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.

Now you can vote in BJK Cup to try how the game works PYW Billie Jean King Cup 2021 | First Round | Quarter #1...

You can find all info in the PYW forum, we have rankings, roll of honour, list of previous finals and other stats. 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 insult 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 or active players will be counted (e.g. Andreescu counts). 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 25 at 23:59 CET.

- Results will be posted till the end of 2021.

Favourites

1. Andreescu....always be #1 in my book, super talent, super variety, super mentality
2. Fernandez....always be #2 in my book, like everything about her game
3. Barty......#1 player, classy girl, has all the ingredients of a champ
4. Raducanu....Cinderella lives, love her game and gotta support the "Canucks" ;)
5. Sabalenka....love watching her, most entertaining player., goes for winners 100%...and she's super hot.
6.. Badosa.....love her game, power and control, had a great year....and she's super hot
7. Swiatek.....all class.....had great year under pressure
8. Jabeur....strong performance from Ons....fist Arabic lady to get this high, strong year.
9. Konteveit......Ok I should hate her for beating Bianca twice, but she was impressive to make YEC
10. Rybakina....smooth power game, never bitchy... she gorgeous and legs up to her eyeballs.

Dislike/least favourite

1. OSTAPENKO.....I put it in caps to voice my disdain for her, from her mindless bashing but mostly from her TOTAL lack of class on the court for her opponent, the officials, and the game itself. It never ends with this girl, easily dislike her more than everyone else on this list combined.
2. Svitolina....simply from her weak mentality and defensive play. She is a nice girl, classy, no worries. But the term "definition of insanity" applies to Elina' game. She does the same thing over and expects different results. Hard to respect her lack of mental strength in big tourneys.
3. Pliskova.... just disappears for large chunks of the season for me. She looks like she doesn't care, this indifference probably comes from her "serve and one" game.....which can like watching paint dry when off.
4. Azarenka....never a Vika fan....retires in matches at the drop of a hat, and can be pretty bitchy. Not a fan.
5. Kenin....lost a lot of respect for Kenin after her efforts this year....that Wimbledon performance was the worst effort I have ever seen. She should have been FINED for that performance. Why she turned into a ball basher is just beyond me....I think she is truly done, cracking under the pressure of expectation. She will fall out of top 100 early this year and never recover, she does not have the mental strength.
6. Osaka.....she is a great player still.....but I am off Naomi permanently ( and I was a fan) after the 'mental health" show she put on. It wasn't the issue itself, buy HOW she handled it....totally arrogant....and then try to HIDE behind this shield after the fact when called out on it by the slams. Gutless.

Players i like:
1. Iga Świątek - obviously.
2. Elena Rybakina - gentle giant, best looking female tennis player out there, hoping for a top 10 debut in 2022.
3. Maria Sakkari - i like that she likes being ultra fit and puts work into it.
4. Aryna Sabalenka - happy ballbasher, for me she's enjoyable to watch even while playing badly.
5. Magda Linette - she is cool, Polish nr. 2.
6. Kaja Juvan - girl next door vibes.
7. Viktorija Golubic - OHB, finally a better season.
8. Anett Kontaveit - adorable sneeze, second part of 2021 was a great watch.
9. Belinda Bencic - feisty attitude, first set of that us open match with Świątek was 10/10.
10. Clara Tauson - very promising young player climbing the ladder (and she won Luxembourg final vs. Ostapenko).

Players i dislike:
1. Naomi Osaka - obviously.
2. Marta Kostyuk - instagram star.
3. Bianca Andreescu - steady decline.
4. Amanda Anisimova - almost as good as Kostyuk.
5. Cori Gauff - still overhyped.
6. Victoria Azarenka - even though I don't really mind it nowadays, her grunt still haunts me from back in the day.
7. Elina Svitolina - idk, there is something off about her tennis, I don't like to watch her play.
8. Jeļena Ostapenko - just no.
9. Emma Raducanu - why Leylah, why.

LIKES,
1 SABALENKA: What's not to like about this crazy, dorkey bundle of energy,
2 RYBAKINA: Love her smooth game, cute, great legs, nearly perfect :love:
3 ALEXANDROVA: There is something about her I really love.
4 ANDREESCU: I would like her to be more consistent :p but she's always box office whenever she plays
5 COLLINS: I just love her fight, fantastic viewing, her health battles give me more admiration for her.
6 CRISTIAN: One of my new faves, very promising, Dracqueline (The Countess), one to watch
7 KOSTYUK: Finally cracked the top #50, very watchable, entertaining, great bikini instagrammer.
8 BOUCHARD: Still drives more traffic on TF than nearly everyone, most misunderstood player out there
9 ANISIMOVA: Would be higher if she was playing better, still young enough for dramatic improvement
10 KENIN: A horrible year, nothing went right, can't put her any higher than ten, 2022 will be much better.

Bubbling under, Giorgi, Siniakova, Yastremska, Pera, Fernandez, Tsurenko, Linette, Vikhlyantseva, Bellis

DISLIKES,
1 SAKKARI, just can't stand her, she rubs me up the wrong way for whatever reason
2 SEVASTOVA, Possibly the most miserable looking player on a tennis court, I feel depressed after watching her
3 KEYS: Her game to me is like watching paint dry
4 KUDERMETOVA: A combination of the first three players I have listed
5 OSAKA: "It's all about me" "Look at me". "I am the saviour of tennis". Need I say more.

I'm sure all FIVE ladies are very nice off court away from tennis, but I find them all very hard work.

Don't really dislike anyone else.

Kim is considered as an active player right?
