Seriously Kournikova is such a shame for Tennis

As if Women's tennis is not already bad enough, Kournikova is just embarassing. Saw today a Exhibiton Mixed Doubles in Halle, where she played with Nicolas Kiefer against Scarlett Werner / Tomas Muster. And Anna was just so fuckin' horrible. So. Fucking. HORRIBLE!! I can't imagine what they payed her for this appearance, she's a shame. Even my 75 years old Grandmother who still plays tennis with her husband is better than this (seriously).

Thank god she retired that early.

How horrible was she exactly?

I'm sure the reason she sells tickets now is not the quality of her tennis.

well tennis really wasn't her speciality. She only used tennis for publicity.

Well that's true but I thought with a Wimbly Semi, multiple GS Doubles Champion, Miami Runner-up and former top ten player, she really could play tennis But yeah her FH is a mess, her serve was worse than Pin's, her movement was like a one-leg Hantuchova on clay and she really fucked up everything.

But I have to say that Scarlett Werner girl was really not bad

It's not surprising.. it's not like she trains seriously for these exhibitions....

Re: Seriously Kournikova is such a shame for Tennis

she used to be a great player, especially in doubles, loved to watch her, of course, she's shit now and I doubt players play their best tennis in exhibitions of this type.

Re: Seriously Kournikova is such a shame for Tennis

I figured with her playing Wimbledon Legends doubles with Hingis, she would have practiced a lot.
I've seen Anna in some WTT, and she was okay except for her serve

Completely forgot she is playing doubles with Wingis. Martina will be at her if she messes shit up.

She will embarass Martina on court.

In mix-doubles, the woman messing up is not as visible.

If Hingis has to make all the big shots, she'll probably enjoy that

She quit playing for real because she couldn't. Her back is totally effed up, so her game is going to be limited.

Re: Seriously Kournikova is such a shame for Tennis

I actually miss her somehow. I liked the trash talking of the 90s and early 2000s. These days the girls are so bland! Then people used to be so fired up for matches. It was about pride. Now eveeryone is about the fame, while not really working to bring more seats to stadiums and more eyeballs to screens!
And even though back then i was very critical of AK, i think she was a fairly good player who was burdened by her celebrity. She really should have won at least a singles tournament. The more time passed without winning it, the harder it became.. much like it seems to be now for Elena Dementieva and Jelena Jankovic at slams.

Take care of your character. Reputation will sort itself.
