    He is right. The women cant play tennis these days. They suck. They are only there for sexual appeal. Next.

    Are you kidding? I'm going to opening day at Wimbledon tomorrow (can't wait!!!) and I am looking forward to seeing two things:

    1) ATP players playing

    and

    2) WTA skirts, butt and legs


    go figure...

    He's right to a point. I've been on a show court and after Gasquet v Fish, Sharapova came on and emptied the place! Everyone went and looked on the outside courts only to come back when her match was over and Roddick was on. The last few games of her match that I saw were memorable only for the laughs she got from her stupid grunt.

    This was also the same tournament that people watched Federer practice in their hundreds, only to move along to watch Ferrer practice when Federer's time was up and a top female came onto court next.

    It's nothing personal against women, they just can't play tennis to the same standards as the men can. Why would you want to want Jankovic and Safina when you can have Federer and Nadal?

    Most of the girls are better at tennis than turning me on, that's for sure.

    So if the Wimbledon girls are all about selling sex, what do the girls at Madrid do?

    LOL at Serena's response. Michael Stitch is talking about hot girls, so serena has nothing to do with the subject.

    They can't play and they are not at all that attractive. With all of the grunting, shrieking, glares, they just don't look that attractive to me. The old days, female players, sure didn't hit the ball as hard, but they were at least attractive to look at, but now, man these female players seem like they can bench press their opponents with their screams.

    Yep, I don't have any comment on what Stich said, other than this might be the hottest pic I've ever seen.

    I have a question. Are players like Serena, Venus, Jankovic, and Safina aware of the terrible slump women's tennis is in?

    I enjoyed watching players like Hingis and Henin and even Mauresmo for that matter. Couldn't stand Davenport however.


    I just can't believe how one-dimensional the women's game is. If one player in the top ten can learn to just attack and approach the net, and use variety such as short angles, slices, and drop shots, she'll probably be number one and win slams consistently.

    his comments might have caused more of an uproar except...he is right. sigh. women's tennis is rather awful and most seem to buy into the old Agassi- Image is everything line.

    and yeah that pic rocks:twisted:

    No, they are too busy getting high on themselves to really look at what you ask objectively. They will never see things that way, no way in hell. Serena things women tennis is great because of her and her sister alone.

    Hmmmm............no wonder Wimbledon insists on the players wearing white. You can almost see the nipples when white shirts get wet. Somehow I don't find that to be particularly sexy though.

    Honestly, girls can wear anything and men will find it sexy. There's nothing Wimbledon can do to conceal a woman's sexuality. They try to use burqa's in some country and I'm sure there guys talk about a hot pair of eyeballs he saw earlier. I mean, what are some of the things men find sexy? Just about everything. Bikini? The opposite of what a librarian would wear and both are stereotypes of sexiness. Teacher? Nurse? Female cop? Submissive? Dominant? Everything in between. There's nothing that can be done.

    Men are visual. And that's why they play far better tennis at ATP.

    Tennis is hardly the closest. Women don't play anywhere near as well as men.

    Serena thinks women's tennis is more exciting to watch than men's.

    If Gasquet gets done for giving a kiss to a blow-up doll, I imagine what should that Serena's statements provide enough evidence to ban her for this life and next.

    Stich is on drugs if he considers the women there to sell sex. Who the **** are they selling that to?

    He needs to get out more.

    Serena, Vaidisova, Kirilenko, and Ivanovic are somewhat attractive in their own ways I guess. Most of the rest are dogs though. The current womens tour provides neither much good tennis or even the sex appeal part though. I dont even know what it provides anymore.
