    You remember Borg's figure ? Incredible, almost as a swimmer's figure, small ass and waist, straight legs, wide shoulders, clean-limbed figure.

    Different sports give different reaction to the figure of a sportsman. Seems that tennis is not bad in that meaning since I never watched tennis-players with ugly figure. Did you see ?

    My vote goes: Aranxta Sanchez-Vicario (sort of bullet shaped)

    Men: Taylor Dent

    Monica Seles, who seemed very fit in her first few years on the tour - but in the past 5 years or so has evolved into a not-healthy for tennis shape. Also, when seeing her in person, it is remarkable how big she is - just a large body type, I mean.

    Big in an unhealthy overall way would be Mary Pierce. She is, literally, as big as a house - artificially and voluntarily so, it would seem.

    The most interesting shape for a male tennis player had to be my buddy Shlomo.

    Panova. her build looks a bit more suitable for weightlifting than for tennis. She looks like an olympic powerlifter in the 50kilo class.

    I say John Roddick even though he didn't do that well in the pro's.

    For women, definitely Amelie Mauresmo.

    Kim Clijsters is not unattractive, she is an athelete and has an atheletic figure, I have seen her in person in both tennis attire and street clothing, she is a physical specimen.

    This string is a little shallow and irrelevant

    I meant mostly men, but if you are talking about girls also I reminded Russian Linetskaya. She didn't have an ugly figure, she is very thick simply.

    An observation: you're not likely to get a lot of comments on men's physiques from other men on English-language messageboards. When asked to do a similar exercise on another board, any straight males who replied, usually started their comment with "I'm not ***, but....".

    I hadn't previously realised that some men aren't comfortable critiquing their own sex for fear of being labelled ****sexual; this is not usually an issue with women of whom some (myself included unfortunately) will be only too happy to comment on other females.


    On the topic, I wouldn't say Andy Roddick is totally the wrong shape for tennis, but I do find him heavy and clunky. On the women's side, I always get the feeling most of the top players are carrying quite a bit of flab (Venus, Henin-Hardenne the exceptions), but perhaps TV and photos do them an injustice. They usually do look thinner in the flesh.

    Davenport has a funky build. I think Capriati is built like a dude.
