View Full Version : Players' Whose Popularity On WTAWorld Is Least Correlated To Their Accomplishments ??

so in a perfect world, the player on the tour that has accomplished the most (S Williams) should have the most number of fans, followed by the player on tour that has accomplished the 2nd most etc. all the way down to the player that has accomplished the least (Brie Whitehead and other bagel girls) should have the least number of fans.

but obviously that is not the case on this site. for example, it has been shown from several popularity contests that Mary Pierce is the most popular (instead of S Williams). Elena Dementieva, Ana Ivanovic, Tatiana Golovin's fan bases relatively exceed their accomplishments. While Nadia Petrova's popularity grossly lag her accomplishments.

what are the reasons for this? It could be something very simple - Latisha Chan's popularity was boosted after her English name was revealed. obviously beauty helps the case of players like Dementieva, Ivanovic and Golovin and dosen't for Petrova / Kuznetsova etc. In Petrova's case, her attitude on the court doesn't help her cause.

IMO players whose popularity exceed their accomplishments:

1 Dementieva
2 Golovin
3 Ivanovic
4 Hantuchova
5 Chan
6 Whitehead

IMO players whose popularity underestimate their accomplishments:

1 Petrova (she has a total of 5 fans on this board)
2 Henin (she should have many more fans)
3 Kuznetsova
4 Mauresmo



name some other players whose following here far exceed / underestimate their accomplishments ... what are the reasons?

i think its kind of unfair to list golovin and ivanovic there because they are like the future of womens tennis and many people are expecting a lot from them so maybe they do deserve their fanbases (lol yes i know im being biased but yeh)
and as for mauresmo...SHE HAS TONS OF FANS!!! she has more than golovin nd i dno about pierce but she has sooo many fans!

believe me venus and serena have fans world wide,the most popular players in usa are venus and serena not pova or nicole.they are supported by people of all races.serena might not win because she annihilates favourites of many.
if you are as accomplished as serena is ,there are going to be rabid haters.
a friend in our dorm couldnt eat before the australian final because she was so nervous serena would lose.

Is it not possible to be a fan of more than one player?
People on this board seem to think liking Justine and Serena (for example) is mutually exclusive.
Some of us admire players for their skill and achievement; not just because they look nice.

We've been over why Petrova doesn't have fans. Besides, she hasn't even been close to winning a Slam so I don't really see how her "popularity underestimates her accomplishments." Who really cares about bullshit tier I clay titles?

Amelie has quite a lot of fans.

Good thread, and you're mostly spot on these lists.

I feel that Mauresmo has a relatively large and devoted fanbase (in the sense that it's visible on GM), though.

Safina on the other hand is top 10 yet has no fans whatsoever and nobody gives a flying fuck about her.

I always thought that, considering her huge successes and being such an approachable and appealing character (though this is disputed), Clijsters should be among the 2-3 most popular players on this board, and she isn't.

Also, Vaidisova has a considerably smaller fanbase than the contemporaries she's usually lumped with, Ivanovic and Golovin.

It's not only their accomplishments that determine, or even should determine how popular a player is. It also has to do with their personality, how they look, the type of tennis they play and sometimes their nationality. If the only important thing for having a large number of fans would be how good a player is The Williams' sisters popularity would go up and down like a yoyo together with their ranking on the computer, Capriati would have lost all of her fans during "the lost years" and Martina Hingis would lose a bunch of fans with each new disappointing loss. Under such a scenario those fans wouldn't really be fans at all but opportunists. If you really are a fan you stick with your faves through the good and the bad days.

I agree. Basically: if you're hot and in the top 20/30, you'll have a decent fanbase.

If you're ugly and in the top 20/30, you'll have a small fanbase.

