Comparing tennis players to football teams!

M Sharapova is similar to Manchester United(greastest club in the world, most exciting to watch)

Williams sisters is similar to Liverpool(dominating days and best days long gone but still top quality)

Myskina is similar to middelsbrough(Man Utd's bogey team, good team with great prospects)

What do you guys think? Any more comparisons to add?

No, Real Madrid actually win titles.

Myskina * Henin-Hardenne * Zvonerava

Davenport - Dementieva

LOL at ManUre as most exciting
they are the MOST hated club in the world as well and not the most exciting
watching paint dry is more exciting than anything Manure do.

Yes, they are hated by many becasue of jealousy, so is Maria, therefore its a good comparison. They are also the BY FAR the best supported club in the world. You love them or hate them.

Just take a guess? I'll give you a few clues: The richest club in the world and the most well supported club in the world.

Don't know what "rich" means in this connection ...
No, AC Milan are at 2nd place only.
6 Champions League titles are impressive but Real has 9 of them. Recent ones in 1998, 2000, 2002. They can field the best player in the world, Zidane. And Figo, Roberto Carlos, Rául, Ronaldo, Beckham. Forget Milan.
Hell, even ManU is more popular than Milan!

Real Madrid - Steffi Graf ( World famous and wins titles )
Chelsea FC - Anna Kournikova...( Rich, Pretty to look at, Famous but lacking in titles )
Leeds United ( back in about 2000/01 ) - New crop of Russian players ( Up and coming )
Liverpool FC - Martina Navratilova ( Once feared but not so today )
AC Milan - Williams Sisters ( Won titles )
Porto - Maria Sharapova & Anastasia Myskina ( Surprise winners at FO and Wimby )
Barcelona - Momo ( Sorry bout this but Barcelona's got heaps of talents in their team but fail to win the big titles ...)
Celtic or Rangers - Lindsay ( Plays well on home ground....cue : Recent successes in the US )
Brondby - Ai Sugiyama and Alicia Molik ( Capable of springing surprises )
Bayern Munich - JuJu ( Won titles but recuperating from winless season )

Real Madrid in terms of fame is just a poor man's Man Utd. Real Madrid just buy players from us who are WAY past their best, eg Beckham.

Don't mean that Juju ain't a nice gal?
Just that she's recovering from a mystery virus and also an almost trophyless season..
Kinda like BM last season.
