Good to see the truth continuing to win out here. We'll keep an eye on things nonetheless.
Looks like the numbers are still close to where they should be.
She Is Hot !!
She's above average at best. Great legs and ok looking face. She's not really THAT flat. I've seen flatter (the other 85% of the WTA) But shes kinda too massive for my taste. I've seen her up close, she doesn't look that bad in my opinion.
She is clearly hot. She has a nice face and she is in incredible shape. If you saw her at the beach, and didn’t know who she was, you would certainly say she is, at the very least, above average.
We expect female celebrities to be really hot, and when one isn’t, we unfairly call her ugly. We place higher standards on them than we do on, say, our friends.
For example, so many of my friends called Brittney Spears ugly after she gained 15 pounds, yet called their female friends, who were heavier than Brittney, hot.
If Sharapova was not famous, and just an ordinary girl, everyone would consider her to be hot, but, because she is a celebrity, people are much more critical.
Nothing special about her. If I was 15 yrs younger, may be...But then, when you're 16 and have hot blood running through you, pretty much anything can be hot. Plus, you don't really care for a girl's attitude or demeanor at that age.
For a woman that's won 3 grand slams and was the #1 women's player in the world, she's quite attractive... and if I'm not mistaken, looks like she has put more weight on her slight frame, as of late.
I can't believe I never voted or posted in this thread.
As a straight red-blooded male, in real-life terms, she really is hot and sexy. No argument.
It's only in internet-land could that poll option not be in the lead right now. I bet most of the people who haven't voted for that option are 30-somethings still living in their parents basements.
I think it's rather the opposite. Experienced and older men realize Sharapova is way above average, whereas these teenage no-nothings live in a fantasy world populated with imaginary Victoria's Secret models.
Alessandra Ambrosio is not imaginary.
Perhaps. But to think anyone remotely like her is found walking around campus is definitely imaginary.
In the meantime, keep those votes coming, folks!
Honestly I voted about average, but I think she is 'above' average, but not 'Way' above average.
If you think she's above average, are you sure you want to cast your vote for average? Think of what an average woman looks like in the real world, and then think about Sharapova looks like.
I suggest you think about this one long and hard and do some soul-searching tonight, BajeDuane.
I think she is above average, but not WAY above average. And there is no Above Average category, so I explained why I voted Average.
Yes, I recall your explanation. I just want you to think this one over a bit and ask yourself some tough questions on this one. Remember, your vote will remain for all to see for all time. But more importantly, in the end, you will have to answer to yourself most of all.
Are you really sure "average" is the best answer here?
She is well above average.
Well, there ya go!
Alessandra Ambrosio or Megan Fox?
Imagine you've just walked into a reception...you grab an aperiitif...and 'settled-down' into conversation with your friends....
Suddenly, Sharapova enters the room...dressed-to-kill and minus the 'sweat-zits' (she is after all, a world-class 'jock' who's been playing tennis on 'the big stage')....again, all "gussied-up...with make-up....and strutting her '6-foot-world-class-jock-legs/bod' to boot:
as she walks into the room: would you give "it" a 2nd-look? ... or not?
Exactly. These kids would be falling all over themselves if a woman this attractive were in their presence.
She's pretty (she lives in South Bay, and well there's a lot of gorgeous women in South Bay . . . can't complain), but I don't get why anybody needs to make generalizations about other people just because they don't think she's "amazing." Shrug.
In this neck of the woods, Heather Mills walking in with a pegleg gets a second look.
makes an old dish rag look good in comparison
Just look at here without make-up uhh so scary. Scary-average. If you got the joke in that say I.
Which of these faces do you find more attractive? Hint: The face on the left is world class supermodel Christy Turlington. Me, I just melt looking at the face on the right.
I would take Maria over the supermodel any day.
turlington is one of the world's great beauties, this is an outrageous comparison. a little older now, but still . . . ridiculous.
a buddy of mine was on a shoot with a crew who do a ton of fashion work. he asked somebody, the DP, make-up girl, whoever, who the one person is that they shoot, that requires the least work to get camera ready? instantaneous response was turlington. they said she walks in, and they're like, um, here's some lipstick . . . whatever, you're good to go.
Okay, we'll give Turlington a racquet and let her wear some makeup and see if that helps....
Nope...I'd still pick Maria.
I've seen pictures of Christy Turlington (or was it Linda Evangelista?) and I can't believe she was a supermodel. I have always thought that men and women from the former Soviet Union are beautiful.
She took that recipe off the back of a bag of chocolate chips. I feel betrayed!
I see the correct choice is still prevailing.
Way Above average.
1) Her face is pretty and above average, but only like a 7.5-8/10 (8 at best IMO).
2) Her chest is nothing to write home about.
3) Nice, tight stomach. 10/10
4) Really long and nice legs 9/10
5) Not a bad ass 7/10
Something about her is remarkably attractive to me though. I like her personality (or what we see of it) too.
Agree that she is above average. Great legs and a nice personality to go with the looks.
So....way above average, huh?
I'm sayin' just above average for her age, because of the bad skin. But from a distance, I do agree with the concensus.
Though when she plays tennis, she drops a few notches in my opinion, on account of her heinous game and screeching. Meanwhile, more pedestran types like Juice-teen Heinous, Roberta Vinci, Emilie Loit, Amelie Mauresmo and Francesca Schiavone go up a few notches due to their stylish and attractive way of playing the ball and the court. Kimmy C and Caroline Wozniacki get personality points.
I wonder if it works that way with us men. Like, does an average-looking guy like Nalbandian climb a notch or two because his game is fluid? Does a Jan Michael Gambill drop a few notches because of the two handedness and the ungainly movement? Does a Roger or a Rafa climb a notch or two because he represents the game so well?
Not really mine to comment on (as a straight dude), but I wonder if/how women spearate looks from tennis aesthetic.
I dispute that it works that way with women. There ain't nothing Henin can do on the court that's going to make me find her physically attractive, and nothing that Sharapova can do that makes her less so. I think things like personality and style are beyond the scope of our inquiry here.
Maria was better back then 2005-2006... Her height doesn't make attractive off court...
I don't know where you guys are coming from, but she's way above average by the standards here. She's a solid 8 IMO.
I would like to know where all of the people who are rating her "Average" live. It must be a beautiful country.
Post of the year. Shame the mods will delete those in about 5 minutes.
There is no country where Maria would not be considered well above average in looks. While she has at times had problems with acne, which is oddly common on the WTA, she is very pretty in person.
The only possible issue is that she is very big. While she is fit and very attractive, she is bigger than 80% of the guys you meet. Some may have issues along the lines of the "man hands" episode of Seinfeld.
She doesn't wear make up on the court so yea she is natrully amazingly hot many Hollywood stars look just ok w/o makeup ........... Oh Maria
Glad you enjoyed. They're my two favorite tennis photos of all time. Of all time.
Actually, those photos have been up on the Guys Only thread for some time - credit to JBF#1.
Now go get a haircut.;-)
OF ALL TIME!
Nah, my hair is sexier than those camel toe shots lol
Sharapova looks stunning from a distance but once you see her up close not so much ...
Walk Maria while "working the room" on the arm of a ******* or a *******:
WHO wouldn't give a 2nd LOOK at "Maria" (in an evening dress and "jazzed-up")...well?...fanboys?....oh, and and:
WHO's got somethin' better hangin' on their arm on a Saturday night?
..i didn't think so...
I was thinking between these two \/
Way above average
(Above Average) = My Vote
