NaNa did that too.
Some ppl even doubted that Jie was FORCED by the CTA to do so , how stupid and disrespectful.

I am loving the proper posts, however.

I think Gisela Dulko also helped a few years ago when Azarenka had to retire from heat exhaustion after just 2 games.
There are always cynics, you can't do anything about that.

Fortunately, the vast majority of the posts have kept up with with the spirit of the RVD's intent in creating the thread

Maria seems to have had an impact in that brief moment.

Jelena letting everyone beat her even though if she wanted to, she could beat everyone 6-0 6-0 and make the tour boring.

Also nice story about Robson. I really like her personality, not flashy, has an understated sense of humour.
Cirstea's first top 10 win was over Chakvetadze in Charleston 2008.

I forgot about Diyas though, where did she go?

EDIT: JJ lost to Cirstea in Fed Cup in 2008 so she was her first top 10 victory JJlena is so generous.

Ana was truly concerned here for Caro and her "life-threating injury", which turned out to be nothing serious, she was moving fine afterwards. Ana was so pissed because of Caros drama queen antics, she gave her a cold handshake at the net

It does not qualify for this thread. especially the way it ended in your description.
It would have been better not to post as it exposes Ana to criticism... and Caro too... depending on who you support in the first place.

That's just what's expected.

What else are they gonna do? Act like a cold bitch with the cameras rolling?
Yes.

Re: Positive & Random Acts of Kindness ...WTA Style.

What about when Nadia Petrova tried to console Liezel Huber at Wimbledon?
