This all depends on what u define as "arrogant". When Hingis was on the scene she was the most arrogant, but it was never seen as such, she was considered "fiesty". Jennifer was arrogant in many ways, but she was considered "Americas Bad Girl" so this was ok. Serena and Venus came on the scene with a lot of confidence and they were considered "arrogant" and a list of other names!(most of which can be found in threads on this board!) I think the most arrogant was Martina Hingis, and Jennifer Capriati, because their arrogance was blatant towards other players!

Hey at least all the Williams´s words become true. When Venus said Serena was gonna be her biggest rival....it became true. No.1 and no.2...true. When Serena said after ´01 that she was gonna go on the next level....it became true as well!

Mary is regal in her bearing - please don't mistake that for arrogance!

But I think six years in the Top Ten, plus two Grand Slam singles titles and 13 other tournament victories are very much 'the goods to match'!!!

Personally, I don't care if it what arrogant people say come true or not. Arrogance is very unattractive in a person.

I agree with Gangstabackhand's point about the Williams' being called arrogant when the other arrogant players were called "fiesty" and "america's bad girl". Those other players should have been called arrogant as well but it still doesn't take away from the fact that the Williams' are arrogant.

I think modesty is an underestimated quality these days!

Exacly, Mary isn't arogant at all. She is great actress, Her matches are often a big SHOWS. Her smile and behaviour on court are classics. Ballbuster don't say such stupid words just becouse you don't like Mary. :fiery: :fiery: :fiery: :fiery: :fiery: :fiery:

Venus, Serena and Hingis - Arrogance = Confidence.

Jennifer - Rude. Especially to the Sisters. That's

why Venus put her in her place at the USO.

Alex - Arrogant with nothng to back it up. Also rude.

Mary - was indeed regal.

Agree with Gangstabackhand.

Arrogance is just fine when you're a champion. Why should you have to hold back and down play your abilities just to make the losers feel better? It's a sport, get over it! There is nothing wrong with being good, knowing, and showing it. All champions have a little arrogance in them, whether they admit it or not. You have to believe you are the best to achieve the best. I personally never look for anyone to shower praise upon me when I achieve something. The accomplishment itself should be praise enough. You shouldn't need validation from others.

I think the most arrogant tennis players are:



Juju (Justine Henin-Hardenne)

Williams sister (Venus & Serena)

Jelena Dokic

Jennifer Capriati

Monica Seles

Kim Clijsters



It is because they always defeat my favorite tennis players - Mary Pierce & Anna Kournikova to destroy my good dreams!! :sad: :bigcry: :tears: :hysteric: :sobbing: :crying2: :( :mad: :fiery: :banghead: :shout:

Therefore I was became their hostile fans. :devil:

What do you think?

Capriati is well arrogant, a bit disrespectful to all the other players.

In former times I would have said Hingis but now I vote for Serena. I think, Venus is much nicer than Serena. Henin-Hardenne is a wanna be-arrogant!

bandabou
Oct 22nd, 2003, 04:19 PM
Funny to see that the two most "arrogant" players are the best players of their generation. I guess you need a certain arrogance to be a great champion.

That´s why Kim can´t win, no!!! Because she is TOO, TOO, TOO DANG nice!!

What do you think?

But what I think is, defeating your favourite player does not make them arrogant. You just find it hard to accept that your fave player lost to a better player, is it?

You are not serious but stupid as always !!! Pierce has won the last matches against Capriati and Dokic, Won last 3 matches against Seles. Played only once against Clijsters in this year's Filderstat semifinal and almost won first set thriller. So I am asking: WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT ????????????? Or maybe it is just the waste of time :rolleyes:

She actually never siad anything to me, but when i was at net being a ballboy for ehr match vs Frazier in Quebec city few years ago she was rude to other ballboys of my teams, the line judges (who actually were on her side and gave her lots of calls) and the umpire...

She was really rude all the times...Since then i don't especially like her...When she did a speech for the alst time here, everyone could feel that she was ssying " Im not coming back here, this tourney is too low for me"....And that is very rude adn useless!

Great thing that Venus always beat her :taped:

It's more than on court behaviour. It's an all around
thing. Hingis was arrogant on court; but she was nice
to fans and other players off court. Serena and Jenn
can be rude and arrogant on court; but they're both very
nice off court. When the camera's not around, they have
even been known to be sweeter!! lol.

I think the two most arrogant players are Anna K and
Venus. They don't give a rat's ass about the other
players. It's all about "me!!". Not really friendly to
other players off court, nor willing to give the time of
day to tennis fans at tournaments.

Hingis during the Australian Open final told Lindsay, do you want me to serve or to break you first?

It happened at USO SF '97 and it wasn't arrogant, Martina was joking and they were both laughing at it.
