I just logged onto the TW home page, and what do I see? A huge pic of Daniela Hantuchova in these awful pants or shorts that are riding way below her belly button, barely covering her pubic area.

I'm sorry, but this is not sexy or appropriate attire. Pull your pants up and look like a dignified, respectful young woman and a serious athlete. I wish the WTA would implement some kind of dress code. This is getting outrageous.

vllockhart, I just opened up your post, and what do I see? A tiny pic of huge Serena Williams in this aweful Nike outfit that is barely covering her double d's.

I'm sorry, but this is not sexy or appropriate attire. Go on a diet, get in shape, and look like a dignified, respectful young woman and a serious athlete.......you know the rest

Oh, Adely that sounds incredibly nasty. I am sorry that you laid eyes upon such a site. I must ask you, are you sure it wasn't a photo of Oracene? Serena is looking more and more like her and it is easy to mistake one for the other.

Uh, that picture of Serena is when she is in excellent shape, so I'm not getting you on that point.

However, yes, she does need to cover up WAY WAY WAY more. I love that pic because of the intensity of it and the moment in time.

The whole trend of the women wearing less and less and trying to look sexy on the court is unacceptable to me. The Hantuchova picture is a microcosm of the problem.

It's a shame that you're trying to use Serena to insult me or make my point not seem valid. You missed.

I agree with this (and so does my husband, he walked away from Daniela and Myskina matches during the AO). It is time for the WTA to require tasteful clothing with waistlines at or above the top of the hipbones. Thanks to Nike and LaCoste, the women's clothes have gotten very tacky in the last few years and most of them have not been flattering (and that includes any type of shorts put on Serena's hefty frame). What an uproar we had a few years ago when a few men went sleeveless, but some of the women go on court for matches wearing less material than it takes to make two dinner napkins and there is barely a peep.

Good point about the men's sleeveless shirts. Thank God the men have that option open to them. It surprises me that more don't take advantage of it. I can't stand to play in a t shirt or polo type shirt like so many players. It is so uncomfortable and restricting to have sleeves when it is hot outside. It drives me crazy to watch roddick pinch his sleeves and pick them up when he is about to serve. I just want to scream in his ear, "yes, sleeves are uncomfortable when you sweat. Instead of letting it distract you(and it clearly does) switch to a sleeveless shirt." Bravo to Moya, Ginepri, Hewitt, Nadal and Blake for doing the sensible thing. In the case of the men, it is even more about comfort than style. Here is a thought: Imagine if the men became as revealing as the women. They would only have to cover their "private parts", like the women, so they would only have to wear bikini bathing suits. Nadal, Ginepri, moya...could just wear speedos, no shirt. I mean if the women can wear the ultra-revealing outfits that just barely cover their breasts and "nether regions" then the men should be allowed to barely cover their "nether regions". Bikini briefs, speedos...should be ok for the men. Otherwise, some very specific dress codes need to be enforced. It is not right to permit the women to wear next to nothing and the men only have the sleeveless option.

The point is, these are talented women that rely on their skills on the tennis court, not their looks. They can wear whatever they wish; they're not a Britney Spears or whomever who's very possibly told what to wear to attract sales.
I'm sure I don't have to tell you this: Women like to be sexy so they wear the latest trends. Yes the trends are set by a man. But a gay man, to be sure!
So, if they're comfortable playing in attire like this, then I'm comfortable watching them in it.

I don't know why everyone here likes her. She has that anorexic look, not just in her hips but in her face. Benesova on the other hand can wear her skirts as low as she likes. Or just take the skirt off altogether and have a pillow fight after the match.

Fee - I think your husband was "being nice" because you were with him....;)

Please, my husband and I don't have those kinds of secrets. I know what he finds attractive and vice versa. He recognizes that Hantuchova is a fit and attractive woman, but the clothes were inappropriate (and in his opinion, not flattering to her figure). He thought Benesova looked cheap and s.l.u.t.ty, and asked me if she was a lousy player trying to get attention in some other way.

