Kournikova criticized for being too thin

FROM GRAND SLAM TO.. GRAND SLIM!
Ex-tennis star Anna loses famous curves
By Julie Mccaffrey
FORMER tennis star Anna Kournikova stunned onlookers at a celebrity party with her new super-slender look.

The super-fit athlete who once put the bounce into world tennis with her curves looks to be following Hollywood's "lollipop lady" trend.

The 24-year-old's corset dress couldn't hide the fact that her boobs and bottom are shadows of their former selves.

Moscow-born Anna quit tennis for modelling in 2004.

Her advertising deals had already made her one of the highest earners on the women's tennis circuit, despite her never winning a Grand Slam title.

But now nutritional experts fear that Anna could risk ruining the stunning looks that made her fortune by slimming down too much.

Nutritionist Angela Dowden said: "Anna has lost at least a stone, probably more. She has lost muscle from her limbs, and her face is looking skinny, which is ageing her.

"At 5ft 8in, Anna's former weight of 8st 7lb was on the cusp of being underweight. But at 7st 7lb, her weight has fallen below a critical level which can affect fertility and sex drive."

However, Anna is delighted with her new look. She said: "My shape has transformed and I'm much narrower. My shoulders are smaller, my torso is slimmer and my legs leaner, which I really like."

Anna is due to marry Spanish singer Enrique Iglesias, 30, in June.

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

The girls look so much better when they are fit through tournament play.

There is no way Anna is 5'8. When she was playing they always had her listed at 5'9, and she is no where near that. I think her height is more like 5'6.

She does look think but not something to get alarmed over. She isn't working about and training the way she used to.

To skinny these days for me. A cuddle from Anna would be like cuddling a bag of kindling.
