Well...she had lessons how to work with the media and stuff (and probably still has).

I am not going to sit here and say that she´s not good handling all that just because I don´t really like her. She´s a perfect media´s dream, no doubt about that. Her interviews are just perfectly given. Even if she has nothing to say, it sounds like she has something to say. It´s intersting. She knows how to work with the cameras and the people behind those.

well like i said in an other thread, i still think maria was a bit unprofessional or downright arrogant at an interview at wimbledon. after the match against sesil(the 15year old venus never heard off ;)) she lost 1 game to sesil and they asked her if she let sesil win it. Then she starts talking about how being double bagled sucks with such a big arrogant grin. really hated that :mad:

This is just one person's opinion. I'm sure some others think it's Venus or Seles or somebody else.

A lot of commentators have said Maria was mature and well-balanced - even when she was 16.

She doesn't answer back when other players start bitching about her, she just ignores them. She knows how to handle the media, she's coped well with the sudden stardom that came after Wimbledon last year. On the court in the Final against Serena she played one of the most mature tennis games of any first time finalist in a Grand Slam, not panicking, not choking, just playing her game and finishing off the champion.

When she loses, she doesn't panic or blame illness, having bad line-calls or anything else. She just says she has to get back to hard work on her game. Of course Masha likes shoes and flashy clothes. But at 18, Masha is one of the most mature players out there.

Maria is mature, she is the wta media dream but I miss the days when Hingis would have her little hissy fits etc. It seems all the young players are so media trained. Thats why Sesil is refreshing in her own way :cool:

"Maria is the most Mature Tennis Star betwenn Hingis,Graff,Evert,Seles and Williams Sisters!"
Actually, he mentioned Seles, Evert, et al.; players no longer on the tour. He is referring to the maturity concerning their relative age. For instance at 16, aka Comparing Maria at 16, Serena at 16, Venus at 16, Hingis at 16, Graf at 16... etc
Then, when seen in this view, Maria is the most mature hands down :angel:

She is certainly more mature than the williams sisters and Hingis at 18, in terms of not shooting her mouth off.

I'd go with Monica or Venus.

Monica And Venus have always seemed mature
in how they've handled things and dubbed as
being aloof when simply they weren't out there
as some others.

With Venus and how at 17 handling the intentional
"bump" was very telling about her.

And what is their to say about Monica, has always
handled herself beautifully from what I know.
