Marat Safin does sound quite funny from his interviews
Haven't really heard the others be funny!
Jun 11th, 2002, 02:38 PM
I think Serena has a great sense of humour!
Her interviews are often very funny

I agree with all of his picks, plus Ivanesevic whom Rollo mentioned.
Jun 11th, 2002, 03:42 PM
With any doubt:
1. Lindsay Davenport :) :)
2. Martina Hingis
3. Marat Safin
4. Andre Agassi
Go Portugal............:wavey: 4 vs 0 :D :D
Jun 11th, 2002, 04:00 PM
Oh yeah definately I would include Ivanishevic :)
Jun 11th, 2002, 04:56 PM
Funny that there is only ONE WTA PLAYER in his list. :o
Jun 11th, 2002, 04:59 PM
Safin seems to be funny, Martina is funny of course :), and also I agree with Serena and Ivanisevic.
Jun 11th, 2002, 05:02 PM
I disagree with everyone who's said Ivanisevic, he's just an idiot. Safin definitely though, and Venus comes up with some nice one-liners. Guga as well?
VSFan1 aka Joshua L.
Jun 11th, 2002, 05:02 PM
1. Martina Hingis
2. Goran Ivanesavic
3. Serena Williams
4. Marat Safin
That's all I think are funny ;)
Jun 11th, 2002, 05:16 PM
Goran IVANISEVIC (not ivanesevic, ivanesavic, or ivanishevic) ;)
Jun 11th, 2002, 05:16 PM
Serena is very funny.
Jun 11th, 2002, 05:21 PM
I kinda think Serena is funny too sometimes. But he forgot one is the FUNNIEST OF ALL.... IVA MAJOLI!
Jun 11th, 2002, 05:36 PM
I say Vince Spadea is one of the funnier player on tours. His lines during his infamous slump in 2000 were PRICELESS!
After he lost his first round match (again) at the US Open, a reporter asked him where he was headed off to next. He replied, "Burger King. For an application, not a meal!"
Good thing he's starting to get his game back on track. He really is a nice guy.
Other funny players on atp/wta tours
Nancy-Loeffler Caro (her game, not her comments)
Jun 11th, 2002, 08:14 PM
I can't believe no one put Monica on this list!!! She has such a great laugh and takes a lot of things in good humor!
Jun 11th, 2002, 08:48 PM
If you asked all the players (WTA that is) the majority verdict would be......... Barbara Schett.
Jun 11th, 2002, 11:17 PM
Marat! He was explaining how he has problems w/ coaches that they don't understand him etc.. He said one of the differences is that his coaches and him watched different cartoons growing up! That just cracked me up!
Jun 11th, 2002, 11:23 PM
agree with many here but also Pat Rafter.
Jun 12th, 2002, 09:39 AM
LOL Meesh i didn't hear that one about Safin :D
Jun 12th, 2002, 09:46 AM
hi FP....even during press conferences, win or lose, you can see Marat talking casually to a reporter. He forgets his on camera just talks his heart out.hehehe:D
Jun 12th, 2002, 09:52 AM
"Funny" WTA players (seriously) include: Iva Majoli, Martina N, Gala Leon, Tarabini, Maleeva (depending on her costume for the party), Olga, Natasha (easily) and Testud! :)
