What active WTA player would you note for displaying exemplary character?
This is biased against younger players. Tennis players are sheltered, and it's had to demonstrate character above and beyond when you're a teenager anyway.
Venus Williams speech after winning Dubai in 2009 is an example of good character.
Or when Svetlana Kuznetsova was accused of using PEDs, Alicia Molik bought out all the copies of the newspaper she saw the article in, and ripped them to shreds.
Poor character? Coaching from the stands, wiping away ball marks on clay, repeated delaying tactics, etc etc etc ....
Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
