The Most Beautiful Tennis
'Beautiful' is, of course, one of those words. ANd given the context, I have to admit out front I'm a Venus fan. Not in any rational way either. I'm just there.
That said, who among today's active players produces the most beautiful tennis? I am NOT asking who looks the most beautiful. Maria Kirilenko in a bathing suit is quite fetching, but her tennis is pedestrian. I'm not asking who does good, but rather who looks good doing it.
Serena Williams, in the infamous 'Beatdown Down Under', produced beautiful tennis. The kind of 'beautiful' one would have to be an assassin or a serial killer to appreciate in all it's glory. She killed.
Evonne Gooloagong was so .... there's no other word ...beautiful .... when she was moving. They talk about players moving well now, but it's not even the same solar system. The only recent plyer who came close was .....Anna Kournikova
Kournikova reeked sex just breathing. But she also played tennis like ..... I wanna toss around words like Donatello and Botero and Stravinsky. But I'll settle for ... she looked REAL good doing it.
These days, putting aside the days when Serena decides to be so dominant it'ssublime, my only other candidate is Ana Ivanovic. She's got ... flow.
NOTE: Honorable mention to Gisela Dulko.
Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
