Welcome to TF Player Popularity Contest 2009! This is a series of threads where you vote for the player you like the most. It is very similar to Pick-Your-Winner, but different in that voting is not in tennis score format and voting is done in a vBulletin poll. The draw consists of the top 128 players of this week's rankings in real draw format with the top 32 being seeded.

It is also different from Pick-Your-Winner in that it is going to be held in General Messages, in front of a largely different group of people.

VOTING RULES
There are eight options in each poll, for four matches. You must pick one player from one match. You may pick one player from each of the four matches in the poll, or just the one player, as long as you do not pick both players from the one match (if you do, both of your votes for that match will be voided).

The first player to reach 35 votes from each match will progress through to the next round.

When a winner has been decided from all four matches, the next thread and section will begin.

This thread's matches and options are highlighted in red in the draw below.

CORNET, Alize FRA [ 20 - 35 ] [22] IVANOVIC, Ana SRB
[24] HANTUCHOVA, Daniela SVK [ 27 - 35 ] [25] LISICKI, Sabine GER

Sveta's lovely, yes... but beating Maria in a popularity contest is a joke. Maria only lost because she has a handful of haters as well, and I'd like to bet the majority of people who voted for Svetlana only did so because they didn't want to see Maria win. Anyway, rant over. Congrats Svetlana :lol:

I just can talk for myself. And I'd only vote Kim over Sveta...
It's a tennisforum contest with tennis fans as voters. I agree that Maria would win every "open" contest.

Sorry - I was just initially pissed. I hate seeing Maria lose (in any shape or form)... I'm gonna be voting for Svetlana to win now! Hehe

But isn´t the point of this whole popularitycontest that you have to deal with what´s in front of you?

You have players like maria who have loads of lovers as well as people that dislike her.

You have players like svetlana who don't have many lovers, but also not have many dislikers. She's a pretty neutral player.

So it's obviously a tricky match for maria, which is the whole point of this competition. She's just not the right player to win this contest, she has too many dislikers.

It's just a contest. :lol:

Maria usually wins popularity contests (usually ones where she doesn't have to go against anyone), so maybe it's also nice to see someone else win too. :D :shrug:

You mean sneeze?

Maria has the most fans on this forum, but she is also the 5th most hated player.
