Amelie should be in there somewhere. She is always so sweet and thoughtful in everything she says.

how do you know who is nice when you haven't met the entire WTA? None of us know these players personally....except for Tammy's big sister.

Well, you can tell a bit from the way they present themselves in public, deal with fans (word gets round), try to relate to their fan base on their web sites, and just by their general demeanour.

Admittedly, you can't take it too far. Those who really know them such as lovers, relatives and close personal friends may have an entirely different perspective on all or any of them.

I would think majority of the players are nice. Sometimes we think someone is a bitch because she has that kind of attitude on the court. Whats on the court that doesnt really mean there a bitch in real life, it just shows how intense they are in a match.

True, but you can get a pretty good idea from their interveiws and the wat they treat fans. Then again, the media can often push a player to seem their worst :rolleyes:
I think most tennis players seem really nice, but these ones particually stand out to me as really sweet.

1. Alicia Molik (she's really down to earth and just plain nice)
2. Kim Clijsters (just oozes with sweetness)
3. Venus Williams (so gracious and lovely)
4. Monica Seles (she seems to be a really really nice person)
5. Most others players, I guess (exept for a few who seem downright nasty)

:wavey: Terrific List...I guess it's hard when they have cameras shoved in their face to get a real perception :D Going on what I have seen...

1. Kim....(Sends letters to Tourney Directors thanking them for having her in their tourney.....it's so sweet)

2. Alicia (As above...watched her play at Aus Open....accidentally knocked a spectator and put her hand on their shoulder and appologised...very genuine)

3. Venus (At a time when Australia was in Bushfire crisis...her speech was brilliant)

4. Dead Heat between Tanasugarn (does she ever stop smiling??) and Amy Frazier (I just like her because she was my first Autograph....I thought crikey she's tall)

5. Nicole Pratt (Pratty) for trying to get Jelena back in the Fed-Cup team (sorry had to have one selfish one...but she's a cool chick too )

what a surprise!!everyone says that the nicest are own faves!! :angel:

Granted, I have my faves on the list, but they are my faves because I think that they are nice! But also, I have some non-faves on the list. For instance, Kim Clijsters...she is undisputedly nice. She is always level-headed, mellow and just a decent girl. I have seen her play five times live. Each time, she is always gracious and polite. In the BOWC final, she especially thanked the ballboys and ballgirls in her runner-up speech. That's cool.

Also, Monica (although I do love her), she is undisputedly nice. I've seen her play a dozen times and EACH time, I've gotten an autograph from her! She tirelessly signs autographs for her fans. She talks to them. She never seems fussed or put off (something that I've noticed in Serena Williams...she also signs a ton of autographs). And to note, four times that I got Monica's autograph, she LOST the match! But she still paid respect to her fans who wanted an extra something from her. That is NICE!

Venus Williams is always gracious! She doesn't diss her opponents or other players. In her speeches (when she wins tournies) she always thanks the sponsors, organisers, fans, etc. She is really quite tender and sweet.

Alicia Molik. :kiss:

Rita Grande. She is candid and sweet. She says it like it is and goes out there and is herself and is real. She's a pleasure to watch and a pleasure to support. She's nice!!!

So those are my reasonings. But like I said, they are all nice, I love them all and I wish all the ladies well!!! :angel:

Only 5?

Based on my experiences I would say Serena, Meghann, Bovina, Kim, Daja, Myskina, Patricia Tarabini, and Jana Kandaar. :cool:

Steffica Greles
Apr 10th, 2003, 04:31 PM
"Nice"? What does that mean?

I hate to be called "nice" because it's meaningless. It's more important to be respected for who you are - and then you will be liked.

Being "nice" is skin deep.

The reason I say all this is because this is a difficult question to answer: what do we define as "nice"?

Undisputed Kim and Monica, I have heard way too many stories for all of them to be fabricated. Speaking of Monica, did you all read her interview in Tennis magazine (she's on the cover)? Talk about an *amazing* person and player. This is why I admire these two so much - they are good at what they do, they love what they do, they never take for granted the position they are in, and they treat people as all people should be treated.

Now, has anyone actually had any interaction with any of the WTA players? Any bad experiences with snobby, impatient, rude players? For some reason (actually there are plenty of reasons), Jen Cap strikes me as potentially ungracious and intolerant.

Certainly not the father of Kim Clijsters.

Every time he opens his mouth, he makes me angry (I hate the fact that he tries to push Kim to adopt the Australian nationality) and he has way too much influence on Kim.

Belgian journalists really hate his guts.

Maybe so, but until he plays his first match, I refuse to consider him a WTA player. ;)

I'm not so sure :). I must say that I sometimes think "Oh, man, what are you saying now?" but I think Kim is who she is because of her father. He's a really down-to-earth man. And anyway, Kim is 19 already, she doesn't have to listen to him...but she mostly does.

Anyway I pick Kim as the nicest player on the tour, not only because she's my favourite. I like watching Justine too, but I don't really like her as a person. And Lindsay Davenport is a really nice person too! I like her most of all American players. :worship:
