Do they really sell sex? None of them are sexy like that. If for anything people tune in hoping for hell's chance of a good performance, not because they hope for a glimpse of upskirt:-?

Are you kidding? I'm going to opening day at Wimbledon tomorrow (can't wait!!!) and I am looking forward to seeing two things:

1) ATP players playing

and

2) WTA skirts, butt and legs


go figure...

He's right to a point. I've been on a show court and after Gasquet v Fish, Sharapova came on and emptied the place! Everyone went and looked on the outside courts only to come back when her match was over and Roddick was on. The last few games of her match that I saw were memorable only for the laughs she got from her stupid grunt.

This was also the same tournament that people watched Federer practice in their hundreds, only to move along to watch Ferrer practice when Federer's time was up and a top female came onto court next.

It's nothing personal against women, they just can't play tennis to the same standards as the men can. Why would you want to want Jankovic and Safina when you can have Federer and Nadal?

They can't play and they are not at all that attractive. With all of the grunting, shrieking, glares, they just don't look that attractive to me. The old days, female players, sure didn't hit the ball as hard, but they were at least attractive to look at, but now, man these female players seem like they can bench press their opponents with their screams.

I enjoyed watching players like Hingis and Henin and even Mauresmo for that matter. Couldn't stand Davenport however.


I just can't believe how one-dimensional the women's game is. If one player in the top ten can learn to just attack and approach the net, and use variety such as short angles, slices, and drop shots, she'll probably be number one and win slams consistently.

She added: ĎIíve never been one of the loudest grunters. I just play my game and sometimes I grunt and sometimes I donít. Iím not conscious when Iím doing it. Iím just zoned out. It doesnít really affect me if my opponent is [grunting].

Honestly, girls can wear anything and men will find it sexy. There's nothing Wimbledon can do to conceal a woman's sexuality. They try to use burqa's in some country and I'm sure there guys talk about a hot pair of eyeballs he saw earlier. I mean, what are some of the things men find sexy? Just about everything. Bikini? The opposite of what a librarian would wear and both are stereotypes of sexiness. Teacher? Nurse? Female cop? Submissive? Dominant? Everything in between. There's nothing that can be done.

It's a big turn-on for men to watch fit, attractive young women sweat and grunt while doing anything. It's about like mud wrestling in a sense.

The women's game is a bit boring at times. My favorite player to watch -- just for her game -- is Mauresmo. Henin also had an enjoyable game. Neither are big turn-ons to men.

I recall that the classic match between Capriati and Seles at the US Open (about 1990) had a wet T-shirt aspect to it. Seles didn't wear a bra at that time. Both women were slugging the cover off the ball, grunting and panting and sweating, their shirts utterly soaked, nipples obvious. It sounded like rough sex. Yeah, that was some raw sexuality for the guys watching. The tennis was one dimensional, but it was great entertainment.

Watching someone like Hantuchova play, especially in her hot outfits, takes the sex appeal to another level.

Check out women's beach volleyball. If that isn't about selling female sexuality, what is? They are great athletes, but standard uniform is a skimpy bikini.

And now they've come up with something called women's beach tennis. And sure enough, the women are pretty much required to have great T and A and wear bikinis. The skill level may be equivalent to 3.0 tennis.

And for the borderline child molesters there is always women's gymnastics.

Which makes me figure that the audience for women's basketball has to be mostly lesbians. Especially in the pro game. The WNBA has zero sex appeal for men. The women are all unappealing, and the basketball is not on par with a decent boy's high-school contest.

No wonder the WNBA is such a losing proposition.

Gasquetrules
06-21-2009, 08:27 PM
To be really honest, though, I do enjoy watching women's tennis. I just put the game into the perspective that I'm watching women athletes competing against each other and know that it doesn't compare to the speed, power and shotmaking of the men, nor the complexity of the game.

But still, I enjoy it a lot. And if the women are pretty or have great bodies and are fit and athletic, that just adds some spice to the mix.

Some of my all-time favorites (as far as their games and just being great competitors) are Graf, Hingis and Navratilova. Graf had some of the best legs ever on a woman, both for looks and just great wheels. Hingis had one of the most interesting games ever, and she was a real cutie first time out. Navratilova was just a great player. Period.

Today I enjoy watching Jankovic (game and personality and very fit), Demnetiava, Hantuchova, Patty Schnyder, and yes, Safina... warrior princess. I suppose I enjoy watching the women play because they are women. And I'm a man.

Wow what is this a **** size-comparison thread?

"I am so manly I cannot help but perv on the women" "all they are good for is looking at" "I cant wait to go and look up their skirts" blah blah blah

This is plain sexist, but I am guessing the guys who make these comments don't care and would not understand the word misogynist. If any of you have daughters think about how you are under selling their opportunities and worth by belittling women in this way. A few jokes here and there seems ok but some of the stuff here is way OTT.

The women's tour is in a slump in terms of interest. However that does not mean that it will stay this way. It needs a few dominant players to separate from the pack.

A couple of years ago (late 90s early 00s) there was a lot more personality in the women's game and it had equal if not more interest than the men's game. Just because women cannot attain the same performance levels as men does not mean that women's tennis cannot have equal value.

Wow what is this a **** size-comparison thread?

"I am so manly I cannot help but perv on the women" "all they are good for is looking at" "I cant wait to go and look up their skirts" blah blah blah

This is plain sexist, but I am guessing the guys who make these comments don't care and would not understand the word misogynist. If any of you have daughters think about how you are under selling their opportunities and worth by belittling women in this way. A few jokes here and there seems ok but some of the stuff here is way OTT.

The women's tour is in a slump in terms of interest. However that does not mean that it will stay this way. It needs a few dominant players to separate from the pack.

A couple of years ago (late 90s early 00s) there was a lot more personality in the women's game and it had equal if not more interest than the men's game. Just because women cannot attain the same performance levels as men does not mean that women's tennis cannot have equal value.

I suppose it's sexist but it doesn't change the fact that the only entertainment the WTA offers currently is sex appeal. I find Maria Kirilenko extremely beautiful and the only time I get to see her is (duh) when she's playing tennis. I find nothing about her game very striking, so if I didn't find her attractive I'd not watch her matches. however, if she was ever playing at the same time as, say, ANY male player, I'd watch the male. simple as that.

guess this is what has to happen since no one can stand watching womens tennis anymore

if you watched Henin play, it wasn't because of looks.
