Okay, so that John Wertheim bit posted on why isn't Elena more popular got me thinking. Given her dismal (5-11) record in finals, the fact she has yet to win a major title, her introverted personality and, yes, the serve, maybe the real question is why is she so popular? And why does she have such die-hard fans? (Well, my brain has to do something when she's not playing.)

I know I jumped on the bandwagon in 2000, thinking I was getting in on the next big thing in tennis. But I haven't ever jumped off. Why do you love Elena (multiple choice is allowed, if I did this right.)

I must say I admire Lena...she is wonderful person...in all she does...she deserves a GS...and even if she doesn't get one I'll still apreciate her.,..wonderful people are rare these days and when you see one that is so friendly and modest you just have to thank God the world is not crowded with fools...Lena is a special person !! She deserves loyal fans and that's what we are ...

I picked them all cause they're just the components that make her my favorite, and I can't explain why I love her so much.

I absolutely admire Lena, especially her personality. I like that she is introverted and doesn't want to stay in the focus of every TV cam like Sharapova. Lena is a bit shy I think but I like this aspect of her personality. And I like that she never gives up, she is always fighting in every situation of a match. REMARKABLE!

Yeah, all of the above is a good answer. I had an even longer list, but the poll only included a maximum of 10 choices, so I went with some of the reasons I'd sort of picked up from being part of this forum.

I tried to narrow it down to just my main reasons when I voted, but there's definitely a lot to like about ED.

I voted for her incredible forehand, her never say die attitude, and her attractivness. Those three reasons are my main attraction to Lena as a tennis player.

Hard to explain... bit of everything I guess.

She's funny, smart, nice, attractive, and I guess I support her because she also has some flaws. The fact that she can win or lose any match has some appeal for me. Supporting a predictable player who you can guarantee will make at least the quarters of every tournament they play in doesn't interest me that much.

I think the all of the above is the best option, she's such an exellent person; althougth I don't know her face to face; she seems to be it on everything she does. She is not dishonest, she is so true to herself, inteligent, and loyal to her thoughts. A very sweet, caring, kind, polite person. And that charming smile... Pleasant eyes...
So physically strong and sexiness in perfect harmony...

All of them except the sympathy vote. Serving is the only thing I do well :o

And the fact that she beats all my least favorites when it really counts (most of the time)

I really don't know how to explain it. All I know is that there are very few people who have a little something extra about them that make them very likeable and approachable.

Exactly...it must be called charisma ... but she really has "that" something...you just can't like her...:D

It is impossible to pick only one reason. Any person can have one good thing about them, not everybody can have this entire list
