I was searching through Jill Craybas photos and I found this picture:

http://cache.wtnphotos.com/654/21238351203craybas.jpg
ill Craybas of the United States, right, conforts her opponent Jie Zheng of China, lying on the ground, left, during a first round match of the Polo Open women's tennis tournament in Shanghai, China, Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2003. Zheng withdrew the match due to leg cramp as Craybas defeated Zheng 3-6,7-6, 2-0.

I think that, that's very, very nice of Jill! :) She really is a super-nice lady. When she beat Maureen Drake in 2003 (I think) she was interviewed by Rod Black on centre court and she made this whole speech (after a 1R!!!) about how she's really lucky to be in Canada and how Canadians are so nice.

It's nice to see some really great people, who are playing tennis and having fun at the same time - WIN OR LOSE.

Haha! To me, this pic looks like Jill clubbed Zheng from behind, and is now preening in front of her. :o

Of course Jill is smiling. She exhausted her opponent to the point where she won by retirement, and now she's kneeling over her wounded prey:p

Seriously though, Jill is a really nice woman. I've seen her play a bunch of times in person (unfortunately she's 0-4 with me watching lol) and she always signs autographs and poses for pictures with her fans after every match, win or lose. She's a very humble and hard working girl, and hopefully her late in life success continues for a few more years. It's hard to believe she is already 30...she plans to play for a few more years before settling into a career in production (she has a college degree in broadcast communications).

Well, I think she seems very nice, but of course the pic does not show the whole story. We do not know what she's saying to Zheng, but to be honest, I'd bet money it was something really nice;)

That was really nice of Jill but could she get some sponsers please. Her clothes are worse than Amy Frazier's and that's saying a lot. I thought Jill was some weird WTA trainer seeing what was wrong with Zheng in this picture.

What would YOU do if your opponent was lying flat on the ground and suffering from leg cramp? If you were a cold, heartless bitch, you'd go back to your seat and let the WTA trainers take care of her since you wouldn't be able to do much else for her anyway. However, if you were a normal person, you'd at least go over to check on your opponent to help out in any way possible and to show them that you're not a cold, heartless bitch.

That's not Anabel Medina Garrigues. Seles didn't bother going to the other side of the court when Anabel fell on the court.

Oh yeah, it's Brie Rippner. ;)
Sorry, got my rebound-ace-ankle-injuries confused.

Yup, Seles d. Rippner 1-0 retired. :sad:

I know for a fact Lindsay Davenport isn't a bitch, nor is Elena Dementieva. But when their opponents, Justine Henin-Hardenne and Anna Smashnova-Pistolesi (Pistolesi then) fell to the ground with cramps ('03 AO, '04 RG) they didn't walk over and ask if they were okay, so yeah IT IS PRETTY RARE TO HAVE A PLAYER BEING SO GENEROUS.

And, in the AMG case Monica wasn't all that helpful.

But let's not get into that one again. :tape:

:lol: It was Graf who helped Medina-Garrigues. I was at that match at the AO! (At least I thought it was Ana who ooh noooooooooooooooooooooooooo it was Husarova! :lol: ). Don't mind me! ;)

Did Schaul go to the other side of the court when Krajicek fainted last year at Rosmalen? I don't recall seeing any pics of her doing so...
