Re: What would BJK think of Sharapova (and co) and the Glamourisation of women's tennis?
Frankly, I don't think it makes that much difference. There may be women athletes who are sexy as hell in sports I don't watch ( e.g. basketball, golf) and that's not going to make me start watching them.
I know that there are some very attractive women playing soccer, which I love, but after watching the old women's pro league in the US I quit because I felt the product was not as entertaining.
I watch women's tennis because I enjoy it--I think it is one of the few sports where the ladies' product is as good as the guys. I've rooted for my share of pin-up girls like Lena D. and Carling Bassett-Seguso, but I also have rooted for King, Navritalova, Shriver and Garrison, none of whom were all that attractive IMHO.
I suspect I"m not atypical of fans on WTAWorld. I think BJK would be fine with people judging women's tennis on its own merits and watching it. That some of the women who play happen to be pretty is just icing on the cake.
Pass the duct tape and super glue. Lena's done broke my heart one last time.
