Re: Why is Bouchard so hated?

The anst and anger over Genie's success is laughable. If she wins Wimby this board might explode!

Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett

I didn't even know she was hated, just hope she's not going to get blown away in the final by Petra.

yes, exactly-like a robot-emotionally flat.

Nobody in the men's top 10 apart from Fed is as cocky as Bouchard. Kyrgios is quickly getting a few haters as well.

But generally speaking you have a point.

What can a young,beautiful,talented girl get on the internet except hatred?

The world won't care about your self-esteem.The world will expect you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself.

So not true. My favorite players are Serena and Hantuchova (and everyone's a threat to Dani). I still like Ivanovic and she beat my faves and is also beautiful. So, no-it's not that she's a threat and pretty etc. She has no emotions-seems almost mean.

I like watching Bouchard play but it is not hard to see why some dislike her. And it has zero to do with results. If Bouchard had average results, people wouldn't like her more.

Gimme a break-guys that are arrogant are called out as arrogant, too. Arrogant is arrogant.

"Cocky" has too much of a negative connotation.
I would go with "self-assured" (or projection of an outward confidence that is unparalleled on the tour.)

She's the more arrogant less talented version of Sharapova.

Re: Why is Bouchard so hated?

I don't hate the chick, I don't know her to hate her. The hype around her, her personality and her game are all what make me not a fan of hers. She's like Sharapova only with a larger head, but less success.