Adely, the clothing companies are very 'persuasive' when it comes to what their contracted players wear on court. If they weren't, do you really think that women would go on court wearing the same outfit as their opponents? Do you remember a few years ago when all the male adidas players (about 8 of them) wore the same white shirt with the blue diagonal stripe across the chest? I seriously doubt that was their idea.

I admit. I look. And I enjoy the minimal clothing on the women. But in spite of that, it may have gone too far. This is first and foremost an athletic contest among some terrific athletes. We don't need the outrageous clothing (or should I say lack of clothing). The code should be to dress tastfully. Nude bellys and hips should not be allowed - maybe a little midriff would be OK. But girls, please don't hide those wonderfully athletic female bodies too much. Don't go "baggy" my any means.

I agree, they should be playing in full pantsuites, I find hot chicks in skimpy clothes absolutely disgusting. They should play outdoors in the cold weather countries in the winter so these nasty creatures would have no choice but to cover up. Down ski jackets, mittens, and really baggy ski bibs would be more appropriate.

Maybe it's just getting old. But I find the low riding clothes women wear in general to be ugly. 90% of the women who wear that type of pants, or skirt, or shorts, have too much stumach to pull it off.
Most of the WTA players are fit enough, but I simply don't like the style.

What, you fancy yourself to be some kind of fashion police? You don't like looking at her, then go look at someone else. It's called freedom of choice. People like you used to beetch and moan about male ballet dancers in tights and who knows what else. Always complaining.

Yeah. After reading through the thread again, I am having second thoughts about my earlier post. After all, in acient Greece the athletes did perform naked. So nakedness and athletic contest went together as long ago as then. However, I think in acient Greece, it was only male athletes - I don't think women did sport then.

Dude, get a brain.

It's a shame you so off-handedly dismissed his "get a life" point, because although terse, it was actually insightful.

One's life shouldn't be a strangled thing, imprisoned by puritanical fundamentalist morals. What those like you live is a crude shadow of a life, devoid of appreciation for the beauty all around you. He was being genuinely helpful in offering you kind advice, and you blew it off. Tragic and shortsighted. But typical. Say hi to Deuce at the next revival.

But the greater crime, of course, is in trying to spew your puritanical fundamentalist morals onto and into everyone else's lives. When a beautiful, lithe, limber, athletic young female chooses to liberate her spirit and her body by displaying it thusly for all the world, she is living a life of beauty and freedom, and allowing those who view her to live that way as well. Quit thumping your bible or your koran or whatever, and grow up. Nobody else this side of Tehran has the slightest interest in your cult morality. If you want to live a life of restraint and asocial asceticism, stay in your little box-world where the evils of the world can't bother you, and you can't bother the world. That's why they invented monasteries. So prudes wouldn't have to live in a world they can't handle, and the world doesn't have to live with prudes. It's win-win.

So I reiterate his advice for you: "get a life." Even if that means sinking yourself into isolation in pursuit of deeper understanding of your spiritual morality. Just don't keep butting heads with reality. Otherwise you end up a curmudgeon, shouting about the fragile psyches of children in a world where people have to be embarrassed by things like their own abdomens.

I wouldn't mind I suppose. I see a lot of women at my club, even if they are fit, who dress in scabby old shorts and t-shirts. I reckon it would be nice if they wore something that actually accentuated the fact that they are women. The women who do wear skirts, dresses or outfits like Daniela are just a bit more appealing. It's not a sexist thing (I'm very much for women's rights), but it is just nice to see women on the court wearing something fetching. I'm sure that the ladies out there would agree that it is nicer if the men on court were wearing something other than an old t-shirt and baggy shorts.

As you know, there are still many thousands of people who are homeless after the big earthquake in the Hindu Kush region. There are not enough clothing and shelter to keep them warm during the harsh winter months.

