Re: How can tennis players become overweight?
There are some players on tour with womenly curves, Serena, Kuznetsova, Clijsters, Golovin, Ivanovic, Bartoli, Zvonareva, Petrova and all these players are in the top 25.
Not everyone is made to be skinny.
If these players are confident in their bodies, then it helps them to also be confident in their games.
Some of the best movers on the tour have a little meat on their bones.
I'm watching a good match against two players who wouldn't be considered the standard tennis body, they're moving well and playing smart.
I don't see it as a big deal.
These are women that everyone can relate to that can be good role models for girls.
That I can have a little weight on me and still play tennis.
That I can have a little weight on me and still be an athlete.
That I can have some weight on me and be a cheerleader.
