Robin Soderling

Showing good sportsmanship, Swedish tennis player Robin Soderling even asked the trainer to take care of opponent Rafael Nadal's blistered feet when the two squared off at Wimbledon in June. Presumably, this was before Nadal beat him with a score of 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (4), 6-1 -- and a lot of what Times writer Diane Pucin described as "guttural grunts ... cries of 'Vamos' accompanied by chest-thumping that seemed to make the seats rattle, and most of all his groundstrokes engineered to do nothing except hit the grass with a thunderous thud."