Naturally, you'll get exceptions but there'll usually be logical explanations for them. You could have a really popular player (on the tour) like Davenport who was at the top of the game for over 10 years with a great game and personality (off court:p) but..... no looks. :tape:

Capriati and Mauresmo were/are both popular - Capriati had her fairytale comeback/was a teen prodigy yada yada, had tons of charisma and won 3 Slams in 2 years. Amelie has a gorgeous game, and has been the top Frenchwoman since like forever now, plus 2 recent Slams... but she was still pretty popular before then. I think.

Utterly, completely agree. There's a phenomenon that describes rooting for a player only because they win--it's called being a frontrunner. Or a band wagoner.

Yes, when I became a ED fan I thought she'd have won a slam by now. But I'm not going to give up on her if she doesn't.

For the record, I don't think Lena's fanbase is as big as it is deep.

there are a lot. but that is just the nature of the sport and humanity. the best aren't always going to be the most popular - especially on a site like this. I doubt Dementieva etc aren't anywhere nearly as popular with casual tennis fans.

Someone like Na Li is a good example. I don't think her popularity stems from anything remarkable about her game. more that she's kind of the first Chinese player to achieve noteable results and she's a bit against the mould of what most people expect from Chinese athletes.

Although I like Chaky, I get the feeling she can be kind of a...what's the word...snot? She pouts a lot on court and doesn't seem to be the most outgoing person off court. She also hasn't been playing at a top 10 level for that long, and wasn't one of those really hyped prodigies like Ivanovic or Vaidisova, so it may take some time and results with her.

I think Amelie has a tons of fans but it does seem like she could even have more. I just don't see how anyone could dislike her or her game, but that's just me I guess.

Stevenson and Dokic -- easily!

But on a more serious note, Hantuchova and Dementieva have way too many fans considering their success, struggles, and apparent malaise on the court and with their form.

Players who are lacking fanbases are definitely Amelie Mauresmo, Dinara Safina, and Justine Henin. With so many Sharapova and Williams fans, Justine is often forgotten and often ignored in many discussions. However, Justine has been the most complete, efficient, and healthy player the past few years. Much better than I Can't Serveapova, Venus I can't win Williams, and Screaming I love food Serena Williams.

Then obviously Margaret Court Smith would be the most popular player in the history of women's tennis.

I suspect, as we all know, that other factors go into the popularity equation.

Little Amanda Coetzer was very popular, yet never got past a slam semi-final in her entire career.

On the other hand, Ivan Lendl was a number one player who won a slew of grand slam titles and not many people liked him.

Then there was John McEnroe, who continues to infuriate people until this very day. For awhile during his active career, he was practically the "man you love to hate." His on court behavior was so vile at times that even American crowds pulled for almost anyone playing against him.

Actually, by the logic of the person who started this thread, you can argue that Elena's popularity is just where it should be. She's been in the Top 10 for years (only injury knocked her out last month) so she should be one of the 10 most popular players.

Now, if I were to guess, I'd say that TOB, both WS, Kim, Dani and Linds easily have more fans on the board. I'd guess that Momo, JuJu and Hingis have about the same number. So it terms of popularity, I'd say at best she's somewhere between #5 and #10.

Which is where she's been ranked for ages.

Yes, i mean anyone with 2 slam finals deserves to have a pretty healthy fanbase, and i don't think that she has a majority of fans on the board either

I doubt Dementieva etc aren't anywhere nearly as popular with casual tennis fans.

Dementieva is immensely popular with the people who care enough about tennis to log on to websites and message boards about it.

And among Portuguese fans - at the LusoTénis forum, Dementieva is the most popular foreign player by far, and at the Lena D. official website forum, two of the most active posters are Portuguese.

Among casual fans I'm not so sure. I did an informal survey some time ago and Sharapova was way ahead of anyone else, only Hingis and to a lesser extent Clijsters even registering.

It seems Clijsters is very popular among casual tournament goers.

So again I don't think that WTAW is representative of tennis fans as a whole.

Vaidisova

boring game, awful personality and overated look

i think she is stunning, got a great game to watch - such heavy strokes and a great personaily... she's always a laugh in the interviews...
