Dushevina, Makarova, and The Vez.
Normally that would be true but unlike previous "glam" occasions, this time none of them really look bad (imho). None of them appear tranny-ish or downright tacky (for example black leather pants, no tight dress with leopard-print motief... etc etc). This time they all did a better job of looking classy. You can nitpick and complain about minor things like the oily makeup but who cares. It may also have something to do with the tempreture, apparently it was very hot in Doha (Dementieva is clearly sweating).
Well most of the top ten ranked players look fat cuz they ARE a bit fat, the not-so-tall ones at least. You didn't know this before? Notice how the players with the most perfect figures are nowhere near the top ten. Must be a pattern that the most successful players tend to be either slim and taller-than-average, or else, if they have average height then they tend to compensate that by being wider. I guess that's cuz women are women and not men, i.e. they are naturally fatter than men (model women don't count as they are not normal (normal people eat food). Since they can't just be "ripped" like men they need a bit of fat in order to generate extra power to bash the damn ball hard which, after all, is what they have to do a lot nowadays.
I don't think any of them look really fatter than usual except perhaps Stosur (see below) she may have gotten fatter recently (from the French open final onwards). But the rest are just their normal size, which is chubby to begin with. And all of this without taking into consideration any "photo effect" that sometimes makes people look fatter than they really are.
Aww, she looks all alone.
Perhaps she needs some company...I'm free all week.
I still can't get over how lovely Frannie S looks in those photos.
Not at all. Muscle gives them the power to bash the ball. Fat does nothing. Think about marathon runners. They often have under 5% BF (even some women) yet they run hours on end without a problem. Fat is a remarkable energy storage mechanism and you don't even need 1% BF in reserve to supply the energy to run an entire marathon.
That being said they aren't super lean because there is no reason to be super lean, especially in womens tennis. Rarely do their matches even go over 2 hours. Tennis, unless played at a very high level with a similar opponent really isn't a great form of fat loss cardio. People so often confuse being very lean with being in shape but that is often very far from the truth.
Jeezus, man! The aspect ratio of that photo must be out or something!!
Ah yes Azarenka showing the new way to wear bra straps...nothing to do with trying to get male attention i'm sure lol
Not sure what to make of that but isn't it the case anyway that someone with a bit of fat also happens to have more muscles than she otherwise would have? Just like, the fatter the cow the more meat there is also, no?
Is it a coincidence that Marion Bartoli's dad/coach, who happens to be some kind of a medical professor makes sure that Bartoli keeps a precisely measured amount of fat in order to maintain a certain degree of power (which presumably otherwise can only be acquired by spending a lot more extra hours in the gym)?
Or is mr. Bartoli less of a doctor and more or a witchdoctor? :>)
Why would you question her fathers professional knowledge instead of her love of food sweets etc?
There is a big sacrifice these ladies make to stay fit enough to play with the best in the world.
More mass more power baby, just gotta balance the fitness to get around the court, trust me I know I have fluctuated between 260 and 190 lbs since I was 11yo.
From the descriptions I've heard, he's a little of both.
The eyes have it.
There's a reason they call her Fransexa.
no, really... there is. I just don't know what.
Wozniaki's forehead is to big
balding older dudes (like myself) might not think that's a deal breaker. :razz:
Tanlines, fiveheads, and unshorn loins--is there anything the Internet brigade can't spurn a woman for?
You're not the first to think so. Personally, I don't think so nor am I the first to say so.
It's time again to play Name That Booty!
Since you guys have shown amazing skills at this before, there will be no hints.
Dulko, Kirilenko and several others -- maybe. Most on the tour are quite a bit higher -- even higher than 20%. 20% on a woman is not really all that bad. However, too many are much higher than that.
Looks like Anna K.
I don't see no booty in this picture.
No, it's Ashley Harkleroad's booty. The other pic of course is Anna K.
Yes I think you just misinterpreted what I was illustrating. The fat isn't giving more power. Obviously muscle is what gives power. I made the point about marathon runners to illustrate that even a remarkably small amount of fat is more than sufficient to play even the most grueling tennis match.
Females naturally carry more fat and less muscle. So as you say to hold on to that muscle (power) they generally have to eat / hold some fat. It isn't the fat that is directly supplying the "power."
She has a big forehead and a hairline that is way back there lol. I don't understand why she pulls it back so tightly. I think she looks much better with her hair down. To each his own I guess.
SO MUCH WIN!!!! I tilt my hat to you .
Yep, you guys are good! Your prize? More pics from the Champions Series event in Surprise, AZ this weekend.
Jelena The Body Jankovic
We all work, do the best we can every day to make a living, try to be good people, and we seek fun, meaning and special experiences in life.
I just want to thank you for posting this picture.
You see, to ME, Jelena Jankovic is the hottest woman in tennis.
I was careless in my typing. I meant: Jelena The Body Jankovic. I promise never to again call her out of her correct name, Jelena The Body Jankovic.
Jelena The Body Jankovic is the hottest woman in tennis. Tennis is the most popular womens sport. And, athletic women are the hottest of women. Accordingly, Jelena The Body Jankovic is the hottest woman on, let's say, Earth, although depending on the future findings of scientists concerning extra-terrestrial life, that statement will may also apply to other planets.
I just want to thank you. Sincerely -- for posting that picture. Of Jelena The Body Jankovic. Please post more. Please.
I could care less about the contrarian opinions of others who may claim that other players are hotter than Jelena The Body Jankovic. To me, she is without equal. The body on Jelena The Body Jankovic could set off a smoke detector with no battery installed.
My point is this, and it is a simple one. Those pictures added spice to a long day, and I appreciate that you posted them. Thanks.
Ummmm...Cool Story Bro??? :-|
Now Flavia Pennetta is HOT
^^ IB1B4U, what's the point of posting mega-huge pix if there is literally nothing on it to see except some (rather nasty lookin) badonkadonk?
That kinda "centerfold size" is better suited for elegant profile shots, no?
No is right. There's always someone that posts thinking their taste is better than others. Maybe someone would look at your post and think, "What's the point of posting mega-huge pix if it will just illicit a yawn?" But this is a forum about best legs and other female issues, so any post of a good looking woman qualifies, NO?
Now let's see who's going to push their opinion and say, "Well those were ugly woman you posted."
If the majority of the people don't like the pictures that I just posted, then I won't post those types. But since the positive comments have out weighed the negative replies, I'll continue.
Jelena in response to Marvin
Vera in response to jerriy
