The fifth "most-hated" sportsman in Argentina is...

Lleyton Hewitt

Surprising, really. I didn't think the clashes at Davis Cup and the Australian Open had such an impact. It's hardly newsworthy in Australia, so I would've thought the same for Argentina.

I wonder how the Aussie tennis fans will react when the Argentines take to court this coming January.

David Beckham's number 3, btw. Seems like the infamous 1998 World Cup kick still hasn't been entirely forgiven by Argentinian soccer fans.

Re: The fifth "most-hated" sportsman in Argentina is...

yup...read that 2...no big surprise... My guess is not only in Argentina...talented but what a shitty atitude sometimes...
Anyway..who else did you expect? Tennis has become a national sport lately in Argentina, and the victory over Australia in the DC I'm sure influenced this decision...

[FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]Lleyton? Poor of him! Ok, he´s not the most loved tennis player in the world, but, is him so annoying as to be called the 5th most hated sportamn of Argentina?

Hewitt is already the 3rd in the poll.

Pretty ironical that they put Joao Havelange on the list, when he was the man that granted Argentina the right to host the World Cup in 1978 (which they ended up winning), despite the political crisis they were facing at the time.

The Argies are just jealous of a world-class tennis player who can stay in the top 5 while not doping.



C'mon, Lleyton!

Sadly, I think Lleyton Hewitt is, ahem, strongly disliked in many countries.

Who the hell cares about the fifth most-hated person when you have four personalities who are more hated and reviled by the public?

And I was just about to post and ask who the top 4 are?

The great thing about democracy is that it gives every voter a chance to do something stupid.
