Players who are polite to ballboys

I've noticed that there are very few players who are polite to the ball boys and ball girls. Which players are polite to them?

I know that Petrova always says thank you to the ball boys for fetching her stuff. Sam Stosur is also polite to ball boys and ball girls.

Re: Players who are polite to ballboys

That's hard to think of off the top of my head.
Sharapova? She doesn't put her anger on the ball boys and always nods politely for balls I guess.

The umpires aren't really that nice to ballboys either.

Sharapova is underated with her politeness IMO.

Just listening to Petrova talking to ball boys atm. She always says please when she asks the ball boys to take stuff for her.

Nadia's a diva and makes the ball kids work. Get this, get that. But she isn't really rude, just demanding.

At least she says please though. Other players treat the ball kids like servants.
