Schiavone is very up and down in my experience.


All the players I've ever approached for an autograph or picture (there aren't that many) have been nice, except for Henin. But Flavia's the nicest hands down. Not just obliging, but making conversation and all. Just don't approach her after a loss.

Oh, and Esther Vergeer is great too. Very kind.

This refers to nicest players OFF COURT. What they do whe they play is irrelevant.

I agree about Isner too.
I never had a chance to approach Roger or Vika, though. I am wondering how their interaction with the fans looks like.

In fact I got her reaction on camera.


Haha! What a picture! I met her a couple of years ago. To me, she hasn't looked/acted like the person she used to be this year. Grumpier. So I can understand this scene at the Olympics

Other players who were quite nice: Rus, Stephens, Stosur

Re: Most fan friendly players

i once met Daniela Hantuchova, in Hamburg (long time ago)
and she was sooooooooo shy, i guess some people would think she is kind of arrogant, but it was shyness for sure
i asked her for a pic and she agreed

Re: Most fan friendly players

I dont know why anyone would try to bother players after they have lost a match, especially at a slam. Do you really expect them to be nice.

Oh, I forgot to mention an incident. When Ana was signing I accidentally dropped my marker and had no chance to recover it. To my surprise Ana picked it from the ground and gave it to me.

Another incident I had with Piotr Wozniacki. He was walking around the grounds and then I approached him and wanted to wish all good luck to Karolina in Polish. Somehow my brain went dumb and instead of saying good luck to Caro I said good luck to Agnieszka. He looked at me with surprise and walked away. I never felt so stupid. Till today I feel embarrassed whenever I think of that!

Hewitt was the worst after losing a match, and Ana was almost in tears after losing to Henin so she didn't want to hang around signing autographs.
You met Oudin too?

I met Likhovtseva at WTT and she was very nice. Kournikova couldn't be bothered to interact with any fans because she was on Mark Knowles' dick that night.

JJ always smiles if you say something to her when she signs things for you. Wozniacki is really nice too. Kuznetsova is by far the nicest player I've come across. She saw there were 4-5 people wanting her autograph while she was training at the AO on one of the outside courts, and said "20 minutes guys", and then she happily signed things when we came back.

Sharapova wasn't rude, but signing things was just another job for her. She at least stuck around after her AO 2008 R1 match against Kostanic Tosic to sign heaps of autographs. Vaidisova was a real beetch the two times I encountered her. 2007 AO 3R win against Srebotnik she cbf signing any autographs, despite only a handful of us cheering for her in the 37 degree sun. In 2006 just as she had finished training and she was signing autographs, she was nice and stopped to sign things at first, then someone yelled "Look! It's Sharapova!!" and at that point she didn't have a f*** to give and slutted her way off.

Dementieva, Myskina and Dokic were quite nice too.
