53.19% think Kim Clijsters is annoying!

from www.amiannoying.com
(ok I was bored )

http://www.amiannoying.com/view.aspx?ID=10399

Tennis Star

The Resume
(June 8, 1983- )
Born in Bilzen, Belgium
Resides in Bree, Belgium
French Open Finalist (2003)
US Open Finalist (2003)
Australian Open Finalist (2003)
French Open Juniors doubles champ (1998)

Why she might be annoying
She loses concentration during matches. She blows big leads.
She has frizzy hair.
Her representatives have implied that Henin-Hardenne had 'bulked up her waif-like physique by doping.' They later apologized.
She appeared in three grand slam finals losing each time to Justine Henin-Hardenne.
She keeps an open diary on her web site.

Why she might not be annoying
She will play hurt.
Her trademark is the extreme splits she does to get to the ball, which she refers to as 'a straddle.'
She is of Dutch heritage and learned French to befriend her fellow Belgium player Justine Henin-Hardenne.
During her junior days, she roomed with Henin-Hardenne and said they are good friends. However, when Henin-Hardenne was asked if their relationship had broken up, she snidely said 'nothing's been broken, because there was nothing to break.'
She has a warm personality and is a fan favorite.
She became a fan favorite at the Australian Open after her engagement to Australian tennis star Lleyton Hewitt.
Her father played pro soccer and mom is a gymnast.
Her mom, Els, was diagnosed with cancer.
Her father, Lei, was Belgium's 1988 Soccer Player of the Year.
She loves pizza, but will not eat the crust.
As a kid, she hung Steffi Graf posters on her wall.
She finds New York and London the best for plays and shopping.

As ever, Kim beats Justine in the polls! On the same site, 54.1% found Justine annoying:

Why she might be annoying
  • Her last names are pronounced N.R.-R.Den.
    She has small breasts, slender hips, wears no makeup and has hair tucked into a baseball cap, unintentionally disguising herself as a teenage boy.
    During her 2003 semi-final French Open match with Serena Williams, she put her hand up to ask for time. Serena observing this, hindered her serve causing a double fault. Hennin-Hardenne uncharacteristicly ignored tennis etiquette and good sportsmanship and did not acknowledge that she caused Williams' double fault and it stood.
    As a superstition, she steps over the tennis lines between points.

Patiently waiting to join the silver surfers

Serena didn't doublefault did she?

Btw Kim's final at RG in 2001 isn't mentioned, nor are her grand slam doubles titles
I's a funny website though

Here's Lleyton's page
http://www.amiannoying.com/view.aspx?ID=8254

Lleyton Hewitt
Tennis Ace

The Resume
(February 24, 1981- )
Born in Adelaide, Australia
Won U.S. Open Singles Championship (2001)
Won Wimbledon Singles Championship (2002)
Year-End Number One in Singles (2001, '02)
Won Davis Cup (1999)

Why he might be annoying
He failed to show for an interview with ESPN at the 2002 Tennis Master Series (Cincinnati) and the ATP Tour issued to him a fine for half of the money he earned at that tournament ($105,650). He appealed the fine, and it was reduced to $20,000 (January 2003).
After failed attempts to rescind the fine, Hewitt threatened to sue the ATP Tour for $1.5 million, claiming the ATP defamed him in media statements and breached their contract with him (April 2003).
Due to his rocky relationship with the ATP, he has lent financial and moral support to a breakaway tennis faction, the IMTA.
During his match against James Blake, he claimed that a black linesman made bad calls against him, because both the linesman and his opponent were black (September 2001).
While playing, he wears his cap backwards (what's the point?).
He angers other players when he pumps his fist after opponent errors.
His fans call him 'the Potato' and when someone beats him, his haters referred to that player as 'the Potato Peeler.'

Why he might not be annoying
He's dating Kim Clijsters (a.k.a. the Potatoette ), a top player on the women's tour.
He performs charity work for the Special Olympics.
He's considered the fastest and most fierce competitor on the ATP Tour.
He was the second man (the first being Marat Safin) to defeat Pete Sampras in straight sets in a major final (2001 U.S. Open).
Despite his tough schedule, he takes time to represent Australia in Olympic and Davis Cup competition.

Do people really call Kim the Potatoette? Never heard that one!

I'm moderately annoying

Quiz Results
Points: 39

You have been classified as "moderately annoying". Although this is nothing to be concerned about, our experts believe that there's still room for improvement.

hihi and look at my result of the quizz...
Bravo for being open minded and personable, but you often make dumb decisions in areas that you know little about. Although your improvising skills are weak, you deserve respect for your benevolence and occasional common sense. "The secret to not being annoying is the balance between courtesy and certitude," says Team Annoy tech guy, Keith. "You may have the desire to be kind, but you never let it shadow your ambitions." Being Partially Annoying may be something to be proud of if you care for sub par results, but Team Annoy suggests that you work harder to achieve a less annoying status.
