Why are female tennis players so boring?

Theyre all the same. In mens tennis u know what each players like. Youve got players like Spadea, Tursunov, baghdatis and many more who r just known for being themselves. Women tend to stay so reserved during interviews, barely joke around and are just all like davydenkoettes. Im not saying theyre mean people, i like many of the women on tour including ivanovic, vaidisova, penetta and Mauresmo who all seem like very nice people but theyre just not like the ATP guys.

Re: Why are female tennis players so boring?

Davydenko is actually quite funny, but not everyone sees that.

Well the WTA are more image conscious.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Why are female tennis players so boring?

Davydenko knows what he is saying, just cause a guy has a boring tennis style for some, doesn't mean they are boring or lack humour, that's just lazy.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Not all WTA players are boring.
And Kolya is funny.

Re: Why are female tennis players so boring?

I personally find Davydenko considerably more entertaining than Nadal. Both on- and off-court.

Yes, this means a lot of people don't get it.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Why are female tennis players so boring?

I don't like women's tennis because too many 6-2 6-2 matches in the early rounds. Moreover almost every woman plays from the baseline with two handed backhand what is for me irritating and boring. I watch only semis and finals in the Grans Slam events

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces
