    Since Alize Cornet played in the Hopman Cup with a somehow sexy outfit all the tennis aurthorities have decided to fine every player (EVEN MEN?) who appears on the court with what they would consider a sexy outfit.So Tennis has become a censored sport in which outfits are more important than the quality of tennis which is played.
    I think that up to now outfits have been ok and updated to the actual circumstances of fashion and comfort in playing.
    From now onwards I guess that the tennis female players will have to dress in some fashion as the nuns do and male will need to wear the priest's clothing.
    The associations always are surprising the fans with their decisions.In this case a ridiculous one which puts in evidence that some of their directive members are peoples of old concepts on what the sport is concerned.
    The complete info can be read (unfortunately in Spanish) in the follwing address:
    http://ar.sports.yahoo.com/14012009/43/d-sports-tenistas-sexys-1000-euros-castigo.html
    What do you think about this topic?
    Thanks for reading...

    Tennis is a sport where players have more freedom about the way they are dressed but there are also limits. Although i don't think Alize Cornet's is beyond normal. There are other female players who can get overboard with their outfits. Tennis is a professional sport and for its reputation, the players have to present themselves profesionally.

    Marpiw: despite our previous discussions, i must say i am with you on this one. the whole thing is preposterous. Alize's outfit is actually very nice and i have seen far worse on Serena and Bethanie...

    It would be sexist just to fine women over their dress code.

    What a joke. Would the IOC ever issue fines for skimpy 100m athletics outfits?

    At least the 1000 Euro fine is a bargain in terms of the publicity it will buy for Alise.

    I feel bad for her, getting a whole bunch of unneeded attention from authorities that never had sex in their life.

    OMG! What a shame! With so many good looking women on the tour ITF should ASK them to dress as sexy as possible.
    Then ATP wonders why tennis is ranked 27 in USA.

    If that's true, how can the organization of that tournament be so retarded.

    They must be desperate for cash, I mean what objective consensual definition are they gonna find for "sexy"? :rolleyes: (At least now I understand why Rafa gave up the sleeveless, he probably was in grave danger of being banned from the tour for unbearable level of sexiness :???:)

    Venus Williams wears sjorts that barely cover the connection between her thigh and waste-bones.

    They don't fine her!

    All the female field athletes wear the skimpiest clothes. Look at the avatar for Oranges.

    In the name of good manners, morality, family, justice and global peace I sincerely support such sensible decision from their holiness authorities. Problem is that maybe people would start to find sexy woman's (and men) knees so I think a full robe and accessory mask is in order.
    Everybody should look at this girl as a role model in terms of tennis fashion

    PS: nothing against this girl really, she seems like a nice person.

    I think you would also suggest that the headquarters of the tennis associations should be moved from their actual locations to some office in the Vatican in which the Holy Mother Church could exert some control over the outfits and the manners of the tennis players...and all should be blessed by His Holiness The Pope Benedict XVI...WOW!!!! WHAT A SPEECH!!!...but I think they are not interested in the subject because they have lots of more important things to do...so you are left alone to suffer this Sports Inferno that are the Tennis Tournaments...POOR BOY!!!
    Personally I dont want to see nuns and priests playing Tennis...I want to see the players that are now in the circuit... never mind the outfit...

    What would a man have to wear for it to be considered too sexy?

    i don't believe that article (which is no longer there)
    I would have believed it if it had stated that some puritan american tennis organization started this but the europeans, they are too liberal minded to pursue such a thing :)

    Heh, sorry about that. (Not that there's anything wrong with it.) ;) I just thought you might have found Rafter in your underwear search.

    I find that Cornet is sexy, and the her outfit is also sexy, and that's the way it should be. If anything they should ban people who wear un-sexy clothes....and reward people who wear nice looking stuff.

    Link to sports rankings in the USA?
    And wtf at the fine, that outfit isn't even bad! Our girls tennis team outfits were probably 'sexier'!
