Me got to be Ana ivanovic and that stupid fist and leg pump after every point that she wins. Grrrrr i really was hoping Sloane Stephens was going to beat her last night.

I never liked how Azarenka behaves on the court. I just don't like people who are that "bitter looking" and with the nose up in the sky. She kinda started doing that this season and I liked her before :lol:
I like to watch Radwanska play, but I also don't like that she always looks so bored out there.

Ana's and Dominika's pomes, ajdes Idemos ETC. are OK as long as they come from inside. But then you have players like Azarenka, Sharapova and Kirilenko who look so FAKE on court and it seems like they say come on to simply annoy the opponent. I mean as you can see (more like hear) it also comes with the annoying and unbearable grunts/shrieks/squeaks...
Now I'm on a roll of 5 good reps, wonder how many bad reps I will get for this comment.

I don't mind intense players, but I will never understand why some feel the need to shout "C'MMMOOOONNN" (or some other form of encouragement) after every point. I mean, seriously, doesn't that take quite a bit of energy? It just comes off looking very contrived.

Sep 2nd, 2012, 09:31 PM
I nerver understood the COME ON thing either.
If you shout it after every point, it just show you're desperate.

When Federer or Clijsters do it, you know they meant it.

With that being said, Errani and Kirilenko are beyond annoying.
Especially Maria as she completely changed her attitude in the middle of her career. Fake, fake, fake.

Kerber post-match is also very ugly.

Have you ever played competitive tennis? Or any competitive sport? You don't say COME ON for no reason. People who do it to annoy their opponents are seriously disturbed. But saying come on, ajde, pome or whatever is a great way to encourage yourself...

Schiavone with all her come ons and her shaking her whole body at the crowd after winning a big point. I find her intensity contrived and done to outpsyche her opponent. I am sure she couldn't give a shit though.
Li Na when she goes into error mode and talking to herself etc
Azarenka with her grunting and how happy she is after a win which she just hindranced her way through.

People here like to say she's fake and she didn't grunt before. That's not true. Just search for any videos of her from 2006/2007. Maybe she didn't grunt as loud as she did before but she always has grunted. Please enlighten me on how she's fake.

Her whole "Look at me I'm intense" attitude is forced.
She can shrieks from three straight points, then be silent than pop a baby mid-rally then go silent again.

She does it to annoy the opponent, not to giver herself more power.

Forced? Fake? Watch this video. Kiri's always been gritty. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4njdyUwJ61g
And if you think not grunting all the time = fake you obviously don't play tennis yourself.

Sabine's "whole fake smiling attitude"? Dude what is your problem?! Just because you don't like someone you don't need to call them fake.

Look, Kirilenko can shriek on a drop shot.
I do play tennis and I know there's no need to make any sound while hitting a drop shot or a slice.

Lisicki can go to 5 years old smiling to sore loser in a split second. That's not hating, that's a fact.

She doesn't though. Her slice motion is not a normal motion; she uses two hands.
And believe it or not, some people don't like to lose. Sabine's probably the sweetest girl on tour.

Players who feel the need to constantly pump themselves up by screaming c'mon and fist pumping have always bothered me to an extreme.

-Bartoli's antics are insane and borderline disrespectful.

-Azarenka's need to extend her grunts and fist pumps during intense points or when she wins a match piss me off. TBH, her overall "better than everyone else" on court demeanor makes her appear so transparent and insecure. I Absolutely love her game and loved her when she broke onto the big scene beating Mauresmo at the AO, but this past year has seen a fan turn into a foe.

-Sharapova has a lot to be respected for and has a great career/empire but I have always thought that her grunting and her fist pumping have never been a way to pump herself up but rather to intimidate and belittle her opponent. She represents herself as an extremely arrogant woman and no one likes that.

-Wozniacki was the most abrasive and inhospitable player to watch when she was at her peak. The way she would fist pump and yell c'mon at all her opponents errors would make my skin peel. She definitely needed to stay hble while on court but instead chose to be annoying. Poor girl, karmas a bitch.

Others for less relevant reasons:

-Li Na (she comes off as extremely angry and ignorant)
-Sabine Lisicki (just...can't)
-Serena "Whiney" Williams (when she puts on her crying face and blasts 30 balls into tr net, makes you wonder what kid of drugs she's on)
-Sciavone (So rude and ignorant, simply cannot stand her)

Tried my best to be impartial hope it turned out well :wavey:

Sep 3rd, 2012, 09:08 AM
Have you ever played competitive tennis? Or any competitive sport? You don't say COME ON for no reason. People who do it to annoy their opponents are seriously disturbed. But saying come on, ajde, pome or whatever is a great way to encourage yourself...

The thing is if you have to encourage yourself every time you win a point it becomes really annoying. I mean do you say c'mon after you lose a point to encourage yourself? No? So it SHOULD be when you win a very important point that you just shout it, rather than 'oh I win a point let's scream'.

Fistpumping and "Come ons!" make me laugh the most when it's like 15-15 in the 2nd game or something :tape: There are a few guilty culprits.

No-one annoys me that much though. This is a sport with lots of "characters". None of us HAVE to watch it, so if things piss you off that much, why bother?