Some of the more noble and caring young female professional tenins players have asked their clothing sponsor to donate the fabrics that would have gone into their clothes to the relief efforts. As a result, they would have to make do with rather skimpy outfits made from scraps of fabrics found in dumpsters outside the textile factories in China. We should recognize their sacrifice, as the ozone layer deplete and the sun beats hard on their now silky smooth, goldenly tanned limbs and midsections, we know that they are increasing their chances of skin cancer but they trooper on for the good of their fellow human beings. (sniff, sniff, I need a tissue)

Thus far, the total fabric donation has enabled the construction of five lacy thongs. It is a small step, however, the longest journey begins with one single step. It is hoped that with continued fabric donations, eventually the Red Crescent will be able to knit together one X-Small sweat pant. This pant should be completed by 2010.

An additional unexpected benefit was that their photographs on the internet has enabled mainly, but not exclusively, men to turn down their home thermostats, thereby conserving precious fuel. To achieve such a saving in energy cost, thereby reducing the production of green house gases, one need to bring up a picture of these players and studiously study every inch of them, the physiological effects that should takes place are a warm pleasant feeling, increase blood flow to strategically critical portions of the body, and a desire to be more physical "active".

President Bush has chastised Americans as being too addicted on Oil. Here is one small step that we can take globally to reduce our addiction to that wicked lubricant. There are better lubricants to be addicted to. Where is my jar of ......

To Ms. Hantuchova, keep up the good work, I support your sacrifice, and if I may suggest, you can be even more vigorous in your shaving of fabrics. I fear that winter has finally arrived on the American North East. brrrr..... I need a tissue

On the contrary, those of us who choose not to view girls in such a "free and beautiful" way are the ones upholding beauty. I have no argument whatsoever that Daniela is absolutely gorgeous, because she is. And I would add that the female body is likely the most beautiful creation we know. The problem is not necessarily in viewing these girls, but rather what happens when we do. Its no secret that 100% of the guys who look at Daniela begin to lust after her. And what does that promote? sexual prominisuity and a loose lifestyle.

At this point, I'm sure you're steaming in your head and getting ready to pounce on the 'quote' button and thrash me to shreds because of my "Fundamentalist, Bible-thumping, cultish worldview." Before you do, please consider what I have to say.

The real beauty in this is the ability to come close to another person of the opposite sex, not just physically, but emotionally and spiritually as well. Sex is not the end-all goal of a relationship. It is not the all-satisfying desire in life. Rather, it is a byproduct of real intimacy with somebody you love and cherish with all your heart.

Once we get this sort of view, it is easy to see the real issue behind these clothes. These clothes will naturally lead many guys into an adulterous lifestlye (or at least a step in that direction) that is far from true intimacy. Instead of a true, loving and lasting relationship at the center of your desire, sex becomes the goal. And ultimately, sex does not fulfill what we are all yearning for. In that respect, those of us willing not to view scampily clad teens or the sexual images all around us are upholding real beauty -- an intimate, loving and lasting relationship, where sex can be enjoyed as a byproduct of something greater.

It's a shame you so off-handedly dismissed his "get a life" point...And it's a shame you so cavalierly succumbed to employing a cheap and transparent debate tactic against vllockhart, namely the Straw Man. You could not dismantle her arguments based on their merits. You resorted to grossly exaggerating her POV with assertions of "puritanical fundamentalist morals." (Your use of which, leads me to believe you know little about the Puritans or Christian fundamentalism. But it surely was a catchy phrase to throw around, huh?)

... although terse, it was actually insightful.Terse? Yes. "Insightful"??? Hardly.

... He was being genuinely helpful in offering you kind advice... Geez! You appointed yourself vllockhart's Counselor, her superior, and a clarvoiyant ... all in one paragraph. (His "kind advice" was nothing of the sort.)

Ah! To be so ... enlightened as Grimjack. What a lofty aspiration. (Phooey!)

But the greater crime, of course, is in trying to spew your puritanical fundamentalist morals onto and into everyone else's lives.Crime? Spew? Everyone? Stop taking yourself so seriously, Grimjack. This is a silly Internet forum, for goodness sake!

