Talkin' bout sportsmanship - Majoli def. Dragomir

I've been watching Baroli - Razzano refused handshake for a couple of times and it reminded me of a clip I came across few days ago. It has been probably posted here before not once, but I hope some of you will find it adorable.

It's quite the contrary And it is one of the most beautiful moments in WTA history, if we're talking about good sportsmanship.
Do you imagine it today? Enjoy!

What a fabulous shot at 1:16

Lovely moment at the end of the match. No you probably wouldn't see that today.

Both really lovely players in every possible way. Ruxandra was always a personal favourite of mine.

Re: Talkin' bout sportsmanship - Majoli def. Dragomir

I saw some amazing handshakes recently

I remember one between Nastya and Davenport in Filderstadt
They chatted at the net for like 20 seconds and then Nastya went to the wrong side of the net to take her bag (well it was lindsay's one!) and they both laughed

Anastasia Myskina


Radwanska - S. Williams - V. Williams - Kerber

You said Filderstadt but, if I correctly remember, it was at the YEC.

no no I'm pretty sure it happened at Filderstadt (Nastya lost)
But their YEC handshake was very warm too
