Compared to Venus?? They are all gorgeous; they may not all have the most beautiful faces (remember they have little or no make up on court and their hair pulled back) but damn good bodies. Powder and paint makes a girl what she ain't!

Venus looked pretty hot in her skin sheer outfit a little while back.

She looks 'aight' in this new one. Not too bad, at least she getting some attention, without going too far.

We can say whatever the hell we want about them. Just because we cant make millions of dollars a year doesnt mean we are worthless human beings that dont deserve an opinion. A doctor, engineer, lawyer, etc. all have talents and are gifted individuals yet they dont ever get close to making the amount of money as the WS and other tennis players. These players are not gods and goddesses and neither are they above criticism. I couldn't careless about their million dollar pay checks.

This is a good response to that post. The fact that who makes what does not make them or their opinion better or worse than others and let me add that I respect what Serena and Venus have done to get where they are today. They come from a poor family, started tennis on a court where they had to step on broken beer bottles to get to the ball, but they had someone who believed in them and insisted they could succeed. And there is no doubt in my mind that there are numerous people in this world with more talent than today's top players but because of the circumstances either never picked up a racket as a pro or could not afford to follow up. They may watch tennis, write about it or even wander around forums like this so who are we to say that even their opinion has no value just because they are not making millions.

I don't know if debasing someone's appearance is exactly criticism. I understand that fashion and image are apart of an athletes life who has reached a certain level of prestige or fame... (which in a way counters the point that some have made the Venus essentially looks like a gargoyle)... but making 'ugly' comments is not necessary and ultimately makes the player look better in most people's eyes.

Obviously appearance, and how it is judged, is more of a factor when it comes to female athletes - which can be an advantage (i.e. Kournikova) or a disadvantage for them....
And Venus is certainly not as universally accepted as 'pretty' such as Sharapova is, but I don't see how anyone would not put her at least in the 'realm' of athletically attractive. I mean she has a very nice body - tall, lean, statuesque, great legs and overall shape (and at least she has some breasts).

Lets be real - have any of you seen her in blue jeans?

Nice to know that your reading comprehension is amazing... My point about no talent was directed soley towards tennis talent. My post was not directed towards doctors or lawyers, because they have talent specifically different from tennis. THIS IS A TENNIS BOARD, I was referencing their talent on tennis...

Most of them are current players. Pierce, Sanchez-Vicario, Capriati and Graf are former players. Kuzzy is Kuznetsova. Anyway, I was just wondering why people don't create threads to bash these players' looks. It's always the Williams Sisters, who are both cute to me, and never anyone else. I mean, Clijsters looks a lot like Princess Fiona, and not a peep.

The answer is simple. Those players you mention dont pretend to be seen as hot. On the other hand, both Venus and specially Serena have huge egos and both think they're beautiful, again specially Serena.

What? The issue is that Serena and Venus are often on this forum for their looks, while not one word is said about all these uglies. Serena and Venus look better than every last one on that list, imo. I think that they're very pretty. Different standards.