A lot of players do it, see Sharapova yesterday, shrieking "Come on" on every single unforced error to annoy Petrova. I think she would have won anyway by the way, but it helped a bit. Kiri is not half as bad (i.e loud) regarding this.

Most annoying player for me is Petkovic, screaming "Come on" directly in the face of her opponents every time, that is crossing the border to really unfair and unsportsmanlike behavior for me.

Different people different ways of pumping yourself. I did say idemo after losing a point. It's like saying to yourself, ok, ok, this was wasn't mine but the next one will be. Nothing wrong with that. You can't say to a player SHUT UP, your cmon's are annoying tennis watchers and your opponent. Why the fuck would a player care? They are on the court trying to win and nothing more.

I probably find Serena most annoying because she is just so damn good and beats all my favourites!! However, when I had the chance to see her play in the flesh in the Olympics, I was positively star struck!!

I find Azarenka's grunt pretty annoying, but equally Schiavoni's, Errani's, and any of the very noisy ones.

I find wozniacki's game annoying - just not that thrilling to watch, although I always found her likeable and she's a good ambassador for the game.

So NO ONE is that annoying -except for petulant bad losers but that's a whole other thread LOL!

Serena.

-Her play is boring, almost all serve and power shots.
-Yells too much.
-Pissy look on her face the entire match.
-Dresses too little for her size.

You're definitely stuck up, washed up & too old to watch the current generation of players, I suggest you go back to watching re-runs of "feel good" Graf matches in those awful "You Cannot Be Serious" Womens 80s Player outfits :wavey:

Pound 4 pound, SERENA>>>GRAF ...begin your rant & cry me a river ;)

There are so many, but these are the main ones -

Vika - A vile person with a horrible attitude. As fake as they come, one second telling a crowd to shut up the next thanking them for their support. Grinding game that has no wow factor. Horrible grunt that should have been dealt with as soon as she came on the tour.

Bartoli - looking like a demented drowned rat after 3 games of a match is usual for Marion. That look she constantly has on her face when playing like she wants to kill everyone. Having the most basic game ever, with absolutely nothing in it to change pace or the course of matches (hence her lopsided h2h's either way).

Ivanovic - the look of panic on her face is just laughable for someone who has a slam (though she fluked it) her stupid fistpumps. Her complete lack of personality off court. Her ball toss makes you pray for women's tennis.

Wozniacki - Basic in every way. From her special needs fist pump, to her downright plain game. Every close hawkeye or call she feels is against her and has her little strop over it. Her inability to influence the outcome of her matches. Her dad is just an added pain to anyone who watches WTA, with his on court 'coaching' rants and the look of 'my daughters a shit failure' he wears on his face court side when she is taking a beatdown.

Ugh my tennis channel on my tv was so messed up I couldn't see it but that's just disgraceful. Mona choked throughout that match so I'm guessing errani thought she did something special? It's like she can't accept the fact that she is outplayed.

I understand being gracious after a slam final, and she seemed like a nice girl on and off court, but when she lost to Bondarenko is den Bosch it's as if she hated the world. Slowly but surely I saw her when she lost its as if she didn't play well and her opponent "just happened to win."

I completely understand being upset after a loss, but the lack of respect most of the time is something I usually don't see in today's game.

A couple to add -

Errani - forehand is so ugly, basically spins in 1st serves as hasn't the ability to slice or hit it flat (imagine a top 10 player who cant slice a serve ffs), her grunt should see her get done for noise pollution, no one wants to see a player hit 0 winners in 2 sets. To add to all that she looks like the love child of Gail Platt (corrie) and E.T.

Niculescu - I cant decide if her face or tennis annoys me more, both should never be seen in public either way. Her slice forehand doesn't even have any bite, it just floats into court, she has zero power and can only win matches by turning them into a war of attrition that last 3 hours as she has no actual shots.

I do think she is conceited and has personality issues that are annoying. This is a separate observation from the state of her tennis game or who she beats.In all honesty, I find your point of view interesting because Serena's personality is what I'm drawn to. Champions with a meek or mild demeanor turn me off. That sort of non-emotional tepid attitude that most of the posters here prefer is just so boring to me. And I've found that what many call conceit or arrogance, I call 'confidence'. I know that many French people confuse confidence with arrogance when referring to any American player, so using that example, I choose to chalk it up as a cultural difference.

Moreover, if Serena didn't present such a stark attitude, I doubt that she'd be as effective on court.
Many of the most dominant and influential athletes throughout history maintain the same swagger, and so it isn't surprising that Serena would be no different.

Much respect to you though for clarifying. :)
The vast majority of posters on this board who have an issue with Serena are far more obtuse when explaining the reason, and overt when denigrating her.
Just hang around for a bit and you'll quickly see what I mean.

Well said. I still don't understand how you can "hate" a tennis player (except Errani :oh: ). I was really happy for Serena when she beat Petra, and I loved to see her reaction after the match, even if I wanted Petra to win.

pretty sure Mrs Mouratoglou's list would start with Serena or RVD does having an affair with someone's husband the American version for 'confidence'?

