Day 5 - Least favourite women’s player

Maria Sharapova

Once again, no doubt she's a great tennis player. But the on-court mannerisms, the "in your face" fistpumps, the general cold attitude that says "I'm better than you"... They all make me cringe. She's just too perfect to be true (other than those double faults). Exactly like Federer, really.

But I do have to say this - I'm perfectly fine with the shrieks. This merits its own post someday, but I think this issue is exaggerated completely out of proportions. I've watched Sharapova-Azarenka matches without turning the volume down. Get over it, people.
