Aww....look at this picture:

I was searching through Jill Craybas photos and I found this picture:


ill Craybas of the United States, right, conforts her opponent Jie Zheng of China, lying on the ground, left, during a first round match of the Polo Open women's tennis tournament in Shanghai, China, Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2003. Zheng withdrew the match due to leg cramp as Craybas defeated Zheng 3-6,7-6, 2-0.

I think that, that's very, very nice of Jill! She really is a super-nice lady. When she beat Maureen Drake in 2003 (I think) she was interviewed by Rod Black on centre court and she made this whole speech (after a 1R!!!) about how she's really lucky to be in Canada and how Canadians are so nice.

It's nice to see some really great people, who are playing tennis and having fun at the same time - WIN OR LOSE.

Haha! To me, this pic looks like Jill clubbed Zheng from behind, and is now preening in front of her.

Of course Jill is smiling. She exhausted her opponent to the point where she won by retirement, and now she's kneeling over her wounded prey

Seriously though, Jill is a really nice woman. I've seen her play a bunch of times in person (unfortunately she's 0-4 with me watching lol) and she always signs autographs and poses for pictures with her fans after every match, win or lose. She's a very humble and hard working girl, and hopefully her late in life success continues for a few more years. It's hard to believe she is already 30...she plans to play for a few more years before settling into a career in production (she has a college degree in broadcast communications).

Well, I think she seems very nice, but of course the pic does not show the whole story. We do not know what she's saying to Zheng, but to be honest, I'd bet money it was something really nice

That was really nice of Jill but could she get some sponsers please. Her clothes are worse than Amy Frazier's and that's saying a lot. I thought Jill was some weird WTA trainer seeing what was wrong with Zheng in this picture.
