Tomljanovic rubbishes talk that all WTA players hate each other: "That's definitely not the case"

Contrary to popular belief, not all players on the WTA Tour hate each other, according to Australian tennis star Ajla Tomljanovic.

The World No.41 stated there is a stigma associated with the WTA, in that most of the players dislike each other. Although she admitted it was impossible for everyone to be close friends, there was no hate in the locker rooms.

"Yeah. There's a big stigma on the women's tour that we all hate each other, and that's definitely not the case," said Tomljanovic in an appearance on the Talk Tennis Podcast. “People just like to cling more to the negative stuff than the good things that happen, and I can say that I found some of my closest friends on tour. Not a lot, but you know, a few. And I think that's precious."

The 29-year old believes as a person gets older, they tend to be more selective in the company they keep. However, this doesn't indicate that they hate each other, as she gets along very well with most of the girls on tour.

"At the end of the day, you have to spend time with who you're the happiest with and comfortable with," she added. "I'm just happy that I have a pretty good relationship with most of the girls on tour, with a few of my favorites."
