The last one, maybe, was Chris Everitt.
What about Tracy Austin?
Who is that? I am talking about top ranked players (say top 50).
Carline Bassett from the '80's? (or was she Canadian?)
Boy, you must be young. Tracy Austin won the U.S. Open at 16 and was in the Top 10 in the '70's and 80's, perhaps even #1. She's also the one doing the commentating for the women's matches at the U.S. Open right now on USA TV.
Who cares about the women? Why can't they produce any good-looking male players?
You wouldn't exactly consider either Jan-Michael Gambill nor James Blake ugly, would you?
What about lindsay davenport, i mean if you like girls that look kinda like fellas...lindsay has that suzanne lenglen quality to her...you guys that hung around the french open in the early 1900's will know what i'm talking about. Sen. Bullworth will probably pipe in with a rap about Serena right about now...
Please read my original post, I think the last one was Everittt. No one since late 80'.
good-looking players may not be an american but they're americanized. look at sharapova and kournikova.
Hmm, yes, I forgot about Blake. That's an exception then
It's true, the russian women are usually super hot babes, and the american women are hideous, what is up with that?
Why do you think the Germans and the French kept invading Russia? :wink: :lol:
Who is Chris Everitt
Ashley "Anna 2.0" Harkleroad ain't bad... and Carly Gullikson was mentioned a while back... I think it was in the Callypigian Queens topic in the old board. Besides, not all the Russians are great... I mean, you've got Kuznetsova and Petrova, and they look quite manish.
Speaking of Kuznetsova, looks like she just beat Davenport. Damn, I guess if Myskina isn't there to take out Kuznetsova, she's actually got a shot to go deep in tournaments.
Chris Evert was one of the top female players in the world in the 70's and 80's. She had a storied rivalry with Martina Navratilova. She also dated and was (I think) engaged to Jimmy Connors, and also married and divorced Connors' buddy, John Lloyd.
Why? Because you are incapable of beholding them? Not that there is anything wrong with that!

This is the MOST IDIOTIC statement I have heard in the long time.
I thought Gigi Fernandez was really pretty.
She probably didn't think you were to attractive....heh.
Yes, Carling Basset was a Canadian.
and Myskina looks a little bit like Marylinn Manson.
The best one however is Maria Kirilenko!!
I hear ya Vlad.
I refuse to sit here and allow my country, these United States of America, be run down because some misinformed youngster on this board thinks we Americans cannot produce beautiful tennis players. What other country has a world renowned fashion designer playng in the top ten (almost)? What other country has a player that would wear boots to warm up before a major match? Is there another country with a female player with a booty the size of Texas? Give it up, guys and gals. Give it up for the only bonafied Diva on the WTA tour, the only cat suit wearing, hard hitting, blast serving child woman of tennis. I give you .............
Preach it, SC!! Kournikova, Sharapova and Kirilenko are bonafide hotties. But Myskina, Dementieva, et al.? Please!! Sorry to be mean but if you think those girls are hot, the standards must be pretty low. Take off the beer goggles.
Kirilenko, Oh baby!
So they have 3 bonafide hotties, and the US does not even have 1. I think that pretty much proves the point conclusively.
As been said: Ashley Harkleroad.
But the question should really be can we produce a top 10, good-looking female player.
the williams are the best looking american feamle top tennis players. venus coming in 1st. Watching the jen cap and serina match.. we lets just say serina was much kinder to the camera than jen cap was.. and when jen was younger she was such a cute kid.
WRONG! There are ten fugly russians for every ONE hot russian. There are just so many of them that there is a greater chance of one being attractive.
It's interesting that those who accuse others of having a prurient interest in tennis players seem to have that interest themselves.
Just wait till my daughter hits the pro tour. Expect her debut in the year 2020.
Here are a couple of pictures.
Answer to the Post:
Americans should learn from the Russians how to produce good-looking female players.
Not a prurient interest, just stating facts, let's look at pictures
of the 10 top russian women and the top 10 americans. and compare. Best way really.
Okay, but I thought it was supposed to be about the tennis?
I mean, the United States has produced some pretty good women's tennis players. Some great ones in fact!!!
Isn't that what is important? Doesn't matter how good they look if they can't play some serious tennis. We can go to the movies to watch matinee idols.
That's my motto for the ATP.
Hey, I can watch Orlando Bloom on my TV screen anytime; but I'd rather watch someone who can do something great with a tennis ball. :lol:
You must be the idiot if you didn't realize it was a joke.
BTW, the Germans and the French did, in fact, invade Russia many times in case you failed your high school history class.
Hey, even I've crashed or "invaded" parties to look for babes. Nothing new. Men have been doing it since the beginning of time. Ever heard of the Trojan War? :shock:
Yes of course, it is the tennis that matters, not the looks.
But in this thread, it is the looks that are being discussed.
Obviously, you haven't seen Meghan Shaughnessy or Chanda Rubin.
Again, I just want to point out that in the end, when it comes to tennis, looks don't matter. Results do.
If looks and results coincide, it's great. But it doesn't always happen that way.
And sometimes folks can support players who don't look the best but who have great results and great potential.
Happens all the time in sports. I would hope it happens in tennis as well. :?:
couch - you'd better get out there and look for your kid, 'cause she ain't there.
what about Renee Richards? i think she`s gorgeous!!!
Just saw Tracy Austin's old clip during the USO men's semi. She is sweet-looking, but I wouldn't say she is pretty.
Goober's on fire this weekend. Good timing! LMAO.
Our hotties don't play tennis because they don't have to do such things. They can just sit back and wait for us to buy them a drink. Why sweat and grunt playing tennis when you can be doing other things. Our hotties take the easy road by becoming models and reality TV stars. Practice 8 hours a day? Please!
Yeah, why PLAY tennis when you're a hottie when you can just DATE an American tennis player? Look at Roddick's last two girlfriends. Have you seen Mardy Fish's girlfriend? Whoa!!!!
A hottie can even get to sit next to Roddick in the latest revised AmEx commercial (now that he won't need the extra seat next to him on the flight for his US Open trophy).
Davenport's saggy skin and lousy looking posture make her look 60 years old. At least to me anyway.
I just went downstairs and she's taking a nap with my wife. You had me worried for a second.
Oh well, I thought I had this photo stuff figured out; I guess not.
Just remember the name Caroline in the year 2020.
Ashley Harkleroad? Tracy Austin? Lindsay? Chris? JCap?
Oh, c'mon!?!?!? Maybe for McDonalds Open or Taco Bell Challenger...We just got to give to the Russians...
Maybe Svetlana will apply to become an American citizen and tilt the balance a bit.
Umm which way?
Separate names with a comma.
