Very silly of me to omit the Israelian players in the poll options : Smashnova and Peer, for example. :rolleyes:

Ai, because it's so funny when her eyes almost disappear when she smiles.

I would say in terms of watching play tennis- Ai and Shinobu; but they're
all great people. If you want to meet the friendliest tennis players, you
can't really go wrong with any of them.

I hate the word "classy" because it's over used by fans of other
players; but I'll use it for the Asian players. All the girls are from
good families and tend to be very, very classy. It would have to
be a really hard bad day if you met them and they were in a foul
mood. They're old school in some ways because they respect the
history and the value of sportsmenship, and ideals of tennis as
a sport.

Bravo to all of them. :)

I don't think Israel is part of Asia. In the World Cup qualifiers they
have Israel in the European section of the draws, not Asia.

Israel is never reported or associated with Asia from where
I am based in; and that's Singapore.

Wynne (who is launching her comeback this week).

Second: I'm ready to like Mirza but haven't seen her play yet, so I'll go with Akiko, who is fun to watch and looks agreeably snarly and nasty out there.

Definitely Sania :D .I've only seen two or three matches of hers,but iwas pretty impressed by what i saw(esp the match with kuzzie.wow!).I love her all-out aggression and fearless style of tennis.I don't think many Asians play like that.
I also like Shinobu :bounce:

Iroda Tulyaganova (inasmuch as Uzbekistan is in Central Asia), because she is a very talented and exciting player as well as a total sex-bomb. :hearts:

Shinobu is my top pick, but Ai is a close second. Their personalities are absolutely adorable. If you look at pictures of them playing in the Olympics, particularly their reactions after match point, you can't help but have a smile on your face.:)
