This is the side of sport I DON'T like!

I don't like this pic.
Its of my favourite player, and she looks gorgeous (as always).
So, WHY don't I like it?
Its because this photo is just another photo oppurtunity!!
Yes, she's signing an autograph, but she's looking at the camera (having alreadt signed her name!!!) and she's waiting for the photographer to take the picture.
I don't like this side of tennis and sport in general. Almost everything now is done for the photographers to take a picture of it and put it in some paper and say 'Oh look, isn't she a lovely player signing all those autographs.'
It SUCKS big time!!!!!!!!!

I like sport for the actual sporting side of it.
Does anyone else hate the commercial side of sport?

Yes, but it does make for some great pictures and keeps the sport alive.
