Wimbledon Centre Court is for "Babes Only!"

There has been a lot of controversy this week over why very few of the top WTA players in the world played their matches at Centre court.


For instance the Williams' sisters played most of their Wimbledon matches on the "outer courts" even though they were the favorites to win the tournament. World number one and top seeded Safina also played most of her matches away from centre count.


Apparently, Wimbledon officials and the BBC now admit the reason for these interesting "court assignments" is because tournament officials wanted beautiful women to occupy centre court.


Therefore this tournament has beautiful women with little talent and no chance of winning at centre court to attract fans. While the less attractive talented players were regulated to the outside courts.


I guess even at Wimbledon, what you look like is more important than how talented you are.


Here are some links to interesting articles regarding the topic.

I'm sure Roger Federer has never been bumped from Centre court because the 50th ranked player on the ATP is more handsome.

thanks for the article and it's hard to believe in 2009.

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.

Don't worry about it, if people knew about this, they don't need to come in her and say anything.

Thank you very much. I do appreciate it.


Plus, if I could defend myself here for a bit.... this thread can't be any worse than the "million" WTA/Safina ranking system threads on the board, which all address the same topic!
