James Blake in LA, right after he shaved his head for the first time (I think). He actually does seem like a nice dude, the same as how the media portrayed him.

I assume u mean outside the tennis grounds?!

I met Nadal in the changing rooms at Abercrombie and Fitch in NY (2006). He was nice, I asked for a signature

Although his engl was very bad at this time, he smiled not talked;

Default Re: Have you ever personally met a player?

Ancic - nice but reserved
Rafa - when he wasnt a superstar yet - very friendly
Magnus Gustafsson - nicest guy I have ever met
Sampras - friendly but quiet
Andrew Ilie - funny guy
Gonzalez - friendly chatty
Michael Chang - quiet and reserved
Mark Ph - fun guy, very outgoing and friendly
Schalken - likeable and friendly
Spadea - reserved at first, then quite chatty
Canas - I asked for a autograph (for a friend) in a restaurant, he was nice about it.

Not a single player has been unfriendly in any way, then again I havent walked up to Rios or Kafelnikov after a 5 set loss in a GS.

Default Re: Have you ever personally met a player?

A lot if ex college players who are in the lower pro levels. None that would be on interest to people here.

Highest ranked player I have ever met is Danai Udomchoke. He didn't talk much but seemed nice.

I am going to meet Falla this summer when he comes to a local camp.
