No eye-contact

I have noticed that when a lot of players walk off court after a match/practice they never answer people's cries, nor do they look anyone in the eyes...they just sign away...like signing machines.
Why? Is it for safety reasons? (ala, not wanting anyone to get the wrong 'ideas')

Then you have Michael Jackson & that name speaks for itself, no hype needed at all.

eye contact revels a lot. the players jus dont wanna fall in love with fans. it'll be weird. "hey, how you meet your boyfriend (fiance, husband)?" - "oh i was signing his tennis ball and it was jus love at first sight"

You're dang right it's for safety reasons. In fact, it's called the Rule of GrahamD and was first instituted by Daniela Hantuchova some time ago.

The WTAworld Quote Hall of Fame (recent entries):
"All this year Kim has been have catwalk draws ..." - leslie, on Kim Clijsters' easy draws in 2003
"I wanna see Anna, I bet I could tape that ass" - SerenaSlam, on fan perception of Anna K.
"n I am more of a retard, yes." - gogomaggie
"she has a face of a cereal killer" - Naldo, on Serena Williams

You mean Dani does it to everyone, not just me? That's a relief.

(Waiting for an idiot to make something of this post.)
