Smile If Maria decides to quit tennis, she'll still have a great career as a Supermodel?

The tall, beauteous and sexy Maria Sharapova (w/ ideal supermodel figure) can certainly give the current "IT girl" in the modelling world, Giselle Bundchen a run for her money.

She's not skinny enough and too conventional.

No not a chance.

The only current tennis players who could conceivably cut it as fashion models would be Ivanovic, if she were prepared to lose a little weight, and Hantuchova. Even then I'm not sure they would make it.

Re: If Maria decides to quit tennis, she'll still have a great career as a Supermodel

I think she could definitely become a supermodel, yes. And I don't really understand the comments above. Sharapova is not skinny enough to be supermodel??? If she was any skinnier she'd be Hantuchova! And Sharapova definitely has a more "supermodel" type body than Ivanovic (who's not skinny enough) and Hantuchova (who's too skinny). Hantuchova could maybe become a runway model, but that's the only type of modeling where being that skinny would be acceptable. Ivanovic could maybe do some men's magazines, but that's about it. If you want be to a supermodel, you need to have a body like Sharapova has---skinny, but also with some curves. Otherwise it's too limiting. Sharapova is the only one of the 3 of them who'd be able to do stuff like Sports Illustrated AND runway modeling. So yeah, definitely Sharapova would easily have the most supermodel potential out of the three of them.

Why the hell would she want to be a supermodel? Those women look seriously unhappy.

Besides, she makes $25 million a year off the court as it is.

Re: If Maria decides to quit tennis, she'll still have a great career as a Supermodel

How many supermodels make as much in endorsements as Maria does, already? Maria has too much muscle definition to be a conventional model. It is a different kind of slender. (better, as far as I can see).

In her doodles, she constantly talks about the great food, and restaurants in all the countries----she loves to eat. When she retires from tennis, I am sure she will continue to exercise and stay fit, but I doubt if she would want to starve herself to stay super skinny. She will just enjoy her life. She will have earned it.

Maria is an outstanding tennis player.
She is great to watch because of her intensity, looks, and simply great play.

This would never happen anyways. Maria wants to get involved with fashion, not being a super model. As for the poster above who said Ivanovic has a better chance of being a supermodel than Sharapova what are you smoking?

as model she could she could probably make it but a supermodel? no way. she would lose the muscle once she stopped playing so she would slim down (look at Anna K) but she is no way striking enough to be a supermodel.

Her face is too rounded and not unique enough. She's too tall. Average is 5'8 to 5'11. With 6'2 being the absolute max. She's about half an inch over that.

Re: If Maria decides to quit tennis, she'll still have a great career as a Supermodel

Erm... model yes, but supermodel... nah, not exactly.

She has the body, but lacking a fine pair of legs and the look...

Now, if she has legs like Dani, and the charming face like Ana.. Everyone would be dying to sign her up.

But then, she gains 25 million per year just for tennis alone. So, might as well keep playing or become a spokeswomen ("The Face") for tennis... she'll be paid much more.

Your sig picture exceeds the 200 pixel height limit.
