I call attention whore.

It's driving fans away from the game.

The WTA has already said that nothing will be done in this regard, all measures only affect future players which is the right thing to do. They would be crazy forcing two of the world's top players that have by far the most interesting rivalry right now to change.

It's how she plays and she would be absolutely crazy to change something that has gotten her to where she is now.
