One of the most supportive families IMO... Safin. Rausa is always either with Dinara or Marat. What a great mom.

I thought Igor was at Hopman 2003 with Daniela, I don't think he was there this year though. I'm pretty sure I saw him there that year:)

Maleeva's mum was around until her surgery I think. She says it is better nowe alone because she dos not feel so much pressur. Manuela's husband coached Maggie a long time, too.

Steffi Graf had a very difficult father, but she was lucky enough to have a supportive, caring, and understanding mother who stayed out of the limelight. Oh, and no list of supportive mothers can be complete without a mention of Colette Evert, Esther Seles, Marisa Vicario, and Oracene Price.

These are grown women in their 20's. Their mum or dad not being there providing 24 hour care doesn't make them bad parents.

Exactly and I'm sure the players like Lindsay prefer that their mum's have their own life and don't have to come to every match they play.

I'm tired of all these grown women travelling around with their moms...after they turn 18 the strings should start letting loose and after 21 they should definitely be CUT...do u see grown men travelling around with their moms...

I mean, how is a girl to get any action when her mom is either in the same room with her or next to her ;)

Children,no matter how old, like to share their joy with their parents....especially if they can do it first hand. I'm sure the majority of players would give ANYTHING, to have A parent in the stands, watching them play and win a match.....Then the huge elation of running and making your way to the stands, desparately trying to get to them, to SHARE the joy of winning........or having parents there, just to recieve those comforting words, and unconditional love, after a disappointing loss!!!;)

I think Williams, Lena D, and Capriati take the cake on this one.

Yeah sure, but it doesn't mean that all players like to be like that. They are grown adults and don't need parents travelling round with them 24/7. If they have the right people around them its not a big deal.

If they have the right people around them its not a big deal. Unless we walk a mile in their shoes, we'll never know what they feel, need or want.Tennis is a highly emotional sport....I didn't say that all players "like to be like that"....I said there's NOTHING wrong with parental support!!!!;)

I guess that is why Molik's parents were at AO when she played Mauresmo and they looked like they were going to be sick. Just cause they don't go to every tournament does not mean they aren't interested in her career.

yea, you guys, i dont think the purpose of this thread was to argue over what's better-- parents or solo. what's good for one wouldn't be good for the other. a player like lindsay davenport or pete sampras have IMO benefitted from not having that extra pressure of having their parents always in the stands. someone like monica seles had great support from her mom and dad, then they showed up less and less as monica got older, and then after her father died, esther admittedly only went to monica's matches that were played where she liked to travel, and monica even joked about that herself. she had grown out of it, made herself her own person, and didn't need it anymore.
