Re: Why is Bouchard so hated?

I don't hate her at all. I don't hate any player to be honest. But I think I dislike others more than Bouchard.

I'm a Halep fan and I like both Bouchard and Radwanska.

Re: Why is Bouchard so hated?

I think to some, her outward confidence is a major turn off.
They can't reconcile how such a sweet girl can be so firm and confident in how she feel can carry herself.

Her interview responses are direct and to the point, hitting the same theme.
ESPN thought she would walk back her comment about having no interest in making friends on the tour.
But she stuck to he exact original statement and its meaning and gave a mature explanation why.

She does not giggle and show hesitation as sign of vulnerability (that some fans would prefer her to show to make herself more adorable in their eyes)
Some would say she is harsh, but if that serves her well in her tennis career, then more power to her

Modesty is apparently appreciated here.
This is just a latent form of sexism, IMO. If a male tennis player says "I work hard and expected this win from myself", like Dimitrov did yesterday, no one bats an eyelash. He's just being a regular "confident" guy.

But a woman saying the same thing? Suddenly she's conceited and arrogant. Society still expects women to be modest dolls who just sit there and look pretty.

On a more general note... I just can't identify with Bouchard. She has a very nice game, but emotionally, I can't connect with her. She reminds me of a robot, no emotions at all. With Sharapova, I feel she's still a human being, but Genie? Don't know about her, she just seems way too mature in a way. I know it's good for her results, but still...
For other players, I can still see the FUN that they have competing. As for Bouchard, I sometimes like she is not even playing for herself, but for someone else. It's strange to explain, but that's what I feel when watching her.

Over-confident might also be a good word to describe it. It's good for her confidence on the court that she believes in herself, but her press conferences sometimes sound like she is not a single bit surprised about her results this year. That's quite hard to believe. Simona, in opposition, is way more down-to-earth. She said she believed she can be at the top, but never expected to have a stunning year like she had. I just think that's a better way to communicate.
Just after the match, she still insisted she wasn't surprised she made 3 SFs this year. How could you not? You weren't even a top 30 last year.

Re: Why is Bouchard so hated?

turn her back on her native Canada for cash in order to play Hong Kong

cold personality

tried to steal Maria's boyfriend

viewed as XWTA Golden girl by Stacy since they are both from Canada, asked to promote Singapore in January when it seemed like she had no chance to qualify

got to SF of 3 Grand Slams using cakewalk draws

is that enough reasons for you

Because she's beautiful, famous, plays great at tennis and rich.

Because of idiotic comments/posters like those.

Re: Why is Bouchard so hated?

"full of herself and a bit overconfident" And this attitude has got her into two semis and a final of Grand Slams in a single year, if she didn't have this attitude then the hate would be "Theres too much hype and she'll only flop"

The real reason is that shes a big threat and people can't stand to see their favourites coming under threat and the attention she gets over everyone else.

Because a huge part of sport is the psychology. It's not just about working on your strokes. It's about working on your mind and convincing yourself that you deserve and earn your results. If you view your results as flukes or surprises, you're not going to believe that they are coming from your game. And that could be disastrous when put in tight positions.

She's said before that she spends a lot of time working on the psychological aspect of the game, and you very much see that in how she responds to interview questions.
