C' mon give me some feedback
for me its
WTA:Henin Hardenne Sharapova
Lleyton Hewitt,Nicolas Massu
Justine Henin-Hardenne, Anastasia Myskina
my guess and hope would be hewitt .. the guy has no manners and should be getting some advice on how to be less of an a-hole.
ATP: Juan Ignacio Rodrigo Diego Del Real Chela
WTP: Sareenu Willumz
Do mean by fans, or among the players?
WTA: Schnyder... and whomever is dominating.
In American broadcast booths, Justine (aka "Grease Hand", "The Hand") Henin by a landslide for greasy conduct. My vote is for her, too.
But you have to love her for her fighting spirit and Gemini sun sign, hehe.
Compared to crybaby Amelie "The willaims's games are ugly and ruinous for the sport." Mauresmo, she's more likeable.
Hands down its Hewitt on the ATP tour. "COME ON!!!" Such an @$$!!
I don't hate him for his intensity, i just .... hate him.
I dont hate Hewitt i just could never cheer for him
there's just something about him that makes me not like him
Do you want "ever in the history of tennis?"
One incident that really bothered me about Hewitt was when he pointed at the linesman in the Aus Open after he thought the guy made a bad call earlier. That bothered me more than all the come ons even though they are real annoying too.
I guess one could also go back to the whole racial incident too. I guess he still denies it to this day. Probably better not to open that whole can of worms...
WTA: Henin-Hardenne, Myskina
im looking more for today on the tour
"Hate" is kind of strong
Isn't "hate" a little strong here? I mean let's reserve the word hate for something truly deserving of the word, like "hate to see children starving" or hate to see children being denied love and affection, or hate to see so many people being killed and maimed in Iraq and so many Israeliis and Palestinians killed and maimed. And prisoners being tortured. The list of things that truly deserve the word hate goes on and on, but I don't think tennis players should be on it.
is that your meaning with massu or did you read that??
I think you could go wrong,he only looks like a drugkiller)
I cheer for Hewitt only when he plays Roddick or Safin.
What do you have against Safin?
Could someone tell me why Henin-Hardenne is not liked? I don't often follow the WTA but I have seen her play and she is great. I'm obviously missing something here. Thanks
RodDick and Serena Williams
I dislike her because she likes to screw with peoples' minds by faking injuries and doing what she did to Serena, holding up her hand and then not admitting it.
Hewitt (for his antics, although I don't hate him)
Serena/Capriatti (i hate both)
Rusedski, Hewitt, Coria, Roddick....don't forget Rios, he has to be one of the all time least popular with peers. Oh and don't forget Muster, who was actually voted "most hated" one year by the players. Agassi wasn't beloved in the 1st half of his career either.
What is wrong with Coria and Serena? I don't get what they did.
Screw u guys! Hewitt's the best!
Hewitt may be a pretty good player but he acts like he is two years old. He is just really annoying.
(Speaking only for myself...) She has terrific strokes. But she cheats. I cannot abide cheaters.
Most disliked for players is Hewitt. (PMac, AO commentary).
There's no player to me more fun to watch than Hewitt. He tries so hard he deserves to be happy. I guess cuz i play like him, i dunno. He keeps his cool when he's losing though, but he pumps himself up when he's doin good. I get alot more mad than he does. Even Federer doesnt mind, prolly cuz he dont give Hewitt a chance to cheer lol. Oh well... i guess people like watching boring matches.
You're right! He's the best to get a tons of bagels from FED.
Sarcasm? English? What???
I'm apathetic toward all these things. Serena, I hate.
Wasn't she really injury-ridden last year with some illness?
Sorry, I meant in '03. Against Davenport at the Aus Open, against Capriati at the US Open, and then obviously against Serena at the French.
Hewitt because of the racist comments he made against James Blake and a black umpire one year assuming the ref gave Blake the point because of his skin color. He apologized later, but he shouldn't have said that in the first place. Plus his "Come on" comments after every point he wins are annnoying.
Williams Sisters because they never acknowledge that they lost a match, Myskina, and Kutznetova for pretty much the same reason.
I truly dislike Jennifer Capriati, just a stuck up ignorant person. Regarding nkhera1's statement about the Hewitt match, I really don't think that it was racist, I think the comment to the ref was meant to show that the same line judge was calling foot faults and had it out for him. I was at the match though, and there was a crazy amount of booing for Hewitt.
I also dislike Myskina but for a different reason. I dislilke her because she dislikes Sharapova because of what her dad does and because she speaks russian with a "coarse" accent. What kind of person dislikes someone because of something there parent does? And so what if she speaks russian with an accent. I mean sue her, she lived in America pretty much her whole life.
ATP : LLEYTON HEWITT
(His Racist remarks!)
WTA: JUSTINE HENIN & JENNIFER CAPRIATI
(Greasy conduct as mentioned above, you couldn't have described it better!)
(For her plain outright arrogance!)
Yeah i've heard about that, but to be honest with you I think Sharapova's dad is annoying as well. However, that isn't a good reason to hate someone, and Myskina is just jealous because she doesn't get half the attention or endorsements.
He is annoying but still. And she probably is jealous, I really wouldn't put it past her.
I agree, Joe, that hate is a little strong, but this IS a tennis board. If we were talking politics/international affairs, then yeah, the word would have more currencty vis a vis Iraq or terrorism. But this is a small, self-centered little community here-we play and follow tennis, for goshsakes, so you have to take this in perspective for all but a few goofballs.
Having said that, I don't "hate" any players, but there are a few current ones that ANNOY the heck out of me, or that I dislike. In no particular order they are: Hewitt, Sharapova, Capriati, Henin-Hardene, Rusedski, Coria and Agassi. My alternate would be JC Ferraro (only because he has some physical ailment excuse everytime he loses a match, but generally he's not so bad-just needs to crack a smile once in a while).
Hewitt...too many reasons to list but immature, bad sportsmanship, racism, intimidation tactics shown to opponents and linesmen are among the many I could list. I would love to see how he fared in life without continually hiding/surrounding himself behind his parents and various hanger ons.
Serena ....for having the BIGGEST ego, the worst "bad loser" I've ever seen & the only tennis player able to turn a simple media interview into a fashion publicity stunt for her own self promoting purposes.
Roddick and Agassi are at the top of male pros I dislike intensely. Roddick often fakes injuries when losing and feels free to open a fresh mouth whenever he wants.
For the WTA- Serena Williams is horrible. I have one thing positive to say though- When she was winning all the grand slams consecutively, she did not make a lot of errors and I liked the way she played and competed. However, I always want her to lose because she has always been rude, trashy, and a phony. I will NEVER forgive her for refusing to shake Mary Jo Fernandez's hand at the Roland Garros. The whole crowd booed her as well as moi. Good win for sweet Mary Jo
What is wrong with Agassi?
Yeah really, only a jerk would hate Andre Agassi.
Separate names with a comma.
