Which active slam winner has the most likeable personality?

Not about how they play, not about their achievement, not about their looks, not about what they wear etc. It's all about how they behave on court and off court too which makes people like them or attracted to them.

Masha. They way in which she handles herself on and off the court is the reason why I am a fan.

At the risk of enduring the wrath of the Masha haters I'm gonna say Maria. She carried herself with great dignity after a tough loss Saturday and showed the world what a class act she truly is. Clijsters gets honorable mention here. She almost always has a smile on her face. Even when she was schooling the on-court interviewer at the AO for insulting her figure

Re: Which active slam winner has the most likeable personality?

Li Na I just find her so absolutely genuine, but I think that's sort of the way for players who are thrust into true GS contender out of nowhere. I think that's what made Schiavone so wonderful last year, it all seemed real, and they were on the ride along with us.

I feel with most of the others (with the exception of Petra and Sveta really) it's more an act, because they are already in the business of contending and becoming a brand from the word go. They were almost destined for this, so they are more trained, and more aware of everything. It's more of a package (not saying it's a bad thing, just a reality).

I think it's only when players achieve this sudden fame, is when you see the true personality. Think Schiavone last year's FO, Li Na this year's Oz, or even Marion Bartoli during her Wimbledon finalist run (Pierce Brosnan in the stands!).

How anyone can say Martha's personality is likable is just beyond me.

Ana Ivanovic, easily. Her personality is the main reason why I became a fan. Genuinely very nice and sweet and handles herself with class and respect on and off the court. Just watch her pressers. Great role model for kids.

Apathetic Ana Ivanovic fan.

Na for me with Fran and Kim not far behind...

Not sure why people are voting Masha . She seems nice I guess.

Haven't seen enough from Petra but she seems pretty cool.

Kim, Kuzzy, Franny, Petra and Na are all adorable
Ana seems like a sweetie too.
The only one who has sometimes seemed a bit off to me is Serena. But I don't hate her or anything. I also think Maria is a lot better these days.

Re: Which active slam winner has the most likeable personality?

Na of course. Calm and determined on court. Hilarious and sweet off court. And she is just a good person in general.

Serena, Sveta and Fran also have great personalities.
