    Even before tonight's match there's a good number of nice ones in round 4:

    Azarenka
    Kirilenko
    Gorgeous
    Ivanovic
    Sharapova

    and probably some I missed. Not bad!

    Makes a nice change from the two hottest on the tour, Ana and MaKiri, getting ousted in r1 or 2.

    Hotness doesn't make up for the quality, style of play. I assume most of us watch the sport for the sport not for the looks.

    I watch for the sport, but for all the drooling on this board sometimes I think it's the opposite -- which I find especially ironic when those drooling make fun of us lady fans who notice how attractive the Men of Tennis tend to be.

    Yeah, nobody new though. Tsurenko would have been nice.

    Do you guys really find Azarenka hot? She's a bit too.. i don't know, manly, for me. I love the other 4 though. I'm a Masha fan, even though I don't find her the prettiest, she just has that tiny bit of arrogance that I like.

    Redfoo "supports" her like a padded sports bra! Sharapova would step on our Dunlops and u'd be smiling like Gimelknob!

    if you want to see quality and style of play you watch ATP.

    wta is just for looks, NOTHNG ELSE!

    And Azarenka is hot, her face is ugly but with a brown bag over it she'd look nice, amazing body.

    Remember, this is one of the demographics that the WTA caters to, and I think they're very conscious of that - it definitely informs how the women dress. Sharapova (though I don't find her especially attractive) has milked her sexy+strong brand better than almost anyone else in the game, creating a whole franchise out of it.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not immune - Ana Ivanovic matches get way more time from me than they'd probably warrant otherwise. Lucky for me, she actually seems like a cool person and is at least somewhat exciting to watch since she just goes for broke all the time and is actually capable of great shotmaking.

    Disagree. WTA at the AO is stupid and boring. Everyone plays exactly the same way.

    It was interesting while Kimiko Date was still around, with her weird continental grip shots and 1990s style court coverage. You can bet some of the girls lost to her because they were too dumb to figure out the variety in her game.

    I don't think that Azarenka has an ugly face... in fact I think It's very sweet. And she have big boobies.

    Apparently, her "variety" was not too complicated for Jovanovski to figure out, then snuff out.

    Apparently, you don't understand the difference between being an entertaining (not boring) player, and being a victorious player. Good work by Jovanovski, she deserved her victory.

    By rights, Date-Krumm should have been routined in straight sets by any first round WTA qualifier. The only reason she was able to reach the third round was because most of the current WTA regiment is dumb, and has sacrificed creativity for power. This is not a problem for people like you, but it happens to be a problem for people like me. So what?

    I don't think being unable to figure Kimiko Date out means you're "dumb", she's like a female John McEnroe.

    As a woman who likes playing tennis, I hate admitting this, but I also just can't get into the WTA no matter how hard I try. I can't even get as much out of it as you guys can since I can't get into the eye candy side of it.

    It was great in the Henin era of 2004-2007.

    I grew up watching Steffi and loved her matches. What we have today seems like a different sport.

    It adds no value to the quality of matches. WTA is still a snoozefest.

    lol.. sharapova is hot?
    Each persons taste differs. To me, ladies ~6 ft tall and flat chested are not attractive or hot.

    Ana's not an elite player by any means, but you gotta admit she goes for her shots and will occasionally have a period of brilliance before she starts firing off unforced errors everywhere. She ain't a pusher, and if she gets her head together, she can probably start getting far in grand slams again. She's fun to watch because you never know which Ana will come out each point - it'll be awesome or an epic fail, and the match probably won't drag on for too long.

    The extreme opposite of the pusher - the no-variety-ballbasher - is just as boring as the pusher. And these days, all the WTA consists of are pushers or ballbashers.

    I always find it odd she doesn't get more attention, she doesn't have the glamour of anna k I guess.
