Who is the most sympathetic/friendly girl on tour?

Instead of polling to the most hately girl on tour, I rather poll who do you think is the most sympathetic/kindly/friendly/warmhearted girl on tour? Discuss it over here

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

Kim, I've never seen her in a bad mood and she's always friendly!
I didn't even have to think about my choice!

I voted for kim, simply because I saw her at the Acura Classic and she was the nicest person. like 30 people were surrounding her and she probably signed all their programs and even took pictures with whoever wanted to. Also, I never see her throw any tantrums on the court.

I chose Monica. cos when she was recuperating and recovering emotionally after her stabbing... few players bothered to be kind or nice or encouraging to her... except Arantxa, Martina N. gaby?

so Monica knows what is it like to be encouraged and how nice it is when a player comes up to say nice words? (see Martina N. giving Monica a pendant or something when she cameback to tennis)
and Monica's practicing the kindness cos she knows how important it is

Well I would have voted for Anke Huber, but since she's gone now I would vote for Lindsay no question.

As far as I know....I don't know too much from personal experience, but Kim seems to be the friendliest girl on the tour.
From sending thank you letter to the tournament organisers to her on and off court persona...she definitely seems at the top of the pile.

From my recent personal experiences, Daniela seem like a beautiful girl inside and outside.
Most of the players I really, really like are genuinely nice people.
Carlos Moya, JC Ferrero, Stefan Edberg, Kim and Daniela.
That is one of the main reasons I love Daniela, the way she presents herself on and off the court is beautiful.
During a bad call, she will give a shocked look, take a deep breath, fix her cap, and get back to it.
She is shy and innocent as well, and that is the reason she is the way she is. All Slovaks seem to be quite achieves....just look at Mr Karol Kucera....who wouldn't say boo to anyone.

I never met one so I have no idea!

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I don't know them personally so I can't vote. I don't want to base my opinion of them based on a sports writer's perceptions nor the images I see from a tennis match because the camera can tell the truth as much as it can deceive.

Sympathetic - Well there was this player that held up a get well soon sign for Corina and was a player to send flowers to Martina after her ankle injury last year although she had just nicked her no. 1 ranking

but yeah, TBE - I'll just vote for my fav

and where they produce desolation, they call it peace

I voted for Serena. Despite all the comments that Hingis has made about the Williams family, Serena gave her a pat on the back after defeating her.
She also gave capriati a pat on the back. These actions were significant as both Capriati and Hingis have gone ahead and made nasty comments about Serena after defeating her. Do you remeber Jenny'c comments at Wimbledon?
