Considering how ugly things can get on this message board - I would be interested in knowing who you think displays the best sportsmanship on the WTA tour. I know that a lot of you would nominate Kim Clijsters.....and I would agree. However I always like to see Ai Sugiyama play because she always seems to keep positive throughout her matches. She also seems to have a genuine smile when shaking hands after a match...regardless if she has won or not. It's a nice change from all the prima donnas on tour.

Venus Williams.

When she plays she gives it her all always remains positive and states kind words in defeat.

Lindsay is a terrible, when she is playing the sport she sulks ad looks pathetic. She is cool off the court but while playing she exudes UNSPORTMANSHIP like behavior. She won't even try for balls.

Venus Williams and Seles hands down. They give 100% on the court and are gracious off the court.

The truth is that they aren't!

In the past Venus would let you know it as well.
However, as she has matured, she gives her opponents credit when she does and doesn't win. Also, Venus hasone of the best if not the best attitudes on court.

I don't know if anyone caught it but I was being sarcastic about Lindsay having good sportsmanship. It looks like if she makes another UFE she will just quit the sport and never come back. Off court she seems to be a class act though.

I guess because 9/10 times she
kicks the crap out of your favorites! ;)

It's widely known that Venus isn't very talkative with players outside of Serena or Alexandra. Venus is an introvert that can at times be precieved as aloofness or arrogance, but that's just Venus and it doesn't make her a bad person or a sport, so get off of it! :p

Her on-court ettiqette is impecable,
wasn't it Venus who waved with a smile on her face to a French crowd
that was booing her as she left the court?!? :angel:

Venus is the Queen!!!

I think Venus Williams. She's always gracious, and the Belgian crowd loves to see her play at the Proximus Diamond Games (although the organizers probably hope she will not win a 3rd time because they would have to give her the diamond racket then ;) )
