    Since all the other "old time" wta stars are pledging comebacks, why doesn't kournikova.... Now i know it has just been Hingis, but from what i have read, seles is debating coming back. And even if kournikova doesn't come back, why doesn't she comeback in doubles, it would be good for the game, and she can still volley well, maybe her and hingis again? whatever did happen with Hingis and Kournikova, why did they not play doubles together longer?

    i guess she doesnt have too and she doesnt have that much love for the game to return for one final match even, i mean shes rich, shes married to a rich dude, she just bagged a kswiss deal, i guess she doesnt really need tennis to pay the bills.

    She hurt her back, which affects her serve, and she is a mega-star model celebrity as is, so there is less incentive for her to return to the game, even if she were healthy.

    1. She'd get killed
    2. Her injuries are long-term
    3. She'd get killed
    4. She's making enough money now so what's the point?
    5. She'd get killed

    She passed her magic to Korolev and said "Evgeny, from here on you are the great one to achieve success and win slams that I did not win. I shall take my leave from protennis and it is my wish that you carry on the torch".

    has anyone seen the new K-Swiss ads featuring Anna? I bet most non tennis fans think she still is playing. Still racking in the endorsements.

    She was never hot. With the power of professional make up artists, world class photographers, anybody can look "hot." Kournie was overhyed. Looked alright, but carried herself well. She is as "hot" as Sharapova, Vaidisova, Ivanovic with the aid of makeup.

    The prettier girls are not hyped, but they're still the prettiest.
    Serena, Kirilenko, and Dulko spring to mind.

    ive been around a long time and i thought i had heard and read everything there is and would never be shocked again, but if you think serena williams is hotter than anna k then you are either blind or insane...

    its not all about the face, anna k circa 1999 had one of the most amazing bodies in the world, while Sharapova looks like a gangly stringbean with no curves at all. and Ivanovic has a gut, while anna k had a 6 pack.

    plus there was that attitude(like anna dating 30 year old hockey players when she was 16, that raised some eyebrows) While Sharapova & co seem like nuns.

    If she plays team tennis, then her back-problems must not be that bad!

    She just signed an endorsement deal with sports apparel manufacturer K-SWISS, so maybe a comeback is in the works…….:neutral:

    She has made too much money with endorsements to ruin that. How much money do you actually need?

    She will never be back because she was all flash and no substance and a bit of a head case besides. Talented? Perhaps. We will never know for sure though.

    I've seen her in real life and I've taken her pic before a match, after a match, and at a regular old hitting session. She was not wearing makeup at these times. Almost every guy and some girls that have seen the pics have marveled at how hot she is even without makeup. And I am not a worldclass photographer.

    I agree, the makeup and photographers help, but I saw Kournikova play in person and she was hot. The hottest female ever? Well, no. But, still hot.

    From some angles Sharapova can look OK, but I really think she's manish with her very broad shoulders. Vlaidisova I'll never understand. It's like everyone just looks at the blonde hair and thinks she's hot. She looks even more like man.

    Of course we all have our own opinions of who is and who isn't hot and we're all entitled to those opinions. Personally, I have a thing for Jankovic, but, then again, I like brunettes, and dark eyes.

    Serena was never hot. But back in '99 when she was lean, her body was smokin'.
