This!

Opening a least favourite player poll thread is asking *or wanting for some people* for the bashing of certain players.

Re: Who is your favorite Top 10 player of 2012 season?

I'll always stick to my fave, Masha finally won another slam + completed a career slam and had one of her most consistent years on tour to date
But ofc I can acknowledge Vika's spectacular year and Rena's second half sweep. Well done to the top 10 in general

At least I can say that my faves have amazing and loyal faves even if their results haven't been great since 2008.
Many of Caroline's fans stay mainly in her own forum. GM is not exactly "caro-friendly" and it's not everyone who is willing to read wave after wave of hateful comments. Add to that some bandwagoners (20-30%?)and a handful of trolls who were banned. But I would say that most of her fans are loyals.

Kvitova, well, success comes with bandwagoners. You don't build a real base of fans in 12 months. I was sure that most of her "fans" would disappear as soon as she would encounter difficult times. Don't worry, they'll be back if she wins another Major. I guess that her result last year was also inflated by Serena's fans: last year they couldn't vote for her since she wasn't in the Top10.

You forgot Stosur: she was almost leading the poll last year, propelled by her US Open title. Most of her "new fans" are gone this year.

OTOH, Radwanska has appr. the same percentage of votes than last year.

Re: Who is your favorite Top 10 player of 2012 season?

I think you'll find that most of those who voted for Sam last year haven't yet voted this year. At a quick glance only a handful at most have shifted their preferences to another player. Sam actually has a very loyal fanbase, most of whom avoid GM like the plague. A lot made an exception last year after her USO win.

I haven't looked closely but I think something similar probably applies to Petra. There was definitely more of a bandwagon effect in her case, but I get the impression she's still reasonably popular. It's just that her fans don't frequent GM as much as those of some other players.

1. Caro
2. Aga
In those difficult times we find out who's a real fan and who was just a bandwagoner!

I'm suggesting that the number of those was really high (when I joined this board, there were so many Caro's fans that disappeared in a meanwhile), I'm not saying that she doesn't have loyal fans, but I feel that there are too many of those who stopped posting after January. By the way, Petra was ranked very high in that Sexysova's contest in the end of last year, so I doubt that she won this just because Serena's fans voted for her, it was a bandwagon.

Well, there were quite a few haters who posed as fans and made predictions about winning slams all over the place and other exaggerated claims of greatness in the hope of turning TF against her even more than it already is and making us "delussional Carotards" look like idiots in the process.

I voted Petra too. Her 2012 wasn't as illustrious as her 2011, but she had some good showings. I love watching the highlights against Hantuchova at Sydney this year. She also made a major improvement in the lead up to the USO, and hopefully she can make the QFs for the first time next year at the USO.

SFs at the Australian Open, SFs at the French Open and QF at Wimbledon were all good showings to. She might've gotten lucky with some draws, but thats tennis. Unable to defend her YEC crown, but a Fed Cup win was a nice way to end the year.
