Hey all,

I always wonder how much interaction is there? Post stories or thoughts about friendships (if you want to include romantic relationships, fine, but more friends). Also are there any WTA players that ATP players admire??

Kim is friends with Xavier Malisse and Kristof Vliegen since their youth.
I remember when Kristof Vliegen played his first ATP-final last year, Kim sent him a message to congratulate him. :angel:
And it's obviuos that Kim and Xavier get along excellent when you watch them play Hopmancup together! :D

Amélie is friends with Sébastien Grosjean and Fabrice Santoro.

Actually, all the French players seem to get along well.

Emmanuelle Gagliardi and Marat Safin must be friends- she was watching one of his matches a while ago.

Schett and Schuettler ;) ;) ;)

Yeah! I was watching one of their mix-double matches at Wimby. It was sooo cute. During that match Rainer made an unbelievable shot, he danced a little bit around the court with a big fat funny smile, dance-celebrated back to Schett, opened his arms and waited for her to hug him (which she did).

Those two would be such a cute couple!

Funny to see what some people are surprised at! You'd think people werent supposed to have friends from other races!

Anyway in addition to whats been said Bovina and Tursunov are friends.
So are Kournikova and Bogomolov.
Maybe Bartoli and Grosjean just because I saw her watching one of his matches in his box once.

Monica Seles and Marcelo Rios are bestest buddies. :tape: I'm only kidding. ;)

Seriously, Todd Woodbridge has been mates with Rachel McQuillan and Rennae Stubbs since their junior days. Since Todd married Natasha Provis, I'd think he got to know her sister Nicole Bradtke (nee Provis) quite well in the process too. Todd sure gets around with the ladies. What a slut.

Could we say that Ashley Harkleroad and Andy Roddick are friends, or was he merely just a stalker pest to her before?

Boris Becker and Steffi Graf grew up together. She often beat him when they were 10 and she made him cry. Are they friends or merely drawn together by their shared experiences as victims of the German press?

Back in '97 the both of them were standing in the buffet line at the Nasdaq. Monica was in front of Marcelo and sort of taking her time looking at everything. Marcelo looked at Monica and said "Move your fat ass, bitch." So I'd say they're not on good terms now lol.

Becker used to often say that when the two of them were growing up, he often had to play with Graf because he was the worst among the boys in his age group and Graf was the best among the girls in her age group. I always got the impression that any "friendship" between them was largely a media invention and something Becker seemed to believe in more than Graf did. I'd say they were acquaintances who spoke to each other occasionally, but I wouldn't call them friends.

Kournikova gets along quite well with Hingis and Schett. Plus she has this equal respect thing going on with Davenport, which is nice and professional!

Kournikova gets along with the boys as well. Two I haven't seen mentioned here are Max Mirnyi and Jonas Björkman!

Actually, Justine has been friends with Olivier Rochus since they were kids. But I don't think they're still good friends, based on some things Ollie said in interviews. Although he was at her wedding on the other hand. :)
