Henin and Momo are both kind of whiney. They were complaining about Venus and Serena. But I really can't blame them. I would too.

Hi Guys,
I know as soon as you see my name, you know what to expect, but Daniela typifies class in my opinion.
From her demeanor on court to the way she is full of praise for her opponent during press conferences.
She never makes an excuse for a loss and tells it the way it is, and doesn't complain about a call unless it's an obvious mistake and still continues on her way and does thing that people dont expect from her, like shaking the umpires hand even after losing a match on a time violation. Sorry to bring it up, but that shows the way she is.

Honoured to be a fan of hers.

Thank you

Simon V

Venus & Serena, among many others you ninny! (though as usual you want to pretend that ONLY your faves are "classy." How infantile! Just because YOU hate the Williams sisters doesn't mean they're not classy. Get a grip!

*sigh* this is why i don't post in GM often. At least point your outbursts at a particular person. so you don't get un-needed flames back at you

Do we mean gracious? Proud?
or polite?


I take it you mean gracious.

I think it's players like Monica, Mary Jo, Kimiko Date,
Gabby Sabatini, Lindsay, Steffi (never seen her be little
a lesser opponent during a match by doing smug things like
check on her nails), ASV, Amanda Coezter, Corina,Tammy, Ai,
(All the Asian players), Maggie, Mary Pierce, Chanda, Van Roost,
Amelie, Sandrine Testud, Conchita, Elena L, Rita Grande, Iva...

I think it was more of a factor from players who're from
the mid 1990's. The crew from the 90's were by far
classier.

Sorry folks.

Without a doubt, the classiest of all players would be Venus, Serena, Monica and Lindsay.

Venus does her nails during matches. I hardly call
that classy. Venus is a proud woman; but not
what I would call a gracious, generous, forgiving
player.


P.S No don't jump all over me just because I don't
see things the way you do. This thread is asking
for opinions.

It's got to be Conchita Martinez! I love it when she says "puta" during a match. None of that superficial shit. :D

I think Venus is a very classy lady.

Also Kim, Elena L. It doesn't mean that I like my other favs any less, but there is a special meaning to the word classy. It's everything: oncourt disposition, the way they treat other players, crowd.

This thread is just an excuse for people to list their faves. Some of the players mentioned are as far from classy as one can possibly get :rolleyes:

Monica is the example the rest can only hope to live up to. :angel:

Seriously, over the years I've briefly chatted with a lot of players post-match, watched and read a lot of interviews, and formed some strong opinions. I don't just throw out the word "classy" because while I would say the majority of them are "nice" for the most part..."classy" is a step above.

This a purely subjective thing. I think it would be extremely difficult to come to any consensus....Except perhaps about Monica. ;)

not true... 2 out of 3 players that I listed are not my faves... however, watching todays doubles I doubt that Kim belongs to this list...

ec, you're right... Monica definitely should be on this list
