    Serena has definitely always been better at fashion.

    There's nothing sexy about Venus.

    ..which can be accurately applied to 99% of the woman ever to play professional tennis.

    I think there are plenty of sexy/cuties out there on tour. Let's see: Dulko, Wozniacki, Radwanska, Szavay, Chakvatadze, Kirilenko, Cibulkova all come to mind.

    Wozniacki, Radwanska, Szavay? Okay, the rest might be considered above average for tennis terms but those 3? No way.

    Think about how may women have played pro tennis from its origin up to the present day, then consider how insignificant your cited players are.

    Compared to Venus?? They are all gorgeous; they may not all have the most beautiful faces (remember they have little or no make up on court and their hair pulled back) but damn good bodies. Powder and paint makes a girl what she ain't!

    There's something wrong with you if you don't think Dulko is at least mildly attractive.

    Its a Madonna remake into a tennis outfit. Bad fashion can happen anywhere, without prior notice.

    He's probably more interested in whats happening in the men's locker-room (he posts 'odd' updates every once in a while)...


    Venus looked pretty hot in her skin sheer outfit a little while back.

    She looks 'aight' in this new one. Not too bad, at least she getting some attention, without going too far.

    Venus certainly has a nice body. Your judgment is clouded by hate!

    Don't forget the autographed tennis ball...

    I can see how some people might find her too skinny, but even then you can't say she isn't pretty.

    Rodge does, he is the only player in the world who's facial expressions does not change dramatically during the shot.

    By the way, I was talking about her dress, not her looks in the pic.

    She looks like a cross between Sugar Ray Leonard and Dennis Rodman in a "can-can outfit".

    Why all of the hate with the Williams Sisters? They aren't the best looking, but I assure you that in a match, 99% of us on these boards would be lucky to win more than one point off of them...

    This further proves my point. Regardless, why make fun of them? In the end, their the ones with millions of dollars from playing tennis, because they have talent, and you don't...

    Just when I am starting to think this section has taken a turn for the original we have yet another thread criticizing the looks of a female tennis player. Who cares? I have a feeling we're not dealing with a group of critical Brad Pitts here.

    We can say whatever the hell we want about them. Just because we cant make millions of dollars a year doesnt mean we are worthless human beings that dont deserve an opinion. A doctor, engineer, lawyer, etc. all have talents and are gifted individuals yet they dont ever get close to making the amount of money as the WS and other tennis players. These players are not gods and goddesses and neither are they above criticism. I couldn't careless about their million dollar pay checks.

    This is a good response to that post. The fact that who makes what does not make them or their opinion better or worse than others and let me add that I respect what Serena and Venus have done to get where they are today. They come from a poor family, started tennis on a court where they had to step on broken beer bottles to get to the ball, but they had someone who believed in them and insisted they could succeed. And there is no doubt in my mind that there are numerous people in this world with more talent than today's top players but because of the circumstances either never picked up a racket as a pro or could not afford to follow up. They may watch tennis, write about it or even wander around forums like this so who are we to say that even their opinion has no value just because they are not making millions.

    I don't know if debasing someone's appearance is exactly criticism. I understand that fashion and image are apart of an athletes life who has reached a certain level of prestige or fame... (which in a way counters the point that some have made the Venus essentially looks like a gargoyle)... but making 'ugly' comments is not necessary and ultimately makes the player look better in most people's eyes.

    Obviously appearance, and how it is judged, is more of a factor when it comes to female athletes - which can be an advantage (i.e. Kournikova) or a disadvantage for them....
    And Venus is certainly not as universally accepted as 'pretty' such as Sharapova is, but I don't see how anyone would not put her at least in the 'realm' of athletically attractive. I mean she has a very nice body - tall, lean, statuesque, great legs and overall shape (and at least she has some breasts).

    Lets be real - have any of you seen her in blue jeans?

    Nice to know that your reading comprehension is amazing... My point about no talent was directed soley towards tennis talent. My post was not directed towards doctors or lawyers, because they have talent specifically different from tennis. THIS IS A TENNIS BOARD, I was referencing their talent on tennis...

    Wozniacki looks so happy when she smiles, which is all the time. Best looking WTA player, it's all subjective anyways

    She looks like she could be the laughing sun in the Teletubbies after her tennis playing days are over. Not that it's necessarily a bad thing.

    What point? You have no point as the talk in the thread is about her dress and naturally people talk about how people look.
