Maria is a living goddess and she is worshiped in all world with minor exceptions in losers that are in denial of her deity.

This! Also, a lot of people on the tennis forum may dislike her but most of the internet is full of trash talking people. I think the general public does like her. The companies that pay her millions of dollars in endorsement money seems to think so!

And yet if Serena was there,they'd be cheering her on to get another slam. How does Genie get so many supporters? She's not even that good looking IMO and has done nothing of note yet. When she first came on the tour I thought "Good,here's another Maria to follow when she retires" but she's starting to really bug me now,mainly her fans who hype her up to insane levels. Make no mistake,there's no one worse for Maria to lose to at this point than Genie. Anyway,what do you think it is about Maria that pisses so many people off?
I like Genie. She's young and has made back to back slam semi's. She has a good game and very good looks. You complain about the hype for her but that's normal. Pova got alot more hype when she was starting out. That's part of the reason alot of people don't like Maria. She's also beautiful, tall, intimidating and very wealthy. Oh and the loud grunting too. She was also a threat on and off the court to Serena back in 04 and 05 and many thought that was not right.

Re: Why Do So Many People Dislike Maria?

Maria was old enough to buy beer by the time she won her third grand slam in 2008. Not sure just how she celebrated winning Wimbledon in 2004, and us open in 2006.

How many players in the history of tennis won two grand slam champion ships while they were still teenagers?
Did Maria get a lot of media attention early in her career? Guilty as charged.
It was more than just the bikini thing for si. That did not hurt.....she did not exactly look bad in those photos.

Re: Why Do So Many People Dislike Maria?

I'm not too disturbed by the "not liking", what bothers me is when people want to minimize what Maria has achieved and the lack of respect.

I have never liked Ayrton Senna or Diego Maradona but will never say they were not great champions. I have never liked Bob Marley or Nirvana, but there is no question they have been icons of modern music.

Maria has achieved something that only a few women players have achieved in Tennis. She can still achieve more. She will be in the Sport's Hall of Fame. Nobody can take that away.
And, if that's not enough, she's drop-dead-gorgeous, naturally elegant, intelligent, smart, with an enormous amount of charisma. She is and will continue to be an icon well beyond tennis.
The next woman that can combine all this is yet to be conceived. The attempts to market Bouchard (whom, by the way, I quite like) as the next Maria are simply laughable.

Probably, some people can't cope with that. Too bad for them.

As big a fan as I am, I have to say I still find the screeching disturbing, insane. So I can understand why someone indifferent in the beginning would easily turn into a hater.

There were also circumstances where I disapproved of her lack of empathy (the Golovin injury thing, for example).

Having said that, the hating is too often going over-the-top, in an almost pathological way.

Re: Why Do So Many People Dislike Maria?

Part of the hatred for her screeching might stem from the fact that if.......there was anything the officials in charge of tennis could do about it.......they would not. Maria is that valuable to the current existence of womens' tennis.
