Venus is gracious at net, Lindsay sometimes, Clijsters and Pierce are gracious in defeat as well as Jankovic.

Serena's great at the net, it's behind the table where she goes mean.

Sorry, I'm a little confused.

Are you saying that Venus is gracious at the net, but not in the actual defeat, and the same with Lindsay, but sometimes.

And are you saying that Clijsters, Pierce and Jankovic are not nice at the net, but are in he actual defeat?

Patty??? :lol::smooch:

She's usually not that bad. Only to Conchita really. :shrug:

I think Yuliana Fedak and Maria Kirilenko are really cold at net.

Who cares.

Wimbledon fans care.
They like the soft polite way, not loud shouting out.
I hear da man interviewed after the war. Why did the Nazis hate Russians and Jews? They were not ethnic Germans, not pure Marians, even Hitler wasn't but he planned to upgrade his genes in his next life, such was his arrogance and belief in God.
The man actually said, "It (the difference) showed itself. Let's say Russians are inferior. How? For example; In France, flush toilets, in Russia, a toilet out the back, you know..."

Go to Israel... treat the Jews with utter contempt because they are beneath contempt. They can feel it and they know it, even if they pretend to be polite.. Hate them if you must. People like us, well that is different.

Venus and Serena are usually great. Jelena is also nice at net regardless of outcome. Venus cracks me up sometime though, sometimes she's all so smiley like she just whipped someone a double bagel :D

Lindsay is always gracious whether she wins or not. Serena in recent years has gotten alot better and she actually talks to her opponent aswell (she told Flavia the match was fun in Miami).

I don't count just smiling but not looking directly at the opponents as being gracious.

Venus is gracious some of the time and Lindsay all of the time. I will say that Venus is getting better at being a gracious loser than she used to be. :)

Venus has always been gracious in victory or defeat!!! I've never seen her have a bad attitude at the net. Linds is also very gracious though. Maybe because the are both Gemini's :shrug:

I think they both are. Venus would be my first choice.
And about that Gemini comment :lol: (I'm also a Gemini)

both Venus and Serena always smile at the net- that's something I learned to do too because it looks gracious and it takes away some of your opponen'ts satisfaction! :D

however when Venus laugh and jump of joy when she wins, some opponents may get pissed (see Dementieva nasty reaction in her interview...)

For me its Kim, followed closely by Lindsay and then Venus.
Kim always smiles and give a chic to chic ( beso beso) after each of her match win or lose.
On the other hand, Lindsay and Venus are more of a professional kind of way in congratulating their opponent even when they lose.

Ai Sugiyama. She is the one player that win or lose and regardless of who her opponent is, she always has that gracious smile on her face.
