KRAKOW, Poland - It was a big year for both of the Radwanska sisters - Agnieszka made her first Grand Slam final and went as high as No.2 in the world, Urszula made her first WTA final and broke the Top 30 - but when it comes down to helping others, neither one has let her success get in the way.

For the fourth year in a row the sisters took some time out during the off-season to help out in Poland's Szlachetna Paczka - or "Noble Box" - a charity that sees volunteers go door to door throughout the year compiling a database of families in distress, asking them what would help ease the pressures of the holidays, then, for a three week period from mid-November, donors are given a list of needs to take with them to a supermarket, where they fill a shopping cart with the desired food, household items, clothing and more to donate to them.

This year, the Radwanskas decided to support two single-mother families along with several of their children from their hometown in Krakow, Poland.

"These families are in a particularly difficult situation, because a single mother cares for all of her children and they really need some help," Agnieszka said.

"The shopping list was very long, but we weren't concerned about that or the money - all we wanted for these people was to maintain basic living standards, especially in the Christmas season," Urszula said. "That was our only focus."

"When we were asked a few years ago we didn't have to think long - it's a great joy to be able to help, especially during the holidays," Agnieszka added.

The Radwanskas will spend Christmas Eve in Krakow before leaving for the other side of the world the next morning to prepare for Week 1 of the new season - Urszula Radwanska is playing in Brisbane, Australia, while Agnieszka Radwanska will be playing in Auckland, New Zealand.

The Noble Box project was recently supported by Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid - it also received a special blessing from Pope Benedict XVI.

It is at least the third time it's been posted, and it probably should go to their player's forum, if they have one. :yeah:

Doesn't really matter. There are countless threads about how much everyone hates Maria, Serena, Caro, Vika, Aga or whoever. Although the thread titles may be different each time, it doesn't take a genius to figure out what they are really about or what they will end up being about. At least this is something positive for a change.

Agnieszka and Urszula :clap2: :yeah:

Yes.

I second Chrissie-fan post. Are you going to be equally consistent with countless hate/love GM threads also? Trollish hate threads bloom and succeed in infinite numbers with no admin reaction, while anything positive must be pushed aside? Or maybe insulting is an admin-imposed requirement on those boards, while anything positive is regarded as trollish? Is this true?
How many times was I called a troll for trying to make others caption posted photos? To help others identify them. So maybe I am correct in trollish foundation of those boards?
