Re: Most friendly tennis player?

Of the one's I've met/spoken to for more than 30 seconds:
1. Jonas of course :P
2. Alexander Popp
3. Simon Aspelin (debateable. He could also share first place with Jonas)
4. Wayne Ferreira!(retired), Niclas Larsson (wheelchair), or Brian Vahaly
5. Alex Bogomolov Jr / Filippo Volandri / PimPim

Other mentionable guys that have been polite & friendly:
Oli Rochus, Max Mirnyi (and his dad!), Todd Martin and Mats Wilander!

If I left anyone out, I prob haven't paid much attention to them.

Re: Most friendly tennis player?

I have to agree that Mariano Zabaleta has to be the nicest. Young Frenchman, Jérôme Haehnel is super nice. he even bent down to pick something up that i dropped, he is way friendly.

Re: Most friendly tennis player?

Mariano Zabaleta



Then my other choices would be:

Paradorn Srichaphan
Arnaud Clement
Juan Ignacio Chela
Gaston Gaudio (for his very helpful services )

Re: Most friendly tennis player?

Marcelo Rios

Of the current ones Alex Corretja, Mariano Zabaleta, Arnaud Di Pasquale, Gaston Gaudio, Younes El Ayanoui, Roger Federer and Guillermo Cañas.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

I forgot the Hippo Marat, he is a big friendly Hippo.

Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
