Keys and Babos seem extroverted whereas Kuznetsova and Barthel seem more introverted.

Jesus Christ. All this talk about Pova's 'dry' and 'quick' sense of humour. I swear her fans have perpetuated this beyond any evidence at all.

The way you lot talk about her, you'd think she was Joan Rivers or Phyllis Diller or something.

First and foremost, I refuse to believe this is Apoleb. He was a refined troll with just the right amount of vile. This pest is just some wannabe Claycourter; obviously, it walked TF once before , however, it was so balantly redudant in its trolling that it is hard to say which former troll it actually is. Oh well, I cannot acknoweldge such nor deal with such peasantry anymore so I am putting it on IGNORE.

Hampton had a severe back injury which clearly caused her a lot of pain. In the on-court interview Vikaria was like 'I want a back injury to'(so that she can play like Hampton did) like the uneducated, tactless spawn of evil she is.

Yep. See Sheldon Cooper for an extreme example .

extroverted: Francesca Schiavone, Jankovic, Wozniacki, Petkovic
I would not call amg introverted. Shes not shy at all. Remember hopman cup 07 - she san happy birthday to a spectator infront of a while crowd. Even her hopman cup 2013 speech was her just being a smartass haha

Re: What players are socially awkward ? And extrovert/introvert ?

I am an introvert, I studied introversion and I can't believe that AnaIvanovic and Maria Sharapova are introverted.
We are about 5-7% of the total.
The one tennis player that I consider introverted is (was) Elena Dementieva.

Maria actually seems quite introverted but she's far from socially awkward.
