Yes, good for them.
The 3 people who, no matter what, I admire for how much they have spread the popularity of this sport.


Tennis needs a new superstar soon.

I'm not saying twitter/facebook "measures popularity" or anything but Wozniacki has 17,800 followers on twitter and 38,300 fans on facebook while Serena has 1,665,000 followers on twitter and Maria Sharapova has 2,145,700 fans on facebook.

So I still think that there is just a huge gap between these 3 players and the next in terms of popularity.

If Melanie Oudin was gorgeous and had big boobs, she would be super famous right now.

You said tennis needed a new superstar. If Maria, Venus and Serena were to retire this year, who would be left as the superstar of the tour?

Kim? She doesn't care about being a star.
JJ? People say she doesn't has "the look" and is too bitchy.:rolleyes:
Ana? She's in a slump of epic proportions.:tears:

Justine doesn't have any mass appeal whatsoever (imo), Vika hasn't had her big breakthrough yet, Dementieva won't be around for too much longer either, Sam will only be big in Australia, Franny in Italy, Aga not even in Poland, Pennetta hasn't done anything big either and Dinara's future is still a big question mark.

Caro is really the only one who is somewhat successful (not recently though) and has the looks to pull in some (bigger) sponsors.:shrug:

It's the most powerful, not the richest. They also measure things like press mentions, TV time and some other things.:)

One of the most interesting things in this top100 list: 3 WTA 1 ATP :eek:

Typical US list that confuses the USA with the world.

How can any top 100 list of this sort not contain any footballers (soccer stars to US)? Someone like Cristiano Ronaldo is much bigger than Serena Williams or any tennis player internationally. When I was in Egypt this summer, when I said where I was from, toilet attendants, Nile boatmen, whoever they were, would come out with the names of Premiership footballers to me. Now that is starpower!
