The hype and buzz around Anna was HUGE. I've never felt quite the same excitement over Maria, even though she's been far more successful on court. Just my interpretation of it.

I'm not saying the French crowd is the be all and end all of judging but if you can win over the harshest GS crowd in the world then that's a very good indicator of your popularity.
That's exactly what you're saying

Re: Who was more popular in their prime, Kournikova or Sharapova?

Kournikova by far. She was actually sexy. Every guy i knew wanted to bang her. Sharapova is more for gays. She has model looks, meaning she only looks good in tons of make up and photographed well. Anna K. was just a natural sex-appeal machine.

See the throngs of boys and men at Anna's practices and matches for proof.

Not even close on this one.

i have no doubt that kournikova would have won a slam or two minimum in this generation......she just couldn't take the amount of diversity and instead started focusing on fashion......

p.s. nadal is the only one in the history of men's tennis with at least two grandslams on each surface - clay, grass and hardcourts......so that somehow makes me believe that he could have possible won at least one slam on all three surfaces in the 90s......no chance for federer or djokovic.......
