    Does tennis have the best role models of any sport?

    "The depressing thing about tennis is that no matter how good I get, Ill never be as good as a wall."

    "Whoever said, Its not whether you win or lose that counts, probably lost."

    I am going to say yes, but I am also going to add golf to the list. Tennis players tend to be a little quirky, but not in a bad way. They are rarely, if ever, in the news for driving under the influence, carrying guns, getting in fights. They tend to act a bit more reserved and, most of the time, are very cordial to their fans. Golfers seem to be the same way. With the exception of the recent Tiger Woods scandal and John "Wild Man" Daly, the guys and gals on the golf tours are extremely nice and respectful people. I have heard stories of how nice and respectful Daly and Woods are and I actually believe it. I heard that Tiger had a drawing for a full round of golf with him at a major course and some 12 year old won it who had never played golf. The story goes that he played a full 18 holes with the boy and really had a good time and took the time to really try and show him how to play. Heard that he and the boy were all smiles the entire time. Tiger may have goofed in a bad way with his marriage, but he is certainly not bad in every area. None of the sports are perfect. All of them have their scandals and prima donnas.....

    i have to agree. however, because they are more reserved and respectable, i think they don't get the role model role like they should.