When a beautiful, lithe, limber, athletic young female chooses to liberate her spirit and her body by displaying it thusly for all the world, she is living a life of beauty and freedom, and allowing those who view her to live that way as well.Can't you just hear We Are The World in the background of this supercilious nonsense??? Good grief!

Quit thumping your bible or your koran or whatever, and grow up. Nobody else this side of Tehran has the slightest interest in your cult morality....Straw Men, all. Too bad you couldn't address her points head-on....

... That's why they invented monasteries.No it isn't.

Grimjack - Your ... treatise ... on the benefits of the libertine lifestyle might be persuasive to amoral or immoral folks (or pre-pubescents and those with the mindset of the "dirty old man.") As for me, I'm far more in vllockhart's camp.

On this issue, I am a libertarian. Why should we dictate how people dress? Sheezh...we have so little control over our lives as it is what with Big Brother telling us what to do and where to go and how far and how fast and which way....I won't even get into evesdropping, the mess at every airport when you want to fly, opened postal packages, etc. Since the '50's we've lost more liberties than the Russkies got post Cold War.

Didn't see Daniela's pic but I saw Benesova's outfit at the AO. At first I thought "Doesn't she have a sponsor?" Her tiny black top and that belt she thought was skirt looked like something you bought on a clearance sale and put over your swim suit when going to the beach. I don't care if that's her way to get attention, but I didn't like those clothes cause they didn't look like "sports clothes".

I think Daniela Hantuchova's outfit is just fine. I think it looks good and not vulgar or innapropiate as other might think. My girlfriend wears very small shorts when playing tennis as well and I don't mind. I think they look good and the very last thing that crosses my mind when I see shorts like these is vulgarity. I see many girls of all levels wearing shorts like these or tight outfits and to me it is normal.

If you are 30 or older, are married or have children and you don't like those shorts, well that is because of your age and not because they are innapropiate. As we all know older people always think they are right and think their ideas or views are correct.

We could say that this is part of evolution. views change with time and so does the clothing. In the future this kind of clothing will be laughable just like the clothing of past looks silly to the new generation.

Second, the strawman argument was FUNNY, but if you don't like it - how about this one - those objectionable outfits are actually MORE functional than traditional attire like skirts or dresses, not less. That's taking your athletics seriously.

Third, you tennis elders can't have it both ways. Either you want the generations after you to take an interest and keep the sport alive - or you don't. That interest REQUIRES that they take the sport and change it into a form that suits them more than it suits you. If that form happens to be one you like (clothes/playing style/rackets/whatever), lucky you. Otherwise - tough cookies. Get over it.

I am 25 so I am no longer a "young" man and do not think I am right all the time, but young and older people do have different views on fashion and other things.
Older people do tend to think that what young people do, wear, think, etc... is just not right. It is common knowledge, although we can not generalize because not all older people think alike. The outfits nowadays are normal for young people, whereas older people would simply say that in their days nobody wore outfits like that, etc...

It's just a matter of personal taste. I think Daniella looks a little *****y and Benesova looked extremely *****y, but that's just my taste. I prefer Graf in a tigh short skirt like she used to wear with her butt and legs, but not a skirt so short that she's looks trashy, but if Daniela wants to wear, then wear it. She still looks pretty good in anything she wears. Golovin on the other hand looks like a joke, like she lost a bet and has to go out and dress to look as ugly as possible. The one time she wore a tennis dress she looked really pretty, but with that ridiculous non-skirt she just shows everyone she has no butt and I'd prefer to ignorantly think that she did.

Ronaldo: Really, man, why bother to dignify that with a response? :) If female volleyball players aren't hot, who is? Good grief, like this stuff should even be an issue. Sex sells and it isn't news and this "sex" is hardly tawdry or ugly, nor does it demean women. What next? "I object to the sun rising in the East, because it is soooooo HOT."

I think the OP is trying to inflate his post count.

Girls like Sharapova, Hantuchova, Kirilenko, Golovin are really hot and can pull off wearing the short shorts and skirts and things of that nature. However, the Williams sisters, especially Serena, look disgusting.

