Who are Currently the most Dedicated Parents in Tennis?

Parents who come to all the matches, show's support not only to their children, but the game of tennis in general.

I'm just curious to know what everyone thinks.

Matthew 14:28 Then Peter called to him, “Lord, if it’s really you, tell me to come to you, walking on the water.”
29 “Yes, come,” Jesus said.

Oracene, Richard, Snezana, and Vera are all good examples of what tennis parents should be.

Duh. But JJ's mom is pretty dedicated too, even willingly to push a trolley for her.

Jelena's mom and Oracene seems to be very well-grounded, sane persons.

Re: Who are Currently the most Dedicated Parents in Tennis?

Richard, Oracene, and Lakeisha of course.

Walter Bartoli is just as involved in Marion's life but in a very professional, non-overbearing way. Marion loves her dad so much, it seems like, and that's really good for tennis parents. Because for every Walter and Richard, there's a Piotr and Radwanski.

Next stop: Roland Garros

Ana ('08 RG), Serena (21), Venus (7), Petra (2), Angie ('16 AO)
Vika (2), Sveta (2), Simona, Garbi, Ka. Pliskova
Kim (4), Mahree (2), Monica (9), Dokic, Sandrine, Jie

Re: Who are Currently the most Dedicated Parents in Tennis?

Oracene, Richard, Snezana and Vera Dementieva are all standouts among the tennis parents, in a good way for once.

And Snezana has dedicated her life to Jelena apparently. What's wrong with that? Just like every other tennis parent that appears regularly on their child's matches, I may add.

Swiss champs.
