Re: Who is the classiest player on court?

If you want to look to any players to see how to comport yourself to the most professional you can be - look to Monica Seles and Venus Williams.

She´s a real lady on the court
Yeah but she's always aloof and kind of condescending when handshaking her opponent. At least that's the impression I always get.

She isn't rude on court but that barking she does is certainly not classy

Re: Who is the classiest player on court?

Venus, and Shvedova pop to mind. Thats one of the reasons i like her. It's kinda incredible how Shvedova manages to keep her temper in check with the amount of choking she does.

But i don't think any of them are as classy as Del Potro.

Shvedova-Muguruza-Garcia-Lisicki

Woz is pretty classy when she shakes hands with her opponent after a loss.

Re: Who is the classiest player on court?

Stosur. But she's a class act in general.

Clijsters deserves a mention, retired or not.

I agree for both of them. I would add Dementieva, one of the classiest player ever. She was a great ambassador for women's tennis.

Also on my list:

Safarova
Makarova
Barthel
Wozniak
Martic
Larsson
Giorgi

Re: Who is the classiest player on court?

Venus is always great at the net, very smiley.

I think Sharapova has become very gracious in the past few years. I like some of her runner-up speeches and she was very appreciative toward the crowd in Istanbul a few weeks ago.