I agree, but you forgot Samantha Stosur! She certainly has the bod to pull it off too!!

are those clothes really so shocking???? Some here talk as if it's a sin to wear those, but maybe I'm still to young...all I can say is: I don't care what they wear as long as it's comfortable for them and I haven't heard otherwise yet! It really isn't shocking. What Chris Evert (http://www.opentespi.it/immagini/desktop/03-Grandi%20campionesse/Evert%20Chris%2002.JPG) wore in the 70's was wayyyyy more blatantly sexual IMO.

This girl once told me that her dad wouldn't allow her to wear a swimsuit, not even a one piece, to the swimming pool and beach. She was forced to wear a long t-shirt over it all. She told me this in the context of how controlling her father was. I thought it was pretty creepy. At some point a person can get so fixated on other people being sexually aroused by their 9 year old daughter (she was forced to do this until around 15 or so) that you have to wonder in the same way you wonder about a guy who's constantly talking about how bad homosexuals are and how much he loves women. :(

(Chrissie was never one of my favorites.) Evert was very "Media savvy." She knew how to protect and promote her image of wholesomeness. I remember nothing of her being called "blatantly sexual." (This, despite the fact that she actually was quite ... bawdy ... when her guard was down.)

This soft core porn pic not withstanding, they look horrid because they wear the worst bathing suits ever. You would think women that long and lean and toned could not look bad in a suit, but low and behold, they do.

Their suits try to be as tiny as possible, riding way below the naval and as high under the breasts as they can be. This leaves an unnaturally long looking expanse of skin showing. Less is not always more. Sometimes more is more. If they wore some nicely cut suits that accentuated a woman's natural curves, they'd look as hot as you guys think they do.

Good points; Wholly cow. I just read some of the posts in this thread and it seems like we are living in Saudi or something ;) Deal with it! It is a girl wearing shorts playing tennis. I would hate to be with some of you at the beach??!! I just read an article that a "watered down" version of the play "Grease" was banned from a high school in Missouri because of letters from 3 members of a church in town. They also banned the "Crucible" play. This stuff is laughable, but unfortunately true.

You're kidding, right? (Chrissie was never one of my favorites.) No, I'm not kidding. I'm talking about that picture in particular, and others I've seen from that era. Short shorts is nothing compared to a super short skirt that shows off your underwear. For instance, at a summer camp, wearing short shorts is no big deal for girls, but if a girl were to wear what Chris is wearing in that picture, somebody would have a long talk with her.

Hantuchova's Nike shorts are great. Generally I don't like these low waistlines, but with these nicely designed shorts, I won't complain. Some people might object aesthetically, but I don't get the awful moralizing. If you don't like to see skin and bones, alright, I understand that. But there's nothing bad or indecent going on here.

Even though I agree that it's sad and possibly a bad side effect of the media exposure of role models like Hantuchova that many girls think they have to be superslim - that's a serious issue. But there is beautifully designed apparel for "normally" built women, too.

Oh, I forgot something: did you ever look at how tight and short John McEnroe's (and other guys') tennis shorts were back in the eighties? Did you ever see a woman walk away in disgust?

I just logged onto the TW home page, and what do I see? A huge pic of Daniela Hantuchova in these awful pants or shorts that are riding way below her belly button, barely covering her pubic area.

I'm sorry, but this is not sexy or appropriate attire. Pull your pants up and look like a dignified, respectful young woman and a serious athlete. I wish the WTA would implement some kind of dress code. This is getting outrageous.

Yes, this is definitely more representative of a dignified, respectful young woman, and serious athlete.

It's incredible how some men even now in 2006 thinks they are entitled to control women.
Hantuchova is a grown woman. I think she can decide for her self.
I hear no one complain about the outfits of sumowrestlers or male swimmers. When you're complaining about the way women dress it's sexism pure and simple.
Another thing is the rules in volleyball FORCING the women to wear skimpy outfits.

KK is right, men and women wear beachwear for "beach" volleyball because it is "comfortable". I have played volleyball, indoors and beach, and comfort on the beach, in the heat, is important.
