory Poll! Why do you like Myskina?

So Anastasia Myskina manages to battle her way past Shinobu Asagoe despite injuring herself quite badly.

They taped up her leg and on she went to win the match. Clearly when she's not throwing her hands up in disgust and talking to herself she's a very good tennis player. But she's also plays well when she is going into full histrionics.

But anyway, the question is, why do you like Myskina?

For me, it's the way you always get your moneys worth with her. She seems to fight a full scale battle against herself every game, when the chips are down she can play brilliantly, thumping the ball to the line with each shot and chasing down balls with great speed.

But then other times she loses the battle and plays like a turkey, with an unforced error here and a double fault there.

She's had a hard time lately and I hope she gets through it and becomes the grand slam winner she once was.

She strikes me as a bit of a headcase, and is great to watch because of it. Like was posted in that other thread, she's a great fighter.

1st round against Bohmova 5/7-7/6-6/4 (being 7/5-4/1 down)
3rd round against Jankovic 6/0-5/7-10/8 (being 5/1 down in the third)
4th round against Dementieva 1/6-7/6-7/5 (being 6/1-3/0 and 2 MP down)

And now she battles injury to fend off Asagoe. Feel the love!

Multiple votes allowed.

1 to 6 for me. But there are at least another dozen or so reasons as well. She's beautiful, graceful, complicated, a bit of a nutter, funny, sweet and unpredictable. And very real and human too. In short she is just extremely lovable.

1 - 6 & more. Some intangible quality drew me to her the first time I saw her. The appeal grew the more I saw and learned of her. It may have more to do with #6 than I care to admit, but it goes far beyond that. She is worthy of admiration on many levels.

You could have dismissed option #7. Let's keep this thread clean

Haha. All the reasons, but you left out HER GAME! Nastya's, like, the finest tactician on tour, and one of the fastest players too. I like the girls who use their brains as one of the main weapons.

Good! Very good! One thing I like about her is the fact that against many opponents she has to rely on speed, tactics and a good game plan to win. In an era of big, strong power-players she is almost a throw-back. I often view her like David vs. Goliath when she plays. Nonetheless, she often gives players who often dominate their opponents with power fits because she's so tricky and quick. She forces many opponents to play her game instead of in their own comfort zone. Her record against the top 5 players is pretty damn good. (Spunky could probably tell you exactly what it is off the top of her head.)

I think Nastya is a very sympathic person who can be very self - confident - not only on court. She's a great player and - like all the russians - very beautiful. I like her, and I'll support her.

Great thread.

I love her for a number of reasons...

a) Her game style, the way she manovuers opponents from side to side with her flat and crisp groundstrokes = beauty
b) her look, how exotic, love her body language when she runs a point, like you can sense a bitchiness side of her which I love
c) She's a real nice girl off court
d) Love how she screams at her coach and throws her racket
e) Love how her career has been atypical of many Russians, she didn't realise raise her game until 2003 I think and she wasn't a teenager then.
