If players like Graf and Sampras were able to quickly run to their chair (and only in the middle of a very long game might I add) and get their own towel themselves then I don't see why these current prima donnas can't do the same. I saw Murray during the week just blatently ignore a ballboy running along side him with his towel outstretched for a good ten seconds before he took it and not even a simple thanks muttered.
I don't see any aggressive gesture by her when asking for the towel, tbh. many players ask for the towel, not only her. I'd say, everyone. if asking for the towel is seen as a lack of respect or something like this, well, let the players take it by themselves.
