Hi all,

off-season is here again = boring days for all tennis fans. As I said I would like to do this every year to see which player has more and more or less and less fans/haters!

If you like popularity contests, you might like our Pick Your Winner game which is run throughout the season. PYW had a very successful comeback this year and we are looking forward to the next season! You can find all info in the PYW forum. If you have any questions, PM me.


RULES

- You have to list at least 5 favourites + 5 players you hate/dislike/are indifferent to the most. If you post less players then your vote won't be counted! If you list more than 10, only first ten of each list will be counted.

- Do not insults any players, otherwise your list won't be counted!

- Nicknames, pictures of players won't be counted, I need last names (+ First names when there are more players with the same last name. If you do not mention the first name, I will take the most relevant player with such last name).

- Only players who played this year will be counted. So do not post retired players who didn't play this year. Doubles specialists (e.g. Peschke) count as well.

- To be able to vote you must have at least 100 posts when the deadline is over. Anyone who joins this forum from today and further is not able to vote.

- To change the lists, please create a new post which includes quotation of your previous list and the new list.


VOTING DEADLINE

- December 24 at 23:59 CET.

- Results will be posted till the end of 2019.

Honourable mentions: Angelique Kerber (would have been in this list if not for the youngsters, plus her play this year hasn't really inspired me); Victoria Azarenka, Iga Świątek (I feel like her game still has some room to grow, she'll be in this list soon), Belinda Bencic (would have been in the top 10 if she had a better on court attitude most of the times), Jelena Ostapenko.

1. Bianca Andreescu. The versatile game, the attitude, just awesome girl.
2. Kiki Bertens. Best female Dutch player of all time, such a fighter and a joy to watch on clay.
3. Petra Kvitova. Petra the Mighty, still going strong.
4. Victoria Azarenka. Her quality still shines through sometimes but her mental fortitude has declined.
5. Timea Bacsinszky. So much creativity. I haven't forgotten about her despite the long injury time out.
6. Belinda Bencic. That flowing super fast offensive game. Happy to see her in the top 10 again.
7. Ashleigh Barty. What can't she do? Such a complete game and elegant footwork.
8. Sofia Kenin. Such a strong and feisty attitude, she brings so much intensity to every match. Clean groundstrokes.
9. Anastasija Sevastova. Very elegant game but a chaotic mind.
10. Simona Halep. She is everywhere on court and can make any match into a battle.

:weirdo:

1. Elina Svitolina. Seems like a very nice and cool person, unfortunately I hate her boring pushing game so much.
2. Maria Sharapova. Cocky former doper.
3. Dayana Yastremska. Overrated ballbasher.
4. Alison Riske. Everything about her annoys me, especially that husky moan.
5. Katerina Siniakova. Laborious ugly looking game.
6. Marketa Vondrousova. Such a bore.
7. Elise Mertens. Another huge bore.
8. Aryna Sabalenka. BBB.
9. Daria Gavrilova. Annoying little pusher, good thing she is irrelevant now.
10. Monica Niculescu. Slice can be beautiful but not as a technique to bring the match in a coma.

Folks, make sure you read the rules before posting.

One thing is to say I don't like this player's game or strokes or attitude ... it's a different thing to go after their looks or body in a despective manner.

Thank you.
