    Hopefully her career takes a turn for the better if not there won't be a platform for her to showcase the clothing at all.

    Shes done...I really think she will never make it to a slam final again.

    Same for Maria, Dinara, and Chrissy.

    Interesting, not so successful career and getting a lifetime contract?

    Why the hell would they sign her, the major headcase on the WTA, in a lifetime contract?! :shock: Sorry, but this just confirms that WTA is all about how a girl looks and not how she can play.

    Probably a smart move by Adidas to swoop in on her to extend the deal to a lifetime deal...assuming the cost of doing so is actually lower now that she hasn't been performing as well as she used to...but still commands a following amongst fans...

    I've always wondered why Adidas didn't give her the Stella McCartney line when they pulled it from Kirilenko...

    No offence to Wozniaki...but wouldn't Ivanovic be a better "model" for the Stella McCartney line?

    yep, I completely agree. As long as you have a pretty face in the WTA, your set.

    Woz has the better body/face combination.

    Being pretty does help indeed, she's in the swimsuit edition of SI. Not too shabby :cool:

    Ana won the French, AK won squat. One hit wonder. Yeah she's very hot but her tennis career is over for the most part.

    I would give anything to take a shower with her.

    :(

    And a better shot at making it to the weekend!

    I'll pile on too. Anyone who doesn't think the looks component is a huge part of the WTA is on something...

    Don't count Sharapova out yet.

    Chrissy? Evert? Yeah, she's done. Unless you mean marrying again... :)
