Re: Has ever a Tennis Player given their Racquet to a FAN

I remember an exhibition match in Spain 2 years ago between Martina, Nadia, Conchita and Vivi and all of them gave their raquets to fans.
I was there

My Dad got a racquet from an unknown player when he was young. Not that he was a fan..

When vaidisova smashed her racket to bits in her 2nd Round USO match, she threw the remains to one of the fans after the match.

Petrova gave her racquet to Piercy666. She wrapped it round his head.

Kournikova wiped her nose with a tissue and gave it to a ballboy for him to throw it in the trash, but he just stuffed it into his pockets instead

Re: Has ever a Tennis Player given their Racquet to a FAN

I saw Hingis throw her racket into the stands after winning the Australian Open. Don't know who caught it, but Cliff Drysdale said something like "That fan now has something he will keep forever."

I think I have see other players do the same thing, but I can't cite and specific examples.

I think Martina threw one into the crowd after the 1999 AO final, or I just dreamed it. I'm not sure.
