A note about the following players!!!

Jut getting back from the Acura Classic, I would like to point out that the following players are absolute sweethearts and should be recognized for their amazing kindness towards their fans

Anastasia Myskina (very, very, very polite)
Barbara Schett (a pleasure and very entertaining to be around)
Maria Sharapova (very mature, and accessable to fans)
Petra Mandula (very laid back and always has a smile)
Amy Frazier (very friendly to everyone)
Martina Navratilova (hardest worker I've ever seen, and very nice)
Lisa Raymond (very nice and carries herself so well)
Cara Black (absolute sweetheart, very down to Earth)
Lindsay Davenport (one of the sweetest people I've ever met)
Renee Stubs (devoted towards her fans, very nice to be around)
Daniela Hantuchova (2nd time I've met, very intelligent, despite 2 hard losses, gave autographs to all fans)
Elena Dementieva (2nd time I've met, both times absolute pleasure to be around)
Mary Pierce (down to Earth, nicest and warm hearted girl in the world)

Jelena Dokic, Daniela Hantuchova, Marion Bartoli, Elena Dementieva

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.

Let's see, things I remember about Myskina...
*I don't think she turned a single fan down for an autograph
*She said "Thank you" & "Please" about a million times to everybody, even to fans who talked to her on change overs right in the middle of her doubles match
*She was very down to Earth, she would sit in the stands and listen to music or read a magazines while watching others play matches.
*She jogged a lot around the tournament.
*Yesterday in doubles w/ Elena instead of water & gatorade like her partner, she asked the umpire (of course she said please & thank you) for a soda. They brought her a six pack a coke; she drank 3 of them during her match. It made her happy at the time, but by the end of the match she became so tired I think she wished she had made the gatorade decision instead.

3 sodas?!!! I can barely stand straight after one!
I just love it when she says "thank you"! She sighnes an autograph- "thank you", she takes a photo with me- whispers "yes when I ask her if I can take a pic with her and also says "thank you"!

Things about Hantuchova...
* She is so pretty, she looks so healthy and adorable in person.
*Right before her 1st round match, their was a huge crowd waiting for Harkleroad to give autographs and someone just about knocked Dani down, she just turned and smiled when the person said sorry.
*She is very intelligent and I think she has the rules book memorized word by word. She seemed to jump at every call. Right in the middle of her doubles match against Stubs & Black she even began to explain to Rennae why a call went the way it did. And if she wasn't sure about the way a call went she would ask the umpire if he was absolutly confident in his call and she would explain the rules to him. She began to remind me of Hermione in Harry Potter. She is so confident in her intelligence.
* Her partner hit a serve out and when Rennae Stubs gently returned it, Dani thought the ball was in play & slammed it right at Rennae's head. As soon as Rennae started yelling at her, you could tell in her face that she felt so bad and embarrassed. Her cheeks started turning red. Her partner Bartoli, was great though and told her the ball was in and the lines man made the mistake, even though I think everyone could tell it was out.
*She was so upset with the way some of her matches went. But, as soon as the match was over she would take a deep breath and smile at her fans. She signed autographs for everyone and took pictures. Most players who loose a tough match just want out of the stadium so quickly, and she regrouped from being upset so fast. That takes a lot of character.

anything about lindsay? I love her.

MARIA SHARAPOVA: "Amélie, you know it doesn't really matter at this point. I mean, I'd love to, I mean, Amélie is No. 1 in the world. She's playing great tennis. You know, I love that challenge of going out there and competing against the best in the world."
You'd love to what, Maria?