In all honesty, I find your point of view interesting because Serena's personality is what I'm drawn to. Champions with a meek or mild demeanor turn me off. That sort of non-emotional tepid attitude that most of the posters here prefer is just so boring to me. And I've found that what many call conceit or arrogance, I call 'confidence'.

I am as well drawn to confidence and strong competitive spirit. I may be opening up a new can of worms here, but let's compare Federer and Serena.

No doubt, they are both elite players. In my opinion, Roger has a relaxed attitude and burn to win. He has confidence and walks with poise. When a point or call doesn't go his way, he usually moves on after a decision has been made. With a few exceptions, he rarely makes inappropriate comments on the court. He has a CONFIDENCE about his game WITHOUT ARROGANCE.

In my opinion, Serena lacks all of the above, especially when she loses. I would much rather my child emulate the character and behavior of Roger than Serena.

Thanks for the welcome too!:)

Serena is pretty annoying. She thinks she owns the world and it should bow at her feet.

seconded...by far the most annoying broad out there. No contest here really

This, and Bartoli

No wonder most takes pride in contributing **cough bye bitch gifs etc. cough** to Martha's yet another loss threads whenever she faces Sarin.

Hmmmmmm?I have no idea what you're talking about. :)
People break up all the time.
I was still married (on paper) when I took a business colleague out for lunch...and a year later married her.
If there were no marital problems, Serena wouldn't be with him, and Patrick wouldn't be her.
Sometimes, we tend to overlook the obvious. ;)
My opinion, of course. :angel:

Thanks for the welcome too!:)Not so sure that Roger is the best representative here. :lol:
He has certainly made arrogant and downright rude comments and statements.
(Most recent: )http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/05/roger-federer-shut-up-french-open-del-potro_n_1571307.html
And there were several other scenes that were even posted in this forum.
Or maybe you mean comments directed at players?
At any rate, Serena has not been well-received by any means. From the very moment she turned pro, she was denigrated in so many ways across the board. All of the overt bad officiating, claims of fixing matches, being called racial epithets...
Part of that had to do with her connection to a dad...and even to Venus (Remember Indian Wells). So anyone would take on a protective stance to defend themselves.

I think Roger gets a pass because he's a much better actor. :)
But he most certainly comes off as arrogant and smug, in my opinion. To the point where I can't even watch the guy play.
I was carrying on a PM'ing conversation with a poster here who lives in Switzerland and who informed me on just how very smug, arrogant, and conceited Roger is and can get. I discovered that he even walks over his own Davis Cup (?) teammates just to garner positive press and sympathy.
But I won't slam the guy any further.

That sort of non-emotional tepid attitude that most of the posters here prefer is just so boring to me. And I've found that what many call conceit or arrogance, I call 'confidence'. I know that many French people confuse confidence with arrogance when referring to any American player, so using that example, I choose to chalk it up as a cultural difference.

Moreover, if Serena didn't present such a stark attitude, I doubt that she'd be as effective on court.
Many of the most dominant and influential athletes throughout history maintain the same swagger, and so it isn't surprising that Serena would be no different.

Much respect to you though for clarifying. :)
The vast majority of posters on this board who have an issue with Serena are far more obtuse when explaining the reason, and overt when denigrating her.
Just hang around for a bit and you'll quickly see what I mean.

I second that. Also sometimes when people attack others character seems like they are just trying to look for any thing to hate them. Im sure you could pick off about anything from about anyone to hate. Anyway well said.

But I do like her saying words to her opponents after the match.

Obviously it's easier to be classy in victory, but I never feel like Serena overdoes it when she wins. It's always nice to see her applaud her opponents (during and especially after matches). And I might be in the minority, but I'm liking her attitude in defeat more and more. She maintains perspective, usually compliments her opponent in some way, and immediately looks forward to her next big event. IMO that's how a player should act after a loss.

Sometimes I wonder if people are confusing the past Serena with the present Serena.
And even the past Serena complimented her opponents. Just not as often as the present Serena. :devil:
If people are waiting for Serena to bow down and kowtow to the establishment, they should first bet on a winter storm in Hell before that happens.
GO SERENA!

It's not her "pushing." It's not her "KAMAN!'s." It's not all the PDA pics with Rory (even though that is pretty annoying.)

It's things like "I lost motivation at #1." It's the "new coach wants me to try new things, I don't like that" (paraphrased) It's her complacency in the face of adversity. It's a pusher who doesn't really push when she should, to be better and can be a better tennis player.

Yes my fave's ass is constantly spaned by the Lawd, but she takes her to 3 sets and wins loads more games ... She's never ever only won 3 games per match or even 1 per match unlike your fave. :help:

There's always been a match between Petra and the Lawd, which is more than you can say there is between the Lawd and Maria ... that's more of a ... well ... erm ... humiliation :ignore:

Eww I have a hard time with Federer. His attitude is awful after a loss. He explains it he didn't play his best. After the millionth time Nadal beat him and he pulled his I didn't play my best people started catching on to the fact he is getting old and the excuses flow. I prefer my children to emulate serena than the excuse driven roger Federer.
