^^^ uh, wow. looks fun. ^^^
Piter does have a scar above the knee like that. (Ula does as well, but the gear doesn't seem to match.) Piter also is a Wilson user. I think IB1 has it right.
\suspect half the Tour has knee-surgery scars
Who is the top picture?
Ah yes,I considered her,but then I thought 'Nah,the legs look too long to be hers' because on court,her legs-torso ratio looks ridiculous
camel toe tennis
Does not Ursula Radwa have a scare right there above the knee...I bet she is her on the pics....nope just notice a Wilson racquet
No argument from me there.
Heidi's game is actually pretty strong. Her groundstrokes are beautiful, and I don't mean that as a pun. Technically, very elegant. She can hit winners in abundance off of either side when she is in that frame of mind. She also has a big first serve and is capable of having big serving days. Where she can be exposed, I think, is in her footwork and movement--when she played "Drop Shot" Laura Sigemund three weeks in a row this January, she got absolutely murdered letting Sigemund hit dinks off of forehand. Then again, who didn't?
Heidi is playing quite well this year--she nearly qualified at Monterrey this week, just losing to Wozniak in three. She was runner up at Port St. Lucie and has reached the quarters/semis of a few other ITFs. Her ranking is coming up. Unfortunately, it's a slow haul when you have to do it playing nothing but ITFs.
I just get the feeling that maybe she hasn't had the dedicated, top level coaching she might have had. I don't know if she ever went to one of those tennis academies or not, but I just get the feeling she was more of a home made project without the benefit of consistent professional coaching, as I have often seen her mom helping her at tournaments. She certainly doesn't have a big team around her.

Oh hell that was amazing!!!! Woz hiking up her dress was super hot
Cuteness overload from Genie in that pic
Sharapova in the black bikini pictures-I believe George Takei said it best: "Ohhhh myyyy"!!!! Dominique C doing yoga w/her dog is adorable. I don't remember Nadia Petrova being that...stocky.
The game is more fun when Petko's around.
Congratulations, Petko, on your win. Genie B-just another ridiculously gorgeous Canadian person...

love petkovic's legs
Would she be the fittest player in the WTA? She'd have to be one of the top few anyway...
Fittest, but one of the more injury prone :neutral:
For me is Camila Giorgi...
* 1 billion. I never tire of her personality. You could feel on the ESPN2 set how much they wanted her to win and enjoyed the post-match interview. Not that I really wanted to see Pam Shriver dance, but you know what I mean!
And yes, she wins the fittest woman on tour award. As one example, her abs are sick. Also, keep in mind that she doesn't have the advantage of being tiny like Giorgi. Petko is a tall girl with curves, so it's a particularly impressive achievement.
Andrea fans might also be interested in this sampling of congratulatory tweets that the WTA put together. Petko super popular with the other players because she is so fun and awesome.
Loves me some Petko!
Heidi El Tabakh
More El Tabakh...
wow, she's a stunner.
Next to Heidi, Ana looks pretty plain.
I wish Heidi was a better player and got some air time during televised matches. She is just my type!
I know, it is frustrating. She has had some decent runs lately in ITF events but needs many more points to consistently get into main draws at the higher level. Speaking of Ana, you would think that Team Adidas might pick up Heidi and try to help her development. I mean this gal would be a marketing bonanza for a sponsor that could help her with coaching or really whatever else she needs to become a top player.
If all else fails I will write the WTA and ask that she be granted 3 serves and a 40-love lead each game! :twisted: Then we will have a true wonder woman on our hands!
Like I said, Lynda Carter never had that good of a backhand....
That's another great thing about living in Florida, I guess--getting to see Heidi play a few times a year in ITFs. I trade you a dozen Bouchards and a six pack of Ivanovics for one Heidi!
