Re: Most fan friendly players

Lisicki is an absolute sweetheart with fans.

The one who I thought might be kind of a bitch was Dulko, but she is actually very kind and attentive to fans.

JJ is funny. She comes across as wanting to be icy, but she can't help but smile and chat if you approach her.

Begu is shy but nice, or at least that's my impression.

Re: Most fan friendly players

Only player I've approached for an autograph is Anna Chak. She scribbled indecipherably and seemed like she would rather have flushed me down a toilet than say anything to me
But I've read others say she is fan friendly so I'm writing it off as an off day

Sesil Karatantcheva from my very limited experience at tournaments. She's so friendly that literally everyone who talked to her felt like they'd known her forever.

Re: Most fan friendly players

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.

Re: Most fan friendly players

Schiavone, Clijsters and Petko Even though I like her, Robson wasn't too nice when I met her at the Aus Open this year. She won her 3rd qualifying round and there was a bunch of people waiting next to the court, but she seemed really rushed and a bit annoyed. Maybe an off-day.

Re: Most fan friendly players

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.

Schiavone was rather rude when some Italian fans asked her for an autograph at the Olympics. I mean, I know she'd just played a match but Pennetta obliged and it would have been nice to show some gratitude as they've probably traveled from Italy to see them.

In fact I got her reaction on camera.

Re: Most fan friendly players

Nicest player I've met is Djokovic. By far.
Followed by Henin () Dellacqua, Stosur, Isner and Oudin.

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.

Re: Most fan friendly players

I also observed Novak is very friendly with the fans. He takes all the time to make sure no fan is left out. And he does it with smile and patience.
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.

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!

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.

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
