Kournikova vs Henin - Who's career would you rather have?

No, I haven't gone insane. (Meaning I was already there, or .... )

Seriously.

For a couple years, Anna Kournikova was (IMHO) considered by MILLIONS to be the sexiest woman on the planet. Justine Henin was one of the all-time great women's tennis players. And was to sex appeal what Kool-Aid is to the worldwide wine industry.

Now consider the obsession with looks, sex appeal, clothing, all the srface trappings, that so permeate tis forum. If you had no choice but to trade tennis lives with Henin or Kournikova, who do you pick? Remember, you get a couple slam trophies if you choose Koournikova. Not in singles, but her name IS on the big trophies in a couple places. and Henin has had one or two magazine spreads.

Who do ya wanna be?

Henin really. Kournikova is too much known as "that hot russian blonde who never managed to win a singles title.

Re: Kournikova vs Henin - Who's career would you rather have?

Tough choice.I'd rather have Henin's career obviously but as a person I'd prefer to be Ana (and enqrique is not in the equation cause he's not that big, in all the meanings of the word...).
Still has to think about this very important question.

Not even mentioning how harsh and frustrating it has had to be, those injuries that forced Anna to retire.

Well that's not the question But in the interests of gender equality I think a new thread should be made - Who would you rather be Pierre-Yves or Enrique?

Re: Kournikova vs Henin - Who's career would you rather have?

Erm, it should be "WHOSE" career. "Who's" is an abbreviation for "Who is", which clearly makes no sense placed before the word "career"
Thank you and goodbye.
