Mr. John Wertheim asked who has the best sence of humour out of tennis players answered:

1) Todd Martin
2) Marat Safin
3) Martina Hingis
4) Roddick
5) James Blake

Now if you was asked the same whom would you picked, and evidence, I mean funny quote from the player, u've chosen.

The loser is the one who failed to understand that it needs to stand up as many times as has fall not once less...

I think Serena has a great sense of humour!
Her interviews are often very funny

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

Safin seems to be funny, Martina is funny of course , and also I agree with Serena and Ivanisevic.

I disagree with everyone who's said Ivanisevic, he's just an idiot. Safin definitely though, and Venus comes up with some nice one-liners. Guga as well?

I say Vince Spadea is one of the funnier player on tours. His lines during his infamous slump in 2000 were PRICELESS!

After he lost his first round match (again) at the US Open, a reporter asked him where he was headed off to next. He replied, "Burger King. For an application, not a meal!"

Good thing he's starting to get his game back on track. He really is a nice guy.

Other funny players on atp/wta tours

Martina Hingis
Serena/Venus
Anastasia Myskina
Emmanuelle Gagliardi
Andy Roddick
Marat Safin
Goran Ivanisevic
Nancy-Loeffler Caro (her game, not her comments)
