Why didn't anyone make fun of Daniela's weight issues.

I never once recall so many post or jokes about Daniela's weight issues ever. I've always known there was a double standard and unfairness when it comes to the WS so I don't even know why I even started this thread, but I thought someone should have brought it up. I could have had a field day with Danielas weight or lack of but thought it would be unfair since I don't know what she was going through in her life at the time. In my opinion Daniela looked like she was on crack or maybe or maybe not I don't know but what ever the case I didn't feel like I needed to make fun of her. What about Maria has anyone questioned if shes to thin. Personally I have other questions about Maria. What about her age is she lying about that I think someone should look into that or her father does her abuse her mentally, physically or sexually. My point is when is enough is enough. I know some of you Serena haters dislike her, but why. Is it because she just to good for you to deal with or has she done something personally to you, what is it. I really don't know what all this hate is about.

Here's the difference: Dani's weight issue was problematic not just for her game, but for her as a person. It was a serious and unfortunaate problem.

Serena's weight is not a problem for her in her personal life. She needs to work on her fitness as far as tennis goes, but if she were not a tennis player she wouldn't be unhealthy in any way. The same does not apply for Daniela.

To make it simple:

Daniela's problem was serious, it was a disease.
Serena was just lazy to work out.

daniela fixed her problem serena has been like this since wimby her record since then has been brutal in my opinion i think she cares more about fashion than tennis and it shows in her weight that she hasnt been training so how bad does she really want it???? doesnt even come close to the old serena shes a totally different person

I think many people made fun of Dani calling here "Slovakian Skeleton" or "Daniela Skeletova" or "Skeletor" and other mean/nasty stuff

As for Serena , that girl has always had "haters" and some of them seem to get a rise out of annoying her fans here

yeah thats ridiculous

daniela's weight loss could have resulted in serious tragedy, hospitalization, even worse... she was depressed and her game was a manifestation of how her life was going, what with the divorce and other things... she was nearly anorexic, and thats a true problem

serena is over weight... is so obese? no... but she is a professional tennis player and part of her job as a tennis player is to remain in shape... her favorite temptation is zingers? yeah that proves my point... all the things that sports journalists have said about serena not being as interested in tennis as she was... you can see that in her eyes, half the time she just doesnt want to be on court, but put her on a red carpet premiere and she is smiling ear to ear

the two problems are hardly comprable... and im a fan of both daniela and serena, so dont give me immature "you're a serena hater" bullshit... grow up and face facts; serenas overweight, she needs to slim down and tone up or she wont ever reach the level in professional tennis that she reached at her height

Like I said before I don't way I started this thread, you people will come up with the same excuse no matter what the situation anything to justify your hate for Serena.

Daniela could have died as a result of her weight loss. Serena is simply a big girl, especially for a tennis player. Serena in her current state would be considered perfectly fine weight if she wasn't a pro tennis player. Daniela, in the state she was in, would have been considered sick no matter what career she was in.

Moreover, black posters regularly comment on the size of white players behinds.

well said too kwan

i was going to put in that daniela could have died too, but i thought that might have been extreme

point is serena's job is a tennis player, like kwan said... he weight is average for a regular person but as a professional tennis player she is clearly overweight due to laziness, and daniela's near anorexia is in no way comparable to that
