imagine WTA stars playing a sport other than tennis...

this morning I dreamed that I went to a LA Lakers game, and Patty Schnyder was playing point guard, scurrying around the court dribbling the ball between her legs and making behind the back passes like Tony Parker or Steve Nash. So I started to think, if the top WTA players were athletes in another sport, what would they be playing?


Patty Schnyder - basketball (point guard)
Venus Williams - track (high jump, 400 meters)
Justine Henin - football (striker)
Lindsay Davenport - volleyball (middle blocker)
Amelie Mauresmo - track (decathlon)
Serena Williams - boxing (dont tell me you can't see Serena beating the crap out of people)
Maria Sharapova - football (goalkeeper)
Anastasia Myskina - figure skating
Daniela Hantuchova - track (distance running like 5K or 10K)
Elena Dementieva - volleyball (outside hitter) OR track (400m)

any others?

Justine did play football (soccer for the US) in a boys team.

Maria Sharapova, Nicole Vaidisova and Lindsay Davenport will make good basketball players

neither of them have the right physique for 100m, to be honest I cant think of any tennis players that could make really good 100m sprinter. Venus and Dementieva would be good in 200 and 400.

actually Serena would have a good 100m physique if she trimmed down a bit.

I can imagine Ree playing ice hockey! If I saw her angry face glaring at me behind a helmet as she came speeding my way I would probably just drop and play dead

I can only imagine Ana Ivanovic as a swimmer would be hot

Pretty good option for those 2. They have a good build and the movement for rugby.
