Players Personalities?

Ok let me ask you guys this:
I went to the US Open this year and spent alot of time at the practice courts and one day Venus came out and talked to what looked like family friends. She stood ten feet from the autographs section by the practice courts. As soon as she was done talking everyone yelled and screamed for venus and what did she do... Walked Away. I believe this was after her match that she had won.
In my opinion, if your one of the top players on the tour and you have many many fans shouldn't you pay them back for the support they have given you year after year? I found what she did as arrogant and very rude.
?????
This was just puzzling to me?

Re: Players Personalities?

I totally agree. None of the top players would be where they are if it wre not for the fans. Venus and Serena are the worst at fan appreciation as far as I know. They only way they sign is if you buy their book. That is crazy and annoying!!

Re: Players Personalities?

i remember mentioning this when i first started posting here. yeah venus and serena aren't the nicest when it comes to that. safina either, but i still like her. you will be happy to know though that jelena jankovic is one of the most fan friendly of all the top players.

Re: Players Personalities?

Then the players wouldn't do anything else than signing autographs.

Well actually, in terms of tennis playing, they uld be exactly where they are without fans, because fans do nothing to help their tennis game. But fans also buy the tickets to the tourneys therefore enabling the players to get paid. That said, I'm not really into collecting autographs, I'd much rather be able to take a nice pic of a player I like. But I can understand people would be disappointed if they wanted an autograph and missed out because the player just ignored everyone. Some players just don't like to sign I guess. Plus it depends on the situation - ie when they are being asked to sign. obviously some moments are more appropriate than others.

Re: Players Personalities?

Venus she is the silent type..comes and does her job [gives it a 100% concentration] and goes..

She isnt an attention-whore like Jankovic who even strips in front of the crowd to get attention.

Re: Players Personalities?

Are they forced to sign autographs? No they aren't. Tennis players have lifes and other things to do sometimes. And those people there I doubt many of them are fans, just because they knew her name doesn't mean they are fans and support her.

Re: Players Personalities?

I've heard plenty of nice Venus-fan encounters though. RussianBoy had a whole thread about it in Stuttgart, Cam mentioned a nice encounter with Venus, a few other posters have posted about nice enounters with Venus, and I think there's a picture of spiceboy with Venus eating like pigs together. Venus might just prefer one on one encounters as opposed to wild mobs of ebay autograph sellers. Many people can testify to positve encounters.
