Where to live? Need suggestions (Chicago)

Hi all:
I am moving to Chicago, and I have no clue where to live, my job is near the airport and I will have a car. So I don't know if downtown is a good option (I heard that the traffiic is terrible there), or to choose something near my job.
In one hand I don't want to spend hours and hours driving, but on the other hand I don't want to live in the middle of nowhere. I am single and I will live on my own, so I want a safe place, I love playing sports, so if I have a nice park and tennis facilities nearby will be a plus, and I prefer don't spend my whole salary on the rent, but have no clue about prices too...
Any idea suggestion, where is a nice affordable place to live?
Thanks all!
