Safina= nicest player ever
It was late in the day in Toronto and my sister and I were dying for some water. The $5.00 price tag was a little too high for a bottle so we decided to go without. Before we left we decided to catch Safina's practice session. After showing some patience with a woman whose camera wouldn't work we asked her to sign my hat and then my sister asked if she can pass along a water from the player's water bin. Safina said "sure" walked over and then said, "maybe you'd like a powerade instead"--giving us 2 waters and a powerade. Soon after us a little boy ran up and also asked for a powerade. Also said "sure" and proceeded to ask him what flavour he would like. When the flavor he requested was not in the ice bin she proceeded to look under the table and handed him a bottle with a smile.
Now, surely her kindness was conditioned by the fact that there were no other fans in sight and that we were on a secluded side court with no volunteers/security around. But this is one player that truly went above and beyond!
